@AJL277 - seems you're experienced using Kreiga. Would you recommend US10 or US20 as a tankbag? Just afraid US20 could be too big in the front but your recommendation could be a key here.
Thanks

I always put a 10 on the tank. Sometimes with a 5 on top of that.
Picture I posted above is the 675 with a 10 on the tank, a 20 and 10 on the tail.

Picture below is the following US Drypacks 20,10,5  (Sorry about the quality of the picture)

I have a friend that put a 20 on the tank although it's only 2/3 full  :084:  but I think it's to much.
It's a shame the tail is not able to be used as the 675 for myself I will probably just use my R25 rucksack.

hey AJL277,
thanks, it clarifies a lot. Well, I really like the Kriega system however I'm a little worried about scratching a tank with their adapter. Motech once installed stays above the paint.
Any comment here?  - sorry for bothering you...

Never had a problem with the Tank Harness. The back is some sort of cushioned rubber  :028:
Have used most years when touring and not a mark on the tank.
As a thing to note .. The 675 had a dark grey frame and the front tank harness straps blended in so I left them on permanently. The 765 being silver not sure I'd be leaving the straps on the bike  :084:



You can see the strap with button release at the front of the tank. For the most of the time I wasn't using the bags the straps just poked into the "V" of the frame out of the way.
