Has any of you mounted these on a Tiger 800XC using the Wolfman racks? If so, can you advise what the outside to outside dimension is for the setup? That is, the measurement from outside of one bag to the outside of the bag on the other side of bike. Thanks in advance.

The Wolfman racks on a Tiger are 21". Plus 10.5 x 2 for the bags (dimensions from Wolfman's site), you're looking at 42" min.

Wow! That makes for a wide ass load! You wouldn't happen to have any photos of the set-up by chance? Rear view shot of rack with bags and without bags would be nice.

Yeah. That's why I went with the Monarch Pass bags on my XC. It's a real bummer that they made them so damn fat. I wish they went wider/lower rather than out.

No... I don't actually own the setup. Like Levian, I went with the Monarch Pass bags, but haven't even had a need to mount them up yet (just use the Hoops around town). If I need more capacity in the future, I'm thinking the Globescout hard cases with a 28L/35L combo, which should give me plenty of capacity for my needs at around 37".

I dont have my bike in front of me so do you know if there is room under the seat for the buckle.
Also I either have a HB rear box or I have a pelican case with Rotopax that I carry on a HB rear rack. Can I move the large top buckle enough to the side that my box will still attatch to the rack. I dont think there is enough clearance under the box for the buckle.
Thanks in advance and looks like a great product.
Sorry, I didn't see this until now You should be able to move the buckle enough to the side that it will be out of the way when traveling with a passenger. If not we have these https://wolfmanluggage.com/index.cfm...product_id=310 that you can install instead of the straps with the buckles. Hope that helps!

We have seen some guys fabricate their own plate for that area to allow the bags to mount. We should have a solution in the next few months or so...hope that helps.

Wondering if you have come up with anything yet?

And a dedicated rack would be nice- they made a lot of those old GSs you know- I'm sure you'd sell enough to justify a run of them!
C'mon, someone must have tried these on an old oilhead!

Is it possible to run the straps under the pillion seat with the buckles to one of the sides on the r1200gs? It would seem there is enough space on the exhaust side which makes the setup better for 2up riding.

Thanks!

They do velcro joining straps which would make it easier to fit the straps under the seat- would do away with the buckles.

Hi Goose,

Ya what Three Dawg said, we have these straps that work well when you have a passenger...

Will these work with the Rotopax also? I know it would be wide but when you need fuel on a 950 there isn't a whole lot of options unless you want to buy some $1800 safari tanks. I don't need that much fuel that often and the rotopax would be perfect. If they work and anyone has a photo of them mounted with rotopax especially on a KTM Adventure 9XX that would be sweet. Thanks..

Hello,

The bags will definitely work with the rotopax set up. You are correct, it would be a bit wide...

Thanks!!

I wanted give a BIG thanks to Eric and Wolfman for donating some great prizes for the WESTFEST RALLY this year in Buena Vista, CO.

Eric gave us some awesome gear to give away at the raffle, but I was really impressed with the Expedition Dry Duffle bag. The bag had some great features built in that are specific for moto riders and it would work soooo much better than a standard dry duffle from a sporting goods store After seeing the bags in person I was blown away with the functionality.

So thanks to a local company for their support! We really appreciate it!!

(Sorry for posting here I could not find a general Wolfman vendor thread....)

Props as well for the Sipapu Shingding. Thank you Dusty and of course also to Dubinki for the killer pants schwag. Our local vendors are the bomb. Always go there first.

My donation to Ben was a bronze medal.
