    Trophy Tank Bag FITTING KIT

    Edited 02/08/20 to reflect a price increase due to the Retaining Plate
    now being Out-Sourced and Laser Cut from Stainless Steel.



    After a number of Forum Members bought a "Previously Owned" Tank Bag,
    and then found that it had not been supplied with the Fitting Kit, which is not available
    to purchase anywhere as a separate kit, I decided to make some !

    I have sourced the exact Buckle used, so it will connect perfectly to the one that is
    permanently attached to the Tank Bag, bought some of the right size webbing and elastic,
    some self adhesive backed rubber pads - cut to shape, and outsourced manufacture
    of the Retaining Plate - Laser cut from Stainless Steel as above !

    In the Kit there is :
    • The Male buckle assembly with webbing and elastic strap sewn on
    • A Spare Female buckle should the one on the Tank Bag ever get damaged
    • Stainless Steel Retaining Plate
    • Self Adhesive Rubber Pad
    • Cleaning Wipe ( for proper adhesion of the rubber pad )
    • Retaining Screw & Washer



    I have spent a fair amount of time getting these together - for the benefit of Forum Members
    who find themselves in the predicament of having a Tank Bag they can't fit to their Trophy !

    I am not making a profit selling these - the cost covers the material costs,
    packaging, UK Postage, and towards the cost of cutting blades etc.

    I will sell a maximum of ONE of these to a Forum Member that NEEDS ( not wants ) one,
    on the understanding that it is for their own personal use on their Trophy,
    and not to be sold on for profit !

    The cost is just £12.00 including UK Postage ( Royal Mail 2nd Class post ).

    If you need one, send me a Private Message and I will send you payment details.

    I can also send these overseas, for whatever the additional shipping cost is -
    Send me a Private Message to enquire about this.

    Fitting Instructions are attached below  :028:

    Finally, an acknowledgment to Forum Member Big D who was kind enough
    to help with a drawing for manufacture of the Retaining Plate  :028:

    Hi folks,


    I can't say thank you enough to Coconut for the fixing kit for the tank bag. It's absolutely brilliant  - I managed to fit the bag in 15 minutes using the instructions and the kit is exactly as one would expect from the factory!

    Also, it was brilliantly packaged and well...just superb.

    I have to say the Trophy is already my perfect bike but this forum definitely enhances the experience 1000% :-)

    Thank you again  :046:

    Hi Coconut,

    I see this is an old thread, but here in the far distant and strange land of Australia, Iíve unwittingly fallen into this same trap. This is particularly distressing for me given the original seems to have been discontinued. You can imagine my joy at having scored on of these bags at all.

    Long story short is there any way an Australian mug like me could lay their hands on one of these fine kits?

    Cheers, Keith.
