BMW K1200LT Front Strap

Online single front strap InstructionsIf you have the RKA Mini SuperSport or Mini SuperSport eXpandable tankbag bag on another motorcycle and you want to attach it to a K1200LT, here is how to modify one of the straps that came with your regular three point system, to work on the K1200LT.

The SuperSport Mini series is the correct and only bag we recommend for the K1200LT. We do not recommend installing any other bigger tankbag "RKA's" or "other brands" on the K1200LT, In our opinion they are to big and do not fit properly.

Also this page shows the correct way to string webbing through a buckle.

Measure out about 22" of webbing and cut it with scissors. Burn the cut end with a match so it will seal the end and not fray. Discard the looped end scrap left over.
