530exc luggage question

I've got a bunch of Kriega packs that I use in various configurations for my other bike - ktm 1190 adventure but I do want to do some multi-day trail and camp rides next season on my 530 and this has me thinking about how to minimize my gear and what I can bring given that I don't want to load the bike down.

Current Kriega inventory:
US 30 x 1
US 20 x 2
US 10 x 2
Kriega tank bag mount strap thingy (I've used this with a US10on my 530 successfully)
Kriega rear fender mount strap adapters (the bolts / straps that I can drill and mount onto my 530 rear fender)
Enduristan Monsoon 3 soft panniers (but I won't use these on the 530)

I do not want to buy a giant loop coyote, Great Basin, etc - I'd rather use what I own and have come to love in my Kriega gear. Does anyone use Kriega gear on their 530 / etc bikes in such a way that uses:

Kriega US30 mounted onto the rear fender
Kriega US20s mounted vertically flanking the rear fender on an angle with the bottom forward

I'm thinking that with the us30 up top and the two us20s flanking the rear fender, that gives me a total of 70 litres of storage plus the us10 I can mount as a tank bag and my last us10 on top of the us30 if needed.

Anyone running something like this? I'd prefer to avoid any racks on this bike - I do want to keep it nice and light...that's why I bought it.

Thanks in advance

Hi
I ride a 530 with the wolfman e-12 saddle bags + small dry duffel ...no racks.

works great.

I also use the wolfman small enduro tank bag, and a small front fender bag, plus a camelback hawg pack.

works great, can even ride single tract

Very similar to your setup, i forsee no issues for u

My 450 with US 15 as saddle bags, a US 20 as a tail bag, and a duffle for the tent and chair. I've used this combo on two week long trips and it works well. One thing I found out is that I was carrying alot more than I used. Next trip I won't have the duffle bag. If your going to be really off road, my best tip would be to keep the weight low and keep your lightest bulky stuff in the tail bag.

Friend of mine has similar setup on his 530 which he says works very well. I plan to copy this. He has fitted a thin alloy stand-off cover to the muffler to prevent cooking the saddle bags - no weight and easy to remove.

Take a look at this review by Team ftb. I rode around Cambodia with him this time last year (I bought his old 525 a few years back, he's now on a 500).

He struck problems with the Kriega gear. All covered here:

Thanks. I believe the tank is close to 6 gallons.

I did that on my 530 as well. Works extremely well.
