When I picked up my 2011 R1200RT, I noticed that inside the "glove box" cover, there was a spring clip. It looked intended to hold a small flashlight.

I checked the BMW accessories, and the parts fiche for all the R-series. No luck. The K1600 has the same clip and that parts fiche showed a flashlight, but no specs...

So I went looking and found the the perfect flashlight for my http://j.mp/FenixF20 It fits the clip in the glove box perfectly. It's the Fenix LD20 LED flashlight with all the cool features:

  • Runs on two normal AA batteries

  • General mode has steady 9 lumens (71hrs), 50 lumens (13hrs), 105 lumens (5 hours) and SOS

  • Turbo mode has 205 lumens steady and strobe

  • Solid aluminum

  • IPX-8 waterproof
