Armrests for GT top box

Hi, I’m looking for some ideas and guidance on armrests. I have a 2014GT that I put a color matched top box. Wife is wanting armrests but I’m not sure which ones will fit. Any suggestions? Thanks! I did search but didn’t find anything from anyone who actually put a set on.

Re: Armrests for GT top box

My understanding is that the GTLE armrests from any year will fit, but the side grab handles on the GT will need to be swapped out for the (wider?) grab handles from a GTL or there will be interference. I'm not 100% certain on this, but reasonably sure I've seen this come up before.

Re: Armrests for GT top box

Qball-16 has it right as concerns the BMW Exclusive armrests.

Other K16 owners have found other solutions using various aftermarket armrests, with varying degrees of modifications needed to install them.

Head on over to K1600forum.com and do a search for armrests to get more detailed responses.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...
