Part No

Anyone know the part no for securing the 1200gs topbox to the adapter plate?

If you are talking about the Vario topbox, it attaches to the adapter plate by itself, no other parts involved. The topbox has the locking clamps built in.

I read somewhere that a securing pin has been added to the vario top box so that it does not come off accidentally. In fact, the new adapter plate has a recess for it. But I have no clue to its part no, if it exists at all.

If your case and mount are fairly new you should be good to go.
Older cases need to have retrofit kit installed..
Here's a link to some photos

Lensgrinder, that was what I was looking for. I will place the order for the part tomorrow. Many thanks, much appreciated.

In your links there is a mention of the Enduro Kit, do you have a part no or a photo of it?

I don't know about the enduro kit, but I can tell you mine stayed on all the way up the Dalton highway and back.
It also stayed on while bouncing over all sorts of rocky trails in south west Utah.

It has never come off while riding and I've bounced it around on trails, where if it was going to come off it would have.
With all that said, you can permanently attatch it with nuts and bolts if you like, which is what I think the guy was talking about, but I don't believe it is neccesary.
Richard.
