I bought and installed the Hepco& Becker rack
Easy, quick and affordable.
(At that time BMW was not having the rack - like the center stand ;-))
Installed it myself yesterday; remove the rear handles by removing the two torx bolts per side, remove the plastic cap behind the seat, remove the two bolts under the cap. Now install rack with these six bolts. Easiest job ever, takes 10-15 minutes max. :grin2:Any person install a Bmw oem rack ?
Any advice ?
Can confirm, I do this often to sidle the bike into a tight spot. The Rear rack and handles are appropriately sturdy.You should also be able to pick up the back of the bike by the handles.
Remind me not to ride pillion with you if you intend for me to sit on the rack vs. on the seat. >The back rack has handles incorporated into it so it should be able to at least take the weight of a person.
