R1250GS Rotopax Pillion Plate Adaptor Assembly
This product is the culmination of meeting a customer's request for his R1200GSA LC and adapting it to fit the new R1250GS.
We were approached by an Australian customer who asked us to design something which would be able to carry the Rotopax fuel system. He had already looked at options but came to us for a more `bespoke` solution.
We got stuck in with his R1200GSA LC and came up with a modified rear pillion seat plate which can mount the Rotopax fixing bracket at a height that meant it didn`t foul on the adjacent hand rails. It also allows the fitment of both sizes of the fuel Rotopax cells. Job done!
Whilst we were at it we then decided to adapt it to fit the latest R1250GS. The problem with this is that due to the grab rails you cannot place the Rotopax `flat` on the pillion seat plate - if you place it higher it just looks `silly`.
To solve this we designed an adaptor bracket that angles the Rotopax perfectly, allowing the fitment of the larger container if needed. The system also allows the Vario topcase to be fitted too.
It`s made from high quality stainless and powder coated with one part left hand polished for contrast - it`s a thing of beauty, does a functional job and as usual is totally over engineered.
It`s made from separate pieces which all bolt together so damaged parts can be easily replaced without replacing the whole product. It is shipped fully assembled. Fitting is easy and uses the original key to unlock the assembly. You may wish to take a look at the fitting video if you are struggling.
This product DOES NOT come with the Rotopax system itself.
