Has anyone ever lost any linq items or more specifically the gas tank? I stopped to show my buddy where we were on the map that I layed across my seat and linq gas tank. I folded my map put it in my pocket and my buddy took off down the trail when we got to the next stop sign about 5 miles down the trail I noticed my gas can was gone the trail was pretty bumpy bit still can't believe it would cause it to break loose. I tried to find the tank on the side of the trail but couldn't find it has anyone ever had this happen?

No issues w/mine. I have 2500 miles, most of which were toting a full tank, including some VERY rough whooped trails. We're the brackets still attached?

Your post caught my eye because I was looking at mine and was amazed that the little tab that slides under the linq bracket can keep the 25ish pounds attached through some pretty rough bouncing. Sorry for your "loss". I'd be pretty bummed too!

The little tab that slides under is very strong. My worry has always been the spring loaded mechanism. Seemed weak to me, which is why when I built my rack, instead of using 2 mechanisms, I made a tab to slide under the linq brackets. Much stronger and I've hauled 7.5 gallons of gas on the rack down a bumpy trail.

Contact the grooming ennty for that trail you lost it on . if they find it in the spring they can return it to you . Just a chance .......most likely that jug went a ways of the trail with all that weight and puffed under the powder .

Last year I was looking at buying the linq system for an xp I just bought. I did a lot of searching through reviews and seen that it's not common but it does happen more than it should. I ended up going with the powderkeg and have no regrets after 2000 miles.

I bought this bag specifically so I can carry my DSLR in there. My camera gear that I planned on bringing cost roughly what the sled did! If that Linq bag breaks free and I lose my gear I am gonna be slightly cross...

The plastic piece on the bottom of the jerry that slides under the linqs on the tunnel broke on mine. It was from ice build up after powder days. I was able to glue it back together with some lock tight. I only carry it on days I need it now. No problems with my bag so far.
