Another tank bag question 😉
on: June 18, 2020, 04:37:28 PM
Afternoon friends, have any of you managed to fit a Givi ST602b using the Bf20 tank ring, it's just reading about such some bods say that it touches the handlebars.
Many thanks for any advice

Unless you have a very small bag, Givi doesn't work on the Crossrunner. As you say, the bag and the bars meet near the extremes of steering lock.

I far prefer the Givi system and that is what is fitted to my 1200 but I've had to go with SW-Motech on the Crossie, which works great, but I just prefer the Givi mounting system.
1 VFR simply isnt enough! Crossrunner for commuting, VFR1200F for summer fun.

I went for the SW Motech solution in the end; works brilliantly. No interference with the handlebars and it's nicely out of sight when riding (possibly not a good thing if you wanted to use a map pocket). I've got this one; https://www.sportsbikeshop.co.uk/motorcycle_parts/content_prod/438987?gclid=EAIaIQobChMIgozfi9-N6gIVle7tCh1upQdmEAQYASABEgIEnvD_BwE and it's big enough to hold a 500ml thermos flask, disclock, lunch and my mobile 'phone. Ideal really. Good quality too.
