Givi Tank Lock Tank Bag With Bar Risers

Has anyone found a givi tank lock bag that won’t hit the bars when a helibridge or mv risers are in use? I have a small Givi tsnk bag that is super useful for distance and/or competitive rides, but it impinges upon the bars significantly. Just curious.

I’d consider putting film down on the tank and running something else that sits further back, but am primarily focused on tank lock bags. Super convenient.

Put some film down anyway, chances are the bag will rub somewhere.... I used a Givi 20L bag and found it a little big. Our buddy Pants had the 15L version but the zippers were small and not robust, that size would have worked. I'm not much help but I like a couple of side pockets for small stuff... I've gone to a 12L Nelson Rigg magnetic, it's just as handy and cut down a bit on stuff I take..

I have a 15L tank loc bag with std bars and yea you have you be careful in low speed tight turns like in a parking lot. Mine doesn't hit the paint at all. I wish I had gone with a magnetic bag, probably have 4 in the closet but wanted to try and protect the paint a bit. Like Ray said I should have just put some clear on the tank and not worried about it. The tank locs are adjustable and you can move them fore and aft over a maybe 1 1/2" to 2" range. Mine is back pretty far, but now it hits my stomach as well as the bars, so I can't move it back any further lol. With bar risers I think it would come back further and provide more clearance, but it would look strange as the back of the bag already hovers over the tank quite a bit

Funny I have never put film down on a bike where I used a magnetic tank bag, but I always set it down on a clean seat, etc. just to get gas. But, doesn't hurt to take a peek to see if there's any grit there. The tank-locs I've had all rubbed somewhere, or sagged eventually, so I put pads or film down.

Again, I've always liked tank bags with side compartments to keep me from digging into the big part when I need something quick like a flashlight or earplugs or gum or.... whether it was a tank-loc or not.

I don't see how you guys do it. I've tried different sizes and different mounting but over the yrs I've found that I absolutely despise a tank bag. I've given away at least 3. Sure, it might be convenient but to me it's akin to having a bunch of mail and children's toys piled on a truck dash board. Can't stand it!!

lol I've been running tank bags on every bike I've owned since back in the mid 70's, Eclipse, Bagman, Tourmaster, Cortech, Nelson Rigg, and now Givi. They are always on the bike unless I'm getting gas, or the bike is getting washed, or I'm checking into a hotel. I'd rather have a tank bag, than saddlebags or trunk. I love my tank bags.

My wife and I in 1977 on our KZ 1000 with Eclipse tank bag (hey at least we were wearing helmets lol)

I have the smallest Motech "daypack". It is the narrowest bag i could find and it still hits the bars with a helibridge. Coolest thing about the Motech bags is the expandable zipper is low on the bag and if you leave it unzipped, the bars just nudge it over instead of blasting the horn.
