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?

Would be easy enough to make up a shield like the H&B one - or buy teh H&B one of course. SW-Motech rear rack comes with one as well.

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.
5321


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.
