Original BMW K1200LT Tankbag

Hi all,

I've been searching on the net to find some info or pictures on how the original LT tankbag is fixed on the lid, but without success.
How is it fixed on the lid? Does the fixing item come with the tankbag or is it something separate to order? Anyone has a picture?

Txs a heap!

Have a nice day!
Paul

Re: Original BMW K1200LT Tankbag

Not sure it's the same tank bag or not, but mine attaches to the lid of the odments box, the bag has two velcro tabs on the top left and right corners and a loop on the center of the bottom. The Velcro tabs wrap around the top corners of the Odment lid and fastens to velcro fixed on the inside of the lid corners. The bottom loop wraps around the latching nub on the lid. I can get you pictures later if you need them.

Txs palarimer.

As they say, one picture is worth a 1000 words, or something like that. If it isn't too much of a hassle, I would appreciate.

Cheers
P.

Have a nice day!

Re: Original BMW K1200LT Tankbag

Received the bag the other day and fixed the velcro tabs. It looks good and holds just the elementary stuff. I was afraid of looking like working for a removal company with a tankbag on which you can rest your chin...
Just waiting for the weekend sun now...
Thanks, palarimer, for the info.

Have a nice day!

Re: Original BMW K1200LT Tankbag

I have a good BMW tank bag for the LT that I no longer need. I replaced mine with a larger RKA bag. If any one is interested PM me.

less expensive option to the Original BMW K1200LT Tankbag

This is what I use at a cost of around $40




I took a small strap and ran around the top of the stingray to secure it from the top. (also doubles as an over the shoulder strap when carrying luggage into the Plaza Hotel in NYC

Then I took another piece of webbing and took out a few bolts that hold the seat in place on it's hinge. I then bolted the webbing into place and sowed a plastic hook to connect to the D ring on the tank bag to hold the bottom of the tank bag in place.

When I need to remove the tank bag, I unclip at the bottom and remove the strap from the stingray and off I go.

I know that , but I am strapped for time and will try and get some pictures of the ghetto mod up later..

You could also use your own straps and velcro and make the same type connection as the BMW Original tank bag if you would like...

Re: Original BMW K1200LT Tankbag

Hi Joe,

The original bag doesn't hold much. Couldn't even get a pair of sunglasses w/ case in it. But, if you really want to go with the tiny little bag, let me know. It's not perfect, but not trashed either. Seeing that we have the same b-day, it's yours for the asking.

Have fun,
Jer
