K1300S Luggage Rack retro fit to K1200S

Gday fellas.
Ive just purchased a genuine BMW K1300S Rear Luggage Rack to retro fit on my 06 K1200S.
Do I need to replace my OEM pillion grab rails with modified ones to accept the luggage rack?
I also have OEM panniers which I sometimes fit.
Thanks for any advice and best wishes.

The K13s tail rack kit includes new grap rails due to how the flat section attaches. Whether or not this kit will fit onto the K12S or if they changed the mounts or body panels, I have no idea, but on the K13S, you do need to remove the old grab handles and replace with the ones in the kit. Others can weigh in on whether the luggage mounts are the same or not from the 12 to the 13, though I assume they are.

Received from the US, and fitted. A great little rack that doesn't stand out on the bike. I can confirm that the grab handles are different from standard K1200S though, by about 4 inches longer.
Now to fit my new K1300S tail light to my K12. No more baboons backside!

Best wishes all.
