The design is an evolution of an original design which has been improved by input from the lads on the www.ukgser.com forum.
This is very similar to the rack I designed for my 2006 GS as it also provides a large flat area when used in conjunction with the BMW panniers.
It`s very easy to fit with no drilling required and comes with replacement fasteners and spacers which hold the plate just about the plastic pillion plate though you don`t have to use these and you can fasten it down without using them. It locates on the 4 pannier rail fastening points.
I`ve used laser etching to enhance the appearance of the plate and it certainly changes the look for the bike.
Easily fitted in place of pillion seat with the supplied bolts and spacers. (Keep your original bolts in a safe place incase you sell..) Fitted to my 2017 GS LC Rallye. Now I just attach / strap my chosen item / bag using the slots in the Cymarc plate. Also useful for blood bikes!! Saves wishing you’d put your panniers on before you came out!. Another great idea from the lads at Cymarc!
