S1000XR Sidecases

Hi all. I have a question and please forgive my ignorance as I’m a complete BMW newbie. I have a 2016 S1000XR and am looking at a set of R1200R sidecases. My question is will they fit my factory installed sidecase mounts. Many thanks in advance.

The panniers are different part numbers so I don't think they will fit. They are very similar though.

Thanks Benny. The following is what I was able to find out.

Panniers from an R1200RS WILL fit onto an XR.
However, panniers from an XR will NOT fit onto an R1200RS.
This is because the RS panniers have an indentation at the top rear, close to the grab rail, obviously for fitment to that particular bike. (This indentation is not present on the XR panniers)

I wanted to follow up with everyone. I bought the cases and they installed perfectly. No mods and no adjustments needed.
