    Topcase Rack

    Available in: Black or Chrome

    For the top case that's standard on the K1600 GTL and optional on the K1600 GT, we have developed a top case rack that is both good looking and practical. The rack offers another way to attach some extra gear or a good spot for those things that you really don't want inside the top case, like for example a wet rain suit. In designing the rack, we followed the shape of the top case and backrest, creating an optimal shape for full utilization of available space. Available chrome plated or powder coated black.


    • • Four sealed, strong attachment points 
    • Precision shaped steel tubing
    • Top quality surface finish
    • Optical highlight, compliments top case
    • Available in chrome or black
    • Supplied complete with all needed hardware and instructions
    • Made in Germany

    Please note: Installation requires drilling 4 holes in the lid of the top case.

    Please Note: Exceptions to model/year fitment

    Not too shabby!

    Installation was a bit of a pain. Trying to position the rack was TRICKY AND STRESSFUL. It would have been nice if it came with a template. I tried to use the 4 posts to measure out where the rack needs to go, but the 4 posts weren't exactly parallel to each other which threw off measurements and making it borderline useless. I ended up trusting my shotty eyes that the rack was truly centered and where it needed to be before I started marking and drilling. Otherwise, the rack looks amazing (I got the chrome version.) on my black 2023 GTL and seems well built except the fact that the 4 posts aren't parallel to each other. In fact, one back post was angled forward a good 8th of an inch or so compared to the other back post. But, once fully installed, that doesn't seem to stick out like a sore thumb thankfully.
    K1600B GA Top Case Rack

    The rack was delivered promptly and in excellent condition as it was very well packed. As with any Wunderlich product it is very well made, the black paint, I'm guessing powder coat, is very good. All required hardware was provided and identified in the installation instructions. There were four flat plastic washers included that were not identified in the exploded assembly drawing and no mention was made of their purpose. The label on the plastic bag that contained the rack and bag of parts indicated that this item is for a GT/GTL. The included paper installation instructions are not very detailed; I also watched the installation video which provided a little more info. The installer instructs to line up the rack so that it is in the sweet spot. Since the GT/GTL top case is somewhat different than the Grand America it is more difficult to find the sweet spot. There is no reference made to the contours of the plastic liner inside the top case cover which can have consequences when locating the rack, drilling the holes and installing the fasteners. I felt the installation was a bit of kluge since the rack is really made for the GT/GTL case which is much flatter on top than the Grand America. Does is work? Yes, but for the price of the rack I feel it should be made to fit the GA top case.

    So, I ordered this luggage rack for the top-case and it fits great, looks great, and will serve its purpose well. The weakest part of the whole setup, will be the top ass itself. I only have two issues with the rack. The first is that there is no stencil, and the instructions do not provide guidance on best placement location. The second, is that apparently BMW has plans for a factory too-case luggage rack, as there are four hole guides on the inside of the top case lid. I really think this should have lined up perfectly with those, guide marks so that the rack could be a drop-in replacement and so that should the BMW rack come out and users prefer it, a new top case lid would be required to make the switch. Otherwise, I look forward to mounting my luggage to the rack and seeing how well it performs for me.
    Fits well, easy install but picky to locate.

    This is the second GTL that I've mounted one of these racks to and I like this one just as much. I chose the black both times for personal preference, I just don't think chrome should be dripping from a bike like this. Wunderlich loses a star because their instructions are very poorly translated (for some items, not at all). Also because a paper template for the hole alignment would have made locating the rack oh-so-much easier. Of course that would also require that the mounts be located and welded in precise locations. This does not seem to be the case but it still looks great.

    I bought this rack received it, I had tomake some adjustments and run to the local hardware store. I used the rubber grommet washers under the top case attachment points. I used nylon washers with rubber back under the case points. Total install time was about 1 hour, hardware store trip included. I attached the beautiful bag to the rack. I have yet to ride, but it looks very nice and glad the install is done. My only complaint is the bag is not waterproof or it does not come with a rain cover...why is that?? Oh its abit pricey, but if it works I'll be okay with it.
    Watch out for insufficient threads

    So the packaging states, the rack was made in Europe ... Well, it wasn't the Germans who made it because they know how to make good quality product. First, the paint job was so so, as parts of the rack had a very thin layer, others had a drop of paint hanging from the bottom. One of the mounting posts did not have enough thread, so one screw was lost in the process, and who knew that taping a piece of European engineering could be so much fun ?!? In the end, it arrived in time for another long haul trip, has been mounted, looks nice, matches original BMW colors close enough, so no long-term hard feelings.
