    K75 & K100 Tank Bag Question

    Because the OEM tank bags for early bricks are now just a memory, can anyone recommend a good aftermarket bag. What are you guys and gals running with?

    There's an OEM bag on IBMWR.org in their marketplace.

    I have a marsee teardrop bag. While the attachment is kind of a bother compared to the OEM bag, it's been decent.

    I used and still have a Marsee expandable bag which worked well on my K75S. Lots of interior pockets and zippered compartments. I Bought a BMW bag and although correct for the bike it's not as convient as the Marsee. I'd like to sell so if you interested pm me. Great condition, reversable map pocket and rain cover included.

    I just received a magnetic Eclipse tank bag that I bought from the MOA Flea Market to put on my K75S. I'm taking the gas tank and the tank bag by a local RV paint & graphics shop today to see about coating the tank under the bag in clear plastic. I plan to ride with the tank on the bike most of the time and eventually the tank bag will rub the paint.

    The tank was off anyway because I had just replaced the coolant and then dug into the tank for the first time to replace the fuel filter, fuel pump screen, and fuel pump damper (with the alcohol-resistant version).

    The magnets won't stick to your K75S tank because it's aluminum.

    Yes, I am interested. You should have a PM from me by now. If not, PM me with your
    phone number and I will give you a call.

    I'm following this with interest since my Cortech finally gave it up. The base shredded from the wind and I got tired of fouling the horn button at a full left turn of the bars. Embarassing. I can't recommend that bag, though I've used it for four years.
    The only honest answer to your question is "It depends".
