Pillion Seat holes

On my R1100S, with the seat cowl on, just behind the seat & below the cowl there are two screw holes on either side - i assume they are for mounting saddle bags etc. - but as i bought the bike second hand i do not know if they should be a cover ?

should there be ? - or does anyone know of a way to cover the holes ?

They were for bungee hooks.

that is where saddle bag mounts are attach (one of athree mounting points) i think there were little hooks if bags were not mounted.

I assume you take the hooks off to fit saddle bags ? - if so does anyone have any hooks ?

The two holes are a mounting point for the hard case mounting rails. The plastic piece that is held on by the screws is removed (as I recall) and one end of each rail mounts in their place. Hard cases then fit onto the rails. Now, the rails are also a very good bungee hooking place if you do not use the hard cases. Great for a small day bag, etc.

If you do not have the luggage mounting hardware on the bike, there are two cover plates available from BMW that tidy up that spot nicely. I don't have the part numbers, but here is a part diagram that shows the left side plate, #6. You will also need the shorter screws #8 and washers #13. The wire bungee clip #7 is worthless and you will probably not want that part.

FWIW, I have used the "worthless wire bungee clips (#7)" as the tiedown points for my drybag as long as I've had the bike. They work fine. Use narrow/thin tie-down straps available at camping stores. Thick tie-down straps won't work.

best,

Dave

#3 is the cowl tabs that slip into the cowl slots...they retain the rear part of the cowl.

The real answer is a closely held secret. They mount a special spoiler that sits about 4 feet above the saddle and provides substantial down force during straight line, high speed riding. Unforetunately, during cornering, the down force is so great that it overcomes available traction -- with predictable results.

In this country, the spoiler is illegal due to Ralph Nader, et al. Nonetheless, a black market does exist. Sorry, I can not provide details.

Bought my S used, which came with the hard case mounting rails, but not the cases. Since I didn't plan on buying/using hard cases, I decided to remove the mounting rails, but didn't have anything to tidy up the screw holes below the cowl. BMW dealer/parts guy had a bunch of leftover parts (6,7,8,13). They take these off when they mount the rails for customers with hard cases. Gave them to me for nothing.

Cleans up the back and provides a hook for bungee.

What up with that big hoop thing (it's between the lines running from 9&10)? It's attached to either the luggage deal or the backs of the pillion pegs.

Looks like that could hold a pretty serious bungie cord.

I believe that's a wire muffler guard.
