Honda OEM Tank Bag (small)

Not a big fan of tank bags but needed something handy like many people for small items, wallets etc. Really like the look of the Givi XS320 and the SW-Motech range but they would be wasted on me. I was about to buy the small handlebar bag from the guys at Rugged Roads before I spotted the OEM Honda bag for the AT on the site as well. A little dear for the size it but a nice compact bag with a decent fitting system. It has very short front straps which attach to clips attached to the front plastic shield and magnet flaps at the back. The clips are designed to stay in place on their straps so you can easily clip/unclip the bag on the bike.

It only looks to be 2-3 ltrs in size, you could probably get 35mm camera and a spare lens in but I am sure there are better bags out there with more protection for that sort of thing. Good for wallets, go pro bits, bits and bobs, spare gloves and the like. It has a top phone holder which is large enough for the biggest smartphone, a small external compartment handy for change and a power cable entry at the front. It has a rain cover which is see through at the top so your phone is not obscured. It comes with two protective sheets for the tank as well. So if you want a small bag and don't mind paying a little premium for the Honda brand this is a nice one to have. (that's a 1ltr bottle)

www.ruggedroads.co.uk They have a few options, the Givi one is much cheaper but I liked the look of the Honda bag. The Honda part number is 08L77-MJP-G51. You get a piece of paper pointing you to the Honda site for fitment documentation like all of their other accessories. You have to chosse 2017 model to get the doc for this. While there I noticed new optional wide footpegs which a lot of people like.

Do you have bar risers? I've read the risers will hit the red locking release?

Thanks

I like the fact that I don't have to have any tie downs. It's a little annoying having to buy a tank ring adapter but it is a one time thing. If you can live with the fact you will have a little flange around your tank cap, I think it's the way to go.

I have the Givi Extreme 15 ltr - made for the AT so it fits well and there is no problem with turning etc. The bag is extremely well made, comes with a wet cover and there is lots of room for 'stuff' to fit nicely. A great bag. It fits easily onto the tank with a quick release ring making it very practical and not need to run ties to make it stay on.

I just got the Givi XS320 and wondered why they put a front tie down strap on it. I don't even think it is long enough to go around the steering stem. Any thoughts about just cutting it off? Seems to defeat the quick release feature of tanklock. Thanks,

The strap is just long enough to fit around the steering stem, but what a pain. What I do is just wrap it around the handlebar clamps. Easy to do and gives you a little peace of mind that it won't go flying off if the tanklock fails. Also, it just flips up and lays above the handlebars when you gas up. No need to unhook the strap.
