Givi 3D604 Tanklock Tankbag
Another great bag from the masters!
Bought this bag for my ongoing around the US trip...5000 miles and 3 weeks later it still looks like new despite thunderstorms of Oklahoma, hails of Colorado, bleaching sun of Utah and everything in between!
Installation is a breeze (3 minutes) and it is a super neat and useful product. Having said that here are the few Pros/Cons:
Pros: great, clean design. Easy installation, Givi quality. Semi-Hardsided case provides some level of security. No magnets or straps to deal with, Feels super high quality and long lasting.
Cons: givi tends to overdo the style sometimes, I wish they went a bit less style and a bit more functionality and added some inside and outside compartments that I could use without having to always open the clamshell. Items like visor cleaning fluid and many many more. Also, inside having some compartments would allow me to have it more organized. Also, an electrical port opening would be useful, especially for a bag costing over $100. Finally, it is not water proof at all, and the cover that comes with it is a bit too snug, but totally works. Would love to have an integrated cover, that doesn't take space in the bag itself. Oh one more thing...its ajustable in terms of positioning on the tank, but I would love to have more holes to move the bag more forward on my FZ1

Great tankbag solution.
The Tanklock is a great solution for tankbags. I like the ability to quickly remove or install my bag without having to mess with straps or scratch paint with a magnetic bag. The only problem I've had is the bag coming loose from the ring while riding. However, I think I may have bumped the unlock switch.
The 3D604 bag is the perfect size for what I wanted. I am able to fit my rain jacket, the rain cover for the bag, two bottles of water, a can of chain wax, a disk lock, pressure gauge, and sunglasses. The bag is well made and it looks like it will hold up well to years of use.
On the FZ07, the bag looks a little large, but is hardly noticable when riding. The tablet/phone pocket is impossible to see without fully taking your eyes of the road and looilking down, but I rarely need to look at it while riding.

Tank bags can be just that or luggage that stuff simply gets lost in. I chose to downsize and use the tank bag for stuff I want to tote into restaurants, pavilions at rest areas, and to keep my wallet and valuables secure when going in the store for fuel stops. The 3d604 actually holds a lot more than I expected, it is tall for its size. On my BMW RT the switchgear just barely touch at full lock, which was important to me in a new bag. I like the more rigid structure of this, it looks good on the bike. More of a finished look over the "canvas" look of other bags. One necessary detail of a tank bag, for me, is a clear pocket for a route sheet. Not necessarily a map, but what routes I want to follow. This one has the removable clear pocket and it is an ideal size. The clear phone pocket built into the lid I may experiment with, if for no other reason than the phone will run cooler there than buried in the bag. Would take this again over the higher priced units of other brands.

Givi 3D604 Tanklock Tankbag
Love this product, very easy to put on the bike, and very easy to take off. My Problem is: the Texas heat. When my phone is in place or my tab both over heat because the sun is right on them. Have not figured out a way to fix this problem, outside of just putting the phone or tab in the bag were I can not see the maps. Great in cold weather, just not the heat..

good fit, well made
This tankbag has good fit and finish. It replaced the factory tankbag on my RTLC. It's easier to do most everything from refuel to access contents. The bag is generally water-resistent and contents stay dry without it but the rain cover seals everything out. The map window on top could be a little bigger, can't quite fit an 8 1/2 X 11 sheet in it without folding but other than that, it works great

What a great product. Well made and easy to use!
Takes 3 minutes to fit the bracket on the top of the tank. Instant on and off. Keep your shaving kit, gps, wallet, registration, in the tank bag. Off the bike grab the bag with your important things and walk into the motel, or home, or restaurant. The way it sits on the bracket it never touches the tank or rattles. Everyone should have this on their motorcycle.

Works on 2013 Triumph Explorer and 2013 Suzuki Gladius
I was looking for a way to hold wallet, gloves, cell phone and a water bottle and came up with this 3D604 as a solution.
I'm 5'9" and my seat is in the lowest position on the 2013 Triumph Explorer XC I ride daily to work. In the OEM mounting location, this tank bag blocked the lower digits of my tach gauge and bottom of my display. Thankfully the mounting ring on the tank bag allows for 1 position of movement back towards the rider, which was just enough to gain back the visibility I need. If I slouch on the bike, the tank bag covers the gauges, but at least now my riding position/ergonomics is improved by having to sit upright in order to see over the bag and view the gauges.
On the flip side, this is an excellent bag for my wife's 2013 Suzuki SFV 650 Gladius. In the adjusted mounting position, this 3D604 fits on my wife's bike perfectly (she has a givi tanklock mount too). Doesn't block her view (she's 5'8") and in the adjusted position, actually gives her the option to lean against the bag a bit/feel more tucked into the bike.
I gave it 4/5 stars as I was kind of let down to see there's no electronics hole to feed 12v into the bag without keeping a zipper open. All in all though, good bang for the buck.
