    Original Topic : 15 TrophySE TANK BAG Wanted

    Hey Dinty,
    You would probably be better off titling your post:
    “Wanted Trophy SE Tank Bag”. ( Trophy Moderator - Topic Title has since been altered.  )
    Many might read the title and think you are looking for a motorcycle.

    I had the OEM Tank Bag on my Trophy, and sold it. I’m not a tank bag person, I guess. It sold quickly on this Forum.

    Short of an OEM bag, you might consider a Bags Connection bag that connects to a tank ring. If they make a ring specific to the Trophy, they offer a selection of different sized bags to fit about any need.

      Thanks for the feedback, I was thinking the stock bag was too big as well.
      I'll check out your suggestion Thanks again, and I'll pay closer attention to
      my titles in future posts.

    Dinty, the OEM bag is designed to accommodate the handlebars from stop to stop.  It took me a bit to get used to it - I kept wanting to look down to see if the handlebars were going to hit the bag - nope.  It's not waterproof, though it comes with a waterproof cover.

    They show up here occasionally as well on ebay...

      Thanks for the response, I'll keep my eyes open but I'm curious how the community feels about the stock bag vs smaller non-OEM options as they all seemed to be in the same price range,I would like to hear more feedback. Does anyone use the OEM bag regularly or on trips? Thanks again Dinty from Boston

    I have the Triumph OEM Tank Bag, but only use it for "long" trips.

    In addition to using it for items that might be useful when stopping,
    when the Tank Bag can be quickly removed from the bike,
    ( such as Camera, Snacks, Map books First Aid Kit etc ),
    and as somewhere to put my Sat Nav when I remove it
    and want to take it with me, I find it useful on Hot trips
    to carry my "Camelback" pack of Iced water,
    as an alternative to wearing it on my back, with the pipe
    poking out through the gap between the two zippers.

    The sculpted shape of the Tank Bag means that handlebars
    can be turned to full lock in both directions without snagging.




    Cheers  :821:

       Thanks for the picture, beautiful bike !  I'm keeping my eyes open but going to focus
       on getting the protection bars we spoke about first. Started watching the install video
       this morning. On another subject Is there a trick to getting the rear top box to slide and connect
       into place? I'm wondering if the handle or key has something to do with it as I still haven't installed the
       lock the previous bike owner gave me. Thanks Coconut have a good one! Dinty

    After placing the Top Box into the correct position on the Sliding Carriage -
    pushed forwards against the stops, it locks into place when the carry handle
    is pushed fully down, until it lies flush with the surrounding panel.

    You won't be able to push the Handle fully down unless the lock is in place,
    and it is turned to the vertical / "Removal" position against its spring return.

    To fit the new Lock into your Top box, it must be orientated the correct way up.
    Insert the Key into it, and hold it so the key blade is Horizontal.

    Fold the handle down until it clicks into place at the Unlocked position.

    The key hole / slot is offset from the centre line of the lock,
    so start off by holding it so that the Key slot is Horizontal,
    with the slot below the horizontal centre line, as shown in this first Photo,
    with the slot lined up with the Locked padlock symbol :



    Turn the Lock a quarter turn Anti Clockwise,
    so the Key Slot now lines up with the Open Padlock symbol :



    Start to insert the Lock into the Top Box -
    You will need to depress the "7th Locking Wafer" that protrudes
    from the end of the lock, using a small screwdriver or similar tool,
    so that the lock can be inserted. 



    Push the lock all the way in to the Housing and it will Click into place.
    The click is the Locking Wafer engaging in a slot at the base of the Lock cylinder.



    You should now be able to turn the Key further Anti Clockwise against it's spring return,
    so the key is vertical and lines up with the "Carrying / Release" symbol.
    Holding the Key vertical against the spring, lined up with that symbol, push the Handle in
    so that it is flush with the Top Box Panel - it should click into place with a positive feel.

    While holding the handle down, allow the Key to return from it's spring pressure.
    Release the Handle then turn the Key 1/4 turn Clockwise to the Locked position,
    and physically check the Top Box is securely locked to the carriage before riding.

    Cheers  :821:

    Hi Dinty,

    I use the Touratech Ambato Pure, part number 6235802, I bought it for my first Trophy and now have it on my current trophy.  That is from 2014 to 2021 and about 130,000 miles and love it.

    I don't see it listed anywhere now though so not sure if you can get a new one.

    Mine is always fitted.  It has velcro on the top for the map pocket which I use on the back of laminated maps rather than the pocket which is a tad bulky.  There is also a small clear pocket on the top which is use full.  Inside there are pen loops and compartments, absolutely perfect for me.  In the summer I slip in a Camel Bladder to drink from.

    Hope you find what you are looking for, enjoy your Trophy I love mine and can't wait for our current Pandemic Lockdown to end.
    Love, light, and kindness,

    Dave
