Watch out for deteriorating foam on the K1200 tank bags

I had picked up a used K1200 tank bag with two front straps and a two-piece back zippered flap for $100 on Craigslist but I made one mistake that you should not make.

The foam on the bottom is all falling apart so whomever you buy the tank bag from, ask the condition of the foam!

I'm going to take cobbler's advice and look for orthopedic foam (I just haven't had the chance yet) and I'll post a picture when I'm done of what it looks like.

i got a brand new bag from www.piratesk12site.c om and only paid 50 bucks.

its not very large but it will hold a bottle of water, cell phone, keys, ipod all together.

mounts on to gas cap with quick disconnects. if you dont need to carry your house in your tank bag it's great. after all that's what saddle bags are for.

K1200RS Tank Bag Needed

I have a never used black BMW tank bag made for the K12RS. It came with a 2002 that I just purchased. The only thing that was used was the velcro attachment that I removed. You can have it for $150. I live in Bluemont, VA, [email protected].

What condition is the foam in (i.e., does it come apart in your hands)?

Tank bag

This BMW tank bag is about a year old, so no foam issues. The previous owner bought the 2002 K12RS and bag and didn't ride the bike or use the bag. It was included in the sale.

tank bag

Actually, any tank bag will work with the K1200RS

I have an old one(not design for the K1200RS)...all I do is attached bungie code to it and hook it to the side fairing "grill"...works great.
