Anyone familiar with the OEM KLR650 tank bag?

Anyone familiar with the OEM KLR650 tank bag?

I'd like to find out how it mounts - magnetic or straps? I'm contemplating it for an aftermarket IMS tank - which is plastic, will not accommodate magnets.

Thanks!

No magnets or straps, it fits over the tank almost like a bra, and hooks on the front and rear with plastic rail-like hooks that snap over the seams of the tank and are held in place by the tension of the bag itself.
Probably (definitely) won't fit on an aftermarket plastic tank.

I've seen the ones that hook on but mine has magnets
Wish I would have got the one with hooks, had no idea there were two different ones.

In any case, I agree that it's not a good choice for an aftermarket tank, pretty specific to the stock KLR tank.

I would think a Wolfman Enduro tank bag would be the ticket...

or Wolfman Explorer LITE... works great on the big IMS tank. it's also quickly removable, where the Enduro isn't so quick to remove.

i've never used the OEM tankbag, don't think i've even seen one inn person, but i've seen frequent complaints that it's "in your lap" and the map window is worthless while seated on the bike.

I have the KLR tank bag and its real nice. It probably wouldn't work on another brand tank because its specific to the stock Kawasaki tank with those plastic clips.
