Nice setup! I think that will be my end-state as well.

Loading

Hi to all,

Just picked up an '09 690 R and am a little concerned about overloading the subframe. I am 300 lb and like to ride hard over rough ground. I am wondering if anyone has any advice about how much you could load a GL Great Basin and still be safe in terms of mounting.

I've worked about 1/2 way through this thread, and I noticed that for a rear rack they recommend no more than 5 kg. The GL bags mount further forward, so that should help, but with my weight bouncing on the seat plus a bunch of tools and gear in the GL bag I'm still a bit worried.

Any suggestions on ways to beef up the fuel tank/subframe without going to external side racks? Thx

Got my Overlander 30's on...

They fit well and I am very happy with the quality.

The bags are off in under a minute and over my shoulder...

Sorry about the crappy cell phone pics...

get a Bash plate with two side tool boxs
you can keep the LBS low and off of you and the rear of the bike.

I like these, how much crap can you stuff in them, would they be suitable for use for a couple of days of ride/camping?

Thanks for the info. Google didn't give me the info. Got a link?

So it sounds like what you're saying is that the mounts are the issue, not the actual strength of the tank itself. Am I right?

overlander 60 -itsa so big mister

Is it just me or does the overlander 60 luggage look a bit on the huge side. Kinda turns the 690 into a a GS 1200 no?
Anyone got the outside dimentions when packed?

I love Kriega stuff so I'm hoping it doesn't turn the bike into a boat.

The lowers get worn, causing loose movement which breaks thd upper bolts.

I made my Lower Aluminum Bushings (stock uppers & bolts) back in 2008 & hadn't broke any more components since.

I gave Partmaker my specs & permission to make & sell these lower alum bushings

He now makes Delrin lowers.

Kiffer, the stock tank is fine - the bushings are the weak link

Be super careful with the four 8mm alum threaded inserts in the tank for the rear rack

I use generous amounts of anti-seize on all bolts that go into the tank. Airbox too.
