Trophy tank bag

I didn't get those suppled when I bought my Tank Bag, but are they the Blanking Pieces
that are normally fiitted in the Fuel Tank Centre Panel, which have to be removed to fit the Tank Bag ?

( As per the instructions ) .....

Strange that they came WITH the bag. You have to remove them from the bike in order to install it. Mine didn't come with the bag, but I store the plugs I removed in the small storage compartment under the seat.

I'm wondering if this was someone else's return, and now they can't find their Blanking Plugs !   :012:

Okay thanks, that's that one solved. I collected the bike from the dealer with the tank bag already installed. The blanking plugs were in a placcy bag in the tank bag, hence my confusion.

I've just got this bag, not fitted it yet but I gather that once I do, I'll always have a flappy bit of webbing/plastic buckle at the front of the tank and two holes at the rear?

If you only use a tank bag to help carry extra items when on say a tour/weekend away, do you remove/re fit the metal plate, rubber bungs etc every time??

Like the BMW RT etc, I knew that this were a bespoke design/fitment, I just didn't think that it would leave the bike looking quite like this,......or am I missing something/assuming wrongly??

The plastic buckle at the front doesn't flap about at all, while the rubber bungs pop in and out in a jiffy. I keep my bungs in place in the winter or when wet, and remove in the summer when I'm more likely to be riding longer distance with a pillion and need the extra luggage space. It's not a problem. Honest.  :002:
