Yes I had the same problem with that tire - it is taller then most tires at100/100. Make sure your forks are dropped all the way in the triple clamps. Very noisy tire but wears very well but I now prefer the MT21. Their desert tractionator rear tire is by far my go to tire.

Any SE owners have a Tail Bag they'd recommend that could mount to a rear aluminum rack?

A tank bag is out since I ride up on the tank on this bike compared to my 990 adv, I'm interested in something like a Wolfman Peak tail bag, but they state it's mounting system may not be good enough for offroad. Don't want a Rollie since it'll be used like a tank bag (quick access to interior items)

Please let me know your ideas and experiences. This will be more for day rides

I've had the Wolfman peak tail bag mounted for a couple of years with zero issues. I have it on a Touratech tail rack. It can attached in 2 ways, with hooks or you can just use the straps. I check it every now and then just like any other bag mounted. Not an issue. Its not waterproof, you need a cover..

I use a Kriega US10 on top of a black dog rear plate. Waterproof, rugged and not TOO big. Can be a pain to get into things deep in the bag but its low profile so it doesn't get in the way throwing a leg over the bike out in the bush

I've also been using the Kriega drybags for many years, also on a BlackDog plate. I've got US-10/US-20s that I combine in various ways. They are a bit fiddly, but once you get the set-up dialed, they work like a charm. I have a US-10 with my standard tools/supplies that I move from bike to bike.
In the picture below I've obviously slid a Rotopak underneath.

Cross post loopback from photo thread:

I currently have a GL Coyote that I used on my XRR but I may be 2 up at times so I'm looking into options aside from stepping up to a GL Great Basin which is still a possibility if the woman has zero desire to join me. Whats the preferred side soft luggage and rack combo. I see a lot of the Wolfman Expeditions on here.

How many of you have reinforced your sub frames and where is the normal failure point aka what needs to be strengthened?

I have a CJD LC8 rear rack and plan on tossing a 3 gal rotopax and now maybe a Kriega US10 on there.

Kriega, looks to be nice stuff and very versatile. Wonder how their US20 or 30 would do on a rack hanging off the side like the Wolfman Expeditions dry saddle bags.

For day rides and back and forth to work I only use the ktm-universal tail bag. best bag I've ever used for day rides. It removes in 15 seconds or less and installs in just a minute with no mounts (has strap/clips). I have it on my 1190 right now but swap it out on to my SE too (SE has a trail tech) rack. This bag will fit any rack that is tapered towards the back (like the stock 1190 rack). it will hold everything a tank bag will hold and you don't know its there. it's also a back pack when removed. Won't keep things dry during a downpour, but is good enough if you get caught in the rain. It also has a waterproof cover inside that you can put on and still ride the bike without it blowing off. it also stays put at speeds of 130+ mph…. so I've heard

First, check the coolant level in the radiator (not just the reservoir). If the coolant gets too low the fan switch won't operate. If it is low coolant you probably have a waterpump leaking coolant.
