Soo I am wondering if some of you got some experience in fitting the kriega bags on the bike.


If so where did you mount it? Like what part of the frame? maybe pics?
Because need them to fit when il be traveling on it.


Thanks alot.

Here is how i fit my touratech bag , kriega should work the same! Connect to frame under the seat. Hope it helps 馃檪



yeah managed to put it on the subframe. But saw someone fit the straps under the seat maybe going for that once i don't know
I think if you unscrew the seat from the seat panel you will be able to place the straps in between.

I have put a small Kappa tail bag on mine strapped under the pillion seat.
Kappa Light Range LH203R Expandable Mini Tail Bag. Nice size and expandable and not stupidly priced like the KTM one.

I have had both a 10 and a 20 on my rear seat. I have the older version Kriega's that use the straps that you just lay under the seat, rather than attach to a specific point. No need to separate the seat; just lay the straps in place under the seat, reinstall the seat and away you go. If you have the newer style straps then my comments didn't help you a bit...sorry!

I've been playing around with some of the luggage I already have. The first photo is a Kriega 20 filled. The 2nd is a 10 mostly empty. The third is a Wolfman Peak that just clips to the edge of the seat. I've also toyed with replacing my rear seat with a SW Motech or Hepco luggage plate and strap my Mosko Moto Scout 30 Duffel to it. That's what I used on my 690 Duke.

I had a set of Bags Connection Blaze panniers that I used on a Street Triple and my Super Duke. I really liked them and wish they would make a compatible mounting arm for the Duke.

I'm renting a 790 Duke in June for 12 days in Switzerland and Italy. Since the bike comes with no sport luggage, I'm planning to borrow a Kriega Combo (US 20 + US 10 + US 10). Any chance you could post pics of the Kriega on your bike? Would love to see how you mounted the system.

And any concerns of the bags getting burned on the exhaust pipe?

The feedback on Kriega is outstanding.

Cheers

I just put a Kriega 5 on mine. Used the pillion seat itself as opposed to going to the frame. It is small, in fact, very small, but I am using it for transporting my lunch and my locks to work. I attached the rear two straps to the frame under the pillion at the back of the seat (where the rear handle screws in to). For the front straps, since there were two of them, I weaved them together to make one longer strap and laid it over the battery. Snapped the pillion back on and just use the quick connectors on the bag to attach. Works great.

Sorry for the late reply!!

Hi Friend, did it melt the one on the side or both bags?

Regarding fixing Kriega luggage packs to the pillion seat area of the Duke, I used some Kriega webbing loops like this :-

The above hypalon webbing loops are 95mm long whereas mine are about 60mm long. I cannot remember the exact model of bike but I think it was a Ducati model.

I have successfully used these links on two other bikes. You just need to remove the four rear trim panel bolts from under the seat and fit longer bolts, packed to suit with spacers or washers.

As you can see, the loops are screwed to the frame and then the normal Kriega straps loop into them.

My concern regarding fastening luggage to the pillion seat is that the security of the assembly is only as strong as its weakest link, which is probably the single rear seat latch. By using loops screwed to the bike frame the luggage is more secure. I carry a Kriega US10 all the time, containing puncture repair and first aid stuff. When travelling further, I double up with a Kriega US30.

It is probably the Panigale 899 fitting. Link from a German site below:

Trying to find the bolts in the spare parts catalogue to check their size but im bad at using this site.
Also any idea how much longer the bolts should be? Doesn't look like it needs much.

After I took one of the bolts out it was obvious which part is it. Nr. 83008000012 from the catalogue (M6x12 special screw). Looks like I'll need a smaller washer or two which are about 10mm in diameter and 3mm thick. And then a big washer on top. I guess a 16mm screw will fit fine, there should be enough space under the seat.

You seem to have figured the same method and solution as I did. Mine were certainly Ducati fittings and I think you are right about them being Panigale 899. I bought stainless steel half-round head M6 x 16mm thread length from a local stockist. I measured the originals bolts, then figured out how much extra length I would need to bring the strap pads level with the frame, so that they did not suck down and bend the pads. 16mm worked fine but if you bought the same or longer you can always shorten them to suit. (stainless steel work-hardens, so don't back off as you saw) As you suggested, I packed out with suitable washers until I got the right height and checked that all screw heads did not interfere with the pillion seat pad.
It is an easy simple improvisation and has worked for me without any problems. I recently toured with the US10 bag, strapped on top of the US30 bag and it remained secure.

Fittings finally arrived and now mounting is in progress. I could fit two before I dropped some washers under the tool kit compartment and they disappeared into the nether.
I noticed a couple of little issues that might resolve themselves once the material gives in:
1. The loops are just the right length, so the hooks can only be attached with the seat off. It is so tight that im worried about the plastic on the seat getting damaged with the loops under tension. I might try stretching the nylon.
2. Seat is harder to lock because the 16mm bolts in the back seems to push against the plastic a tiny bit. Reluctant to get rid of the last spacer but that might end up being a decent idea.
3. For the two forward positions, 16mm seems to be barely enough with all the washers I had to add. I might give 18mm a try so I can screw in the bolt a bit deeper.

The last point might also help with the available length as the loop is barely sticking beyond the seat. If I raise it a bit more it will even out.

Might add pictures later but I figured I post here in case there is something obvious im missing :)

Cheers!

I can't edit my post, forgot about that so sorry for the spam. I mounted all four and given some threadlocker, im confident that the setup will be quite solid.

The nylon straps are visibly lifting the plastic on the seat. I am worried about water entering the battery compartment. Will this get better with the time as the seat presses on the nylon or should I maybe look into adding some thin water proofing tape?

Here some pictures:

Before you ask why im so worried about rain: im planning a trip on the west coast of Norway and this could be an issue :D
Overall super happy though, I love the bags and this mounting option feels very secure.
