R1200GS & GSA Luggage Rack/Tank System

image001

We've just added a BMW Luggage Rack/Tank System (LRT) for the new 2014 BMW R1200 GS Adventure. As with our other BMW tank systems this is a modular design that allows you to mix and match to build the exact system you want. 

The core of the design is the universal mounting plate. It is mounted to existing holes and requires no modification to the motorcycle.The GSW LRT was designed using a 2013 R1200GS water cooled so it may fit other models. You can check with us to verify your mounting pattern.

Using this mounting plate as a basis, you can opt for just the luggage deck or, as is shown here an auxiliary fuel tank and the luggage deck.

The tank capacity can be customized to your specifications.

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.
