Did a test fit of my Coyote on my Husqvarna 610. I need to dial it in still on location. I have it stuffed with towels, and it will likely be smaller once I load it with some tools, a tube, clothes and tent. My sleeping bag and pad are not bike travel friendly, but I don't camp enough to warrant buying a smaller packing version, plus the pad or bag may not even go with me on summer trips. Thinking I might install the passenger pegs to have a suitable place to strap the lower end??

You can tell the bag is tough as nails. Now the owner needs to get back into the swing of having soft luggage again.





Right side mock up mounting


Left Side, one fingers worth of gap from the exhaust...


With the supplied clamp, I have no fear of exhaust heat in this area

Trial test fitting the Coyote........

That's the tent duffle that corrado113 made for me. He's in the vendor's section - Custom Sewing and Cordura Items

I sent him a drawing with dimension/specs and he sewed it up, 1000 denier Cordura, 2 zippered ends, an extra pocket for rain gear and webbing loops for straping.
It holds my Big Agnes Seedhouse 2, footprint, Frogg Toggs and it has a little room for a few extras.

Be extra careful placing and removing straps near hot exhaust pipes...
If it touches the exhaust, even briefly (just enough to create a shiny spot), it can weaken the strap a lot & can lead to a failure later on down the line...

That is a HUGE concern of mine. I am going to look into it more tonight over a few and hope to devise a better solution. The exhaust just comes out real high on the Husky and there is not much room around it. Might try to cobble up some sort of shield there as well.

Thanks

Used the coyote for an overnight couple of weekends ago.

The bag is tough and it works.

Had a fender pack (tube, etc) strapped to the stock rear rack. I felt it come loose when it slapped me in the back, turned my head to see what it was and tried to turn the 990 like it was the 525 in the middle of the climb.

The result was a quite miserably executed u-turn.

No damage other than a little scrape on the crashbar and one on the handguard. The gianloop bags do a very fine job of keeping the bike up off the ground.

This weekend we've got a loop planned that should be 500+ (300 dirt) miles around the Olympic Peninsula. Weather forecast is looking sweet so it should be a good time.

I got my Coyote yesterday, and it's awesome! I've got a Big Agnes SL1, down sleeping bag, 7 bath towels, and room for tools, shoes, and probably more, and it's a good thing, cuz I ain't going anywhere without my towels Maybe I should have got yellow so I don't look like such a ducking fork with all the orange. Meh.

I used the fender hook loop to wrap around the stock rack (although the GL site states that it fits the 640 without the rack, I actually disagree, and believe it works better, although I am looping it through, and not using the fender hooks), and it is not only super secure, but it draws the bag to the rear. I still get to keep the small pelican for the DSLR, and there is room between the two for a small pvc tube that I will put the poles for the tent into, and strap to the rack. They will be unseen below the Coyote.

Excellent product, and I want to say kudos to your Canadian dealer, MotoOverland for getting it here in two days, with a discount for it being the bag he used for demos, and there was not a single mark that I saw on the bag that indicated it. Is it summer yet?
