    FYI. In order to place the 2 metal plates you have to drill 4 holes in the plastic rack. The drill holes are indicated on the underside so it is easy and no errors can be made ….if done correctly…. The 3rd large metal plate is bolted on. See pictures.

    Did those plates come with the factory bag? Do you have any pictures of the plates before the install? I am curious to see more of the bottom side of the plates that you need to drill into the plastic to mount.


    This should be part number 28012919044 tank bag. It was listed on official site some time ago, but I can’t find it there any more. But it is still available on some third party websites.

    I would like to install a tankbag as well.

    Does anyone has experience with not original tankbags, that could be rack mounted?

    I found these and I am wondering if they could fit on the rack:



    Any ideas?



    I was able to use the Givi Easy T. Model # EA102B with some mods to the factory tank rack and the bag.

    I made my own metal points for the bag magnets similar to the factory bag. I had to have them stick out a bit due to the GIVI bag being larger.

    On the GIVI bag, I cut off the straps and cut two of the magnet mounts. I moved one of the magments to the center of the bag to mate up to the metal at the back of the rack.

    Hope this helps with some ideas on how to use an aftermarket bag.


    Hi, I bought this tank bag by Kappa (black color) : https://www.kappamoto.com/Bagagerie-souple/Reservoirs/RA315

    It fits nicely on the tank. I secured it with the 4 straps/ribbons the bag comes with, rather than the magnets (for obvious reasons on this bike). To fill up the tank I loosen the two front ones to be able to lift the whole bag in a vertical position. It would be better if it was a clip system, as it would be easier to grab the bag on the fly when doing a quick stop, so I’m thinking about fitting some clips on the straps/ribbons. The bag transforms into a backpack which is convenient. There are plenty of other straps and clips on the bag, so maybe there is another way to secure it to the rack, but for now I’ve used te recommended”safest” option.

    I’ll do some other pictures if someone is interested, as this one doesn’t show the bag much, but it’s the only one I have : 




    I received the same Husqvarna tank bag for my Svartpilen 401.  “Instructions” are to go to Husqvarna’s website for the install instructions.  I’m searching and searching and searching and cannot find any.

    Did you receive them?  Or do you have a link with the instructions?

    A bit frustrated right now…

    No…I just had to sort it out myself. It is not so difficult and once fitted it is a nice addition to the bike.

    Just unbolt the rack. Drill 4 holes from the back to the front. You can see tiny round plastic ridges were to drill a these holes for the fixing of the 2 smaller metal plates. Screw on the 2 smaller plates and the larger plate on the lower section.

    I hope this helps….Husqvarna support and clarity on the accessories is minimal.


    Understood, thanks.  I’ll be giving it a go this weekend.


    BOO-YAH.  Found the instructions.


    Add the part number in the Clothing & Accessories Manuals section and search.




    hi Freccia-nera

    Have you more picture about installation of your tank bag?

    Hey there… just checking if somebody found in the meantime other luggage options? I have been searching for quite some time and tried a lot of different brands and systems. I am pretty happy with my Wolfman Enduro Day Tripper (ca. 12.4 liters) and the Wolfman Large Rollie Bag (ca. 12.5 liters). But I yet need to fit my laptop and tablet somewhere in order to be able to go on a 3-4 days road trip. I thought that finding a suitable tank bag which can fit my 12.5 x 9 inch laptop would be easy… but most bags are below 12 inch or if they are bigger they reach over the gas tank or interfere with the handle bars or the key lock. I am not considering a backpack at this point in time. Any recommendations?

    Can you please take a close picture of those Enduro Day Tripper, Wonder how complex to attach it is?


    Right now, I don’t have the bags installed. But I added some older pictures which I took during the installation process. To me the beauty is, that they fit without any alterations and you can move them all the way to the back so that nothing interferes with the high gloss side fairings. The bags have a rubberized surface on the inside… but I figured that the best solution against scratches is probably if there is no contact in the first place.

    The primary mounting system consists of 2 straps which you run over the seat. Since I wanted the bags as far to the end of the bike as possible I am running the rear strap over the sissy bar. Notice that in the picture this strap is not yet adjusted to the correct length. Also notice that I am not using the fender mount straps which come with the original bags. Instead I bought some basic black 1″ strap on Amazon and connected the two buckles on the back of the bags with each other. This strap is not installed in the picture I added. The purpose of this strap is to secure the bags from from moving forward. I don’t think this would actually be needed, but since the option is there I decided to take advantage of it. For the bottom straps I went through one of the slots from the plate of the passenger pegs. That’s it.

    It’s almost like this saddle bag has been designed for the Svartpilen. Shape, mounting options and even the yellow from the manufacturer label fits nicely. Unfortunately  Wolfman discontinued this product a while ago. From what I have seen only a few options to buy are left if you order from somebody online. I got mine form “Rocky Mountain ATV MC”. Wolfman also makes/ made a wider 25l version (12 l on each side). The footprint and mounting system is the same, the bag is just a couple inch higher. I preferred the smaller version to keep a sleeker look.


    For those people like me who like to keep there stuff orderly I can recommend this Samsonite bag as it fits the Husqvarna tank bag perfectly like it was made for it. Yes a bag in a bag….also called an inner bag…..crazy for some but perfect for me to take all my stuff in and out. It is a Samsonite HIP-Tech 2 Crossover M 9.7” black in case you want to know.
