Cortech Ring Mount for Dryver Tank Bag
It works. But not super convenient.
I bought the Dryver tank bag almost unused from a friend, and ordered the mount for my FJR. It installed easily and does the job it's supposed to do, but there are a couple of fairly minor points to mention if anyone is considering this product.
First, getting the bag onto the ring after a gas stop by feel only is always kind of a pain. I've done it quite a few times so far, and every time I have to move the bag around and adjust and re-adjust it before the rings on the tank and bag line up. I'd suggest figuring out a better alignment guide. The second is less of a problem, but at least here in California, with the big awkward bellows-type "vapor recovery" sleeves on most gas nozzles here, the ring makes a fill up more challenging. More of a gas pump problem than a Cortech problem, though.
Overall, I like the combination of the ring and the bag; it's very easy to get the bag off and gas up, a little less so to get it back on, but still beats other tank bag styles I've used.

Hardware included is incorrect.
The Allen head screws provided did not fit into the tank ring holes. The screw heads were simply too wide. Had to find 7 appropriate screws at a local fastener shop. Once that was sorted, a five minute install.

VERY strong, fit perfectly, screws were exactly the correct length..
2 min install, 6 screws (torx) and it solved the tank bag problem for me. EZPZ.

Must Have for Install
This Cortech mount is a snap to install on the gas cap ring. It also includes the required allen wrenches to complete install.

The mount was a snap to install. It took about 10 minutes to install. The only thing I can complain about, and it's not really a complaint, is that when filling the fuel tank, the nozzle has to be manipulated to get seated so that the vapor capturing collar on the nozzle contacts the tank. Maybe after a few fillings, I'll get the hang of it.

The ring went right on without a problem . Holds the tank bag just off the paint . Getting one for another bike.

Easy installation and looks great!
This bag was easy to install on my BMW1200RT. I am anxious to see how it holds up on rides. it looks great on the bike. Size is small, but adequate. The rings line up well, but I do not get the feeling that it is locked! I am hoping I didn't miss anything.
Revzilla is the bomb when it comes to providing great products at good prices and fast delivery.

Great Product but Missed the Mark in one Key area
I have been using the Cortech Dryver tank bag for a couple of years now. It is probably the best tank bag I have had. It holds everything I need and is waterproof. I have been in all kind of rainy weather and it has never leaked.
So when I moved to a new bike I wanted to keep using my tank bag. So I bought the appropriate ring for my new bike. I installed it without a hitch.
I then tried to attach my tank bag to the ring and it wouldn't fit. I was baffled. I then tried the bag ring that came with my purchase on my Honda tank. It would not fit. In fact it would never fit. The tabs are of different alignments.
I can understand that the rings for the tank are different due to the number of screws on the gas cap but it makes no sense that the tabs to the bag are different. This will make it impossible to take the bag from the BMW to the Honda without changing the bag ring.
If they had made the bag ring interchangeable with the different tank rings it would have been a much better system.
I did recommend this product because of the quality and durability of the tank bag and you have to have this system to use it. They system itself due to the lack of interchangeability would have warranted a not recommend.
