Note that part shown above is unfinished.
Actual part is available unfinished, Matte Black, and Matte Silver-Gold.
Replace the "weak link" in your K1200LT's Top Case. There
is no replacement component or repair kit available from BMW for the
OEM latch on your LT's trunk. A new part is available only as part of
the lower trunk assembly, costing over $800, (not including labor).
After replacing the entire lower half of the trunk, you will still have a
trunk latch that is still just as susceptible to breakage as what you replaced!
This unit WILL NOT BREAK and it is much less expensive than the manufacturer's
