Video: How to Mount Coyote Saddlebag + MoJavi Saddlebag on Late Model KTM, Husqvarna Fenders

By | FAQ, Fitment, Husqvarna, KTM, Saddlebags, Snow, Tech Tips, Video | No Comments

Here’s how to use the loop of our custom-woven Ballistic® nylon (included with Giant Loop’s Coyote Saddlebag and MoJavi Saddlebag) instead of the Fender Hooks to anchor the bag to the rear fender. Simply loosen the bolts holding the two halves of the rear fender together enough to thread the webbing between the upper fender and the under-fender support. Check webbing positioning: Saddlebag should sit right behind seat when side anchor straps are tensioned. Retighten bolts to sandwich webbing between fender components, positioned to anchor Saddlebag behind rear seat when side straps are tight. Thread webbing through underside of Saddlebag in pass through thumb-lock buckles – push the stiff webbing through and pull to tight to finish. When Saddlebag is not on bike, use buckle, wire tie or other simple method to prevent loose webbing ends from dangling into hot exhaust. Go light, go fast, go far!

Giant Loop Rider: Geoff’s Suzuki DRZ400 with MoJavi Saddlebag and GL Mounts

By | Fitment, Riders, Suzuki, Tech Tips, Uncategorized | No Comments

Local rider Geoff’s Suzuki DRZ400 is about as nicely set up as any we’ve seen, with Trail Tech Voyager GPS, Race Tech Suspension, full Yoshimura Exhaust and aftermarket carb. Here are some details about his MoJavi Saddlebag installation using the new Giant Loop (GL) Mounts, which will work great with the Coyote Saddlebag and Great Basin Saddlebag, too. #golightgofastgofar

Geoff is using the Giant Loop GL Mounts, sharing a bolt point with his Suzuki DRZ400’s passenger peg mounts. GL Mounts help keep straps away from hot exhaust and shorten anchor strap length to maximize stability of Giant Loop Saddlebag installation.

Geoff’s using a small spacer to set the Giant Loop GL Mount away from the passenger peg’s other bolt and to give plenty of room to work when anchoring Giant Loop Saddelbags and soft luggage to dirt bikes and dual sport motorcycles.

Giant Loop’s GL Mounts make a clean installation, with straps kept away from boots on both sides.

Since Geoff leaves the MoJavi Saddlebag mounted on his Suzuki DRZ400 all the time, he’s using a hard-mount bolt-on installation (which can also be done with Giant Loop’s Coyote Saddlebag).

Two bolts through the dirt bike’s rear plastic fender and metal fender brace, a couple of washers and nylock nuts, and the Giant Loop Saddlebag is not coming off. Period.

Giant Loop Rider: Swamp’s Continental Divide Tour on BMW G650 X-Challenge

Continental Divide Trail on BMW G650GS X-Challenge


Swamp is a serious adventurer who’s ridden all over the Americas on dual sport bikes. Here’s the intro his latest “Mexico to Canada: Solo on the Continental Divide” with the Coyote Saddlebag, Zigzag Handlebar Bag and Pronghorn Straps:

“After having one of my motorcycles confiscated by a band of illiterate, Ecuadorian customs officials in early July 2014. I returned home and started piddling around with my 2007 BMW G650 X Challenge. Changing the oil, oil filter, air filter; installing new tires and some other modifications and tweaks. The bike had previously received no love from me. I just rode it, never washed it, rarely changed the oil, never changed the filters. Every time I rode it I would try to rag the motor out. It never complained. Never boiled over. Never leaked. Anything.

I usually like white bikes but the paint on THIS one (yes, its paint not just white plastics) always bothered me so I sanded the plastics down and put a few coats of green paint on it. The bike seemed to say “Jeez, finally!” I let it set for a few weeks. Only riding it down to the river a few times to go fishing.

On July 20th I woke up, made coffee and walked outside. It was foggy; pretty thick. “Ya, I think I’m going to ride the Continental Divide”.

Five days later, July 25th both the X-Challenge and I were riding through the border town of El Paso Texas then working our way into New Mexico where we would meet up with the Continental Divide trail near Hurley/ Silver City. As far as planning and preparations went, well; I “prepared” for maybe two hours. I had some containers for extra gasoline, one pair of socks, one pair of underwear (wearing both ), a rain jacket, batteries, flash light, small air compressor, some tools, a knife, a lighter, harmonica, protein bars, a trash bag and a camping rig the size of a football. Basically the same shit I’ve carried with me for eight or nine years now.”

Here’s Swamp’s comments about the Giant Loop gear in the conclusion of his ride report:

“Giant Loop Coyote bag (giantloopmoto.com) : I’ve had this bag for a few years now and its still holding up despite having the hell beat out of it. The Giant Loop guys have treated me well and have always answered the phone and returned my calls and e-mails. Their customer service is excellent and I believe that their products are excellent. The bag is just that, a bag. Put whatever you can fit in it, its not complicated. On this ride I lashed an extra 1/2 gallon of gas to the top of the bag with no problems using a set of pronghorn straps. The Coyote is the perfect size for this ride.. however I found it strange that I rode The American Flesh Eater Route from California to Alabama (1 month ride) using the smallest giant loop bag (the mojavi) but used a larger bag for this ride.”

“Also, the Pronghorn Straps are friggin’ sweet! Probably my favorite “new thingys” for the bike lately.”
