Does anyone know if this luggage makes it hard to get to the gas cap? I tried it at the dealers, but it was hard to tell as I couldn't really install it, and of course the bag was empty.
It would be annoying to have to loosen the bag every time you gassed up.
Thanks.

It does depend on how you mount it (forward), or if you have something else on the back to attach it to - like for me I now have Rally-Raid luggage racks (this results in the bags being attached forward - but I'm still to test this theory). I had previously found that with the tent strapped to the coyote I had to loosen it off to fill up, meaning it takes a little longer to get going again and is very annoying if the group your riding with all have aftermarket long range tanks and don't stop to wait - this happened to me previously.
But overall, no a major task as is fairly quick to loosen and tighten - no need to take off completely.

Hope this helps.

My current state of disrepair :/





Intake rocker arm needle bearing let go. Thankfully all needle's recovered without having to split the case. Unfortunatelly though, the rocker arm took out the cam shaft.



Little blurry, but you can see the damage beside the cam, the lobe looks fairly similar, like it got hammered. Swapping the timing chain just in case.. KTM has the timing chain back ordered until Manuary, but my parts guy knows a guy who knows a guy thats not Dutch, so the part will be in tomorow.

This pic is with Mojave but I have Coyote too. Mounted on SW Mototech rack I am able to remove gas cap without loosening bag straps.

I hope somebody as super smart as LukasM can help me out here.

KTM Part # 75038050044 Oil cooler set. Will it work on my Enduro (I dont see why not) more importantly, anybody know the heat loss involved and the extra oil capacity it would deliver?

How many miles were on your bike when the bearing let go?

Sorry to see, but I guess it could have been worse...

Cheers,

Giant Loop Mojavi Fitment

Here are several photos of how I fitted mine allowing refueling without removing the Mojavi.

DSCN1094

You may not be able to mount yours as I did if you do not have an anchor point like my rear hand rails.

Here is another photo of how it fits ready to ride with the tail bag installed.

DSCN0478

If you have the grab handles you can use the rear anchor strap as I did securing it through the front mounting point for the handles. I cut off the large buckle (on the rear mounting strap) and retained the feed through loop so that I could tighten the strap and get it to run through the recess for the gas cap while staying out of the way of removing or installing the cap. I see that you also have an Acerbis cap which creates a better recess for burying the strap out of the way of the cap. In my case I simply have to use the quick release on my KTM tail bag and I have access to the gas cap. I also cut down my no slop cap venting valve to clear the top of the tail bag.

Absent the grab handles maybe you can lengthen the rear strap and still mount it the same as mine by securing the longer strap to your rear rack.

If this will work for you then you will use up a bit of the rear seat where the tool bag portion of the Mojavi sits. I have not found this to be a problem in riding as I seldom get that far back on the seat and do not carry passengers.

One other view of my setup.

DSCN0474

A final point. In order to keep the bag from abrading the side panels use some Moleskin on the side of the pockets facing the panels. Works great and costs very little. You can also use Moleskin under the tool bag where it rides on your seat if you mount it like mine.

Hope this helps.

Cheers

Giant Loop tank bag with RR tanks

Anyone have a pic of a GL tank bag fitted with the RR tanks.

Whoops

Southerngintlemen,

My post should have been addressed to Folkinride's question as you have solved the problem.

Cheers,

Thanks Xico, as I suspected, looks a little tricky to get to the gas caps. i assume you just push the bag to the side to fuel up.

He probably wants to know how many kilometres you have on that motor :-)

Not a problem at all. Quick and easy, unless you are racing against the clock. If at the pump, just make sure you point the nozzle forward, or it'll splash back out the tank.
