990 baja tank bag strap

i just bought a 2013 990 baja. i have had it a couple of weeks and havent bothered with any of the bags, i just hopped on the bike and rode! last night i decided to put the tank bag on and was 3/4 way done when i realised im missing a strap that goes from the left side of the bag to the crash bars. is there any way i can order that strap or what? im sure its cheap but i dont wanna have to buy a whole bag for a $2 dollar strap i assume. anyone have ideas? im sure the dealer would have forgotten about it by now or "its missing" deal.

I'm sure you could make your own for less than a couple of bucks.

Tank bag

Mine came with no rain cover. Where the hell can you come up with a factory rain cover?

What is the preferred method to route the straps? It seems to me on the outside they will rub the bodywork over time or get caught on something.

See if you can hook a brother up on a rain cover.

At least it used to be possible to order the rain cover separatly, the store had a complete bag on the shelf and I could buy just the cover and he ordered a new cover for that bag.

He looked it up while I was there that it was possible to buy it separatly.

You have to order a new Baja 990 to get the strap.

Got my bike on Saturday. Happy to report that all of the straps were in the back. So was the rain cover for the tank bag. But, like so many others, my rear sprocket was not the Super Sprox. Dealer will rectify.

Only had the bike for 3 days and already have to take it back for service. Air in the coolant system and I've tried 3 times now to bleed it out. Can't safely raise the front the required 20".

Already have 200 miles. Should have another 70 by the end of tomorrow and then she'll be with the dealer, hopefully for not too long.

armourbi,

Remove the rear wheel with the bike on the center stand (obviously). Then tip the bike bake on the tips of the swingarm. This will get the front wheel far enough in the air to bleed the cooling system and it is plenty safe. Tipping the bike back, the center stand can't fold up on you.
