    What is the best tank lock bag for the CT don't get bike for a few weeks but want to start sorting goodies out.  Any assistance would be appreciated.  If anyone has got a tank lock system  is there a specific fitting kit?

    I have Givi BF20 tank lock with Givi ST602B 5 Litre Tank Bag.
    For some earlier models (pre 2016 I think) tank lock model number is BF03.

    Same as above.
    It's surprising how much you can get in it!

    I have bags connection tank bag and am happy with it, Honda changed the number of bolts in the tank filler in mid 2014 so make sure you get the right tank lock, I had the tank bag, fenda extenda  hugger, shock tube, rad guard, sump guard, Akrapovic, satnav bracket and tom tom rider and Touratech seat waiting for my bike to be delivered, kept me pleasantly occupied for a couple of days fitting them. DCT Crosstourer is my favourite bike in over 55 yrs riding, hope we can get out a bit more this year

    Markieboy I asked the same question.The Givi and Kappa use the same fixing ring,the SW Motech has to be drilled to attach ( see u tube). lots here like the Givi.
    I want to see an Af Twin one before i buy -it has a steep slope tank so bags for it might fit.My other concern is a phone mount-if I can't get a bracket to mount my phone above the speedo Imay have to have a clear top bag to put it in.

    I don't know what you mean with the drilling.
    Before people start panicking, yes you have to drill but only in the bag and that is a positive thing.
    The horseshoe (as the tankring is called here) is a bolt on. The ring at the bottom of the bag has to be drilled but that is because they have some standard size bags which can be fitted on different bikes and by not pre mounting the ring you can position it like you want.
    Not every bike had the same place for the gas cap.
