Details

    Designed to be the little brother to the Rainier—Wolfman’s largest tank bag—the Explorer Lite Tank Bag gives you many of the same specialized features in a slightly smaller, 13 liter size. As far as dimensions go, the Explorer will stand 2 inches shorter than the Rainier and have a more slim width for better handlebar clearance.

    The base is angled to fit sloped tanks, which makes the bag perfect for most dirt bikes, dual sports, and adv bikes, and the mounting harness also lets the bag move forward and back on the tank—letting you customize how much room you have in the saddle. As for the bag itself, it’s made from the same ballistic fabrics as other Wolfman bags along with a stiffer foam internal stiffener, allowing the bag to hold its shape and withstand the stress of carrying a full load of gear while the bag is completely expanded.

    The bag is easy to remove from its harness as well thanks to the 4-buckle quick-release straps, and once you remove the bag it’s easy to carry with you by either the integrated carry handle or the optional Backpack Shoulder Straps (sold separately). So whether you use the bag during your commute, on weekend trips, or as part of your luggage arrangement on long adventure rides, the Wolfman Explorer Lite will deliver some of the most durability and versatility from any tank bag currently available.

Outstanding Quality
I installed this tank bag using the fairing frame and not the steering head, it fits fine and is very secure and stable. I did not need to buy the KLR 650 harness as the stock harness works well. The quality is top notch, I have no complaints there. For the price I do wish it came with the rain cover. Had I to do it again I might be inclined to buy the next larger size tank bag but I have no idea if it would fit, this one fits well with no interference with the controls.

Nice tank bag that seems to be built well and has plenty of storage space
I bought the bag because ultimately it has more storage capacity than the giant loop bags and for less money. Nice quality and build but I’m kinda disappointed that it didn’t come with a rain cover. Would be nice to have a waterproof option on my adventure bike.
