R1250GS(A) - 
Pillion Seat Clip On/Off Utility Box (standard depth, hollow box)     -Normally £150.00

One of our very popular products, now includes the R1250GS (and the Rallye)

This is something I have been mulling over for literally years (since the latest R1200 LC model was launched in fact). I`ve always considered the placement of a box on the pillion seat plate as a good idea as most of us simply do not carry passengers (most of the time) and the space is therefore wasted. However, a box that could clip on and off easily would still provide the option of putting the seat back on quickly if needed.

Getting it to interface well with the BMW pillion seat holding mechanism has always been a difficulty with previous attempts not being as good as I would like. Simply bolting the box in place might have sufficed but this does not allow for the easy clip on/off facility!

So, I decided to get stuck in over one Xmas (you can only eat so much turkey) and at last and after many prototypes I have finally come up with a solution that is, possibly, one of the best there is currently available. What I did was take one of the best on the market (An American design - which btw I thought was really good!) and then get  involved with the lads on the UKGSER forum - I`m also a member of this damn fine forum. What they (kindly) did was make a great deal of suggestions on how to improve the original design which allowed me to evolve the product.

In this case getting significant numbers of bikers (like me) involved directly with R&D of a new product has produced positive results allowing me to produce a product as good as it could be as quickly as possible.

It has been designed to make maximum use of the space available but without being `too big`. Panniers and top box can still be fitted if need be.

The result is a utility box that has balanced price with high quality that offers the following features;
  • Interfaces with the BMW OEM locking mechanism for same key fitting and removal (clip on/off).
  • High quality lock for security.
  • 2mm aluminium construction - light but very strong (most other boxes/panniers are made from thinner material).
  • High quality machined locating spigot.
  • Powder coated.
  • Tig welded corners, CNC pressbrake formed sides.
  • Made in the UK by craftsmen.

I`ve got one of the last prototypes fitted to my GS and it clips on and off beautifully in seconds. Each box has two small drain holes just in case any water does get in (though there is a seal around the lid) and these holes can also be used for wires if you want to put any radio gear in the box for example.

It can be utilised for a number of uses, (hence the utility description) one use would be to mount a bike intercom system in it, for example. Or just as an option to using panniers if you are going for a short ride out somewhere.

All the parts, hinges etc, are individually bolted on to allow for replacement if necessary using stainless steel fasteners. 

To see how easy and quickly it clips on and off please search YouTube for `Fitting Cymarc Utility Box to R1200GSA LC Using BMW OEM lock` to watch the video. (it fits the same on the old bike aswell)

R1250GS(A) - Number Plate Carrier Box     -Normally £109.13

This was a product which I had been mulling over for literally years. What was on the market for the R1200 was either made from plastic or simply too big. Using an alternative design method and making it for the 1250 (and 1200) we believe we`ve come up with something exclusive compared to other number plate boxes currently on the market.
So, I set about designing something not too big as to overstress the carrying bracket itself (The bracket is only designed to carry a number plate!) yet big enough to be useful.

What I came up with was the best compromise in size and usefulness. The next problem was material, I had decided on 1.5mm aluminium for lightness however the problem then was during TIG welding we noticed that, as expected, the box was warping with the heat. This problem was made worse by the unavoidable gaps being left after CNC pressbrake folding, requiring filling with weld. It was also very labour intensive to manufacture.

At this point both Aaron and Mick got heavily involved with the development and with all our heads together we came up with the idea of using laser profiled bending `slits` to not only give us precise bends but also to provide a sealing edge where the two edges of the slit came together. Strength was provided by bending tabs and the minimum of welding thereby avoiding heat distortion, whilst retaining strength.

Following a heavy powder coat in satin black we`ve produced an item that is not only strong, visually square and precise but also weatherproof. It`s also quicker to manufacture and ensures much higher quality control than other conventional methods.

It fits onto the number plate carrier using high quality stainless steel fasteners (supplied) and the number plate then simply fits onto the outer cover using the standard plastic fasteners. Please note it is for light loading only.

Top Tip!: Although every care has been taken to keep water out of this box, if you end up in a lake we can't promise your favourite book will stay bone dry (this also applies to heavy rain). If you were thinking of using this box to carry paper documents/ books and are worrying about water damage, trying putting them in a waterproof bag, and then in our box. works for us!
