EARLIER TANK REVIEWS

Was a bit fiddly to fit to my bike, MV Agusta Brutale 675. But once on it's all good. Used it with a US20, like all Kriega products I've got the quality of design and build is very high.

Had a long haul trip up to bonnie Scotland for some work garb and thought it may be a more interesting trip taken on the Honda SP1. Aside from nearly being crippled on a sports bike the tankbag attachment was golden all the way. Very smart quick release and bombproof as usual. Top stuff Kriega keep it coming and I'll keep buying.

Tankbag for GS
I used this with a US 5 on my GS. Fits great. You require the longer loops rather than the velcro attachment as the GS doesn't really have a suitable place for those. Keri supplied them FOC as I asked when I placed the order. The only thing that I would add would be some small loos to hold the free ends of the rear loops to stop them flapping about. I didn't want to trim them too short, but some small loops would keep them under control. Also the small bobbles on the underside to begin to shed. Otherwise great product. Would still recommend highly.

a tab to long
fitted the tank to my bmw f650gs twin and it was a fraction to long. but made it fit. its a little snug near the were the keys fit inn and tight near the seat but as I said it fits and i'm happy with that. so now I've got my us-5 on my bike so I can put some of my crap in it ...wish it was adjustable in the length... but that's what reviews are for

But I'm a Kriega fan
I've got a 70l tailback and a 25l backpack already.
The tank pack fitted easily to my XJ6 DivF. Most of the time I only need 30l on the tail and 20l on tank.
If like me you you are a little unhappy strapping 3 bags to your small seat then I think the tank bag is simple, safe solution. Don't think too hard. Just buy Kriega.
Ps. Looking forward to buying the 'Urban' bag. I need to look smart when at work and the backpack is a bit too scruffy.

Does what it says

Most useful Kriega product!
I bought this product to use my existing US10 as a tank bag for on the move trip essentials, whilst my main belongings were stored in my US30 & 20 packs strapped to my seat. It was easy to attach to my Speed Triple around the headstock and using the sticky Velcro pads to the tank itself. My US10 bag was securely connected to the webbing using its quick-release buckles into the webbing of the converter pad. Fuelling was easy using the quick-release straps to move the bag to one side and clip in again then tightening. Upon removal the fuel tank was blemish free after a 2000 mile trip to Scotland. Well done.

Works for me
The "Tank" is a simple harness attaching to the front and rear of the tank. The rear is attached by velcro as supplied, and seems secure. The Kriega system is very flexible so you could rig up straps if your bike has attachment points.

Kriega quality again.
I already have a number of Kriega items (R35, R20,US-10, Kube pocket and Kube 1) so have a lot of faith in the quality and functionality of their products. Tank converter ordered Thursday afternoon and arrived Friday afternoon, speedy to say the least. The item itself meets the usual Kriega standards for quality and in this case great value. Easy to fit on my 2012 Fireblade (plastic tank) and now provides me with the option of carrying my dry pack on the front (which I prefer) as opposed to the rear. Cannot recommend highly enough and I've just discovered my local gear retailer (sportsbikeshop) is now stocking Kriega gear. Win win.

As with all Kriega gear it is top quality and does what it says on the label. Didn't even mark my tank. Found it does fit better back to front due to the tank being small.

I have several pieces of Kriega products, all are top quality and good value.

Top quality product
I have bought US 10 and US 20min the past and they were good quality this is the same!!
It is also value for money when you consider the price of a bagster tank cover every time you change the bike!! first class!!

Great for the price
This is a little fiddly to fit at first but once you work it out and affix the velcro in the best place for your own bike its a breeze. Best bit is the quick release fasteners at the back of the tank allowing access to the filler cap for that all important government tax; petrol. Easier than my last tank bag system. Would be good with front quick release fasteners too then it could be removed when parking up. Kriega - If you make a map holder to fit this that holds the A5 size Motorcycle Atlas, I would be first in line to buy it. I could imagine its design and it could also fit on top of the US5 Dry bag as well, making it indispensable. Please make one. Way cheaper than MV Agusta original kit. Thanks, Kenneth.

Bit of a pig to fit to my 660 Tenere but once on works well.!

Simple & Stylish
This is a great product, works well, though I find it a bit slow to set up if using it around town; as I Can't leave the straps and joiners on as they get stolen.
It would be great to see a evolution to include the hook system for quicker mounting.
Kriega response: Oli, you can indeed use the Hook system with the tank. Hook straps are included with the bags or come as an accessory/spare if you have an older pack. Thanks Chris

Simple and Effective.
Purchased this to go along with my 5 ltr Drybag. It works really well and fits on to my Triumph Explorer but I do use two sets of straps rather than the velcro set up. Good value, looks good and for me works a treat.

Tank and US-20 on a Monster S4
Not keen on the Velcro stickers and will modify it for straps to suit my Monster. It could be wider as well to cover the under-side zip of the US-20 bag from scratching the fuel tank. I will use some rubber sheet underneath. I also had to buy a set of hook straps as I have the older US-20.
Kriega reply: The US20 will fit TANK with the older 25mm straps (No need to upgrade to hooks). We have always supplied a set of loop straps (FOC) if the velcro is unsuitable. 99% of bikes use the velcro

F800GS used with US-10
Took a bit of fiddling to fit to my F800GS but looks really neat now. Used a US-10 with it and was great for our recent trip around Europe. Just needs a map pocket now.

Quality product to expand the use of Tail pack
I bought the 'Tank' as I already had a US10 and my magnetic bags wouldn't work with the plastic cover on my ZX12R. The Velcro fastenings work well and fitting the harness is very easy.
The US10 makes a good place to put stuff when day to day riding and for longer trips it makes a waterproof pack to put passport, documents, camera etc.

Well designed and looks fantastic. Made some minor adjustments to the straps to allow to fit my 2009 BMW F800GS tank like a dream. Bought this with a US-10 and have also added a US-5. Great gear.
