A good way to get more use out of your Kriega bag My feeling is that if a product has a cult-like following, there's probably something to it. So when I was looking for a tank bag I went with this (plus a US20). First off, I'm glad I didn't go with a magnetic bag. This thing is secure and durable and I don't worry about it scratching my paint. It also looks good as a tank bib when I leave it on the bike and take my bag inside. But taking the bag off twice a day is a bit of a pain. Now I leave the straps hanging off the bib so I can easily snap the bag on without fiddling with loops and hooks. I'm sure there's an easier way to deal with this, but it's what I'm doing now. Installing it wasn't mindlessly easy, but now that it's on it doesn't matter. The velcro thing that comes in the kit wasn't going to work on my cruiser, so I used the sub-frame loops that came with my bag to attach the bottom end of this to the bike and it has worked well. Using a Kriega tank bag isn't the cheapest, but it works well and should last just about forever. This will work on a cruiser, but if your speedo is on the tank you might consider using a US10 or 5 rather than the 20. March 19, 2014
Nice option for holding Kriega bags on tank I'm a fan of the Kriega US series dry bags (own a US20, two US10s, and a US5) and wanted to be able to carry a US10 on the tank of my Kawi Versys (I had previously only used the US20 and US10s as tailbags on a CBR1000RR). The Tank Adaptor works pretty well for this overall. The only thing I don't like about it is the difficulty of working the clips that secure the back of the Adaptor. I can't unclip them at all while wearing gloves. I would have preferred the regular clips like the ones used to secure the Alloy Hook Straps to the bag. December 4, 2013
Does what it’s supposed to do I have this on my CB500X, it attached to the front forks which is excellent but the way my seat lays on the frame it is simply Velcroed to the bottom of the tank. I would have rather bolted it in but there really is no other way to hold it on. Other than that its awesome, never had a problem. Would buy again and would recommend. November 12, 2013
Easy install, looks good, durable Bought this for the Kriega US-20 for three reasons: - My legs are too short to swing over a rear tail-bag - Couldn't find a good place to strap down the rear bag on the Ninja 300. This front adapter has met my expectations - it was extremely easy to install, and fits well on my bike. It grips, doesn't move around, and placing and removing the US-20 on it takes only a few seconds. This is a key feature for me because I commute and run errands on my bike. Although I'm sure I just need to play around with it to optimize the settings, so far riding with a full US-20 has gotten in the way of my steering a little bit. Not in a way that is dangerous, but rather when I am pushing my bike into the garage and can't crank the steering to maneuver into a spot. But again, I think this is easily fixed by just adjusting how the bag is tied down. In sum, I am very happy with this product. I forget that the US-20 is anchored right in front of me because the tank adapter holds the bag down really well and doesn't interfere with my -actual- riding. It was extremely easy to install, and I will likely use it for the US-10 and put the US-20 in the back when I end up going on road trips in the spring. November 11, 2013
If you have the rest of the gear, why not this one too Its a tank adaptor, not much more to say about it. I personally choose to install back to front on my 2012 ninja 650 so I wouldn't have to use the velcro sticks directly on the bike. The build is pretty nice - its got a great soft, rubbery surface touching the tank - and loops to connect the kriega US(XX) packs. September 11, 2013
Difficulties installing Doesn't really work out of the box on a 2005 BMW Dakar. It's nothing a few zip ties won't fix. April 15, 2013
Great alternative to packing all the weight on the tail. Bought this with the Kriega US30 combo dry pack and attached the US10 dry pack to this adapter. Super easy to install and the rubberized bottom will not scratch the paint. There was enough adjustability in the straps so the adapter cleared my gas filler cap area so I didn't have to unbuckle the strap for each fill up. March 19, 2013
Great option to have for the Kriega dry packs I use this on a moster796 and 1098 where both bikes don't work with magnetic tank bags. So this option of being able to attach a 20liter dry pack is a great option to have. It's also not that difficult to remove when you need to refuel. I do wish that the velcro attachments that you're supposed to slide under the seat were a little longer though. I have to tie them to the frame for some bikes. I feel the price for this attachement is high, but rated it overall good because I'm a big fan of Kriega gear December 13, 2012

A shopper asked: I understand that the adaptor will fit any bike but I have a monster 696 2013 and I am wondering will this cover the gas cap? I don't see a quick release for the adaptor so if it does how much of a pain will it be to remove to fill up?

Thank you for your help.

Suzanne M S: Yes the adapter will cover your gas cap, however, there are quick release latches on the straps that are facing the rider (near the seat). The latches can be a little tricky with gloves on, but you get used to them. Once your in the habit, it's five seconds to flip the adapter forward onto the bars (front strap still attached) to get to your gas cap. I recommend a us10 - anything larger seems bulky to me. Kriega makes some of the best gear around in my opinion, and this is no exception. Oct 26, 2013

Joseph L: Hey Keith!

The cover ties on to whatever you can manage up front, but towards the rear, they give you these two Velcro squares that the rear straps qre suppose to stick to after you adhere the squares to your bike. I hid mine underneath my seat, but those two straps are really easy to adjust so you can just loosen them up at the pump and synch them down when you're ready to roll.

I really love the system and definitely worth the money

andrew r: The adapter that connects to my bike (k1600) has disconnects on one end so not an issue of the cover is over gas cap; keep in mind there is a good bit of distance adjustment available and may not need to use the disconnects as you may be able to position and not cover the fuel fill.

jean-philippe l: Hey Keith, yes it will cover the gas cap but no worries, there is 2 quick disconnect clips on the saddle side of the tank adapter that also acts as pivots for a better fit. Qick tip, make sure that your tank is clean before install so it won't get scratched. Enjoy!

LARRY M: Yes, the Tank Adaptor will cover the gas cap of your bike. There are two "Push In" quick release clips that are positioned close to your seat. If you zoom into the photos - there are at the top of the tank protector on the displayed bike. Oct 26, 2013

Bombman0513: Its pretty much universal fit. It straps either to the radiator bracket or around the frame or fork brackets. The straps that go under the seat attach via velcro. It should work on a Harley, but I think bags look better on cruisers than tank bags. Aug 27, 2012

RevZilla: Yes, the Kriega US Tank Adaptor can be mounted to Harley and Cruiser style bikes.

However, it is not recommend for modified bikes with smaller tanks, extended forks, and alterered rakes (Chopper and Bobber style bikes).

A shopper asked: I like to use a Kriega US 10 as a tank bag on my R1200RT. With that said, can this base plate be used and latched onto the OEM tank railing? Any tips are appreciated. May 8, 2013

RevZilla: The Kriega tank adapter can be installed on mostly every bike on the market. Lift up your seat, install the Velcro straps, then run the front end straps under the tank to install on your railing. Re-install your seat after you have the adapter positioned where you would like it and you're done! May 13, 2013
