Recommend me a Tailpack?
« on: September 19, 2017, 07:53:42 PM »
Hi All

Looking for some advice.
I have a 2015 SX with panniers so enough room for clothes etc for long weekends.

I've recently bought an Oxford Monster Harcore something or other chain to deter thieving scum when we're away on overnights.  It weighs approx 1 stone/6.4kg.

Keeping panniers free for trainers clothes toothbrush etc I am asking......

Is there a decent, robust tail pack that's I could put my lock (and waterproofs?) in that will hold it firm to the rear end without scuffing paint/wobbling about etc?  I guess 20 litres?
I know of Kriega but wondered if there's something a bit more "price conscious"?

Thanks.

The Kawasaki accessory tail pack 6-8 litres works well.

I've ordered the 13L one that SW Motech make.

I wanted something big enough for my lock and waterproofs.

I'll post a review early October after my next little weekender!

Definitely the genuine Kawasaki tail bag. I have used Kriega bags for ages, well before they changed names 😂, and when I got my Z1000sx this year, I swapped to the Kawasaki one. Mainly because it looked good but after using it for a few months, I can't fault it. Especially for ease of use. The only downside compared to Kriega stuff is they're not waterproof like them. Showerproof but that's it, so keep a carrier bag inside👍
