K12RS vs K12LT Panniers

Can the panniers from a 2001 K1200LT be mounted on a 2001 K1200RS without any modifications? Does anyone know of any decent aftermarket panniers that will work on the RS that won't cost an arm and a leg and half of a liver?

Not a chance. The LT bags are much larger and the mounts are not the same. On the RS the muffler would get in the way of the left bag even if they did mount the same. Just keep watching Ebay. The RS and GT bags pop up from time to time. Some are kinda scuffed up, but would work. You can always get them repainted, and the small parts (lock, handles, latch mechanism, seals, etc) are still available from BMW.

K12LT panniers are not detachable.

Are there any issues/limitations with regard to model year of KRS and/or KGT that would affect pannier interchangeability? For example, would a side bag from a 2002 K12RS fit my 2001 K12RS?

Thanks for the responses guys!

All the 1200rs and 1200gt bags are the same, with the same mounting system. The only real difference is the later GT bags were painted to match the bike. All the RS bags were black. But they are quite interchangeable.
