Title: Top box not fitting on standard bracket???
Post by: Weideman on May 29, 2014, 08:32:04 pm
Hi Guys,

Got myself panniers and top box for my 2007 BMW adventure. The panniers fit perfectly, but not the top box.

It seems that I require an additional plate/brackets to mount the top box. The flat surfaces (as with the panniers does not fit the round bar obviously).

Thought the would fit the standard adventure brackets? Its BMW top boxes.

Can anyone please advise me on this?

Where to get such a mod?  (joburg/pta/witbank)

How much about?

----Also, my one engine gaurd is broken and would like to get a 2nd gaurd or whatever as they are apparently very expensive?

Where?    (joburg/pta/witbank)

How much about?

THANKS guys, appreciate!!

you will need a topbox bracket to fit to the rear carrier frame for the OEM BMW topbox

Not sure how much, but i suspect it to be pricey.

BMW can assist with the bracket and mounting hardware
