Quick-lok adaptor?

Has anyone adapted a Quick-lok or any other ring mount tank bag to the LT?

I have this with the Powerlet electrical kit.

Tank Bags - Marsee 10L Rocket Pocket- Corona Mount for BMW

Just touches the bars at full lock. Somewhat blocks view of my Nav III GPS. Needs a separate cover to be waterproof. This is the biggest negative for me as the cover is a pain to carry and put on. Second biggest negative is the corona ring is fairly ugly. They should sell a cover for it when not in use.

Extra storage is nice and charging phones and such on the road is very handy.

What would you like to know? I am not the best mind reader.

Re: Quick-lok adaptor?

I'm just looking for a way to mount it to the LT. All the ones I have seen mount to the fuel filler. I did see one that had an adapter for a bike that didn't have the filler in the center, however the adapter only fit one specific bike, which was not an LT.

How did you mount yours?

I followed the directions from RPW and mounted it on the oddments box lid. I was concerned about its strength, but so far so good. I didn't seal the bolt holes at first and rain leaked into the oddments box. A little RTV took care of that.

Here are a couple pictures, but, unfortunately, it is getting dark, my garage isn't well lit, and iPad cameras suck in low light. If these aren't good enough, let me know and I will get the Canon out tomorrow when it is lighter and get some good pics.

I could not get the system to attach both files for some reason so hopefully the second picture comes through on this message.

Re: Quick-lok adaptor?

Pictures look fine. I'm going to have to check to see if the other ring mounts can be mounted that way. The one I saw that was adapted to a bike without a center filler had a bracket that kept the ring up off the surface.

With this one being made for the LT, could the mount be used for different bags?

I have lots of time to shop and compare. After buying the Pet Palace I don't think I'm going to get to spend on extras for a while.

No idea. Might contact the folks at RPW and ask them.

Re: Quick-lok adaptor?

Voyager - what is the remote for that you have mounted on the bottom of the oddments lid? Does it interfere with what you load in the box?

Just a garage door opener. I only carry a few things in the oddments box. Tire pressure gauge, log book for gas purchases and maintenance, spare Torx bit for fairing screws, spare tire valve caps, etc., nothing too bulky.

So many different ideas on this forum. I used to leave a keyfob opener in the oddiments box, with a patch of velcro on the stingray to attach it to when heading home so I didn't have to stop to dig it out when approaching the house.

I now have a full size opener permanently wired into the bike run by an auto switch.
