Anyone put a Touratech Flat tank bag on an R12RT quick release base


Recommended Posts

My OEM tank bag is getting pretty ragged, and I've always felt it's too large. Has anyone done this? I'd love hear about it and possibly see a picture. I'm about to place an order. Thanks in advance.

I too have a new BMW tank bag, it's to large for me. Will remove bag from base plate and install a smaller version. Then will sell the BMW bag for cheep. Will watch this post for ideas on what bag fits to the base plate.

Let's see it.


Sorry, I put a BigMak Tank bag on the R1200RT BMW bag mount, but I guess that's different.

I put a Wolfman Explorer on my BMW mounting plate.




I was very happy with it. I really like the additional outside pockets of the Wolfman.

So, can the r1200rt tank bag base plate be purchased separately? Does anyone have one for sale?


I do not believe it is available separately. You can find them occationally in the classifieds otherwise, it is an expensive proposition.

Is there a foundation inside the Wolfman to which you bolted the base plate to the bag? Or, did you add some sort of flexible plate?

Base plate is not available separately, trust me I tried US, Canada and Germany......

Only option is to find a used one on FleaBay or pay full price for OEM. If they sold the base they would make a fortune

That bag looks good (I went to there site) would you have a pic installed?


I put a Cortech Super Mini tank bag on a BMW base plate. It works great!

If you can locate an extra base plate, Big Mak makes a very nice small bag to mount on the baseplate. Works perfectly. My BMW bag was getting pretty beat so I picked up an almost new one from the classified and bought the Big Mak bag and put it on my old baseplate.


I use the small big mak one for around town and when I don't really need much storage and the BMW stock one for trips when I want more space.




The RT retro bag is right on the front of the page.
