Kit Contents
This kit contains an XL tank bag, a rear strap and a rain cover.
Improper loading of cargo or installation of accessories can affect motorcycle stability and handling, which could result in death or serious injury. (00121a)
  • Keep cargo weight concentrated close to the motorcycle and as low as possible to minimize the change in the motorcycle's center of gravity. Distribute weight evenly on both sides of the vehicle. Do not load bulky items too far behind the rider or add weight to the handlebars or front forks.
  • Make sure that cargo is secure and will not shift while riding. Periodically check the load.
  • Make sure that the bag strap buckles are secure.
  • Secure straps and keep away from wheels.
  • Do not put more than 4.5 kg (10 lb) in bag.
