Adaptor plate to allow a twin cam vario topbox & mounting plate to suit an S1000XR
I have been asked to make an adaptor plate so that a twin cam GS Vario topbox OE mounting plate can be made to fit the S1000XR.
This is my solution - made from 2mm thick stainless steel laser profiled plate and secured to the OEM rack by Qty 4 M6 stainless steel fasteners. The Plastic BMW Vario mounting plate is then secured to the adaptor plate by a further 6 M6 stainless steel fasteners resulting in a very secure fitting. The plate sits 10mm above the XR rack using 4 nylon spacers so that it doesn't`t rub on the OEM rack.
I`ve designed it around the previous twin cam model range (2004-2012) Vario top box as those boxes and plastic OEM frames are comparatively much more common (and cheaper) than the current GSLC model topboxes and plastic OEM frames. The boxes and frames can be picked up on ebay quite cheaply nowadays.
All fasteners and spacers are supplied and its really easy to fit. The adaptor kit DOES NOT include the BMW Plastic top box mounting plate.
Please note this has not been confirmed to fit with the 2020 model bike. Please contact us to arrange a sale or return if you are still interested,
