  • Sled:2021 900 Enduro

Posted 20 November 2020 - 03:44 PM

Hey guys I'm looking for some advice. I recently put a deposit down on a new 900 Enduro and am trying to figure out some luggage. I have been riding Yamaha for the last 25 years so this is my first time using LINQ accessories. What is everyone's opinion on the 21L bag? It appears to have a roll up liner that maybe a pain to get into day trips but appreciated on over nighters? I was thinking about the 40L but thought it would be way to big on the day rides when all you pack is a lunch. I did like the way it closed up better though. I do a few overnighters and usually one 3 nighter per year.

Has anyone used both? what's your preference?

appreciate the advice!

SR 21 bag is awesome for overnighters! I usually do 3 to 5 day saddle bag trips and that bag holds all my clothes. Its also a dry bag so everything stays dry and because it is semi rigid, you can pack a lot of stuff in the bag. I agree with u that with the design of the dry bag its a pain to open on the trail but its still rather easy and not a huge issue. In terms of day rides and holding snacks etc.. take a look at the linq sport bag. 17L which is perfect for day rides. My setup has always been to use the sr21 for clothes and sport bag for snacks day trips etc. Just my two cents!

I love the SR21 bag.  I think it's one of the better looking bags, and holds enough for a overnighter or 2.  The liner is not a pain at all, quite easy to access and keeps out the snow.  Works great on top of the stackable gas caddy as well.

SR 21 combined with either a seat bag and/or glove box extension will handle most any multi day trip needs.

My 2 cents is.... that the beauty of the LINQ system is that it is so easy to change accessories, why not get them both.  I know there not cheap, but maybe get the 40L this season, and then get the 21L next season.  Or maybe even think about pairing the 21L with the 11L trail seat bag.     I have the 17L sport bag and the 11L trail seat bag that I leave on my 2020 renegade all the time.  But when I sold my 2015 back country, I held onto the picnic basket LINQ bag I had on that machine, as it is a little bigger.  On days I need a max amount of storage, I can throw on the picnic basket, and i am good to go.  Unlike what ever storage you may have had on your Yamaha, that may have been strapped, riveted, or screwed down, and would require installation and tools to change, here you just pop one off and put the other one on.  

 

The beauty of the Linq system is how modular it is.  I guess what I am saying is that your dilema is an easy one to have.  If what you decide on does not work for you, throw it on craiglist and sell it, and buy the other bag.  I guarantee it will take you longer to list the bag on craigslist than it does to install your new LINQ bag on your sled.   LOL.

I ran a sr 21 for 3 seasons, just moved to a deep snow pro bag. New bag is TRUELY waterproof, and 10l bigger. But the thing I like the most is the new bag is Yellow inside, making things inside visible. That little opening on the sr coupled with the dark color makes finding anything in it difficult.

Have had the sr21 bag for 2 years, absolutely love it. Also had the link semi rigid bags medium and large for many years since they came out, sr21 all the way. What I especially like is a low profile the looks and the fact when I put it on top of my fuel caddy it keeps the center of gravity down. Minimal as that may be. Never had one Speck of snow inside of it. Unlike my other two semi-rigid bags where it would leak by the zippers. I had my doubts about the rolling you need to do when you close it but not an issue to me

I’ve had the sr21 bag for over 2 years now, and love how much room there is. Also if for some reason you need just a little more space the strap is adjustable and you can squeeze some more vertical space out of it.

I have two of the picnic style 17L bags and also the stackable fuel caddy. I like how high the 17L bags are. I’ve thought about the sr21 but haven’t pulled the trigger on it. I did how ever buy the seat saddle bags for a long extended trip to pack extra clothes in. Here’s my setup with the two 17L bags and fuel caddy. The one sits high and this is where having the sr21 would be nice. 3bf49d46a91c6d1d593a51257074b9e4.jpg

Love the SR21!  The dry bag inside is great, never had anything get wet or snow on them inside even on those powdery-snow days.  I don't find the drybag a pain to open/close quickly.

I use the 21L  for 5 day trips.  Works well and is just big enough for clothes and essentials.  Folding pants and shirts neatly is a must to lay them in the bag flat. Everything stays dry and the flexible top cover is great. I use ziploc freezer bags to contain smaller items. Another inch or so in height would be nice but it works well as is.

I like my SR 21, used it for 4-5 day backpacks with no issues. It’s not 100% waterproof, but does fairly well. If I was in the market for a new bag I would seriously look at a 40L dry bag, they have a ton of room and are really nice. Can go from basically nothing up to 40L by just rolling it down.

I run with the 40L and 21L on my Renegade. Depends what you need to get through your trip if backpacking to multiple spots.

How does the 40L attach, is it a Linq setup?

The 40l dry bag is a linq bag. The older 40l isn’t.
