Magnetic Tank Bag on Plastic Tank
I have a Marsee magnetic bag I bought for and still use on my R1100 GS. Great bag, too bad they don't make this model anymore. Anyway, I would like to use it on my 2003 R1150RT which has a plastic tank.
I read somewhere in the MOA ON a few months ago where someone attached magnets to the underside on the plastic of the tank area of the fairing with great sucess. Lost that article.
Anyway has anyone had any positive experience with this?? If so where did you get the magnets? Any particular size or shape, etc. Any advice as to how to do this, etc. I assume any flat ones could be glued on etc. Would of course have to get polarity (I guess its polarity, whatever) right or they would push rather than attract..........
Ideas or experience??
