Anyone using this magnet kit to mount on their 2018+ GW?

If so please comment on them. I should receive mine in a week or so.

I have had tank bags for years and love them for ease of access for small items.

I wish they came in more than the color black but ... will still add them to my white DCT Tour.

Today Oct 13 2021 after calling Cycle Gear CS phone support they suggest the discontinued ….. (tank bag you mention in your video)

Cant speak on them as I don't think I'll ever get any or the tank bag, but I love the concept and think the black color goes with any motorcycle, especially your WHITE DCT. I mean if you have a tank bag on them, you don't see what color they are anyway.

I always had a small tank bag on my my BMW K1200RS and my R1200RT. I miss it. The little cubby is handy but not big enough.... The side glove box is useless. You really can't put anything in there or it will just fall out...

Dang, I thought the magnets would go on the underside of the plastic. Looks kinda messy that way.

I would like to see your installation when done. Pictures please. As for the color, paint the plates before installation (or cover them with reflective tape).

Why not use a strap on tank bag? I’ve had mine a couple of years.

RKA tank bag
I have that bag (used it on previous BMWs). It does not fit the shape of the GW "tank" well, and blocks both the glove box and fuel filler. The fuel filler is not so much a problem (on my BMW's the front quick releases had to be released to lay the bag back). Opening the fuel filler is too infrequent to be a problem, but I go into my glove box often -- too much if a pita to release/hook up the bag that often, for me.

I open the fuel filler every 220 miles and I rarely go in the glove box, since I have a tank bag. I unclip the rear strap and flip the bag forward. I also took the latch off the fuel door, since the bag covers the door.

As a plus, I ran my phone cord into the bag, as well as heated gear power and a dual USB charger. Sunglasses, phone, camera, bottle of water, microfiber towel, and map pocket, all within reach. 7000 miles in the last 6 weeks, proves that it works for me.

Thanks for the heads-up. I'm a sucker for stuff like this. Also, I wonder if Max is working on a magnetic wig-mount to cover his developing bald spot.

Update: Got the kit from Max but the tank bag suggested by the work he did with Dark Horse's (BIKE) has been discontinued: (See below)

SEDICI T2 Como
Black1328038140315SEDLG-T22Out of Stock
Silver1328039140316SEDLG-T22SOut of Stock
  • Capacity: 6 Liters
  • Dimensions: 12.5' L x 7.5" W x 5.5" D
I hope Max has some ideas on which (unstuck) magnetic tank bag would fit on the 2018+ with his kit.

If anyone has a suggest to a magnetic tank bag very similar to the SEDICI T2 Como tank bag (or have a used one to sell) please comment.

Thanks

Florida Brent - is it Out of Stock or Discontinued? Out of stock would suggest that they are still making them but just can't get them at this time. Just curious as you mention discontinued but the screen shot you show, says Out of Stock.
