I think BMW used that lens for decades. Would a Rockster headlamp unit bolt right in?

Givi monolock E370 and E450 comparison by pic

Bought an '11 DL650 (with a grand worth of farkles) for trade in price plus a hunnerd from a guy yesterday . It has a Givi monolock E450. So here's a Givi E370 and E450 photo comparison on a R12R for you to see if a 450 will make your bike look fat from the rear. They swapped from Givi mounts back and forth without a fuss.
Both of these operate/latch the same. You do need the key to unlock it for the latch to work. I was hoping to be able to open it without a key but the key will only come out when it is locked. Safety first I guess.

To me, the smaller one makes the bike look more top heavy, where the wider one seems lower. From the side by side pic they appear the same height. You can put more STUFF in larger one, too.

Hi everyone...my name is Don. I have just traded out an '06 883 with 3700 miles for a '00 R1100R with 94K. Dealer felt bad and gave me some money back too! Here she is. [ATTACH]

The other bike is a TW200 with 800 miles.

Has a Russell Day Long seat and a slightly jacked Cee Bailey screen. Seems to run good. Found something that seems weird. Under the black plastic under the tank there appears to be a fuel filter. Is this normal, as I thought there was one in the tank. Only reason I ask it was a slight leak in the seam that is noticeable only when there is pressure in the fuel system.

This is a Rob Lentini external fuel filter mod. I did it to my R1100RS way back when, a good mod.

Is there a specific filter that is needed or just get one that fits?

And thanks.

One reason the filter was moved inside the tank was to eliminate vapor lock, which you've reintroduced to the equation. In hot weather, carry a bottle of water to cool the filter housing.

Haven't been concerned with vapor lock since carb days. Could the external filter still be prone to it when fed by a high pressure fuel pump? Just wondering...

I'm pretty sure that no one has had a problem with that.

That would look killer with the split 5s off the 1150.

Either box looks good. Found the smaller of the two on Ebay and a mounting rack from another vendor on Ebay. Just waiting for delivery.
Hope wifey likes her new back rest.
