We wanted the side bags to be high enough to take a bit of the weight of a dry bag running across the seat so theres less weight on the rear tank
Looks perfect!

Hey folks Im looking for a tank bag to start out with for my commute on my ktm 690 smc. I have class at 10am and then work till 8pm and sometimes late bartending shifts till 2am. I hate wearing back packs while riding so if I could even split the weight for now till I get a rear/tank bag setup. How would the ktm tank bag 75012019100 do for carrying a small binder, math text book and a light backpacking jacket? http://www.ktmtwins.com/ktm-690-990-...nduro-tank-bag

Eventually I want to get a larger rear luggage system like a pelican case on tail so I can lock it or a quickly detachable duffle style bag. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thankfully summer is closing in for CA and less luggage will be needed (less layers for day time commute and for night commute.)

I'm not sure a tank bag is going to fit you books very well. The KTM bag you posted might work.. but I would go to a KTM dealer with your books and see if it would work. you might find something else that would work better in the process.

I would suggest a rear rack that you could strap your backpack to. then you still have the use of a backpack once you get to class.

Which rear rack would you recommend? I had a kriega us-20 for a day but returned it because I didnt have a rack. Something like that would be pretty efficient cause its not huge and I can easily toss it over my shoulder and go.

I just received my new rear rack from Wolfman (and I don't even have my bike yet!).

I like that rack (!) and wonder if it works without the pannier frames. Also somewhere in the depths of the thread there have been pictures with tank panniers on the bikes. Who has those, likes them, and what are they?

Thanks!

I will be using it with the Wolf side racks, but it appears the top rack can be used without pannier frames - the kit has spacers which I assume take care of that, and it mentions the possibility of needing different length bolts depending on the specific application. I will check the instructions again this evening to see what they say regarding this.

I checked, and this rack will definitely work without side racks/pannier frames, by simply using the "standard" length bolts that come with the kit. When using the top rack with the Wolf side racks, one uses slightly longer bolts provided in the kit with the side racks.

Just finished my Kreiga Overlander 60 install

My winter prep of my 09' 690R is finally complete. I have added the tail rack, Overlander 60 system on the KTM luggage rack, and the Rotopax fuel and water tanks. Love the quality of the Keiga - very solid and seems as if it will take ome serious abuse. Looking forward to testing it out heavily this spring!

I have that KTM hard parts tank bag, the quality is fantastic, but Ronin Moto is correct, there is not a hope in hell of getting a binder into that bag. Its fairly small. My 7 inch Samsung tablet snugly fits in the top map pocket.

I opened my KTM tank bag Thursday and the plastic cracked on the map pocket, I guess it was to cold. So who has the best tank bag for the 690, I am to lazy to look back.

I like the KTM bag. Why not just replace the plastic. Canvas shop could open it up and restitch a new, maybe better quality piece of plastic in there. Save some $.

Goose,
I am using the Giant Loop Fandango that I had on my 990. It seems like it will work out.
