KLR Trans Tak Bag

Here is my issue and it's with the disappointment I had with the KLR Trans Tank Bag. Right out of the box the tank bra portion of it was stitched too tight to the point that i was worried about it breaking. The gas cap hole was not round anymore but a huge oval shape that I could fit two gas caps in the spot.

On the first try zipping the bag to the bra the zipper tape failed. Another KLR rider put almost the same exact picture up on Amazon for his review of the bag.

 Look how the end of the zipper is going away into the corner of the bag.

 Then the zipper on the bag side was such low quality that when I pulled it across to close it, the starting point opened up and came undone to the end point. It completely failed on the first try. As a safety issue this could be really bad on a ride with the zipper failing and the bag falling off to the side and interfering with the steering.

 I returned this and let Kawasaki know my issues with this and I have zero expectations of them caring at all.
