Tank Bags

Any suggestions for a good fitting tank bag for the 2014 1190 R. Looking at the Giant Loop but I have no idea if it fits well and doesn't block the fuel filler or rider comfort

Either sizes of the Giant Loop tank bags work well. I have a couple year old Diablo version that zips from the right side, across the bottom and up the left side.
FAIR WARNING! They are not waterproof at all. Your maps, phone, wallet....etc will get wet with the slightest downpour. And make sure to put some protective vinyl down or the mounting harness will buff your tank raw.
I think this is a KLR, but fits the 1190 the same.

When fueling just unzip one side or the other and flip the out of the way.
The newest models have two zippers (one on each side).

Another vote for the giant loop bags here. Easy refueling and a port for a charging cable on the front are nice touches. I've had it out in torrential downpours and all my contents stated dry.

My vote goes to Wolfman. Great materials, fit and flexibility.

I just rode up to Wolfman's last week and tried out a few different tank bags. I ended up w/ the new Blackhawk bag. Best fit of the bunch on the 1190.



Sorry it's the only photos I could find.

I have a good experience with the Enduristan Sandsorm 3E on my 2014 1190R.
Fits well, you can flip it very easy to fuel up and it's been absolutely waterproof in a recent 8 hour trip through downpours.
Variable volume (I thought I won't use, but comes handy occasionally), nice interior.

Last year when I bought the first 1190 I hit the powerparts catalogue...the bag can expand and take a HELLUVA a lot of kit...plus has the waterproof cover that slips on in seconds, been through a down pour and everything was bone dry.

Just fitted the SW Motech City bag. Not cheap but top quality. It fits to a permanently attached tank ring and is a simple click on and off. Capacity is 11 to 15 litres which is ideal for what I want.

I had the City tank bag from SW as well but it fouls the bars so you cannot turn that well at low speed so I sold it.

The click on fitting on the bag is not initially attached to the bag. You have to drill four holes in the base of the bag to fit the connector once you have fitted the tank ring and trial fitted the bag for optimum position. If you fit the connector at the very front of the bag (I.e. With the bag as far back as possible) then there is no problem. The bars just touch the bag on full lock but no interference as such. Certainly if the bag's mount was installed further back on the bag it would be an issue.

close up picture of bars on full lock and bag in position. There is about 5mm clearance.

I have the KTM power parts one also, it's roomy, and unclips easily to flip forward for fueling. If you have a ton of stuff bolted to your bars it might not stay in the fueling position. I never notice it, even when standing to ride.

Hey Yellow pig what are the dimensions of the map reader pocket? I am wondering if an i pad mini would fit. I have the beta plus rear bag and love the quality so I hope it does.
Cheers, Tony
