    Baglux Bagster Tank Cover

    I have just bought a new baglux bagster tank cover and it hasn't come with any sort of fitting instructions / tips, As daft as this question might seem is there anything i need to do or you would recommend before i fit it.
    Obviously i have made sure the tank is clean no grit, dirt, grease. Things like that . Looks strait forward regard fitting with just 4 straps to fit your opinions would be appreciated
    cheers

    lenny its quite easy.

    remove seat

    the 2 screws in the black plastic surround on each side forward of handle bars... remove.  its to create a bit of flex.
    VERY CAREFULLY pull the fairing away from tank at the pointy. bits towards rear of tank with your finger tips till it pops from the rubber plug on each side. did I say carefully...

    fit tank cover..

    at front of tank near handlebars you Will see the black plastic surround comes onto fuel tank.  the tank cover needs to slide under the black plastic on either side.  its a pain cause there is not a lot of material to took under on either side.
    tighten front strap forward of tank.
    the very back strap is a pain to thread through frame at rear of tank so tape a long tie rap or strong piece of wire to strap and fish through and fasten tightly.

    onto sides

    fish the clips behind the plastic silver side covers but don't tighten. do same on both sides so clips that hold onto tank are in place.  refit seat.  then tighten straps.  the straps should be over top of ends of seat.

    all lined up...?? just push the fairing back into its rubber plugs and put front screws back in.

    if tank cover stands proud of filler hole, place a couple of heavy books onto of fuel filler.  should sit flat after a day.

    These look rather good and I'm very tempted myself. My only worry is water / detergent being trapped under the cover for a long time after washing up / rain. It seems a fairly complex procedure to install so I'm assuming the cover stays on during washing up? What's your experience / opinion on this?

    Never had a Bagalux - but two freinds had them and didn't check underneath very often. When they did they found fungus like matter caused by the combination of damp and heat . It came off easy enough but not a pleasant sight. :008: I like a shiny (black) tank on display.

    never had a problem with mine.  they stay on when being washed.
    the install on the crossrunner is a bit of a pain but that's down to the bike.  the vtec took 2 mins to fit it.

    no scratches from jackets and when my mate threw his beemer down road, tank bag stayed on.

    baglux did some Crystal covers.  if they do a black Crystal one Joe you may like it as they are shiny.  personally a tank cover is first thing I fit as todays paints are very thin.

    I just gave the tank 3 coats of mer polish before fitting.

    We have never had any problems with these covers. Having said that like Shaunomercy we always ensured that the tank had a good coat of a quality polish before fitting
