    The dimensions of the hoop for the second set is 12 inches wide and 9-1/2 inches high on the outside . Works perfectly.

    Oh cool. I thought I read you say that the wolfman bags needed 9" at most...

    Hi all!

    Long time lurker...

    I have these bags on my DR650 and they are indestructable. Totally waterproof, dust proof, idiot proof.

    I've thrown my DR down dirt roads and the bags just laugh.



    There's a cool mod that involves your bags and a couple wastebaskets. Keeps the bags strong even when empty.



    Google 'Wolfman wastebasket mod'. BigDog explains it in his WR250R mods list.

    Welcome and thanks for posting up. I have these bags on my KLR and love them. I did the wastebasket mod from BigDogs site last February. It makes the bags really easy to load and unload. The wastebasket fits very snug inside the saddle bag. The drawback is that when your bike falls over/crashes there is no "give" and the bags can tear/rip open. So I started looking for an alternative. I now have removed the wastebaskets and replaced them with fold top dry bags that fit inside perfect. They are Exped Fold Dry Bag BS, emerald green in color, size XL. Got 2 from Clavey Paddlesports for $19 each. Totally waterproof. Just open the saddlebag and pull out the dry bag. No more fumbling around and looking for an item while on the bike. Grab it and go works great for setting up camp in the rain or hiting the hotel. I got the idea when I saw another KLR rider pull out his black garbage bag from the saddle bag and then a v strom rider open his side pannier and pull out his liner bag. Can't go wrong with the Wolfman products they are top notch. Capt D.

    Rhodetrip, thank you so much for this informative thread!

    You helped me decide to pull the trigger on Tinman's brackets, you helped me get them installed after I bought them, and you helped me pick out which soft bags to buy when the 20lbs apiece ammo cans I first mounted up proved to be miserably heavy!

    Went with the black Wolfman Expedition Dry Bags myself, and after a short test ride I love 'em!







    Not as much capacity as the big ol' ammo cans for sure, but the reduction in weight of the luggage alone is going to make riding on those longer trips so much better! I could prolly stand to lean up my camping kit anyhow, so I've got no complaints.

    The only issue I can see with my setup is the hassle of unhooking the cross-straps with my topbox bolted in place. I managed to get the rear strap snaked through, snapped, and tightened down underneath the Action Packer, but that was a chore and getting it unhooked was worse. Probably not a huge issue though, as I tend to leave my luggage in place.

    Anyhow, many thanks to Rhodetrip for this thread, Tinman for these brackets, and Wolfman for these bags!

    Here is a link to BigDog's mod thread. The "wastebasket" mod is nearer the end at the 7-9-12 update just before August 2012. Hope this helps. Has pictures too!

    I don't use Wolfman bags, but I cut off the top of large plastic kitty litter containers and use them as inserts in my saddlebags similar to the wastebasket mod to help keep my saddlebag form. The kitty litter plastic looks thinner than the wastebasket plastic. Lot's of options for saddlebag inserts as far as size is concerned. Good luck.

    i used wolfman on my summer trip and they worked great.


    darn tough, this pic is the result of laying the bike down at 25- 30 mph.


    tim knows the dimensions for these panniers, and makes his racks to fit them when you tell him that's what you have.
