    R1150RT Top Case wanted

    Greetings & we'll all be riding soon -

    I've got a 2002 R1150RT (great ride, has side cases) & am looking for its BMW top case. I don't know the compatability between, say, 1100, 1150GS, or other BMW top cases - mine has the original 1150RT rack & I don't see the need to switch if I find a case that fits. I know there are 33L & 49L BMW cases - any others out there?
    I like the look of the BMW top cases, though I realize the Givi & others may have larger capacities, more lighting, etc.
    I ride w/o a passenger on trips so a case that accepts one helmet would suffice. I haven't had a lot of luck on eBay, MOA Flea Market, IBMWR, etc. so far.

    Anybody wanting to let go of a case? Other thoughts?

    Thanks a lot
    Jake

    Just a reminder that "want to buy" or "want to sell" ads are not allowed in the main forum area. Perhaps someone can help with a location of where a top case can be located?.....Seen one at the club swap-meet? Send the guy a PM.

    Sorry Omega Man - You're right - I should be elsewhere - But before I move, does anyone know compatability issues with 1100, 1150GS racks for top cases?
    Thanks

    It took a couple months last year but I found one in the flea market here. I went for the stock BMW case which meant I removed a giving bracket in favor of the stock setup.

    You can get a rekey kit to get the lock to match yours

    In checking the Max BMW fiche, I see that the top boxes for the 100 and 1150 RT are the same part number and so is the latch repair kit.
    Sure seems as though they are interchangeable.

    You're in a good spot with your post as you will learn there is no 49 l case from BMW for Oilhead RTs.

    You can also learn that realoem.com is a good place to check interchangeability of OE top cases among Oilhead versions. And that I think cases for RTs are RT and RS only and there's only one version and it's 33 l.

    Others may provide corrections, but it's still not a "wanted" post until you know what you want.
