View Full Version : Tank bag harness

Put a Givi Tank bag harness on the Capo today. Is one I have used on various bikes as it allows me to clip a magnetic tank bag on a non metallic tank.
Looks OK and works fine.

Good to see a few more options that work for our bikes. I like the fact that the filler cap isn't obscured (unlike my option).

Just been on the Givi site and it's not listed. Any idea on the model number?

Not sure if exactly the same model still available..but this is virtually the same.


Also on Amazon

Another similar option from Bagster.

Universal Fitting Support for Tank Bags Bagster Easy Trail Black ( Ref: 1583UU (black)).

I got home and I have not yet installed (I have a Bagster bag from my previous bike).
It allows you to mount a Bagster bag with this universal harness (version EASY TRAIL: Ref: 1583UU (black)).


I bought it before I knew that already existed reference Bagster Tank cover, which covers the entire tank.

All in this Onlineīs shop (and in your Bagsterīs dealers):

Black and white (Bagster Ref: 1640a):


Black (Bagster Ref: 1640u):

How was it fitting your Bagster tank cover?
I have some trouble figuring out the side attachments, one small hook and a loop, the loop is ok, but where does the small metal hook go?
Previous bike had a bagster and the hooks for attaching around plastic parts where plastic, not metal so I'm not sure what they were thinking in France...

too much

This is the FAMSA tank bag specific for the Caponord 1200, paid around $250 shipped from the UK.

It comes with a tank cover that covers only the black part and it offers enough space for a day trip or if I extend it for a quick run to the grocery store :) Installs in 5 minutes.

I dif not like it initially, it made me feel cramped being bigger than the one I used on my Bandit, but I got used to it, plus the zippers started working smoothly after a few days. Considering the price of the OEM one (that looks very similar) I think this was a decent deal.

When fitting my tank cover the straps go to the forward of the two positions and go around the fame. The rear positions have the hook on and hook around the tank panel. No problems to date.
