When I bought my new K1200GT in 2007, the dealer attached the 49 liter top case and probably threw away the thick clear tape (pads?). By the time I got around to reading the manual that came with the top case (I read the KGT manual first, of course), there was about two months wear on the black plastic parts of the rack. It wasn't much, but you could see the buffing and scratches.
I had to ask several times for the pads, and finally got them from the dealer, but there is some wear that won't go away.
