Questions on Adventure-Spec Magadan Panniers

  • From richard at 28/08/2012 10:37
    • hi,

      will these fit with this rack?
      http://www.weldcore.com/drz1.jpg
    • The Magadan panniers are designed to be used with any rack system that keeps the bags away from the rear wheel and the exhuast, they are not rack specific.

      Hope that helps

    • Hi,

      Do the Magadan bags incorporate a means of attachment to the lower part of a pannier frame?

      Thanks,

      Ian.
    • Ian,

      We have always found that 'Tags' sewn on to panniers result in tags ripped off panniers as soon as there is any reall load applied ot a constant tugging or pulling.

      The Magadan panniers are designed to have a strap tied around the entire pannier and then around the frame. There are slots in the front and rear bottle holders which allow the strap to pass through to help hold everything in place.

      Hope that helps!

    • I like the look of these. Forgive my ignorance but is there an off the peg rack that I can buy to use on my 09 Tenere XT 660 Z? I see something in the picture ad for Kriega panniers but no links. Thank you for your help.
    • We recommend the use of rear luggage pannier racks like the Metal Mule units with traditional 'Hoop' luggage racks. They seem to work best with thiese panniers.

    • Interesting bags.....but
      In your description you said:
      <<< I decided to build a set for myself. I wanted bags that were capable of carrying a good 35 litres of stuff. The bigger the bags are, the more weight you can get down low>>>

      But answering someone's question:
      <<<What is the volume of each bag?
      The Magadan panniers are Approx 25 litres per side.>>>

      Why so small?
      And why not provide a complete product, include the PAC -Safe locking, and the extra straps to attach to a rack?

      It just seems you are almost there with the perfect product, but you are missing bits.


    • The bags roll down to less than 25 litres a side as they have a roll top. So, you can roll them down to carry a total of 35 litres or up to 25 litres per side for a maximum total of 50 litres.

      When we looked at providing the PAC Safe systems with the Magadan Panniers the UK importer of the PAC Safe systems wanted to charge us more to buy the locks than You could buy them from on Amazon! We simply couldn't sell the items without overcharging our customers.

    • do you have a outlet in the US?
      what would shipping be to the US?
    • I'm afraid we don't have an outlet in the USA. But, we do ship to the US almost every day and have a tracked courier servcie that we can follow from our warehouse to your door. Typical delivery times to the USA are 48 hours to the west coast.

      The price of the panniers sent to the USA will be £291 for the panniers (we remove UK sales tax when we ship outside the EU) and a shipping charge of £36.30 for a total of £291.67.

      Hope that helps.

  • From svsitt at 04/01/2013 17:29
    • How adjustable are the straps that go over the bike on these? I am looking at getting either two of the 1 or 2 gallon rotopax and was curious if these would fit over those. If this is not clear i am looking at mounting the rotopax to the soft luggage racks i have and then slinging these over the rotopax containers will this work?? thank you for you help.
    • svsitt,

      This question is very dependent on how wide the rear of your bike is. XT250 vs BMW1200GS. There should be enough strap length to hang the panniers over 2 rotopax on a smaller bike but you may struggle on a 1200GS with rear racks. That said, it is really easy to add extra length to the straps as they are designed to be variable in length using velcro.

      Hope that helps

    • Will you be offering other sizes. I'd like this type of solution but with about 50ltrs per side. We generally travel 2 up.

      My understanding is that the max size is currently 25ltrs per side.

      thanks dave
    • Hi dave,

      We wont be going any bigger with these bags and have no plans to make any different sizes. These are as big as we would dare go with a soft bag. Anything bigger and a you need to be looking for something more rigid.

      Hope this helps!

    • Would you toss us a picture of how these strap to a typical rack.

      What is typically used for straps and how do they mount.

      Thnaks,

      Jim
    • Hi Jim,

      try this link below to give a good setup from the 'father' of the bags, Walter Colebatch. Basically he has a strap horizontally around the bags and rack (through the hoops behind the bottle pouches), plus another one vertically for extra support.

      http://farm6.staticflickr.com/5238/7215385320_a34a599dbf_b.jpg

      The bags are designed with a fair few options for fixings. Each bike is different so getting the optimal fit for the bike/rack combo requires a bit of trial and error

      There are loads of images of these bags in use on Walter's epic thread from his ride this summer. There are a few relevant shots on the very first page

      http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=834987

      Chris Scott's post on his Adventure Motorcycling Handbook website also has some good shots and ideas...

    • When mounted on a KTM 950, do the straps interfere with the removal of the seat?
    • The straps do run over the rear of the seat, but are velcro and can be undone with the panniers in place for easy access (although you must redo the straps over the seat before riding).

      Hope that helps

  • From Bob J at 05/02/2013 18:47
    • I've been following these for some time and the finished product really looks good. I am interested to see how you compare these with the new Giant Loop Siskiyou panniers that are just hitting the market. It appears that they may hold a bit more, but are a lot more expensive.

      Thanks in advance.
    • Bob,

      The Siskiyou Panneirs are physically larger than the magadan panniers, stiffer and a very different shape (they can be used with or without rear racks. The magadan panniers are conversely smaller, lighter, and are a square section shape o be used with a traditional rack system. The Magadan panniers are also slash proof.

      Both are great sets of panniers. Which you choose depends on your personal preferenc/needs.

      Good luck!

    • Do you think these would work well with the wolfman racks? I like that they're smaller&lighter than traditional racks, but think they may mount the bags too high, being counter productive. if it helps these would be on a 01 Dakar
    • The Magadan panniers are designed to be used witha traditional 'square' hooped rack. I am aware of the wolfman racks and can't guarantee a perfect fit, although I am sure (as with most things) they could be adjusted to fit.

      I'm sorry I can't be of more help, but without racks and panniers in front of me its hard to be accurate.

  • From McGarrett at 17/02/2013 17:31
    • What should I look for in a strap to secure the bags to my racks? I understand the PacSafe option is good for "securing" them, but I also need something to secure them from moving and flopping around. Can't wait to use the bags on an adventure!
    • McGarrett,

      A simple 1 inch tape strap with a metal camlock buckle is usually the most popular solution. You can get these from any motorcycle shop that sells new bikes (the new models come tied down with them), or you can buy a good quality proprietary brand of strap such as Rok Strap.

      Hope that helps.

    • The panniers are designed to be used with single hoop racks such as Metal Mule or our own Adventure Spec racks. The Panniers could be made to work with the Jesse racks, but you would have to make modifications to level the racks surface onto a single plane.

  • From Rick Fielding at 21/04/2013 04:20
    • I'd like to know if the Magadans would work on a bike like the Moto Guzzi V7 Stone? My worry is that the bags may have too much height to remain off the pipes of the bike. Since the exhausts are not routed high like on typical adventure bikes the Hepco Becker racks I've seen don't seem to have the width to keep a soft bag away from the exhaust pipe. I suppose when I get the bike I can measure the distance from the seat to the exhaust and see if it is possible but if you have any experience with the V7 and these bags I'd love to hear it.
    • I'm afraid we don't have any experience fitting the magadan panniers onto Moto Guzzi V7 Stones, but we have provided the measurements of the panniers so that you can use them to compare with your bike.

    • Hi I really like the look of this product and am trying to decide between these and the giant Loop panniers.
      Can you tell me please , If the loops that you use to attach the pac safe wrap safe cables to the bike with , are also Kevlar protected , so as to stop them being cut away from the bike also .
      I am considering them for my Africa twin RD04 , will the panniers be safe enough away from the exhaust ?
      mark
    • Mark,

      The loops used to contain the pacsafe cables are Twaron filled to reduce the likleyhood of being cut. I can't comment upon the location of the panniers with respect to your exhaust as that very much depends how you mount them and which racks you are using.

    • Not a question, more an interesting observation that may relate to Dave who wanted bigger.

      Mags may measure up at 25L when you times L by W and H.

      But a flexible container will expand - so in fact I got 40L of water in my Mags before rolling up and clicking shut.

    • Any thoughts on how well these bags would mount against the DirtBagz racks? Here's a photo of the racks: http://www.dbzproducts.com/images/brackets1.jpg

      They are one of the few manufacturers of a rack that actually fits my bike (Husky TE610), so I'm trying to find waterproof bags that will work with them.
    • Paul,

      I used to run DirtBagz racks on my DRZ so I know them well. The Magadan panniers are designed to attach with a strap that runs around the outside of the bag and then around the back of the racks. In the case of DirtBagz racks they only provide 2 sides of the normal 'hooped rack' design (the base and the rear). If you can find a way to loop around the back of your racks where the forward part of the hoop would be then they panniers will work fine. Without that ability I'm afraid that whilst the panniers will sit perfectly you may struggle to attach the forward facing end.

      Hope that helps.

      I understand they're made for the "typical" square hooped racks... just wondering if you might have insight.

      Thanks
    • Brandon,

      The Rally Raid racks were specifically designed for use with the GIant Loop product ranges, in paticular the Coyote and the Great Basin bags. I think that they could be made to work with the Magadan Panniers, but may force then to sit slightly out of line (ie. tilted forwards). I have never tried fitting the Magadans toa set of RallY Raid pannier racks so I am afraid I don't have a definitive answer.

      Thanks for the question.

  • From Georgia at 23/09/2013 04:47
    • Hi,

      Do you need 2 Pacsafe cable locks? Eg one for both sides or just one? And what is the best length for the cable? Also because its fitted to a rack... do you need a heat shield plate for the exhaust side?
    • Georgia,

      Yes, you need two pacsafe locks, one for each side. The length of the lock depends on your pannier racks fitted to your bike. We recommend waiting for your panniers to arrive and using a piece of string to figure out the route of the lock cable on your own bike. You can then use this to figure out what size cable to buy.

      Again with the heat shield question it depends on your bike and exhaust pipe configuration. Most aftermarket exhuast pipes run reasonably cold, whereas for example: a typical KTM690 standard pipe has a catalytic converter inside and runs at crazy hot temperatures.

      We would recommend fitting your panniers and taking a look at how far they are from your exhaust end can and making a judgement on whether you think there is either a likleyhood of them touching or if the can gets hot enough to affect the panniers if they do. If so you will ned some kind of heat shield.

      Hope that helps.

  • From Trev at 23/09/2013 11:36
    • Seriously looking at getting a set of these bags but i have one question.
      Has anyone put a sharp knife to these bags to see if they really are slash proof?

      Cheers
    • Trev,

      Yes, we have, Otherwise we wouldn't call them slashproof! You can stab through the material with a very sharp point and if the material is held totally rigid in a frame it is possible to push in and cut with a LOT of effort. But, if the material is in situ and packed normally (i.e. there is some ability for the material to deflect and move slightly) then it resists repeated aggressive (we gave up after 20 goes) attemps to slash with a new Stanley knife blade or similar.

      In short, for someone expecting a slash and run hit, they are not going to get a thing. If someone has extended access to the bike (like any luggage) it will eventually fail.

      Hope that helps,

    • Hi,

      Very interested in a set of these bags, just trashed a set of metal in a crash. I live in the UAE but will be visiting NewYork in the middle of November. Can you ship there and what is the cost/delivery time? I will have them sent to the hotel.

      Thanks

      Bob
    • Hi Bob,

      We're in the UK, so shipping to the US or UAE will not be hugely different. We would rather not send to a hotel that is not in the UK (we do send to UK hotels quite regularly) as if there is a problem and the hotel won't receive it or the parcel misses you it will be a major problem. There may be delays caused as the bags will have to clear customs, which may be delayed as the parcel does not belong to the hotel.

      For shipping quotes use the 'estimate delivery' box at the bottom of the shoppping cart.

    • Hi!

      Another rack q.
      The top bar of my original pannier racks on my F800GS is not inline with the bottom one on the left side. Neither is the right one dead straight.
      Will this affect stability?
      I read that there's a stiffener inside so I guess they'd work, right?

      Thanks
    • Lukas,

      They will be fine. By the time you have your bike loaded it is very rarely evenly balanced, you just compensate for it without knowing. If there is an issue you'll soon learn to pack more heavily to one side if you need to. As an extreme example we have ridden with a single pannier before now and felt quite stable.

    • How much weight can each pannier carry?

      Our BMW F700GS are only fitted with the standard Vario pannier racks - what racks do you recommend for the Magadans?

      Many thanks!
    • Anne,

      No one has ever specificed or found a maximum weight for the pannier under given conditions. Obviously the more weight you put in them the shorter their life will be, but we have evidence of the panniers comportably carrying 40lbs per side for 10's of 1000's of miles without issue.

      The good thing about the Magadans is they they are not rack specififc. They only need racks to keep the bags off the exhaust, they do not realy on racks to support weight so they should work with almost anything. They were designed with a set of metal mule/touratech style racks.

      Hope that helps.

  • From Mike at 04/02/2014 03:47
    • I have some questions about mounting the bags to the metal frame.

      Firstly, apart from the loops around the outside pockets on each bag (to strap the bags horizontally around the frame), are there other loops situated elsewhere on the bag (e.g. on the inside of the bag), to also assist with securing each one to the frame?
      Secondly, in the photos I have seen, there is one loop situated around the top on the inside of each bag, which seems to assist with securing the bags vertically to the frame. Are there any other loops on the inside of the bag to assist with securing vertically ( I know there is a loop on the bottom of the bag also, for example)?
      Lastly, it seems as though there is provision for the use of only one vertical and one horizontal strap, used separately on each bag, to secure the bags to the frame (rather than be able to use two vertical and two horizontal straps per bag). Am I correct? Thankyou.
    • Mike,

      1. The only method to attach the bags to the frames are currently by the outer pocket loops (with the exception of the security tab loops).

      2. The tabs shown to the rear (and front) of each bag are to allow a security lock/cable to be used to secure the bags to the bike. They are not designed to accept permanent loads.

      3.There is provision for a single horizontal strap to secure the bags to the pannier racks.

      The straps you refer to do not hold the weight of the panniers, they are only designed to stop the panniers from swinging around and keep in general contact with the side racks. The weight of the bags is all taken from the straps passing over the top of the seat area.

      Hope that helps.

    • I gather that you supply metal racks to fit your bags. I have a 2013 DL 650 V-Strom.
      Could you tell me how much it would cost for the racks and two bags (and the inner bags) to be sent to Australia please?
    • Mike,

      We do not supply racks to work with our bags. We recommend either SW Motech or similar hooped rack products. The bags will be £291.67 plus £52.94 courier fees to ship directly from our warehouse to your door.

      Hope that helps.

    • Hi
      Very interested in the magadan panniers.
      What would the cost be shipped to Ontario,Canada?
      Thanks
      Ed
    • If you want to know the cost of any item shipped to any country please :

      1. Put the item into your shopping basket using the 'add to basket' symbol.
      2. Select 'View cart & Checkout'

      Once you do that you will see the price of the your items shipped to the UK including UK taxes BUT :

      3. Scroll down the page and add your country and postcode/zipcode to the 'Estimate Delivery Cost' system.
      4. Select 'Get a quote'
      5. Select the shipping option you want (there may only be a single option available).
      6. Select 'Update Total'

      At this point if you have chosen to ship outside the EU all UK taxes will be removed and the total provided for shipping and goods to the country and location of your choice.

      In the case of the Magadan Panniers to Canada this will be £336.66.

      Hope that helps.

    • Hello
      Very interested in the Magadans. Could you tell me if you have
      done a side by side comparison to the Wolfman Rocky Mountain bags for volume. Not interested in figures but whether they will hold More or Less or the Same Amount in volume.
      One other thing ,have you had any feedback from customers on extra charges when shipped to Canada aside from the shipping charges.
      Thanks
    • Tim,

      We haven't done any comparisons with our bags, but guru of all things Adventure Motorcycling and Desert Mr Chris Scott has very kindly done just tyhat one his website and also on the Horizons Unlimited forum.

      See : http://www.horizonsunlimited.com/hubb/equipment-reviews/comparison-adv-spec-magadan-enduristan-65899

      Canada have an import duty payable for soft luggage of approx 10% plus your countries VAT rate. We remove UK VAT (20%) when we ship outside the EU so you won't pay that twice.

      Hope that helps,

    • Hi,
      the Magadans are out of stock. I planned to make a trip with them in July. Is there a chance to buy them in next weeks?
      thanks, Pavel
    • Pawel,

      We are expecting stock in the next week. We have made modifications to the pannier and will be selling them under the name Magadan Pannier Mk2. As soon as they arrive you will see a new product on our shop. Standby!!!

    • What are differences between Mk1 and Mk2? And will the price be the same?
      Tks.
    • Anne,

      The Mki1 is no longer available. The Mk2 has uprated buckles and two lower attachment points in the bottom two corners of the panniers.

      I believe the prices will be the same.

      Hope that helps.

    • Hi,
      I have a terra 650 (two pipes)
      I was looking at using these bags with the evo quick lock racks.
      https://www.motorradgarage.com.au/side-carriers-quick-lock-evo-husqvarna-tr650-terra-strada-12-

      The bottom bar of the hoop seems to sit a lot higher than say the metal mule pictures I have seen.

      how do you think these panniers would sit with the evo rack?
      would the bottom inside of the bag have no support?

    • Dreww,

      Looking at the pannier racks I think the Magadans will be fine. They are slightly rigid and the main support for the bags is 1/2 way down the back plate so I don't think you'll get much movement once the bags are in place.

    • Just received my Panniers. Quality throughout . Very impressed. Only complaint is the fact that you can,t load the dry bags and then fit them in the panniers on the bike.
      Any chance a slightly smaller drybag would be available in the future to eliminate the only negative with these panniers.
    • Tim,

      Normally we pack our drybags and then squeeze the air out of them to make them smaller so that they fit into the outer comfortably, but we can see your point. You cannot fill the inner bags to capacity and then slide them neatly into the outers. We have just upgraded the panniers to a Mk2, so we'll put a drybag mod on the list for the Mk3! Many thanks for the comments.

    • Are the Lifeventure Sliding Cable Lock the proper length for a KTM 990 with touratec racks?
    • Hi Mike,

      They're not specifically lengthed, but there will be plenty to wrap around the bags and then somewhere around the racks on either side

    • Hi there....I have a BMW F 800 GS / 2012 And although I am very impressed with the bags I am still doubtful if they will fit with my original pannier rack from the manufacturer....specially on the left side with the exhaust pipe and the heat generated.
      Your comment will be greatly appreciated
      Best regards
      Giancarlo
    • Giancarlo,

      Many of our customers ride F800GS's with Magadan panniers. We have never fitted them ourselves to a bike with a BMW rack though so we can't be 100% sure.

      Sorry about that.
