Heli Bar Tank bag suggestions

Love the Heli bars but my tank bag comes in contact at full left turn on risers. It's a magnetic bag which I like but have to mount it on back of the tank to clear the risers so what are alternatives for a bag from those of you who've got Heli risers? TIA

Agree with that....... and I did. I found the bigger the bag the more crap you'll put in it, and one can indeed do with much less.

Went with a Nelson-Rigg CL-2015 Journey sport bag. It fit in proper place on top of tank & allowed full lock turns with Heli bars. Prolly 3-4" narrower than my previous bag. Ceramic magnets seem stronger also.

I found the Nelson Rigg trails end bag to be good quality and not to interfere with the (heli’d) bars at all, even at lock, and that was with the bars in the middle position. It was a really good fit.

No commercials. No dictators.

I have Helibars and went with the Bags Connection "daypack". It was the narrowest i could find, and it still contacts the bars. Benefit with this bag though, is that it has a zipper on the lower circumference to allow expandability. If you leave this zipper open, the bars just harmlessly nudge the bag over a bit. Works great !
Slightly bigger bag from them ("Engage" i believe its called) looks to have the same dimensions.
