KTM 690 Enduro and Giant Loop stuff

Man, I'm not out to flame Giant loop, but I can't get this stuff to fit right on my 690...

My specs are 2010 KTM 690 Enduro with a Safari tank and a renazco seat.

I tried the Buckin roll tank bag but it doesn't fit well on the Safari tank. I tried the Fandango tank bag but there is a big gap underneath because of the Safari filler neck. I have the Coyote bag on the back but my boots loosen the forward cinch straps... Man, I really like the build quality of this stuff but just can't get it to fit well.

Anyone out there have any ideas? I've been trying to fit this stuff literally for days...

They make nice stuff... but it's not designed for the 690
I use a wolfman tank bag fit's great
and a giant loop great basin bag for camping on a sw moto rack with custom made backets off the bitch peg
mounts.
no one makes bags that fit the 690

Been pretty happy with my Great Basin bag. It's taken alot of beatings and the only problems have been strap ends getting toasted from the super hot exhaust. I've been using zip ties to move the cinch straps further back off the passenger pegs. Next step is to add some carabiners so that I only have to loosen the straps to release a side.

The only downside is that it's pretty much impossible to set up the bag so that you don't have to move it to fuel up.

Could you upload some pictures to see in what point do you have the fitting problem?

I use in my 690 a bag similar to Giant Loop without any problem.

Tank bags and off road just don't mix, use the rear fender pack

I've had two tailbag tool packs fail in the past 4 rides. One was from the metal clip that holds onto the plastics cutting through the webbing and the other from the stitching pulling out. The only tail packs worthy of standing up to single track are the kind that bolt onto the fender. Even then I have to strap them down to keep them from wobbling fore and aft...

So far I'm batting 0.

Hey Bobzilla, how did you mount the two together (or did you?). I have the coyote at the front edge of SW Mototech rack and can put a dry bag with tent and accessories behind it. I like the idea of the movi for tools, etc. Any help will be appreciated.

PS I haven't ridden with the stuff, it is just strapped on in a way that looks and feels like it will work.
