    Hi folks,
    today I created an adapter for the sport panniers from K12/K13 to our RS.

    Testride was perfect. No problems at all.
    I choose the L-shaped alumina for more stability.

    Where were you a year ago :)
    I like the RS bags for trips but it would have been nice to keep at least 1 set of our K1300S bags for day rides.

    Lupo, cheers.
    Does this lift the pannier up slightly ?
    Reason I ask is that I have an Akra and there were some photos elsewhere on this site which showed the sports pannier touching the Akra -member in Singapore IIRC.

    Nice job...Lupo;);).....Looks good. i'm planning to do the same on my RS, the stock cases looks too big and out of proportion.

    Yes, could you take a photo from the rear, as I'd love to see how much better it looks than my F800ST panniers (which have the exhaust cut-out on the wrong side)?

    The panniers line follows the exhaust's.

    Lupo - thank you buddy.
    Now that is interesting. With the cut out on the same side as the can (unlike the F800 panniers) I think these will accommodate the Akra.

    Lupo do you have some type of rubber protector over your LED turn signals?

    Hi Lee,
    This is the indicator protection from Wunderlich. Its from metal. I need them because sometimes when I put the RS backwards in the garden hut I crashed my indicator. With this the problem is gone. :D

    Hi Dirk, No but I must admit I haven't really been trying...need to pull myself towards myself and get on to it again..
