Slightly modified, and works great.
I modified my GS Emotion Aluminum Compartment so I could use it with Happy Trails racks and bags. It was simple to do by making a 1" bracket to bolt the top mount to.
I carry a LOT of tools in the backcountry, and they're heavy. Having all that weight on one side of my old bike made it tough to balance the load. This box brings that weight close to the bike's center (2015 R1200GSA) and leaves the bags available to carry a lot of other stuff.

This is an awesome accessory, i have a R1200 LC (not the adventure) with the Touratech Zega Pro Rack. You can install this box in your regular GS LC but you need to buy the part 2799121 and also need to made a little trick on the rear support of the box. You have to bend up a little bit the rear support and replace the piece # above. it works awesome.
Small but Useful!
I wanted to be able to always have a tire repair kit and pump on my '015 GSA without having to ride with the panniers or a top box. This does the trick. It looks OEM (in fact, I have already had a GSA rider come over and ask me when BMW added a compartment inside the pannier racks....). It is simple to attach using the torx driver and wrench under the bike's seat. No other tools are necessary. The waterproofing seal on the door to the compartment requires a little effort to take on and off due to the weather seal - so I wouldn't want to be opening it a dozen times a day. That being said, it does what it is designed to do. It is so convenient that I wish it were larger to accommodate more "stuff". It will take a BestRest CyclePump air compressor and their (large) EZ air gauge, plus a Progressive tire repair kit and a couple of small tools, but that's about it. Of course, a smaller compressor/gauge would give me more space (which I might eventually get so I can put more tools into the compartment). Overall, I'm very glad I got it.
Great design and manufacture
Easy to install, my only complaint is that the instructions need a little bit more explanation
Is not waterproof / No es contra agua
Not completely sealed with rain water fills !!!
that bad to see such poor quality on this product
my tools and all that remains now is inside wet and with a strong musty smell /

Bought this for my tools. Mounts easy and well made. Just watch video so you can see where it mounts. Keeps tools in own place and dry, have ridden in rain and checked afterwards. I always need more space and like to keep things separate.
GS Emotion Aluminum Storage Compartment
Es una excelente caja de herramientas, fácil de instalar y estéticamente se integra al diseño de la moto.
Wonderful Add for R1200GS ADV
This is a great accessory - nice construction - easy install - reliable operation. This is first class and I am very happy I made the purchase. Best accessory I have added to the bike.
Easiest install I ever purchased. Water tight too!
Fit well without any problem on my 2014 f1200 GS Adventure, which is not the case for other parts that I bought from some other site.
I did not have the occasion to test the water resistance of it yet.
Super box, able to hold most my important tools for any trip, and keep them dry.
Great solution for replacing crash bar bags
Previously, I had TT crash bar bags on my '09 R1200 GSA but the crash bar configuration on the 2014 GSAW didn't allow them to be mounted. I use this compartment to carry a small air compressor, tire patch kit and other items that are useful in an emergency. Mounting the compartment was very easy with brackets that fit the OEM pannier cases perfectly.
This is a great addition to the OEM Adventure pannier racks. I have a tool roll, a tire repair kit and some small other items in their. Works great so that I always have this with me even when I ride without panniers.
For me it gets the weight of the tools out of the top case. Unfortunately, the space BMW provides under the passender seat is a really bad joke. Way to small to be useful. This solves my problem of tool storage that should be out of the way of the other luggage, low and more forward than a top case, and always on the bike.
The box is made for the 2014 R1200 GSA that comes with the BMW panniers cases & Frames. If you have that luggage & frames it will install in 5 minutes.
I own a 2014 GSW with Pannier luggage from touratech. Not the BMW luggage frame.
So technically this box does not fit on my frame. But I was able take off back rear bracket & use clamps to retro fit onto my bike.
I am very happy with the quality of the part. I was able to put 1st aid kit,tire repair kit, jumper cables & tow strap in this box with some room to spare !!
