    luggage rack option addon question (2012 R1200R)

    Hi gents... I'm wanting to get the BMW OEM luggage rack and priced the part at $319, but I'm not sure if it's going to work with my current configuration since I've literally gotten 3 answers from 3 different dealers.. so I figured I'd tap into the wisdom of the MOA group..

    this is my current setup, on my 2012 bike... I believe it's "Ready" for the rack like it is, but some are saying I'd have to replace the entire plastic trim back by the lite... yes/no?

    thanks for the info..

    ok, so from what I can see, all that would mount atop what I currently have... I'm just trying to be sure I don't have to do any kind of replacement of that aft molding that I currently have.

    thanks for the pics

    I just went back out and looked under the rack, and it is the same molding you have, just minus the stock passenger grab rails. You can see the "U" shape indentation where they removed the original rails. You should be good to go.

    You will have to buy a small plastic piece that goes under the rack. According to Max's fiche it's:

    46 63 7 723 861 REAR TRIM PANEL, CENTER, GRAIN PATTERN - BLACK 0.26 1 $37.86

    I put this rack on my 2011 r1200R and that trim panel was not included in the rack kit.
