Cortech Super 2.0 18-Liter Magnetic Tank Bag 4.6 5 52 52
Magnetic Tank Bag - Thumbs up! Using this bag on a Triumph Street Triple R. It's the only bag on my bike, a perfect size for my purposes. Comes with a visor sleeve to hold your clear or tinted lens - great when you have to switch between day/night mode. Lot's of extra pockets on the outside of the bag. Great clear map pocket on top, also use it to stick my EZ pass in there for toll roads. Bag doesn't budge at high speed (speeding not recommended, just sayin). Lastly, just be sure your tank surface and bag surface are free of any dirt before sticking the bag on to avoid tank scratches. Highly recommended. Enjoy your Ride. October 5, 2015
Love this bag! I ride a ZX-14 and we sport tour. This bag has been great! It allows me to carry everything I need plus has room for things you pick up along the way. September 28, 2015
Perfect size. Well designed. Quality materials The magnetic bag couldn't have been easier to set up. Stick it on, secure it with the safety strap, and go. Very strong magnets. The bag doesn't move when riding. And removal is just grab and go. And the tucked away backpack straps are a great feature. Perfect size for general items and expands if needed. The rigid panels for use when expanded are a nice feature. The size is just right and the expandability makes it even more versatile. Excellent fit and finish. Well thought out design with quality, durable materials. (Used on a 1985 Honda Sabre VF700S) September 11, 2015
Perfect for the FZ1 Overall this is a really nice bag, fits the FZ1 tank nicely. The one I got the map pocket was a bit cloudy in spots not perfectly clear, but that not a huge deal to me. I use it every time I ride and the magnets are rather strong. August 17, 2015
Just what I was looking for! I commute to work and was looking for something I could put n and take off quickly. This was it. The bag is just perfect for everything I need to carry for work like my lunch and iPad. Plus it expands perfectly for when I have to make a run to the store. Magnets are very strong and haven't scratched my tank. Looks big but it's just right on my 2002 zx6r. August 10, 2015
Goldilocks-sized = just right 2013 CBR500R I bought this for an upcoming cross-country trip and will add to this review after the trip, if necessary. I wasn't sure how large 18L would be in person, but it's not really too big--not big enough to hold another helmet, but big enough to be helpful. It's small enough that I can position it towards the front of my tank or the rear (see photos of it stuffed and expanded) and find a sweet-spot of comfort and visibility (photo of instrument panel). Visibility will vary based on height and body position. Mine does not hit the horn button when the bars are locked after parking--some on the CBR forum complained of this. When empty, the things grips the tank like a glove, but when stuffed to capacity, the magnets aren't as strong against the new leverage and rigidity. If your cockpit has poor wind protection, you'll want the version with straps. The wind protection on my bike is fine. Magnetic bags could easily walk away while you're gone for a couple of minutes. I'm considering a thin cable such as used to secure desktop computers and a suitcase padlock to secure it to the handlebars. July 27, 2015
Nice tank bag but maybe not for my bike Fit/finish are good. I like the expandability and the lens pouch is a nice touch. I had one issue but it may be due to my wide tank. I was going about 50 and the bag came off my tank. I pinned it between my knee and the tank. It happened twice. The second time I noticed it was catching air between the tank and the bag, peeling back the magnet. My son has had no problems with it on his Harley July 15, 2015
Fantastic Bag Full disclosure requires that I confess this is only the second tank bag I have ever used. My first bag, the Wolfman Rainier tank bag, I purchased in March of this year. That bag was a strap-on. I mention this as it plays a part in my review below. Also, I ride a 2015 Triumph Daytona 675R - so a supersport bike. I purchased this Cortech Super 2.0 18L tank bag due to the reviews and because it was a magnetic tank bag. Pros - Nice finish - Even when empty, maintains its shape and looks sporty - incudes a padded sleeve to hold a second faceshield (I always wear tinted, so nice that I can store a clear visor for night/rain/cloudy scenarios) - EASY-ON and EASY-OFF - I didn't think this would be that big a deal to me, but it's actually very nice (of course any magnetic tank bag would do the same - but still, it's a positive). To contrast, with my Wolfman Rainier I had to attach straps to my bike to which the strap-on bag would attach. When not using the tankbag I had to purchase a stretchy "x-strap" that would hold down the bike-attached straps or otherwise I would have to deal with them flapping about. I lost my "x-strap" recently and it was that which precipitated me purchasing this Cortech bag. I purchased a strap-on bag because I had been warned that a magnetic bag would greatly increase the risk of damage to my finish on my fuel tank. What I found instead was that the strap-on Wolfman Rainier messed up my finish due to the straps rubbing. :-( Only time will tell, but so far I am not seeing any reason to fear that this Cortech bag will scratch my finish. (but I would have said the same about the Wolfman only 3 days into owning it) - The built-in handle is very nice. The one on my Wolfman Rainier became very stretched out. This one is tight and it looks to me that the way it is made that it will stay tight. - The backpack feature was a must for me. The Wolfman Rainier backpack solution was a joke. They sell an extremely overpriced nylon strap solution and it was always slipping off my shoulders. Also, for multiple other reasons, the whole thing just didn't work really - it was clearly an afterthought solution. On the other hand, this Cortech bag is very nice. I was initially worried about the built-in straps. I worried that they would bunch up when tucked away, preventing good contact between magnets and fuel tank, and I also worried that they too would slip off my shoulders. While I think even Cortech would admit that this is not on par with top-level dedicated backpacks (in term of strap padding, and overall comfort, I have found this bag to be VERY GOOD when used as a backpack. None of my fears have been realized, and it has been a joy to move from tankbag to backpack and back again. - The expansion solution works very nice and it is tucked away when not needed (as compared to my Rainier where I was always grabbing the expansion zipper rather than the zipper to open the main compartment). Cons - The zippers have these little cubbyholes (not sure what the real term is) for when they are zipped up. This, I gather, is so that they do not flap about. But, those cubbyholes were designed too tightly and it takes too long to get the zipper tucked into them (and so I don't bother). Perhaps they will loosen up over time, but I suspect not. - The key solution located within the main compartment is, I think, useless. The plastic "hook" is difficult to use, and even if you attach your keys they simply flop around in the main compartment - just on a tether. The main compartment is not so large that I can imagine keys getting lost. Perhaps some will find value in it, I just think it needs to be rethought or removed. The two cons I raised are slightly irritating, but in no significant way do they detract from my enjoyment of this bag. Very pleased owner. July 3, 2015

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
A T: This is a perfect bag. When filling my gas tank - I just move it off to the side and fill. Then pop the unit back onto the metal gas tank I have. It does have a front strap that you can use - if you have doubts about it ever coming loose from the tank. Also it does have some side loops - but I've had no need to use them. Excellent bag - great buy for me. Sep 21, 2015

Mike H: I purchased the Cortech Super 2.0 tank bag for my V-Strom DL650A (2012). The bag is great, with the exception that the map pocket opens on the small end. They should have made it open on the larger end.

The V-Strom DL650A has a good bit of plastic covering the sides of the tank. This makes it difficult to get a good bond with the side flap magnets.

I always use the tether to keep the bag from sliding back towards the seat. Other than that, it appears to be steady for side to side movement.

alexander s: Because it has super powerful awesome magnetics that hold it to the tank! thats why! OH! oooOOOHHH and it has backpack straps! Fo shizzle mah Nizzle!!!! backpack that shizzzzz up! Aug 7, 2013
A shopper asked: I have a 2010 Kawasaki Voyager while the gas tank is metal, there is this plastic 3 or 4 inch wide strip down the middle that is not. so any magnets there would not hold. Would this stll work on my bike? or should I look at something else. not sure I want to go to strap as I've read reviews where they tend to shift. Thanks for any comments or suggestion, bikers or Revzilla!! Apr 21, 2014

William C: The magnets on the bottom of the bag are about 4.5 inches apart, so any sort of plastic strip less than 4.5 inches wide should be fine assuming it is exactly centered. There are more magnets on the flaps that fold out as well.

This bag is very nice. I bought two of them. I use it for school and fill it with textbooks fully expanded. Even in that situation is has minimal movement at the top (lots of weight high up). It has never moved or slipped at the base. No problems with marring the finish on the tank (rubberized base). Turns into a backpack which is awesome.

David R: I am sure that this bag will work. The magnets are on the flaps, so they will easily clear the plastic strip. I love this bag - it stays secure and holds more than you would think it would. I also like the back pack straps - I typically use just on nd throw the back over one shoulder. My only complaint would be the clear map holder - the opening to insert the paper is too narrow. I would recommend. Apr 21, 2014

A shopper asked: Is the clear window pouch for the map removable? I won't be needing a map for travelling and I was just thinking it might look a bit odd to have a clear pouch on it without anything in it.

Secondly, it's hard to tell how large is it from the pictures but could you fit a pair of running shoes and a set of spare clothes and probably a tumbler in it? I'm interested in carrying my gym outfit and clothes in it so preferably if everything can fit it that would be good. Thanks

Tyler E: Yes; the window map pouch is removable via a snap and a velcro strip. It's easily done in seconds. That said, it looks just fine with nothing in the map-pouch.

The bag expands quite a bit from what you see in the picture. You can get 6 bottles of beer in it or your shoes and other kit. Your choice. I have the magnetic version, which is excellent.

My only complaint with the product is the access to the map pouch is so narrow that the map pouch is virtually useless because you cannot get a map in without damaging the map.

Richard M: The map pouch is removable. I find that it is very useful, not for maps, but for my ez-pass transponder, my garage remote, etc. If I had a GPS, I might put it in there as well. I rarely put maps in it, but am always using it.

I think the bag would definitely be big enough for what you are looking to carry.

I am very happy with mine. It is pretty much always on my bike, whether I am in town running errands - or travelling longer distances.

John B: I cant say for sure whether its removable. im in afghanistan right now wlse I would check. It unsnaps and folds back so you can load it. Whether shoes will fit, depends on size. The bag can be unzipped and expanded. Don't see why you wouldn't fit running shoes, shorts, and a workout tee in it though. Mixer bottle too. It's the biggest magnet bag I've seen. Very nice and high quality too. Sep 20, 2013

peter r: Yes you can remove the window section, although I keep mine in place as it also has other pockets to put stuff, The size is good and you expand the size, you will easily fit shoes and spare clothes in it, no problem, but I don't know what a tumbler is? It also has straps to make it into a pack back that hide away. I have been very pleased with mine. Sep 20, 2013

Daniel T: The map section can be removed. It uses snaps and velcro. Your second question is harder. It will easily fit my shoes (size 10 mens). but how much in clothes will depend on bulk. One pair of jeans, one shirt, clean undies, use inside shoes for those.. probably. Sep 24, 2013

Randall I: I think it would be a tight fit. I have not tried my SCORPION XO 1100 but I it would be tough to get that much helmet in the bag even expanded. If it did fit it would be really uncomfortable to carry on your back. Althouigh my Scorpion seems large compared to say a Shoie. I really like this bag you can carry a ton of stuff in it especially expanded but I just don't know about a fullface helmet. Apr 11, 2014

A shopper asked: Would this fit well on a XV250 Virago, or would the 12L fit be better? Looking for something that won't block the gauges too much and still remain secure on a smaller tank. Yet hoping for something to use on larger bikes as well. Aug 12, 2013

Cameron M: I think it would fit. My friend uses it on his Shadow 750, which has the speedo on the tank itself, and it fits there.

WARNING - on a cruiser, the rain shield is useless AND almost certainly WILL FAIL. Because the tank is tilted upwards at the front, the wind just BLASTS into the bag . Since the rain cover only shock cords around the top 5 sides and doesn't seal or attach to the bag, it fills up with wind as soon as you ride. My buddy's exploded on him the first time he used it. We weren't going more than 110kph 120kph(74mph) either.

Also, I'll be posting a review soon, but on mine the snap that holds the map pocket down to the back of the bag broke in half. I'll probably try to replace it with Velcro, or get it warrantied maybe revzilla? (So everyone knows, I haven't contacted them about it yet, I'm sure they'll help me out!)

Those 2 issues aside, I do still really love this bag. Everything else about it is GREAT. If you ride a standard or sport bike, or a cruiser but you never ride in the rain, it's probably the best tank bag out there feature, size and design wise.

Rahul P: The flaps will curve downwards, but the bulk of the bag will probably fit decently nice over the tank. The benefit of the 18L is it has the larger footprint so you can fit shoes and such easily, and it can be collapsed to half height so it's not intrusive on daily rides. However, if you need the full 18L for a longer trip or whatever, you still have the flexibility to expand it and pack more gear in. Aug 12, 2013

Jason R: I can't speak as someone who has tried it on a Virago, but I am very confident it would fit. Mine fit my 09 ninja 250 perfect, but your Virago tank seems a wee-bit more narrow. Something as slim as a Suzuki DRZ will NOT work with this Tank Bag (it doesn't work with my poor Supermoto). Hope this helps, its a great bag! Aug 13, 2013

Daniel T: I'm unsure of the size of your tank. I ride a Kawa Concours, the tank is big and wide and the ride is upright. The bag stays secure with no issues. I would be that if your tank is as wide as the bag you will be okay that way. With regard to seeing instruments, I have no issue even when it is expanded. Aug 15, 2013

Daniel S: I have a Yamaha FZ1, which as tanks go, has a fairly large surface for the bag to mount. If I recall, the tank on your bike is more of a tear drop shape?? I would go smaller than the 18L, although it will work it may feel a bit bulky on your tank. Aug 12, 2013

A shopper asked: How is the quality of the magnets in this bag? I really like what I have read about it here, and the video reviews are great. However, I have read several complaints about the strength/quality of the magnets and some saying the bag slipped around and even fell into their lap because they were just not strong enough. Not many reviews address this directly.

Daniel S: Whoever claimed that it slipped into their lap must either be crazy or they ride something with a plastic tank cover??? BUELL or something that may not have a metal tank? I used mine on my 2014 FJR 1300 and on my FZ 1000 and packed full and completely expanded on both bikes it did not appear to move at all. This summer I completed a 2500 mile trip through the mountains, to the beach and through temperatures from 50 to 90 degrees with rain in all legs of the ride, cortech bag kept everything dry and I only used the rain cover one time. Magnets NEVER slipped! BUY IT!!! It is a great product and value. I have owned First Gear and other bags back in the 90's and early 2000 and I rank this one up there with some of the best I have had!

Ian W: I have been riding with this tank bag for more than 2 years now and I have not had a single issue with the strength of the magnets. I have ridden in all weather conditions and done long distance touring. The tank bag comes with me on all rides. Not once has it moved around on the tank or fallen off.
I love my Cortech bags.

Dustin G: The magnets on this bag are rock solid... UNLESS the bag is completely stretched to capacity, or you have loose items rolling around in the bag that are heavy. When it's stretched tight, or you have things rolling around in the bag, the momentum of accelerating will throw the bag or what's inside around, and that force will tear the magnets loose.

I rode from Seattle to Asheville, NC with this bag, and the only time I didn't trust it was when I had it full with my laptop, several books, and tons of food that stretched it to its limit. Even then, it is impressive how solidly the bag stays in place.

A shopper asked: The magnetic option looks very appealing. Would this bag work on a Suzuki GSXR600 2006/2007 tank? My concern is that a third of the tank on the front end is made of plastic. Would the magnets still work on this tank? Jan 26, 2014

Rahul P: My buddy has the same year bike, I should have tried my bag on his tank to see if it would work. Oh well..anyways, my other friend has a 600RR which has a full plastic tank cover. The way he got around this issue was to take the plastic bits off, install some magnets between the plastic and the tank, and reinstall the plastic. Worked like a charm! I would imagine this would be the worst case scenario for you, since only 1/3rd is plastic.

Oh yeah, and as a backup, it comes with a little leash to clip and tie the front end down to the bike. So even if the front magnets dont hold 100%, it does have the leash and rear magnets - all the magnets are extremely strong btw, I have to fight to pull my bag off each time!

Shaun F: Not familiar with your bike. I have mine on a 2004 FJR 1400 and it works great. There are several magnets under the bag itself. I believe that the bag would be just fine with the rear set of magnets engaging and side flap magnets taking the brunt of the work. Additionally, there is a security strap that wraps around the handle bars to provide more stability/hold on the front end of the bag. My opinion is you should buy it and try it out. If it doesn't work...return it! It's an awesome bag with tons of room. Jan 27, 2014

Terry W: You'll have to figure out where you'll place the bag and make sure all the magnets will be on steel. They feel no attraction to plastic or aluminum, so if the bag will overlap the plastic, you've got a problem.

My bag is primarily on my Vulcan with steel tank. But my GTS 1000 has a plastic cover over the tank so I bought magnets and fastened them inside the plastic where they will hold the bag. Not inexpensive and can be a pain to get them installed, but it's one possibility.

Scott T: There are two magnets in each of the bag's flip out flaps and several more on the underside of the bag. Also, I know BaronVonGrumble used a magnetic tank bag on his GSX-R 1000 during hia EuroTour and he didnt have any issues. And even if it doesn't work, Revzilla has an awesome return policy!

Mark R: I find that if you keep the bottom of the tank bag clean then your tank should be fine. If you fold up the magnetic flaps from the tank before removing the bag there is less chance of abrasion. That said, I would always make sure you have multiple coats of wax on the tank. Apr 7, 2015

Joseph M: The bottom of the bag is rubberized so it will stick to the tank better and won't srarch the tank. I take it on and off all the time and haven't seen any scratches or anything marking my tank. All in all its a grab tank bag and I would highly recommend it. Apr 7, 2015

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Gregory W: This bag is probably big enough size wise. I would say that if you are putting text books in it there could be a weight concern. The magnets may not hold true and could slide on your tank and scratch it up. You would probably be better off getting the one that straps down and would be more secure. Jun 27, 2014

David B: I don't think so Joseph. It's not square enough. It's a great bag, I'm very pleased with it. Very well made, the magnets are very strong. It has a soft case to store a extra visor, and it has tucked In shoulder straps, so it converts to a back pack. Jun 26, 2014
Reply to David Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Scott T: I wouldn't put that much weight in a tank bag. The magnets are strong for how small they are, but the textbooks will move around inside the bag and might have enough force to dislodge the magnets and make the bag come off mid-corner. Aug 18, 2014

A s: I have mine on my Super Tenere via the magnetic pads on the bottom and using the included safety strap that has a disconnect clip and wraps around the triple-clamp.

This way I still have easy access to my tack fill and the bag is still physically attached to the bike to keep it from walking away or falling off.

Chris L: I bought the magnetic type and it works great. If you have a steel tank the magnetic bag is the way to go. However if your tank is not steel, the straps just hook under the lip of the tank and tighten with fasteners. This is a great bag, you won't be disappointed. May 12, 2015
