Hi All

Just a quick question, will the standard top box from a LT/RT fit the RS? I assume it's the same bracket on all of the K's (I've looked through as many pic's as possible but can't see a difference).

To be exact will this fit my RS?

TopBox swap S-l1600


Many Thanks

Dave

Have you the plate to go with it? The racks are all the same.

Cheers for the advice guys.

So I have bought a new top box (different one to picture) and it has the plate with it, I have reinstalled the original rack that came with the bike (I had a Givi rack and box attached), So my plan is to ride up (100 miles) and fit the box there and ride home, just want to make sure I'm not going all the way up there to find I need something else to fit it.

I'm assuming that the plate fits under the rack and connects to the box through it. Or am I making this simpler than it is?

Cheers All

Dave

If you have the attachment pin with its ring and washers, you should be good to go.

If you have the case, plate and rack then you can fit the box to the rack off-bike to pre-test the fit.
