BMW Pillon Mount System


The BMW Pillion Mount (BMW-PM) System is designed for single rider applications. It allows you to keep your existing top box while achieving an 11.5 gallon total capacity

The core of the design is the pillion mount hardware. It can be deployed on the following BMW models: K1600GT (not GTL) and R1200RT. This unit may fit other models but has not been verified. Check with us to determine fitment.

Using this mounting as a basis, you can opt for just a luggage platform or, as is shown above, an auxiliary fuel tank.

The only variation on the models is the tank capacity as follows:

  • R1200RT 2005 to 2009 - stock tank capacity 7.13 gallons, auxiliary tank capacity 4.27 gallons
  • R1200RT 2010 and up - stock tank capacity 6.6 gallons, auxiliary tank capacity 4.84 gallons
  • K1600GT 2012 and up - stock tank capacity 7.0 gallons, auxiliary tank capacity 4.47 gallons

NOTE: Auxiliary tank capacities are nominal. We assure they are plus 0.0 (zero) gallons from the specification but may vary minus by 0.2 gallon.
