The GTL seat is a single unit vs the GT’s two piece seat, and requires an adapter. You may be better served having your GT seat customized or getting an aftermarket seat rather than buying a GTL seat.
The GT’s existing rack will accept a GTL trunk or a GT / RT trunk - I think all use the same box, and the GTL adds the tall pad (the triangular piece that sticks up above the box isn’t good for anything). Try to find one cheap (forums, eBay, etc) and get it painted or vinyl-wrapped to match your bike.
Even if you pay full price for the above items, it will be cheaper than trading for a GTL, plus you’ll retain the GT’s peg clearance.
