    2016, though I think that's the same police rack/radio box mount for many years.

    How do you guys get the Police version? Can you just order one from HD that way, or at least order a part such as the rear rack?

    You can buy new/unregistered Police bikes that are converted to civilian specs after they've been at the dealer for x amount of time (and usually for a good bit less than a civilian model, like $5k less or so). It might not be until the next year's models are introduced or something like that.

    And yes, I suspect you could just buy the radio box rack if you already had a civilian model, but no idea on pricing or if you might need something else too.

    I have your 34 liter top case and rack on my 2012 BMW G650GS. I
    It has the four quick turn fasteners. What would I need to do to upgrade to the newer style with your regular single quick disconnect.
    Thanks.
    Tom.

    Hi Tom,

    It would be difficult with the older version of the 34L case. You would be shaving the ribs off the bottom of the case in several areas. Also, the plate you have does not have the two forward flange bushings in the right place. and on this particular bike I don't think you have room on the plate to move them forward.
