    Hey guys.

    Has anyone installed the Zega pro accessory plate on BMW OEM panniers for the F800GSA?

    I am looking attach an MSR equivalent stove fuel bottle on the rear of the non-exhaust side pannier. I am worried it may interfere with the latch mechanism.

    I use my panniers for commuting as well, so I like being able to throw a bottle attachment on there for camping trips.

    Don’t see why not.
    I bought my F800GS panniers used from an inmate with 3 of these plates. I’ve never needed to attach any of the accessories to them but don’t see why there would be any issue.
    I could take pictures if you like.

    Pictures would be fantastic. I’d love to see where they mounted them.

    Thanks!

    I have them on my 800 and 1200gs oem paniers. No issues. Just mesure with the bottles before drilling the holes.

    In fact I’d be interested if anyone has any bottle holder or other accessories available for the plate they are not using.
