    Hi guys

    Is it possible to fit a 2017 GS can on a 2017 RS? Want to fit a Scorpion can to my RS but they only make for the GS. I'm guessing the net results must be the same ie fuelling change, sound etc. So is it just a case of mounting points and the link pipes? Any advice appreciated. Cheers

    I would be willing to bet large sums of money they will fit no problem at all. The similarities between models are so numerous and just because it isn't listed for the RS doesn't mean a damn thing.
    Just make sure it's for the same engine/swingarm and you are set.

    The end can may slip onto the pipe, and the join may be the same with the flapper valve too. What will change is the angle and the anchor point for the can to bolt to. Maybe you could lash up an extension to cover the different location, but don't forget the GS wheel is a bit more narrow than the RS. You may also not be able to fit the panniers.

    If you can obtain the correct connecting pipe (different between the GS and the R/RS), the can ought to fit.

    i remember back when there were no aftermarket cans available someone posted how they fitted an aftermarket can listed for a gs, it was just a matter of rotating the link pipe slightly and it went on without any major engineering I believe

    Passenger pegs also fall into the area.
