Has anyone found a good fitting tank bag for the highly sloped tank of the 900?  Magnetic prefered but straps will do.  Thanks

I've been using this for years on my T800 / T900 with the suitable fuel cap ring

Clips on and off with ease and not too big

Either looks good and does the job, but the GIVI is better  :001: :001: :001: :492:

Yep. The harness and tank bag for the 800 was great but doesn't fit the 900... any pics of the Givi bag on the 900?

Thanks for the info on the GIVI and SW Motech tank bags.  I'll have to look into supply on this side of "da' pond".  I heard from one Tiger 900 owner that said the tank bags make getting to the ignition key difficult as the bag hangs over forward from the mounting ring.  Do you guys find this to be true as well?  :084:

yip - solution for me was to position the lock mechanism a little bit more forward on the bag than would typically be the case - i.e. the bag does not protrude as far forward

on a side note, in South Africa getting to the key with difficulty is actually a bonus, as we've had instances of passers-by snatching the key out of the ignition while you are stationary at a traffic light thus leaving you stranded
