Need a tank bag on the 1190 that clears the bars

I've tried a few tank bags recently that don't clear the handlebars properly at full lock. The 1190's filler seems too close to the bars. Has anyone got or tried anything other than the following tank bags that work OK?

Bags Connection City
Bags Connection Engage
Bags Connection GS

I prefer a tank lock system like Bags Connection EVO or Givi Tanklock but this isn't crucial.

Is there dust in your airbox?

My Enduristan works fairly well. clears everything but the tank shape causes the bottom to bulge in a bit reducing capacity.

I 2nd the wolfman. Mine fits well. Anyone tried any of the Giant Loop tank bags on the 1190? Or saddle bags for that matter?

Made for your bike by the people that make your bike. Just put one on my 990. They took it off an 1190 in the show room to sell to me.

Bags Connection City works fine and fits the tank shape nicely. You just have to make sure when you first install it that you mount the tank connecting plate as far forward as it will go. The bars will then clear the bag.

I did this and found they still hit the bag at full lock. Nothing too bad but I'm a fussy f###er!

The only thing that touches the bars with the City bag if mounted as far back as possible is the rubber handle as it hangs down by the bars. I just zip tied it up an inch or so and have 5mm clearance on both sides on full lock. Maybe you have rotated your bars back?

I guess it would depend on the adjustment of your bars?? mine are pretty far forward.

I will 3rd the Wolfman. It sits far enough back and works well.

I used a Giant Loop Coyote Saddlebag along with a 50L dry bag on a recent camping trip. I have had the Coyote for awhile on various bikes. I think I may purchase the bigger Great Basin.

The new Wolfman Blackhawk is a Med/Small sized tank bag. It fits like a charm, looks good on the bike and does not get in the way when standing on the pegs like many other bags.

I have one of these on my 1190 Adventure R. It works great. No interference with the handlebars.

Giant Loop Diablo works great. I am considering moving up to the taller Fandango. Excellent build quality.
