Tiger 800 Tank Bags

The Tiger 800 Tank Bag thread.

Anyone know if the tanks on all Tiger 800 models are the same?

Thoughts, reviews, and PICs!

My dealer is recommending a Givi tanklock bag, specifically this one:



The full group of tanklock bags listed here: http://www.giviusa.com/givi-products...anklock-system

Advantages are ease of connection/removal, and no contact with paint to scratch it up.

Disadvantages are high cost, and no contact with paint to add character by scratching it up.

I'm a little more interested in the larger sizes, but not carried regularly locally, and I'm not sure if it might get too big and interfere with riding.

Anyone have experience with these?

I use a Wolfman Rainier on my 14 800 XC. A little big but doesn't cause a problem for me, even standing. Here are a couple of pictures of my bike with the Wolfman.

The metal part of the tank is the same so is the filler cap assembly.
I use a SW Motech (Bags Connection) City Bag on mine.

Mine killed the paint because the plastic wall stiffeners rolled outside the neoprene footprint.

Might as well of attacked the paint with a dull hacksaw.

That said, nice bag.

GL Bag



I use the Giant Loop Tank Bag with their Tail Pack, quick to put on & off and very waterproof.

I have both the Givi 307 and 308 for my 2012 XC. Both are great! I had the 308 on first and it was fine with my Zumo 550 mounted off to the left. When I mounted my new Zumo 590LM centered on the bar risers it was hard to see it behind the bag. Mounting it any higher would encroach on the view of the instrument panel. The slightly shorter 307 works perfectly.

The quick on and off feature can't be beat! The 308 may rub the paint slightly but does little or no damage. After a 4100 mi trip through Mexico, on and off road, it only left a slightly dull spot which buffed out in seconds.
Like most tank bags, it needs the rain cover in wetter conditions. The plus is, unlike some bags, the rain cover is supplied with the Givis.

Bottom line, I'm not looking for a better bag any time soon.

I've always had good experience with Cortec tank bags. When I got the Tiger my trusty magnetic rectangular Mini wouldn't fit well on the humped tank so I bought the magnetic Super 2.0 12 liter. The profile fits well on the tank and the stiff sides hold the shape well. It rides well forward and doesn't intrude on my riding space.

Good info, I will be sure to keep an eye out for that, don't want to ruin the paint. I might have to get more cab skin and put it on my tank to protect it.

My thoughts are cut the bottom of the stiffener to match the profile of the tank, along with putting something on tank.

Part of the problem may be that I carry a particular black scary thing in the mesh pouch at all times, its 18 ounces get transferred to the sidewalls.

I have 2 of those bags, the 20 liter and the little 4 liter one. The bigger one is too big for what I wanted for every day use, but I kept it-might come in handy for trips. The small one is great for everyday use-room for papers, pressure gauge, phone charger, spare gloves, garage remote, etc. The quick-lock setup works great and there is no contact with the paint.

I will take a closer look at the bag this weekend. I too carry a particular black scary thing but normally have it sitting on the bottom of the tank bag facing forward and under a spare pare of gloves.

Maybe I should just go back to an M4gery and a sling?

There's a lot to be said for the OEM triumph bag.

I have it on my 2011 XC and it's perfect. No issues.
