Fitting second hand tank bag
« on: May 17, 2015, 10:28:46 am »
hmmm a small puzzle which I'm hoping I have solved but helpful comments gratefully received.
I have bought an almost new proper triumph tank bag of a nice bloke on E Bay. Sadly he hadn't realised the attachment for the clip at the front wasn't standard on the bike...
So I am thinking a good quality luggage strap  and fixing that beneath the petrol tank cover , if necessary then swapping the male ends to ensure it fits. Am considering g a clip with a combo lock on it to leave it a tad more secure for short service stops?
Any comments? What size screw will I need??
Thanks all

Hi Eftan,

I think you'll struggle to find just the Fitting Kit anywhere.
AFAIK the Tank Bags are made in China and it's one Fitting Kit per Tank Bag.

You could try contacting Triumph After Sales ( email : after.sales@triumph.co.uk )
to see if they can help - you never know, and it won't cost anything to ask !

Otherwise you'll have to make up your own strap,
and find a Plastic Buckle to match up with the one on the Tank Bag.

The Triumph fitting kit also includes a Retaining Plate that holds the strap firmly underneath the front of the Fuel Tank cover,
and which is attached to the underside of the cover with a small ( M4 ) Self Tapping screw.

If you don't have the instructions ( which describe this in more detail, including drawings ),
you can download them here : Triumph Instructions - The Part No. is  A9510095

Hope this helps  :028:

Thanks for that, I'm considering a large washer and a strong screw, but will try triumph local dealer first.

Oh Admin! Im sorry I have double posted this in two headings - more a symptom of wooly headedness rather than trying to bump my query. Feel free to delete the alternate line of enquiry.

Eftan,
I have an extra buckle, strap, retainer plate and screw.  PM me your address and I will send you just what you need.  I assume you may need the rubber pad the front foot of the tank pad sits on as well?  I think I have that as well, and will include.

You are a life saver - Now I need to figure out how to PM and all will be well!  Are you any where near lancashire to arrange a meet up if you fancy a ride out?
