R 1200 RT - Arm Rests for Pillion


Recommended Posts

Hello, new member here.


I did try the search tool.


I have a '16 r1200rt with a 48 liter trunk. My pillion wants arm rests after seeing a K1600.


Please share your knowledge, experience, solutions, and aftermarket ideas. I don't want to have to reinvent the wheel.

There is/was a company, made the Strongrak.

online at strongbilt.com


link from MOA Marketplace.

But, not with the 48L, separate set


Good luck.

If you have this top box, you should be able to retrofit the BMW rests from the Exclusive. The box and rack are the same on both bikes I believe.




Welcome, you live in a great location! :thumbsup:

Tim, there may very well be a big gotcha with my theory. But, knowing that I swapped the same top case between the K16 & R12/LC I figure it should work. Probably an expensive prop though! :read:

Thank you all for the welcome and the links/ideas.


I have considered fabricating aluminium rests and attaching them to the 48 liter box, recognizing that they could detach in a crash.


Alternately I have thought about making a cradle or frame that attaches to the lower insides of the box, requiring minimal space but adding significant strength.




Thanks again,
