Top Case Central Locking

Post by Old-Git »

Hi all, grateful if someone who has this fitted could take a pic of the connection(s) under the seat for this please.
My fully loaded '15 LE has everything, except the top case doesn't have CL (which is fitted, it operates the glove boxes and panniers).
Thanks

If that is possible for not too much money I would definitely go for that as well so if you find out anything off forum please let me know

That appears to only cover the side cases unless I am reading it incorrectly

It's all a bit beyond me, but is this thread any help, https://www.bmwlt.com/forums/rt-series/ ... -case.html

Not too sure whether a "non-electric" top case can be converted to an "electric" one, I could be wrong.

Sounds like I have the choice of spending over a grand on a new topbox or continue using the key, well that's an easy decision

Oops! My bad. I am sure that is it possible to convert.

Even the all singing, all dancing top case doesn't come with a high level brake light, more £'s. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BAz_PSB0ybM
