    is this the correct tank bag base for 1994 K75

    Looking at this tank bag, I know the bags are the same with different hooks to mount on the tank sides.

    can anyone tell me if this is the correct bracket for my K75?

    Thanks!

    That LOOKS right for an early K (K75 & K100). Unzip the bag from the base. The base should be stamped with which bikes it's made for.

    hey thanks for the info lee.

    was able to pick up that tank bag and its a nice find.

    the guy who had it said there was no marking on the base, hence my question. i got it, unzipped the bag, and of course it says exactly which bikes it fits.

    the bag is in great shape. missing middle section which is minor bummer, but it seems fairly roomy even without it.

    appreciate the helpful reply and the correct ID on the strap.

    Mid-section

    I might have a middle section for you. I don't want to carry that much luggage. Got anything good to swap?

    ha hey thanks, ATM i'm afraid i don't have anything good to trade (aside from cash of course), assuming you are not interested in busted old fuel pumps which seem to be multiplying in my apartment.

    it does seem like an item which doesn't get a lot of use (looks very dorky) not sure even what i'm gonna be carrying in there either.

    still i'm interested to find one to have the option as i plan my first cross country trip.

    Just be aware the zippers may not match up.

    No problem, just a heads up beforehand.

    The red center goes with the bag that has the light grey top.






    They also had a earlier bag that was more of a blue grey and that center section was the same color as the top.

    I will have to keep an eye out for that blue-gey middle section for my tank-bag. And maybe one of those spiffy tank bras...

    I liked those tank covers. My wife modified them for the K75S so you could see more of the tank, but still protected the tank from our knees and tank bag straps.
