Tank Bag

I have a nelson rigg bag that worked great on my FJR 1300, but I have to use the backpack straps and a bungee to make it work on my F800. I like the bag but setting it up is a pain with straps everywhere. I saw a bag attachment thingy on twisted throttle. You attach a base plate to you tank and then the back snaps in and off real easy.

They call it a gas tank mount and they say if will go on the f800gs. Has anyone ever tried this on the F800 or F650. I would really like to to see it up close.

Maybe a security issue, but it looks easy to take with you!

I had one of these on my Tiger and thought it was a great bag.

The only way to mount it on the F800GS is to remove the center panel and drill and reinforce it so you can attach the mount.

I chose to use the Cortech Mini rather than do this.

Here is what it looked like mounted on the Tiger -

Wolfman Enduro

I have a Wolfman Enduro that I ran power into directly from the ignition powerlet. Inside the tank bag I have a plug in for my iPhone and a "cigarette" lighter plug for my camera charger. It is a small bag, but I prefer that over some of the backpack-sized tank bags.

Cool bag, I have the small expedition tank bag from Wolfman and I really like it! The small expedition is waterproof (much more so than I originally expected but I never got anything wet inside even after leaving it outside in heavy rain for days).

Is the Enduro also waterproof? I couldn't find anything on their site...

Another thing I like about the small expedition is it is not too stiff but stiff enough to hold it's shape and not let rain in or stuff fall out. This means if I'm moving my body around in the rough stuff I can easily push it out of the way and it doesn't crush the nuts

It is not waterproof, though I have never had any water get inside. If it was submerged I am sure that it would let plenty of water in.

Yep, here is one close from behind.

The mounting straps consist of two clip straps that are permanently mounted under the seat and the clips poke out at the front of the seat. The bag has a clip for each of these straps. You can see one of these clips clearly on the back left side of the bag in the picture.

There is a strap permanently attached to the front of the bag that wraps under the instrument cluster support tubes and then clips back into the bag. (You can kind of see this clip on the front left side of the bag)

The top of the bag has an interior strap across the top of the contents to help keep things tidy if you want. There are also two clips at the back of the top of the bag (seen in photo, unclipped) that mate to the bottom of the bag. I usually only keep the left side clipped and just loosely fit the top of the bag over the bottom, it hasn't opened up during any rough stuff yet, makes for quick one handed access with gloves for the camera, etc.

All in all the bag has very versatile mounting straps that should mount to any bike and it fits well to the F8. I'm very happy with the bag.

Question Cortech Mini instructions - strap mount - help

Hey all....feel like a goob for askin, but i cant figure out how to install the cortech super mini back on my 800gs....i have the bmw comfort seat, but i don't suppose that matters.
I bought the bag second hand, no instructions.... and everything i find on the net doesnt show what to attch it to under the seat .... or really around the handlebar post....

I know it should be easy :)

also, on of the straps has a different shaped clip than the other 2, cant see how it should buckle.

anyway, any help is appreciated.

Not a tank bag fan but finally had bit the bullet for practical reasons (easier access to camera) and bought the Fandango tank bag. A little expensive but fits like it was made for the bike. Looks great in black and doesn't interfere with seat key or my GPS mount, although does make insert of ignition key a little tight. Perfect size - wide open compartment with divider. Allows for easy install of custom foam.

floppy...but you see the ass pouch! very nifty!
I had a Wolfman on my monster and then on the 658. However, there is a flaw with the way the harness if MFGd. If you pull one of the lines through the holder the bag/strap systems is forever FuXXX0r3d. I went w/the Wunderlich faux tank bag. While it holds far less than my Wolfman, it at least has a consistent perch on the bike and on/off action doesnt scratch the snot out of the faux tank.
