Luggage Top Box

I have a top box (BMW Part # 7 160 7 660 564) adjustable type, which is fitted to a F800GS which I bought for my wife.
I'd like to use the same top box on my new 1200GS.
The 800's support plate will not fit the 1200 unless I modify it, something I don't want to do, because I'd like to fit the top box on either bike.
Local dealers in the UAE (Dubai/Abu Dhabi) are telling me that I cannot fit the top box to the 1200 because the box was specifically supplied for the 800and advise me that I'd have to buy a complete new box just for the 1200, sounds like nonsense to me.
All I need is a support plate for the 1200 which I could fabricate if I had to but I'd much rather get the BMW manufactured items.
The local dealers do not carry any stock as far as luggage is concerned, they simply buy and ship everything in for customers, like just about everything else.
I'm hoping that someone can tell me what the part numbers are which I require to fit the above mentioned top box to my 1200 and where I can purchase them please.
Appreciate any help any one can offer. Thanks

Try Max BMW. Here's a link to their parts fische. Select your bike from the list, select 77-Accessories, then select Diagram #77_0008. Scroll down on the right and you should be able to find what you need. Good luck!
