Behold... the BMW R1250RS / R1250R / R1200RS / R1200R Stealth Backrest. After two years of research and development, the latest Stealth backrest from Pirates Lair has turned out to be a thing of beauty, simplicity, comfort and.. a worthy addition to the Pirates' Lair line of specialty motorcycle products. Our light-weight aluminum stealth rack bolts directly to the oem luggage rack in minutes. The backrest section slides on and off the bike in seconds when not needed. Just bolt it on and give your passenger the support and comfort they deserve/demand when they need it and say good-bye to those pesky fingernail imprints in your ribs. Check out the full write up in the April 2022 issue of BMW MOA “ON” Magazine.

Each Pirates Lair R1250RS / R1200RS Stealth Backrest kit includes a sleek and sturdy aluminum rear rack ( in a textured black finish), mounting hardware, and one hand-matched removable backrest. FYI.. Our first class upholstery is done by world renowned custom seat maker.. Sargent Cycle Products They have furnished imported materials that are almost an exact match visually for the oem seat material. Very clandestine. Blends perfectly with the rear of the bike. Full 3 year replacement warranty.

Install of the R12RS stealth rack is chimp easy* with basic tools and intellect taking all of 10 minutes. No modifications necessary. Fit's the 2015+ BMW R1200RS and 2018+ R1250RS. Manufactured by Pirates' Lair. * Chimp not included.

Note: This model stealth backrest will also fit the 2015+ BMW R1200R and R1250R when it's equipped with the optional BMW rear rack. If you purchase one from your dealer or on-line, you will NOT need the silver plastic cover in picture or the screws. Our kit includes all new screws..

Pirates' Lair is not a BMW dealer so we can not sell official BMW products from our website for profit. However... we can buy BMW emblems from our local dealer and offer them to our customers at our cost as an option should they want to install one on their Stealth bracket. Coincidentally, we have a slot machined into our brackets just for the 27mm BMW roundel part# B2328447 (pic at right.) It's a simple peel-n-stick emblem that we purchase for $13ea. If you go to a dealer... you'll pay $23ea. You have the choice of buying our backrest with or without the emblem.

Pirates' Lair also offers optional semi-soft luggage for all our Stealth backrests from Saddlemen Enterprises. Our Saddlemen Deluxe Roll Bag is a wonderfully versatile bag that fits every version of our world famous Stealth Backrests.... When your passenger isn't on board, flip the bag around and have it sitting in the seat behind you for better weight distribution.

SPECIALS: Want to save some money on a backrest? Not as anal as the rest of us poor bastards? On any given day, we may have a a slightly flawed bracket on hand. As the brackets are powder coated, sometimes the process leaves tiny blemishes on the visible finish surface. I deem these "unworthy" of selling at full retail price hence the discount. FYI.. my standards are very rigid. None of the flaws effect structural integrity. Flaws are cosmetic only.
