     :033: anyone got a instruction manual on how to fit the OEM top box on the back bracket.

    May be a bit stupid question but what end goes in first, clip it then slide it forward. 🤣

    Dont have a top box for the Gen2 model as yet, and didnt have a BMW one for the Gen1 either.

    Usually, they slide towards the front of the bike into securing lugs and then snape down and lock below the key barrel area.

    Without sounding an arse.... :164:, is it not obvious as i'd guess there is only 1 way to secure it matching the fittings...?
    Therapy...

    You'll never see a motorbike parked outside a psychiatrists.

    Yes (Gen 1) I got the slide forward part but then the "front" lugs seems to be hard to get in holes. Tried both ways and then it got dark and lightning was not helping, I'll try again as I may have misses the key lock area.

    Cheers
