    Yes, I have fitted the 52l top box from the R1200RT onto my F800GT rack. It looked like it would just drop on but it does not! It needs a bit of dremeling of the rack to make it work. But the end...

    True, but with a bit of "dremeling" the large 49 litre topbox off the K1600 or R1200/1250RT can be fitted. I know because I have done it!

    Fitting an LED rear light to a F800GT is NOT a simple matter. If you go the BMW OEM route it requires a small wiring loom as well as the actual LED light cluster.

    Well it is a big "sail" without them and I reckon Madstad would save the cost of providing them if they could. Anyway they make a great place to mount a satnav!!

    Agreed, the Boxer's "vibs" are not the same as the FGT's and I have grip puppies on both my current R1200RT and F800GT (partly because I like fatter grips). I learnt early on not take my FGT on long...

    I think the issue BMW are concerned about will be keeping the front brake fluid reservoir level (there is not clutch reservoir), I suspect that if you do this all will be well.
