Thanks, Looked at a picture/instructions of the E193 and it has parts and pieces that fit into the OE BMW top case rack spaces to center and secure it, then the Givi case slips into the E193 top plate.

I think the BMW top case rack/mount plate fits a bunch of BMWs, yes even the scooter mount looked the same at the dealer. The BMW case latches on/under the black plastic piece that fits under the BMW shiny metal top. We'll find out .
I don't want to spend another $93.00 if I don't have to on another "so you got a BMW eh??" part to make something fit.

Thanks for the replies. I will wait to see if the plate mounts well for you before making a purchase.

Wonder how it sounds ... Can't you-tube at work.

Price might make me rethink getting that fat stocker off my bike.
Thanks Hoop

I have the E193 on mine. I use the E52 Givi case on it and have not had problems, but I've not taken it cross country either. I throw my backpack in there, which contains my laptop.

I did use blue loctite on the bolts under the E193 because they came loose once.

That does look like an awful good deal. How many years does one of those things last? They (LeoVince) has several other products at different price points, and most other silencers for the R1200R are in the $700-800 range. I wonder where this one skimped?

I've had LV pipes on a few bikes, they're always best bang for the buck.
Every bit as good as most manufacturers out there.

I put a Remus slip on on my 2011 and no tuning needed. Ran like a top!

Typically the exhaust change does not move the operating parameters out of the normal range. This is why there is no significant improvement in performance with the change of exhaust on the R-series.

I put a luftmeister pipe on my old R1150rs and rode it around the hood. No performance difference but it was loud. Took it right back off and reinstalled the stock pipe. That noise gives me a headache after just a few miles.

True dat, but with a caveat.
Changing the muffler only does next to nil. Changing the headers to eleiminate the cat converter opens the system up to help it 'breath', causing less back pressure, and in turn, allowing the boxer motor to rev and de-rev easier.
The result is less restriction and a smoother running motorall around.
Money better spent on a set of headers than a slip-on can.
