Question OEM GS Luggage Rack on G310R

Does anyone know if the G310GS luggage rack could replace the nice little handles on the G310R?

I could never understand why the rack was standard on the GS and just grab handles on the R, as the rack incorporates the grab handles !! if GS is fitted to R the handles are hung up in the garage.

Maybe one of the things that make the R cheaper

The luggage rack makes the R look much better in the rear with that fender that sticks out. I agree it should be standard on the R as well, but it is not. The part new is like $270, so that and the other items on the GS is what makes it so much more. I found a take off GS rack for about $220 shipped, so jumped on it. I like the way it looks, but if you have the Hepco & Becker bags, you need to use the GS C-Bow brackets, two different ones between the R and GS. I already had them, so I just used a 1" square spacer I made. This also clears the longer USA turn signals to the side bags.

I'm going to mount the GS rack onto my R tomorrow. Shop, where I bought the rack, offered me connecting material which I refused. Hoping it is not needed as it is the same on the R handlebar as seen on the animation below.
