BMW R1100GS

Recommended Posts

Hello XLADV'ers anyone have an adventure seat hooked up on their 1100 or 1150 GS? My 96' 1100 came with the adventure seat and needs a new latch. I m not sure what part or parts it needs. Any pictures would be great! I'll post up pictures of my configuration. The oem tail luggage section was replaced with the 1150 GS tail rack to accommodate the adventure seat. Not sure how the things "locks into place? Thanks!

@beener_bunny here is the current set up. Just sits in place for now. Wondering if it had a locking mechanism?

hi. ok, here goes. yes, there is a locking mechanism.

you will find all the seat + mounting parts detailed at the following link (basis is a 2002 R 1150 GSA):

http://www.realoem.com/bmw/enUS/showparts?id=0441-EUR-04-2002-R21A-BMW-R_1150_GS_Adv_01_0441,0492_&diagId=52_2979

can't see too well, but it looks like your bike is missing the cable (part 8 on the diagram) from the main lock to the locking mechanism.

hope this helps! if you need anything else, let me know.

PHOTO 1 - it all starts right here (right side of the bike), with this lock, which you unlock with the motorcycle key directly. you will notice the cable to the left side of it.

PHOTO 2 - this is the locking mechanism, in "locked" position. and the cable on the left, coming up from the lock on PHOTO 1. in the hole on the left, you will see the metal part that locks the seat - which will not show in the next photo, when the mechanism is in unlock position.

PHOTO 3 - this is the locking mechanism, in "unlocked" position. i am turning the key here to the position i would turn it to remove the seat.

PHOTO 4 - this is what my seat looks like underneath (rear of the seat is at the bottom of the photo - forgot to rotate it, sorry).

@beemer_bunny ah I see now! The helmet lock/ seat locking mechanism was broken so I removed it and tosses it. I used the helmet lock one time and the lock malfunctioned so I had to tear it apart to get the helmet off. Now I see what parts I need to get and fix now. Thanks!

All this research has been great! I'm actively seeking the oem rear tail section so I use the rear seat for two up rides. However it turn out a fellow rider is planning to convert his GS with an adventure seat and is looking to do a swap. I found a used wunderlich single seat so I now need the components to install. This thread has been super helpful in my search to improve rider comfort for myself. I'll post up about the conversion once I receive more parts??.
