R1200GS(A) Twin Cam Pillion Seat Clip On/Off Utility Box
Check out this customer's review!
Following the success of the R1200GS(A) clip on/clip off utility box it wasn`t long before a fellow biker asked for the same item to fit the previous GS model, being the twin cam engine or `hexhead` model as it is sometimes known.
So, The Team got behind the challenge and just after two attempts got a design that works with the Twin Cam! I helped with the redesign, Mick skilfully Tig welded and hand finished it and Aaron puts them together to achieve a perfectly working and assembled product!
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.
It can be utilised for a number of uses (hence the utility description) and the image shows just one idea of how it can be used. 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. Although this video clip is for the later LC model the utility box for the Twin Cam (or hexhead) model fits the same.

This variant is very handy if the box is used to hold radio or charging equipment. The hole in the bottom allows the routing of cable and the baffles allow equipment to be kept separated. The baffles are removable to allow cables to be routed through the central cut-out.
Brilliant as gifts, we will take most designs you give us and program our laser to precision laser etch them onto a 1mm Stainless Steel plate which we will then bolt onto the lid.
