Gabriel C:I have it on my 2012 Monster 796 but I had to have the nylon straps modified. I took the straps to a tailor and had them re-cut custom for my bike (see attached pic), cost 20 bucks and a 30 minutes drive to drop them off to have them done, now it fits perfectly on the bike. You can see a picture of my modified straps in my product review. Bit of a pain when you need to fill up gas as you have to undo at least two quick-disconnects to access the fill hole but I've never felt it was problematic.
I also read about someone gluing 1.5" x 1/8" Neodymium Magnets discs under the plastic tank and that would permit to mount the bag strapless, I purchased a set of magnets but haven't had the time to install them.Sep 3, 2013
JOHN H:This depends if your tank is made of a magnetic material, if it is, the magnets will hold down the bag to 150 mph+. I have a 2012 vmax and I love this bag. You do have the option of strapping it down but that's a pain. A few words of caution, these magnets are very strong and will take stray pieces of metal that can scratch your tank if you don't check them occasionally.Aug 30, 2013
Jason B asked:Hi guys i own Benelli TNT R160... have a plastic tank. I like the look of the tank bag and the dimensions are right. Looking at my bike I'm wondering about the straps and how people have installed the front straps. I take it the straps have to join up to the other side and dont loop back onto themselves? Would i have to go under the tank?
David O:it comes with an array of straps that can connect back on themselves, strap around the tank, or just about whatever you can imagine. I loop the side straps down around my engine guards and back up to the same side.Aug 22, 2014
A shopper asked:I have a MacBook Pro that I am trying to find a bag for. I would rather have a tail bag, but it seems like this bag would work for both as long as I use the provided straps. Please let me know.
FinnFan:I can't directly attest to that, but I wouldn't count on using the sleeve. The pocket is too large compared to the size of the pack and doesn't give much, making insertion really tough unless the bag is empty. There's no real padding anyway, so I'd just use whatever padded sleeve you already have. Depending on the contours of your tank, you may not have a nice flat area to place the laptop, so keep that in mind too.Jul 18, 2012
Dan B asked:Hi I've got a 2008 Concours 14 and Ill be camping from this bike for a month long bike trip next summer. Trying to do it 2-up. I've got the huge Corbin trunk already and I'm looking for the biggest tank bag I can find. It would be a bonus if I could fit my 7" GPS into it for viewing (old man eyes,,I need the 7" screen). Considering this bag or the TourMaster Elite Tri Bag ? Any comments or suggestions would be appreciated DanNov 22, 2013
Ian F:I also have a 2008 Concours 14. I'm not sure if the map window will be large enough for a 7" gps. I'm happy with it for carrying size and the ability to use it as a backpack when doing a hike or something. I don't have any experience with the Tourmaster bag.Nov 25, 2013
RevZilla:The Alpinestars Tech Aero Tank Bag will not fit a full face helmet. It does have magnets at its base, that will mount to your CBR 250 as long as your tank is metal. If there are any nonmetal covers on the tank, they will have to be removed in order for the magnets to stick to the tank. A second tank bag option is the Firstgear Silverstone II Tank Bag. It will hold a full size helmet and does have the magnetic base to stick on your tank.Nov 13, 2012
RevZilla:We tested the Alpinestars Tech Aero Tank Bag on a 2011 GS (not GSA) and found it to be too large. The slope of the tank makes it awkward for a large tank bag, so we would recommend sticking with something with a lower profile. We would suggest the Chase Harper Compact 750 tank bag as an alternative as it has a smaller footprint and will be less cumbersome.May 1, 2012
A shopper asked:Hi can you suggest a tank bag that will fit and suit the style of an Aprilia Dorsoduro 750 Factory? The riding position is very far forward and the tank very small. Thanks for your help.Sep 20, 2011
AliB:This bag would work on your Aprilia Dorsoduro 750, as long as you don't over stuff it. Another tankbag to consider is the Givi T489 Tankbag, which also has a low profile and would suit the Aprilia style. In addition, with your forward riding position and small tank, you might find that a tail pack such as the Cortech Dryver Tail Bag works better.Oct 7, 2011
