    Gen3 OE pillion footrest blanking solution

    Hi,

    Went to order some of these for my '16 bike yesterday, Thinking they would be the Black torx ones. The supplying dealer has received a silver allen type bolt. Anyone know if these have changed to these .i.e. post up a pic of a 17 bike with no pillion option or where i may be able to obtain something similar. Do not want blanking plate (R & G, Evotech )

    Thanks

    I only really want the black flat machined bolts. Think leaving nothing in there looks unsightly imho. Looks like BMW must have superseded them this year with the silver ones. Can anyone post a pic on here on a MY17 bike without pillion kit so i can have a look. The dealer has them in so i just need to say yes or no.

    Thanks

    Always useful to have secure tie down points on the bike

    Subframe Screws

    The OEM part number for the subframe screws is 46 71 8 535 561, but they are ridiculously expensive for what they are.

    When I purchased my rear seat cover for my '15 it came complete with 4 flat black alloy blanking screws. Fitted great and looked like a factory fit, which I suppose they were.
    I did hear that they could be purchase separately from BMW but were a little expensive for what they were.

    Subframe Screws

    My S1000RR arrived with them fitted as standard as I didn't bother with the optional Pillion Package.
