Homeish made lock ring tank bag

For quite some time I have been eye fornicating a lock ring tank bag. But the price for them is absurd, so I decided to make one out of my existing tank bag.


Used this part:
http://www.motorcycle-superstore.com...FQYGnQodXHIAHw


And a small plastic cutting board.






Bolt ring to gas tank ring. It came with all the bolts and allen wrenches needed



Remove all the little annoying flaps that have the magnets in them



Bolt second part of lock ring to cutting board, then bolt to tank bag. Used big fender washers inside the bag.



Lock to bike and ride!!!



Sticks up a little high, but I didn't want to risk scratching my precious paint

Nice.

You could use a heat gun and bend the cutting board a little further down to follow the curve without any contact.

It seems to be working out pretty well, went for a ride last night with it loaded down and hit around 95 and it held strong.

Gonna steal that one, thanks.

Cheers.
