Has anyone else had this issue?

Just bought my new to me 2012 K1600GTL, 14K miles. It's been 100 here all week but both of my roundels on either side of the bike have fallen off.... I see they run $70 a piece to replace and are held on by just sticky tape?!?!

Part number 51147721222 from BMW...

anyone have a cheaper source / better mounting method?

I was going to upgrade to shrodie but just realized they require the factory roundel....m

are you sure it's really a bmw under there? maybe the previous owner stuck the roundels onto an inferior motorcycle.

Awesome, I'll order from Stephen! Did you buy 70mm or 70mm MS. Do you also have roundel lights or just replace the OEM roundels?


Thanks so much!

that is the original roundel minus the BMW colored portion lol. The top portion fell off on both sides.
Good chance previous owner of your bike had Schroeder Roundels on your bike and removed them before selling. That would explain why yours "...fell off".

If I remember the installation correctly, there would be a pair of screws out near the perimeter of the circle that hold the Schrodie to the molding. I don't see any evidence of the holes that should be there for that.
