Please verify before ordering: If your gas cap has 7 screws order the Type 135 ring. If your gas cap has 5 screws, order the Type 140 ring.

Some ZX14s have holes without any threading and require two extra nylocks to attach the ring. If you're attaching a tank ring to this bike, let us know and we'll send you the extra Nylocks!

SW-MOTECH EVO Tank Ring Installation Video

Note: If you already own an SW-MOTECH tank ring please ensure it has an EVO style quick-lock ring prior to making this purchase. This tank bag comes automatically with an EVO style top ring which is incompatible with ION style tank rings.

The bag is small, but nice enough. It's curvature doesn't really fit the bike tank but thats a minor detail. I gave this 3 stars because regardless of how far down (ie toward the rider) you try and put the bag, it's going to essentially block the powerlet and ignition! I can barely fit my key in to start the bike with this bag on, and my cigarette lighter/ powerlet plug (which is very skinny) does not fit. Very unhappy with this.

Second issue is getting the screws into the inside of the bag and screwing them in to the tanklock ring. I had to drill through the two middle snaps that keep the plastic to the bag, and it took far too long trying to fit my hands to the inside front of bag to screw in the top screws. Of course, this problem would have been avoided had I not had to mount the tanklock so far forward on the bag to minimize the problem mentioned above. (Posted on 2016-07-02)

I absolutely love this bag. I don't have to carry anothing in my pockets anymore (keys wallet etc). Very good quality bag. (Posted on 2016-06-06)

I have spent more time than I ever have installing Just The Tank Ring. The only part I do not need to modify to use. And then It will be too late, to RETURN. Drill this punch that. (Posted on 2016-04-05)

This bag installed easily and is aesthetically pleasing. The construction is top quality. It is also the right size for me although the bike could accommodate a large model. (Posted on 2016-03-26)

Review by Superfunkomatic
Got this just before a big trip and it worked out great. I was a little disappointed that although the quality of the materials is good, the bag is lopsided - the right side of the bag sits lower than the left and is slightly twisted. It doesn't hit my tank or affect the lockring (it's just a visual thing), but it looks a little weird when looking at the bike. Also, for the price (higher than many competitive products), having to drill and locate the baseplate is a little weird. Seems like a sliding mechanism built into the base that you locate and then lock with a few screws would be a better way to go. (Posted on 2015-09-24)
Review by s1xstr1ng
...or maybe "Mini Glove Box?". I really like the quick-release system and low profile tank ring (when bag not attached) but it comes at the price of space INSIDE the bag. Just like the description states, it's small. For some reason I envisioned my 7 liters as being... more... contiguous, I guess. Due to highly adjustable mounting options, the locking mechanism takes up a lot of room in a bag that doesn't have any room to spare which leaves me with 7 liters worth of nooks and crannies to stuff my stuff. If all you need in a tank bag is a place to put small items like your cell phone, charger, wallet, keys, glasses, lip balm/stick, tic-tacs, extra ear plugs, receipts, a beanie, and a few nutri-bars, this is the bag for you. You'll be able to fill it up with the contents of say a small/medium sized purse or glove box in no time. Better there than in your pockets, right? All-in-all it's a great little bag though - well constructed, functionally sound, easy to use, quality materials, thoughtfully engineered, looks just awesome. If you need a more room than that, go for something bigger or expandable (like the SW-Motech Trail). (Posted on 2015-09-04)

Don't write reviews much but this bag is perfect for my needs, easy to install and easy to remove for fueling. (Posted on 2015-08-26)

Fits the bike perfectly, removes easily, does not touch the paint.
Looks better than the BMW bag. (Posted on 2015-08-25)

Little pricey but a quality product. Have to drill your own holes so be careful. (Posted on 2015-06-29)
Review by Boz
bought this for my 2015 BMW R1200RT. The snap-off, snap-on feature works great and the design looks like it was made for my bike! Really, I can't think of any cons for this product .... only PROs! (Posted on 2015-06-25)
Review by Heavydutydan
Bought this bag system for my 2013 BMW F800 GS. The overall quality is excellent, and it's great for your smaller items. (Wallet, extra keys, cellphone, ear plugs, sunglasses, registration forms, etc) After years of riding, I've concluded I don't actually like a large, bulky tank bag. This one, on the BMW is nice and slim, doesn't take up a lot of room in the cockpit, so if you're looking for a big tank bag, this one isn't for you.

My only problem with this bag, if you're putting this on your BMW F800GS, is that the bag ends up sitting way too close to your ignition switch, making it a little clumsy to insert or remove or even turn your key, (although it's still possible to do all this while the bag is in place) The one major issue, is if you have the small factory 12v plug near your ignition switch, forget about using it. It's nearly impossible to use while this bag is in place, as it covers it (see photos). I got around this problem already as before I even bought this bag, I routed a 12v line from my battery up to another spot for auxiliary power for other accessories anyways, so I can live without the 12v one that's in that spot. If you're handy (and if you ride a motorbike, you SHOULD be) you can always move the 12v socket to another spot, or add another like I did.

The other issue is that even though the bag is contoured, it doesn't perfectly contour with the bike, which is understandable, as it wasn't made to exactly fit in the first place. If you have an F800 GS, and can live with these small issues, you won't be disappointed. The last tank bag I was using was secured on with straps and I hated the sloppy look of the straps and how they were ruining the body work of the bike by rubbing on it. This bag system cleans up your bike and doesn't leave any sloppy straps all over the place.

Another small issue would be the rain bag they give you. It's actually a complete opposite of the rest of the product. It's completely garbage. Cheaply made, thin material with a useless cord you use to cinch it tight to the bag. I wouldn't count on it lasting as long as the rest of the bag system. (Posted on 2015-06-22)
Review by grod3
This bag is a great bag for holding small quick needed items such as cell phone, glasses, wipe cloths. It also has a hole in the top for power cords. I ran my own power to the bag so when removed from the mounts it maintains power while disconnected (Posted on 2015-06-06)
Review by BikerPhil
This is a really good looking bag. It flows nicely with the lines of the 2015 Yamaha FJ-09. It is small, but efficient. It has wire ports on both ends, and accommodations for a gadget (phone, GPS) holder on the front. I put the template for the ring connector
all the way to the back, drilled the holes, fastened the ring connector down, and done. I didn't drill the anti theft device hole, and after watching the video on how to get the bag off if you can't get to the tab/cable, wished I had....but I will later. Always make sure the tab that is looped through the release cable is snapped on to the front. It can be difficult to retrieve it if it gets tucked under the bag. Overall, a great looking product that stands off of the paint, and works great! (Posted on 2015-03-19)

I like the bag but was fooled by how tiny tiny it is. Good for a couple pair of glasses, rag, small bottle of water and that is it.
I especially like the quick release mount. (Posted on 2014-12-01)

This is just right... Way big enough to carry all my pocket stuff, and then some... Easy on, easy off... Easy install too. (Posted on 2014-11-30)

Costs way more than it should. That being said it us a nice bag, fit and finish are good and it sits nicely on the multistrada. Don't waste your $$ on the electric version, this one has a spot you can route wiring through if your bike is equipped (Posted on 2014-11-10)
Review by Detours
With a couple of caveats, I really like the 'Engage' tankbag. Other brands offer a tankring bag in this size, but this is the only bag of its size that conforms to the steep tank on my V-strom 650. The side pockets are good for sunglasses, the rainfly or an energy bar or two. It's a small bag to begin with, but the main compartment is unfortunately smaller than it looks. At the cost of interior volume, the floor vacuum-molded floor takes up a lot of room, but it allows you to flush-mount the quick-lock at the front or back of the bag to custom fit your tank. The velcro divider makes it even more cramped, so I tossed it. Still, there's enough room for a quart of oil and a light jacket (make that a very light jacket), with some odds and ends in the curved section.

The quick-lock mechanism is very solid and holds the bag securely, but make sure it engages cleanly after you gas up. A solid tug will tell you if it's on tight. To release the bag, you have to reach under the front of the bag and pull a wire loop with your finger, which is a pain even with my XL hands. Mounting the quick-lock closer to the front would have made this easier, but then the bag wouldn't lay as close to the tank, which was the whole point of paying more for this bag ... so yeah, a little annoying.

The rainfly is 100% waterproof (which I've tested in about an hour of medium rain) and has about 10" diagonal clear plastic. But even without the rainfly, the bag is very, very, very water resistant. I got caught in a 45 minute rain without the rainfly and the water just beaded up on the fabric. I'm sure the windshield helped some, but not a drop got through the fabric or zippers. Leave the rainfly at home unless you're touring in the Pacific Northwest.

So all in all, a 4 star bag. I took away one star for its high price (compared to other brands that mount to the tankring) and the difficulty reaching the release wire under the bag. (Posted on 2014-10-10)
Review by Tom
I had used a Cortech tank bag on my BMW K1300S and was very disappointed in the quality, design and mounting system. Tossing that, I've now purchased and installed this SW-MOTECH bag and couldn't be happier. Aside from the fact that this particular bag fits my K-bike bike tank perfectly---it's style and fit seem custom designed for this bike---the quality is superior: design, materials, features, mounting system, and detailing are all exceptional. It simply couldn't be better. Whenever I need similar products in the future, SW-MOTECH will be my first, and likely only, stop. (Posted on 2014-09-13)
Review by EGreen
For the money, I expected much nicer. My bag is not symmetric at the back... not even close. Terrible workmanship in that area. The drilling and mounting using the template is a complete pain. Does not line up well with 2014 Vstrom 1000. I recommend getting another bag for this bike, plain and simple. Very disappointed. (Posted on 2014-09-05)
Review by GTz2254
I carry lots of "stuff" on my '13 Concours and I like a small tank bag for items like wallet, phone, ear plugs, etc. Strap-on bags are not suitable for the Concours and I do not like magnetic bags as I have not found one that did not mar the paint. The SW-Motech Engage is exactly the right size and mounts to the gas cap, leaving a gap between bag and tank that will not harm the finish. It clip on easily and removes in a second for fill-ups. Also I am able to clip my Gerbings heated jacket controller to the compartment on the left side. My only complaint is that the installation instructions for the base plate are a little tough to follow. Otherwise, great product. (Posted on 2014-08-05)

I have a Bags Connection system on my 2010 F800GS and is very functional. The new mechanism is very finicky and I spend an extra 2 minutes at every fill-up trying to be certain it has latched. In order for the contour to even come close to matching lines of tank the tank bag needs to be forward which results in the horn being activated every time it is in tight quarters with bars to left as in backing against curb. I am ready to start rigging the so it works which will likely involve washers to remount the ring on the tank and a sharp knife to cut the little pockets off the side of the tankbag.

Installed this tank bag on my 2014 Suzuki DL650. Fits perfectly and looks great. Does not interfere with the handlebars. Very functional, just the right size to hold wallet, sunglasses, keys, earplugs, and all the other bits you carry. Excellent quality. (Posted on 2014-07-07)
Review by Sherrill
I purchased this for my BMW K1300S and the fit and function are perfect. I use this for day trips and the pockets and internal divider keep everything organized and easy to find. The bag is secure on the bike and easy to remove for gas fillups.
I like this EVO Quick-Lock concept and have now ordered the 'City' version for longer trips when I tend to over pack! (Posted on 2013-09-24)

Very easy on and off. Quality construction but I wish it held a little more stuff. The shape looks really nice but restricts what can be put in it. (Posted on 2013-09-05)
Review by James
Been riding with this bag on my BMW R1200GS for a while now. I needed to fabricate a wedge to get it to sit properly on the tank but once installed it looks and works great. The quick release mount is great when gassing up or leaving the bike in "questionable" areas. I holds everything I want but could use some more compartments. (Posted on 2013-03-31)

I have just bought it for my BMW S1000RR, its the best match to tank curve but you need to mod another mount tank ring base for the best position on tank. (Posted on 2012-10-03)
