Givi Tanklock ring on Crossrunner
« on: May 21, 2019, 10:14:43 AM »
Looking on the Givi website it seems that there is no tankring recomended for the 2015 on Crossrunner.
The BF20 version is recomended for the vfr, the BF3 for most other Honda's.
Has anyone tried to fit one? Will it fit or can it be made to fit?
I have a couple of bags I use, would be handy to swap easily.
Thanks in advance.

Ah .... right should have looked more closely...
There is a thread in Accessories....
Looks like BF20 tank ring fits.
The problem is that the handlebars hit the larger bags. I have a small bag so might be ok.

Small Givi bags tend to be ok, you'll just have to try and see.

I came across this problem too and ended up buying SW-Motech. Their tanklock-type ring drops the attachment point down the tank towards the rider and so prevents fouling. Like this.
1 VFR simply isnt enough! Crossrunner for commuting, VFR1200F for summer fun.

Ah yes, I see what you mean. I have a smallish Givi and a large Kappa version.
I'll experiment and check it out on a test ride.
I wonder what the chances are of Givi coming up with a design that mimics the SW motech one?
They bought out a metal bracket adapter to add a tank ring to the f800 range.
I went in the Givi direction initially because I liked the design of their bags.
The tank on the Cross runner is steel so I could use one of my mag-mount bags. I've acquired several in 4 decades of riding bikes.  :002:
