luggage rack for the K1200S ?

Other than the rack offered by twistedthrottle.com, has anyone seen a tail or luggage rack for the K1200S?

Some people have gone on to put the K1200R rack on the S.

The rack bolt on points line up exactly with those that are there for the handrails of the S, but it takes cutting a bit of the plastic covers on the back of the bike since the holes where the rails come through don't line up with those of the R rack and hand rails.

There used to be some pictures on this forum of a bike done that way, but I couldn't find them so here's a link to another forum with the pictures.

I suspect that you would have to be very talented in the plastic cutting skills area in order to ensure that it looks clean.

Thanks, HDF. At the moment, though, I'm not prepared to do any cutting on any of the body work. I like this motorcycle too much!

As soon as my 06' S arrives (this month I hope) I intend to install the SW-Motech rack. When the wife wants to go for an all day ride I will then put the Krauser K-4 top case with back rest pad on that. The rack does not seem to be too obtrusive since it is black. But the Krauser adapter that bolts onto the rack is painted silver. Guess I will have to wait and see what this set up looks like since I have not seen any photos of an S with this configuration.

Thumbs up

Run a Ventura rack on the KR, can have a small flat rack or the higher one that you can throw the soft luggage on.. and it allows me to still use the BMW panniers.

Mines on now.
Mount hand rails, then put tail light/ brake light on, then upper luggage rack. FYI
I first did the rails then the rack - then tried to get the brake light through under the rack NFG
rails,brake light,rack

I have a design coming on the scene. I will look into becoming a vendor on the site to post them for sale. Pictures will follow in a week or two.
