Givi Tankbag & Tanklock Mounting Ring #BF11

Post by Bansheewc » Thu Mar 28, 2019 9:44 pm

So here's the thing - the local Givi distributer's catalog says the BF11 mounting ring only works with the XS319 tank bag on the Superduke 1290 GT. This seems weird to me - I thought the whole point of interchangeability meant that all tank bags work with the bike-specific flanges. I have an XS-307 tankbag (15L) and want to know if anyone else has paired a Givi tank bag with the BF-11 bracket?

G'day Bansheewc.....

You've posted in the SDR section and I only just stumbled onto it...... I have the BF11 munt on my SDGT and I use either of two tank bags...... I think mine are the 12 ltr 3D formed type ?307?306? versions..... see pics.

One is taller and obscures part of the dash when full (the carbon copy top and map holder style) and the other is flatter and wider and sits further back (the all black no map pocket type). But they both work on the GT tank.

Maybe the shop is saying some tank bags might interfere with the handlebar switches on full lock turns, but all givi quick release bags will fit the BF11 tank ring....... the only difference in the kits is the bolt holes and tank cap sizes...... the ring mount is the same size for all Givi bags.

Thanks again Dave for the thorough reply. I did end up speaking directly with Givi, and they didn’t know why the distributor listed the BF11 fitment with an asterisk - for use with a smaller bag only. They agreed with you, perhaps the distributor felt there was a switchgear impediment at full lock. They assured me their testing revealed no such compromises.
