One guy on here sold his Leggero belt covers because he bent a valve doing this.
In a way, those open belts are art in motion... but I'm not doing it.

I knew a guy who sort of did the rag thing oiling his chain while it was in gear on the center stand... his career as a movie critic is, sadly, over because I... errr, HE... can only give 1.5 thumbs up. Just saying.

The only hassle is installing a plate below the frame, after that the bars have a quick release mechanism, they're just a click away from installing/removing. The thing with the ones adjusted with a strap is that if you don't attach them thoroughly they might end scraping the tire or the exhaust (it happened to me) So this system is like plug and play, they just wont move with the bar in place. (therefore, lazy friendly) Here's the link if you're interested.

Also a picture of the support plate once installed, it's barely noticeable.

And, it's 300 + shipping.

Not sure if there are available for the 796 tough.

Here's a picture of the Blaze model on my bike, you can keep the backseat cowl if you want to.

Much, much appreciated Nomad, cheers !

So, i take it they were about 500-ish $ ? Also, can you have a pillion with them installed ?
Still, i don't know buddy, i'm so friggin' lazy these days that even putting/removing those bars sounds like a hassle

I've seen some saddlebags that don't need bars and you just secure them via a central lower strap (that goes under the tail section) - i think they were made by Givi...Still, don't know how secure they'll be so...

Thanks anyways friend

savaship I have Olgio throwovers for my 796 on long trips. I solved the exhaust problem initially with the $20 Amy Tracker silicone standoff mod. I have since taken the wraps off the exhaust and use a high temperature silicone baking sheet that I cut a slit in and cut to shape, and thread them through the throwover's strap. They stay nicely between the bags and exhaust. gone many a mile with no issues that way.

Sorry, no pics with the Oglio's. The straps fit better onto the brackets than the Easybags. I had to fuss with the Easybag straps and improvise a bit. Since I got the brackets used, I'm in to the entire set-up w/bags for $229. If going with this bracket arrangement be aware that there are two components needed: the T681 and also the 7400KIT. And then the bags.
I wondered about the knobs... and the open belts. You ever get a chunk-a-munk in the exposed timing belts?

Thanks for the info on the Oglios...
