    When I bought my Norge it had a Famsa tank bag on it. I took it off the first day I brought it home but unfortunately didn't pay much attention to how it attached. The back section is a no brainer, going around the tank bolt under the seat. But the forward mounting is throwing me for a loop (pun intended). Does anyone have one and/or knowledge on how it mounts to the front? I don't see anything under there that it would attach to or anywhere that the straps will reach back around to the buckles.
    Thanks!

    Look at the two offsets that the coil packs are attached too. You will find that the two plastic pieces for the front strap attach to them. I don't have a picture, but if you crouch down in front of the bike and look at the coil pack on each side, you will see the offset I am referring to.

    So therein lies my problem. I do not have the little plastic pieces!

    Stop the presses, I found what you were referring to! Thanks so much. The pieces I lost were only strap retainers so it looks like I'm good to go. I would never thought to look there!
    Thanks again!

    You are more than welcome. When I installed mine on my Norge - it actually took awhile to figure out where the front straps attached. Once I figured it out it was, 'well of course that's where they go'..but it was not clear from the instructions (at least to me).

    Glad you got it sorted out.
