    I think you'll find, UIVMM that the design is fundamentally different. The RS panniers are not built as 2 halves. Rather the bike mounted side extends into the lid side so that when you open the lid it forms a shelf and prevents all the stuff ending up on the floor ( long time complaint of previous BMW panniers). Therefore, the bike mounted side is wider (i.e. almost the total width of the pannier) and so a slimmer lid is impossible. ( Hmm , when i read that back it makes sense, i though that would end up as a garbled mess, of course no-one else might understand it).

    I envision that a slim lid kit would come with some solution for the deck too. I haven’t looked to see if the deck (which I really appreciate) can be removed by screws though.

    Suffice it to say, slimmer boxes would make me very happy.
