that looks like a nice bag, but do you find it a bit small?
I wish I could find a pic of the ducati oem bag installed, i imagine it looks gargantuan.

Another solid tank bag would be the Cortech 12L 2.0 bag. I've seen it on the HM and it looks perfect but it cost 85.00 but it fits well.

tRC - that bag looks good on there. Another consideration is the Kriega which can double as a tail bag and is modular to fit to other bags of theirs for longer trips. I have one for the 848 and it is very well made.

Tank Bag

Anyone have the OEM Ducati tank bag on a Hyper 821? I got one for Christmas and installed it on my '14 Hyper SP. Everything is good after installation except that the instructions for refueling say "disengage the rear fasteners and lift the bag until the filler cap can be easily reached". If you disengage the rear fasteners and tilt the bag forward there is not enough room to remove the gas cap and refuel. The only way mine works is to disengage the front fasteners and tilt the tank bag back onto the seat to uncover the gas cap and refuel. Anyone notice this also or did I put something on backwards???

I think that looks right. I always have to tilt mine backward to fuel and not forward. On mine the buckles at the front of base/cover piece make contact with the tripple clamp at full turn. Do you have the same thing happening?

I never really understood the point of a tank bag. I mean yeah its great for extra storage and being able to have a road map in your face, but the inconvenience especially for Hypers with small tanks means you are always removing it to fuel up more often. Why don't you guys take advantage of the rear half of the Hypers seat and strap a storage bag on it? Saves all the intrusions up front on your tank and the bike controls. Just my opinion.

Well I would certainly never buy this one again. The first one tore at one of the buckles on the base piece. It was replaced under warrantee, but seems to fit differently now. Could be a brain fart on my part.

Also, the bag tended to stretch out and then the mounting buckles ran out of adjustment on the straps. That means I could not get it down tight and it flopped around. I expect the same from the replacement.

I have SW Motech panniers and they are working out great.
