Fitting Giant Loop bags to 610
« on: July 03, 2013, 12:07:26 pm »
Anyone with pictures how they fitted the bags to the 610 ? The side panels are minimilistic ans I'm worried about the bag touching the pipe. Also did you use the passenger pegs for the compression straps ? Seems this guy did it without the pegs.

What size you got? I use the Coyote and no issues with it touching exhaust. Strap low down on frame - some use the passenger peg square subframe brackets to make tie points for the GL.

I have the smaller Mojavi. With a tent on top I have enough for a three day trip.

So why you asking? - it will be nowhere near the zorst (I also have a Mojavi in addition to the Cayote). Search on Husky Cafe and you will see the GL attachment setups with the frame clamps.

Big Dom do you have any photo's of your set up on the exhaust side?

I'm also interested in a solution to this issue.

Did you have the passenger peg frames installed?

I have removed the passenger pegs from early on and just tie the bags to the bottom of the frame. I have wanted to make a more elegant  plug and play solution but not got around to it. As I say the answer I think is to use the square clamps from the passenger pegs and attach a U-bolt.

Some pics grabbed from Husky Cafe - the repurposing of the passenger peg brackets can be seen (pity he has not rounded off the attached plate decently  :eek7:) but this will give you an idea. I would try and use a u-bolt if possible through the bracket but as I say have not played around yet. This approach allows some flexibility of where to position the tie down points.
