Givi tank bag
on: April 06, 2013, 10:22:45 AM
Just fitted the Givi XS308 tank bag, birthday present from kids, on the Givi web site the CR doesn't have a tank lock bag listed but thought I'd take a chance & it fits perfect, just had to adjust towards seat slightly, just thought I'd share incase anyone else is in the market

Let me know how you get on with it. I've tried two different bags tank bags on mine, and slow riding round town, it didn't take too much turn angle to foul the controls. I was sounding the horn, turning indicators on/off, switching hazard lights on every time I turned!! :151:
Moving the bag back stopped that but then it was too far back to see my map, phone etc.
Really need a high volume tank bag for an upcoming trip, so if anybody has any recommendations please let me know.

The larger bags are almost out of the question. I had a medium sized Dririder from my old bike that won't go at all - the magnetic 'wings' sit on the plastic bits either side of the fuel tank, and the forward magnets sit on the (non-metallic) fuel filler. In short, it wasn't going to stay on!

I'm using a smaller Oxford bag now. Positioning it just right is fairly easy. I usually rely on voice commands from my GPS through a bluetooth headset anyway, but I can still see the screen by glancing straight down at it.

Thanks Gtb.
Just to make sure, I've found this on ebay:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/GIVI-XS308-XSTREAM-RANGE-TANKLOCK-ENDURO-TANK-BUM-BAG-MOTORCYCLE-BIKE-LUGGAGE-/400460361549#vi-content

Is this the one you have? If so, did it come with everything you need to fit it?

This part of the description implies I need to buy a fitting kit separately(?)

"Please Note:- To fit this tank bag to you motorcycle a fitting plate is needed. Please check if your motorcycle is compatible by using the guide below. 



The following fitting kits are available... "


But this bit says the fitting system is included:

"Givi Tanklock Technology (with fitting system included) "


I may be having a senior moment, but just thought I'd check with somebody who has one!

Thanks
Slidy
