Moto-sac......

.........Is there any treatment available?



But seriously.

I'm looking for a small tank bag for my TTR250 and came across this one.

http://www.xtremperformance.com/prod...universal.html

Less than half the price of anything else.

Anyone had any experience with it?

The zip looks like it might be a bit tricky to open.

Mmmmm, I've just checked the measurements again and I see it's too wide (20cm) for the Yamaha. Looks like the Wolfman Enduro is the only candidate.

Don't overlook these shaped magnetic ones Woopwoop, you put a little slit in the flap and remove the magnets, I've even cut the flaps off. There's plenty of fixing points they don't take much to secure. The flap on the bottom end can even slip under the seat and get locked in there. The top point usually just takes something either under the tank screw cap or pulled over the front of the tank down onto the frame. I'm on my third one this shape, similair brands are third great and hoodlum.

I pulled the side flaps down and under the seat on the WR, I think it has a little Velcro strap going under, but I did just cable tie another one under the seat.




Flaps under seat again, think I ran cable tie to join those ones. Think I had the top one with a candle tie under fuel cap on the DRZ, oh I liked that bike.



On a trip on the 690 once I attached a clear map holder on top, Woopwoop style

I don't want to derail Woopwoops Sac thread, as I know he needs help with his Sac, but tell us more

I always reckon that after the first 4 or 5 posts, it's open slather, so derail away.

As to your other comment, thanks for your concern but it's all fixed.

I went into the chemist and asked the young woman if they had talcum powder.

She said "Certainly sir, walk this way".

I said "Luv, if I could walk that way, I wouldn't need the talcum powder!"

Hey Dave that tank bag photo looks like an exact replica of one I picked up from Motoraad Garage in WA except for the badge on the side. Their other products for sale look like replicas of other bags like Kriega that are available too.

I fit that tank bag in the photo to my Berg ok which I would think would have to be thinner than the XT in the tank area. It holds a fair bit and is waterproof, but the zipper can be a bit of a pain in the arse sometimes to raise the flap out of the way enough to open it.

I had one of those from Motorrad Garage (no longer available) and it does look very similar, but I think this one is a bit bigger.

this all seems to come down to, if your planning on riding with your sac full or empty! Weight distribution is paramount.
