Tank Bag Mount

KTMNate,

I replaced the side release clips that came on the bag with ladder-lock buckles. Then I use a webbing fastener to attach webbing to the frame under the seat. The webbing then comes out from under the seat and attaches to the ladder locks on the bag. It’s difficult to describe in words. I’ll take a couple pictures and post them by Monday.

The ladder locks can be sewn on by hand. I like the set-up because the bag is a little easier to install and remove, I don’t have to worry about the straps rubbing the paint job, and it is still easy to get under the seat by just loosening the webbing at the ladder locks.

I like your idea. Slick setup. I installed snap buckles on mine, butt I like your idea of connecting them at the bag. Gives me some ideas for mine. Thanks.

Slick

That is slick.

I installed screw-in snaps to the bottom lip of the seat. I had to cut the screws down so they were only 1/4" long or so. Then I cut off the straps, punched a hole in the ends and installed the mating half of the snap. It's a lot more convenient than the original setup where you have to remove the bag mount to remove the seat. The difference now is that you have to remove the seat to remove the bag mount!!

That's what makes this setup slick.

I see Sir Pyn has not yet deigned to answer you so I will ... seeings how I have em too. Southwest Motech. The best. I believe these bars have proved to be the strongest. As well as the easiest to mount/dismount. No damaged tanks yet and believe me there have been opportunities.

That's a good idea. What I don't have yet are the buckles.


Nate

ps -the sw motech bars are If you have the stock suspension and ride hard they could hit the stock fender. I fixed it by adding the .52 fork springs.

High Durk!

Yes, the panniers are from Roger Guhr = RMS and it is very easy to mount it. I think, they are the best, you can buy.
