R1200C bags on R18


Active member
On fb someone posted below, waiting on translation. Though if adapted for use on a R18 would bet the the bottom of the bags might not clear the top of the FE stock balloon exhaust pipe.

It is a custom rear rack though they used above and modified it a bit to fit. Might be this part on the bmw site.

R 1200 C bags fit fine on R 18. I installed mine using chinese mounting hardware (aliexpress).

thank you, will keep my eye out for a set of used R1200C bags now.
Did you have to modify them or the bag mounting hardware so the bags would fit?

I'm afraid the frames from this link won't match
for these bags, the upper and lower tubes are not parallel. they are in the chinese link
