I just got a new magnetic tank bag and thought I’d share the pictures in case anyone else wanted one.
My old (15+ years old) Marsee Ultra 30 liter bag was getting a little rough around the edges. I loved the durability and flexibility of this bag; collapsed to less than 1/2 the size, but expanded to 30l with a quick zip. I took the suggestion of someone here (rcannon) and installed Tank Slapper film to prevent scratches:
31943

31944


So I wanted something that could expand, and hold a lot. I love the design of the SWMotech bags, but they didn’t seem to expand that much. I need something that can fit 2-3 containers from Moe’s!

So I bought the largest capacity bag I could find, FORTY LITERS! Very flexible and seemed like a worthy successor to my Marsee bag. Here are the stock photos
31947

31945

31946

and here it is on the Ninja
Small Bag only (large bag placed on the tear:
31948


Large bag only, small bag set on the rear seat
31949


And here it is with both bags attached, and the larger bag is expanded (maximum capacity mode):
31950


It blocks most of the instrument panel in this configuration….I don’t see myself using it like this very often, but I can if I need to!

I use it with only the larger bag most of the time. 25 liters is more than I usually need
My only complaint is that the Givi bag only uses 4 magnets. The Marsee used eight(!). It’s not going anywhere, but it’s not as stable as the Marsee (which had a larger footprint and a shorter overall height). The zippers are also very small, so they are harder to start and pull. The Marsee zippers were huge gauge zips you could start with one hand.

You bought the GOOD film. I bought their film, back in 2010. That was before I realized the stuff was transparent and didnt require amazing , precision cuts. It was expensive, but it's still on my concours 14 and looks...well, there is no look. Its not yellow. A superior product.

Thanks! Great to know it holds up well. This forum is such a great resource. The Tankslapper set I got, which covers the whole tank, was only $20!

I still think the SW Motech City bag looks much better, and has a better 'integrated' look on this bike, but I'm being cheap (here is an image taken from another thread)....it is nearly triple the price of what I got after adding the cost of the mounting ring, and it had less than 1/2 the capacity.....
