Good for Travelling, not day trips I bought the Kreiga Tank Adapter to use with a Kreiga US-10 as a tank bag because I was tired of wearing a backpack during day trips. Pros: Solid Construction Easy Install Cons: Unless the pack you are using is pretty full (my US-10 as a tank bag holding wallet, phone charger, hat, puncture kit, and water bottle was not enough) you may have trouble with the bag staying secure on the tank. The straps that attach the bag to the tank pad are pretty long, and trying to cinch it down you will have a lot of excess. What happens with mine is the front strap will work itself loose as the bag slips backward during riding. Not a great feeling to look down in the middle of a twisty mountain section and see your tank bag falling off. This problem could be remedied if Kreiga switched the direction of 2 the alloy buckles so the openings faced the rear of the bike. Hard to explain but if you buy it you will see what I mean. TL:DR Works well if your bag is stuffed pretty full, otherwise has a tendency to work itself loose. August 3, 2015
Would be awesome...Just not for my bike.. So I need to start by saying all of my 'negatives' in this review are based solely on the fact that I'm running it on a BMW R1200GSW. The construction, functionality, etc. are all fantastic, and I would absolutely recommend this to anyone running a different bike/tank geometry. The install is easy enough. The only downfall to my mind is the sticky-backed velcro pads you have to stick on for the rear straps to mate to. I installed these low on the tank, covered by the forward edge of my seat. My mentality with this was that I didn't want hook-side velcro wearing on the inseam of my pants when I wasn't using the tank adapter and the velcro was exposed by being installed higher. Unfortunately, the unique geometry of this area of the 12GS's tank made the tape a losing system. I probably got a couple hundred miles before the pads started coming loose due to tape failure. At first I didn't really notice them as the culprit (which was daft, as I had looked at them and thought "no way that's going to hold up" when I installed them) and had thought the front straps had just loosened up a bit while riding. Ultimately, by the time I finished a 400-mile circuit, including about 40 miles of moderately bumpy offroad riding, both pads had separated from the tank completely. The bag was still sturdy enough to safely ride with, but I obviously abandoned the tank mount as soon as I got home from the trip. To be fair, my bag was fairly heavy, a US-10 carrying two full Nalgene water bottles at the start of the weekend, a DSLR camera, lens, a fairly weighty book, and a couple of batteries. Anyone familiar with the GS's gas tank will know what I'm talking about, but there just happens to be a sort of indent that creates an overhanging lip for the straps to run over, which I'm 100% confident was a contributing factor to their failure. Unfortunately, it's the only place I'm willing to glue velcro to my tank for something I won't be using full time. Function was awesome otherwise. Unclipping the bag to fuel up is a breeze. Getting the clips aligned again is a little more precise, but still far from difficult. The bag was very stable throughout my trip, even after the rear straps were doing nothing more than decorating. I'm not 100% sure about the quality of the tape used on the velcro, either. As I've said, I really stressed them in how I had them installed, but both pads still failed much more quickly than I would have expected. I've worked for years in high-end vehicle customization, so I was meticulous in my install of these; cleaning the area with denatured alcohol, lint-free cloth, warming the area with a heat gun, applying ample pressure for two minutes per side once I stuck them on. Frankly, wild overkill. The fact that the pads gave up so quickly makes me wonder if it was 100% the tank profile that hurt me, or if the tape may have contributed by being a bit below excellent.

Lets ya mix and match I've given up traditional tank bags for the Kriega line of waterproof, modular roll bags. I own multiple bikes and this adapter allows me to quickly move the 5L rollbag I use for day rides from one bike to the next. For $35 each I've got all my bikes covered. The four-strap mounting system works well, eliminating the center strap than can be annoying when moving around on the bike. The round click mounts are easier to use by a long shot than the Fastex-style buckles on traditional luggage; just push with one finger to release. They swivel to allow the straps to remain straight for any mounting application. You can attach just about any Kriega bag to this setup, but the 10L is probably about right for most usage. I highly recommend the whole Kriega line; it's streamlined, waterproof, mounts securely, and is very flexible. Speaking of their "dry pack" system, while I try to avoid rain, I was caught in an hour-long downpower recently and the 5L bag, mounted on the tail, was drenched from the spray off my rear tire. It didn't leak at all. June 15, 2015
Now I can use my awesome Kriega bags when riding 2-up For a couple years now, I have absolutely loved the quality and functionality of the Kriega US bags, which I have been using as tail bags on my 2010 Ducati Monster. The tank adapter lets me now use 2 US bags while I'm riding, which is nice. Also, probably the biggest value in this product for me is being able to use one of the US bags when I'm riding 2-up, without having to ask my passenger to sport it messenger style. The tank adapter installed very cleanly, although it took about a half an hour for me to find secure locations for the velcro rear attachments, which really do hold very securely if you take the time to find good spots that incorporate an additional amount of resistance by virtue of their location (pinched between the seat and the frame, for example.) The adapter snugs down very, very firmly when the straps are tightened. There is a lot of built in adjustability in the bag mounting, with multiple loops and the pad straps themselves allowing a significant amount of front to back flexibility in choosing where to mount the bag. I was easily able to find a spot that allowed me to see my instrumentation, even over the top of a fully stuffed US 20. Quick disconnects on all four corners are awesome - I pop open the front two and the loaded bag folds back onto the seat when I refuel. Overall, the fit and finish is exactly as all of the other Kriega products I have seen - absolutely stunning. In a world of cheaply made plastics and nylons dominating the motorcycle accessory world, the Kriega products are a refreshing blend of pleasing aesthetics along with durable and functional materials. If you have gotten the impression that I really like Kriega, you're right. May 1, 2015
Great product according to the instruction, you are supposed to put the adhesive Velcro under the seat but my bike didn't have enough room for it so I did it the opposite way, worked just fine. December 15, 2014
4 point mount = no flopping around I find that with other tank bags that use the steering stem as the front tie-down, the tank bag can end up flopping around / shifting, especially under load. This is not a problem with steel tanks as magnetic bags provide that extra stability needed, but since all the bikes now seem to have plastic tank covers you're relying only on the straps. With this adapter's 4 straps things are better secured. Other features I like: - That the quick releases for filling the tank are easy to use, and they are at all 4 corners of the pad, not just the rear. The front unclip is good for when the bag is mounted because you can then flip it back onto the seat. Previous bags I've had you could only unclip the back so you'd have to hold the bag up while you fill the tank. It's easier to unclip using the back 2 however, so when there is no bag mounted so I just use those. - The pad looks just fine so I just leave it on the bike all the time. - Nothing about the pad ("adapter"), straps, buckles looks or feels cheap. Feature I don't like: The straps with the aluminium hooks are kind of a pain, but I'm not sure how I'd do it differently. Maybe dedicated mount points? They do secure the US-10 that I have.

decent, but could be better It's a good product, but the velcro straps come off easily. I think some minor improvements to the product could make it a 5 star easily August 4, 2014
Revzilla's order management is really top notch. Products you order get there quick, I really like that. Revzilla's order management is really top notch. Products you order get there quick, I really like that. This product I ordered was for using it to hold a Kreiga US5 for my jacket liner since I ride everyday and sometimes the morning can be a little on the cold side, the evenings can be very hot. Install was easy, its secure so I don't worry about it. I'm also going to use it to secure a Kreiga US 20 I bought for a weekend road trip. The adaptor pops off by pressing 2 clips so you can get to the gas can easily. No need to undo the whole bag when refueling. So far I love it! May 12, 2014

Shamus H: Not sure about that bike - but I've got a BMW F700gs - on first test I thought that these would not work (as the padded part of the seat comes up very high on the tank) - however, the amount of flexibility you have in the install means you are sure to be able to tailor it to fit.

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.

Christopher 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!

Julian S: Hey David,

First of all, AWESOME bike! I'm no expert, but I really doubt you will have any trouble with the adapter. It pretty easy to install. You won't have any issues when filling up your tank, since you can remove it in a 1, 2, 3 (as we say in Mexico). Just make sure you can remove your sattle (which I think you can) to properly adjust the velcro and whatnot. I highly recommend this product. Enjoy!

P.S. Let me know if you have any other question.

A shopper asked: Can the tank Adaptor be used to place an R25 backpack ? Would this setup work? I want to combine having a backpack that can be used/placed as a tank bag. Not the other way around. A good pack for when dismounted from the bike and a quick access when on the bike. Thanks. Aug 10, 2015
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Julian S: First of all, I'm sure the US Tank adaptor would hold the R25 in place without a problem. It's pretty easy to install. However, I personally wouldn't use the R25 as a tank bag. As far as I know, the R25 is kinda big and it may get in the way and/or feel sort of akward when turning.
I did use the US 10 and it was just right. I've traveled about 500 miles four times this year and the only time I've had to adjust the US Tank adaptor has been when filling up the gas tank.
I do recommend the US Tank adaptor. Though I would highly recommend running a couple of tests with your R25 (fully loaded) on the tank and find out how it feels before purchasing it.
I hope you find this helpful!

S M: Kriega made there system incredibly versatile, so "Can the tank Adaptor be used to place an R25 backpack?" Yes. "Would this setup work?" I would not use it that way myself. The R25 bag would be very large to be in that location. I have used the 10l dry-pack with a 5l on top and found it to work well, but that is as big as I would go. I'm afraid even the 20l could be too cumbersome, and possibly interfere with steering near full lock. This would depend on the make/model of bike. Beyond just size, the stability of a pack that large could be compromised. The tank mount is only held by velcro on the seat side, and there is no lateral stability bracing. All that said, love Kriega bags! Aug 14, 2015

Chris D: While this is conceptually a possibility there are non of the required adapters for this - you would require 2 of the metal buckles to even approach this. I have the r25 and the tank, in addition to the us20 + us10 + us5 - and I don't have nay adapters that would correctly create this attachment.
Even if i did on my ninja 650, this would be an unwieldy arrangement - the r25 however is an excellent bag even for longer trips.
This adapter jut provides latch points for the smaller bags us5 or us10 - again technically the us 20 fits, but it didn't provide me enough clearance to ride safely.

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
