Top box from 800GS Adventure to fit R1200GSA
« on: November 17, 2015, 04:21:53 pm »
Hello all you LC people.

I have this top box setup on my 800GSA.  is there an adaptor bracket or some such thing that I can use on the 1200GSA so that I don't have to buy a whole new box?

I see these bits and pieces that may work?

Just buy a bracket from BMW, if it is a BMW box, or ping Zebra or ChrisL. They will definitely be able to help you

If its a touratech/bmw box it will just clip onto the existing GSA LC.

That's what I thought!  not according to BMW.  The mount on the GSA LC isn't as wide as the one on the 800GSA.

I just cant accept that I have to fork out for another box when mine is 100%.
