Mini Tank bag that works great
« on: June 03, 2015, 11:27:59 pm »
I was looking for a tank bag that was smaller than the factory bag. I also confirmed with Givi that the Tank Lock system does not work on the Trophy because the gas cap is slightly recessed in the tank trim panel. I was not sure what to get so I just decided to order the Nelson Rigg CL 2010-ST because it looked to be about the right fit and was under $40 on Amazon. It comes with a Rain Cover and shoulder strap (that I will never use)

I posted the full installation in the "How To" section.

You’ll notice that I installed the bag backward. I put the narrow end forward with the handle by the seat. This keeps the bag away from handlebars but will still hit slightly. I can fit my cold weather gloves and phone and a few other things easily inside.

Great improvisation and certainly cheaper than the OEM product.

Have you considered cutting off the handle with a razor blade-- or is it useful in some way?

I never considered that. The handle is nice to grab onto when I am getting gas. It make the tank bag easy to pull up and forward out of the way. It does not interfere with anything while riding either.

The tank bag is the last thing I add to my bike when all the other boxes are full.

Do you strip all the bags off and then start with the tank bag?  Adding the saddlebags and trunk only when necessary?

Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.
