    Elephant Tank Bag Base

    Do you need a base plate for your Elephant tank bag? Or you'd like to use your Elephant on various motorcycles without having to change the base plate?

    The base is attached to the vehicle with minimal hand pressure and the tank bag can be quickly fastened to it. Push the holding tongue of the tank bag through the inclusion and close it from the front. An easy quick fastening that also makes it possible to attach and remove with gloves and with wet fingers.

    With a removable handle for refueling. The base plate can be quickly detached, but can also remain on the vehicle and thus protects the paint. The base plate is also suitable for accommodating the separately available map holder without using the tank bag.

    The facts:

    • Specially tailored for the R1200 GS, R1200 GS Adventure, R1250 GS and R1250 GS Adventure
    • Accommodates all tank bags in the Elephant range
    • Thanks to the separate clips and hooks, the map holder can also be used even without the tank bag
    • Free access to the filler cap in one move
    • Rubberized, paint-friendly surface ensures a solid fit
    • Quick and easy assembly
    • Made in Europe

    easy to install and practical
    I already own an Elephant tank bag and used it on my F800GS models. The system is extremely easy to install and convenient to use. Of course, on the F800GS there is no need to remove the tank bag for refueling, but if you travel it is great to be able to quickly remove the tank bag and but it back on. If there is one item for improvement it relates to the items provided with the base plate. Back in 2011 the base plate shipped with the clear protective tape - there was enough for 2 bikes. The new unit no longer ships with the clear protective tape. So if you want to keep the paint on your bike free of abrasions from sand and dust, you'll need to experiment and find a suitable protective tape.

    Finish the Design
    I gave the base a 3* rating because it hold my elephant bag to the tank well, what I don't like is that one of the features of the 2017 GSA is the little box on the top of the tank. This a cool place to put things that you might want easy access to, the base covers that box up so I have to remove or significantly loosen the base if I want to get into there. So my point is they could have easily designed something similar to the fuel tank access or just put webbing across the top so I could still have access. Also the holes punched in the base for securing to the plastic body parts ain't spaced the same distance as the holes on the bike so there is a wrinkle between the two bolts, big deal-not really an issue just a detail that someone that got paid to design or lay this out would have addressed or reviewed. The other think that I have never liked about this bag/base combination is the process for getting access to fueling. When I've used the velcro straps to secure the bag you have to undo 3/4 of the straps and snaps to get to the fuel port, then the bag hangs over the side of the bike. Again not as well thought out as I would have expected, has anybody at the factory really used these things. I paid a lot of money for the bag and now two bases and just was not impressed with the thought that the designers did on this system. I'm an engineer and I can tell you there are a number of simple improvements you could make to make this assembly a lot better working system for the rider
