Givi XS307 tankbag
« on: June 22, 2017, 09:47:33 PM »
Had this delivered today, along with the BF11 fitting kit. It looks a nice bit of kit, well made and just the right size for everyday use. Now, all I need is the bike to fit it to.......tomorrow! Oh yes, does anyone use the headstock strap? I may end up cutting it off if it's fiddly to use.

I've got the Givi 603 (same BF11 fitting) and never bothered with using the headstock strap. It's been perfectly fine without it.

I'm undecided about this bag having tried it on the bike and finding it almost completely covers the ignition. A real faff for putting in or removing the key. I've got the bag as far back as it will go. I suppose the only solution is to remove the bag when accessing the lock.

Yep, that's what I do. You soon get used to this. I thought it was a faf to begin with... but not a problem anymore now I'm used to it....especially when it takes a split second to remove and replace the bag.

Did you remove the headstock strap?

Yep, as I don't use it.

I cut the strap off and I'm fine with the bag now. You quickly get used to it.
