Cortech Super 2.0 18-Liter Magnetic Tank Bag 4.5 5 20 20
Get this instead of the 12L bag! This bag is the same exact size as the 12L bag, with the option to unzip and expand to the larger 18L. Fits on my tank perfectly and the magnets firmly secure it. Comes with a strap to attach it to the handlebar for security while riding. I used it the first time "just in case". The bag didn't move at all, so I don't use the strap anymore. When I get to my destination, I can just grab the handle and go...the bag slides right off the tank. I haven't tried the hidden backpack straps yet, but it looks like they'll work just fine.

Excellent quality, easy to use. plenty of storage, easy on/off, high quality materials and workmanship. Just the right size for my Z1000. March 15, 2014
Great for easy to go The bag could use just a little larger side pocket, but other than that it is a great bag. I use it daily for my work clothes. I still have saddle bags to carry my rain gear and gym clothes. February 21, 2014
Great bag! Let me be clear -- I am reviewing the magnetic version of the Cortech Super 2.0 18l bag. I have no reservations about recommending this bag. Expanded to 18l it holds a ton of stuff, and it grabs the tank securely every time, with no movement at any speed. If you aren't hauling a lot of stuff around, leave it zipped to the 12l size to save some space. The map window is fairly useless, as the entry opening is far too small to get a decent sized map in, but other than that, it performs great. The same cannot be said for the strap version, which I also have (da** BMW plastic tank covers#. No matter how tight you pull the straps, the bag flops around even with a light load, but the same can be said about every other strap bag I've tried #a bunch). If you have a metal tank and don't need a map window, grab this bag. Otherwise, pass. November 14, 2013
Lots of features/great versatility I bought this to use on my 85 Magna V30, but was really happy to find that it also fits on my 03 Honda Rebel--no need to use those tiny saddlebags anymore. Loads of space inside. Really like the handle to carry it when off the bike. Rain cover seems to do its job. Very happy with my choice in buying this--would recommend it to anyone with a magnetic tank. October 21, 2013
Can't go wrong with Cortech LOVE this thing. Has plenty of room, but doesn't cover my instrument cluster or any controls. I bought the magnetic one and the bag is plenty secure and aerodynamic. Only went on one 3 hour ride with it so far, but it was all highway (70-90mph) and it didnt move an inch. The included shield carrier is AMAZING and fits right into the corner of the bag to maximize the left over room, which is about 17.5/18 liters, so its very convenient and doesnt take up space. Plenty of pockets to fit stuff, small and big. EASILY removable for gas fill-ups and easily replacable. Strap that attaches it to your handlebars is a nice security-touch. I truely love this thing, along with the many great other Cortech products. September 22, 2013
Do not purchase Dont waste your 100 bucks. Not worth that much. Maybe 35 or 40 bucks tops. First of all, the "bag" needs a LOT of improvement for that a 100 dollar bucks. I received the strap mounted coretech today and was hoping for more room, more points to secure to bike, any type of remotely rigid contact point in order to lock to bike and much more. The "base mat" had two cheap plastic contact buckles at top near handle bars and one at base of tank by the seat. The "bag" slides all over the place and if you put anything heavy in it, like an 8x11 folder or a BOOK ( which BARELY fits in this bag) the weight of one book will cause it to list to one side of your tank or the other. (Im a premed biochem student and have tons of books. ONE book will barely fit and thats it. ) HUUUUGE let down. The base mat is terribly ill fitting, bunches at top on both sides and readily flares outward and upward like a flying nun hat. It looks rediculous. The elastic is thin and two of them were frayed at the edges right out of the box. ( those will last long, NOT) over all, its not much better than a fancy walmart bag with three straps and lots of zippers. The instructions were fairly inconclusive and leaves you guessing a little as to proper instal at handle bars and edge of the tank. ( this "bag" was installed on my 2007 CBR 1000. There are a few decent suggestions within the reviews to improve the bag. Those are obviously NOT being implemented so its a waste of time to suggest anything here other than DO NOT BUY this bag unless youre moving small items like sock bundles, a wallet, two pairs of sunglasses, pair of underwear and a t shirt. HOWEVER, it does make a decent tank pillow to lean on with exception to the bulky buckle that ends up right at the front of your crotch so make sure you add some sort of padding of your own if you do waste your money on this bag. Id recommend buying a half decent back pack from anywhere, strap it to your bike or use a Velcro system that allows you to buy and use the rare earth magnets and make your own tank bag. It will be custom, 1/3 the cost and probably give you triple the room. See pics below. It looks like you know what & dorky. September 12, 2013
Map users should not buy this I use a GPS about 75% of the time, but I still like to bring a paper map with me. This tank bag does not work for maps. The top clear window is plenty large, but the opening tapers down to a narrow slot. Other than that, it's a nice bag, but that flaw makes it useless for most of my travel. September 2, 2013

Daniel O: Only option I found. Did not want all the GPS windows and such. Mar 21, 2014

Francisco Ramon H: Practical tankbag, the magnética option and the inner space, closed the deal Oct 2, 2013
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.

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

David B: Yes the map pocket is held on with Velcro. As far as stuffing it with shoes, etc., if u expand it, it should hold everything. I think it's a great product, and has shoulder straps tucked in so it converts to a backpack. Sep 20, 2013

fred b: You could put gym shoes in tankbag. Only problem I have is that IT wil not fit the tank on my Triumph Explorer 1200. The wings with the magnets are not wide enough for my tank shape. 125 dollar mishap. Sep 22, 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

David B: Sorry, no it wont fit a full face. The opening isn't large enough, but it will fit a lot of stuff. Very well made. It has built in shoulder straps, so you can remove it and carry it as a back pack Apr 12, 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

Marek K: Yes it's a tear drop shape. 9.5L tank (vs your 18L) Aug 12, 2013

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!
