Anyone got any Givi tank bags with the tanklock ?
Like the look of the T491, Givi say not compatible with the Versys due to the narrow bars.
The bag doesn't look any bigger than the Bags Connection City bag ?
Anyone tried ?!
I can tell you I have the GIVI T489 on my 2011 Versys. Its a BIG BAG. I really only bought it for the times that I go on long distance trips or camping. Even with the bag pushed as far backward (towards me) as possible, it still doesn't allow the bars to fully lock left or right. I was a little disappointed.
However, at the time I got it (which wasn't long ago) they didn't have the T491, or at least wasn't isn't clearly marked as a tanklock.
In terms of the system, the tanklock system is great. Install is super super super easy. 3 screws and your done. The locking mechanism is really great - super easy to lock the bag and take it off. My bag is good, lots of pockets.
All in all I am very impressed. The reason I picked GIVI over SWM was
#1) I have lots of other GIVI gear and its been perfect (no flaws and nothing broke even after dropping it right onto some seriously big/sharp rocks).
#2) The ring on the tank doesn't seem as "odd" as the SWM. The givi ring is thinner and black to match the tank, so when the bag is off, it looks close to stock.
LMK if you have other questions. Also these are great for throwing an EZ Pass on, as they almost all have a clear pocket on top that the magnetic detector can penetrate.
