We designed our product line-up for Yamaha Tenere 700 with rack-less soft luggage in mind. Perun moto Yamaha Tenere 700 Top luggage rack provides smooth and perfectly positioned slots for upper straps, Yamaha Tenere 700 Side carriers offers support for the sides of the bags and Yamaha Tenere 700 Tie-down brackets are perfect as a lower tie-down point.
This works great for several most popular rack-less systems. Here are a few photos of Enduristan Blizzard XL bags on this setup. Other systems are shown in the blog posts too, look it up. All posts are written in the same manner, so it should be easy to compare the fitment of different systems.
In this case, bags are positioned as far forward as possible, without interfering with a rider, sitting or standing. This greatly contributes to mass centralization and improves the handling of the bike.
Also, set up like this and with the help of Side carriers, bags are not touching the silencer. Heat shield is there just in case and the bottle holder is not touching it.
It is hard to take a decent photo, but Side carriers are supporting the rear end of the bags.
At the same time, Tie-down brackets provide perfectly placed tie-down points for lower straps.
And Top luggage rack offers smooth slots, so upper strap can be secured properly. There are several ways to do it, but I am using a single strap to attach left and right bag and pull the strap through the slots on the rack.
One of the benefits of this setup is that it is (relatively) narrow. Much more narrow than the handlebars.
These bags can seem a bit complicated at the start, due to many straps. But once time is taken to set them up properly, installation and removal is very simple. Also, fit is great and bags are very secure.
Bag openings are large and it is easy to access the luggage in the side pockets.
Bottle holders are sold separately. Very useful feature, I suggest getting them.
Very convenient feature is that haul loop can be attached to the side rails of the Perun moto Top luggage rack and it can be reached through the cut-out on the base of the bag. I use Kriega Haul loop - rear, but almost any haul loop will do.
