Reckless 40 v3 perfect fit on my Beta 390 RR S

Thank you Moskomoto for an awesome product! Used my new R40 on a recent weekend camping trip and it managed to carry all I needed for my outing. Sturdy steady and unnoticeable both on and off road riding. I purchased both the stinger 8 and 22 with my R 40 to give me flexibility. The stinger 22 gave me just that extra space to bring a few more items for my 3 day trip. Highly recommend their product to any adventure seeker!

Hey JT,

We appreciate the kind words! The R40 combined with the Stinger 8 and Stinger 22 really increases the flexibility of the system so it covers a wider range of riding situations.

Love the product

I just recently received the r 40 and absolutely love the fit. I have a 2022 ktm 500 excf six day. The quality of these bags is outstanding and I also have the r 80 that I had on the ktm. I put a true north rack on bike and have plans for 8 day rides. The r 80 is a little big on the 500 but with the rack it worked and I had plenty of room for all my camping gear. The r 80 was just a little big for everyday rides. Also when I got the r 80 the r 40 was on back order. When the r 40 finally was available I bought them. The r 40 fits a lot better on the bike but then I noticed a big difference in sizing. I’m still using the stinger 20 and everything fits. Thanks so much to everyone at mosco moto. Keep up the great work

Hey Michael,

Thanks for taking the time to leave us a review.

We're seeing more and more riders opt to purchase the Reckless 40l with the Stinger 22 for the extra little bit of storage but still maintaining a smaller profile on smaller sized bikes. The Reckless 40l with a Stinger 8l or Stinger 22l is hard to beat!

You Will Not Be Disappointed!!

Sold my Touratech panniers and purchased the Reckless 40 3.0 with both the 8L and 22L tail bag combination on the recommendation of a friend and fellow adventure rider. Very impressive rackless system with a versatile, creative, and well thought out fitment process complemented by materials and craftsmanship that are second to none. Looking forward to many years of use as it is obvious this system will stand the test of time. You will not be disappointed.

Hey Alan,

Thanks for taking the time to leave us a review!

Looks like the Reckless 40l fits your bike like a dream. The flexibility of being able to use the Stinger 8l or the Stinger 22l depending on your needs is a game changer.

Reckless 40L V3 for dualsport

I won't be worry about any stuff fall off my bike anymore.
It has been through a lot of heavy rain lately and the product keep everything dry.
Love the design and the strap is convenient to put on the motorbike.
I put the product on WR250R. 40L is perfect for my bike.

Hey Sereyboth,

Looks like the Reckless 40 fits your WR250R perfectly! Glad it's doing it's job of keeping all your stuff dry.

Reckless 40 and Pico tank bag is worth every penny.

Installed this on my 2022 KTM 500 EXC-F and it fits perfectly. I have only been on 2 weekend camping trips so far this year but I am so far more than satisfied with the fit and finish of both. Quality is above par and I expect these will hold up to the riggers of dual sport life for a very long time. For a dual sport and minimalist camping set up, it works quite well. The Pico tank bag is just as reviews state, small but a bigger bag would hinder movement to much for my liking. If you have realistic views of what you plan to take on your trip and size it for your bike, Mosko has the set up for you.

Hey John,

Sounds like you have an awesome set up to travel light and fast on your KTM 500 EXC-F. Hopefully you'll be able to put it to the test on your upcoming trips!

Reckless 40L (V3.0)

The Reckless 40L (V3.0) is a rackless pannier/duffle system that easily mounts on pretty much any motorcycle. We designed this bag for day trips on larger bikes, Baja-style hotel-hopping, or overnight camping from a smaller bike. The Reckless 40 is 100% waterproof, with three separate removable welded-seam drybags that slide/strap into an outer harness, which stays attached to the bike.

For the ultra-minimalist camper (i.e. bivy sack, summer-weight bag, freeze-dried food), this is an awesome way to turn your trail bike into a mini adventure bike and use it to access hard-to-reach backcountry spots like lakes and hot springs. For hotel-hoppers on trail bikes, you can easily fit a change of clothes, a pair of pack shoes, tools and tubes, a warm jacket, and your dop kit. The R40 is also an excellent day ride bag that can live on your bike full time.

(Download Assembly Instructions here.) 

V3.0 adds a number of important upgrades. The width of the harness is now adjustable, with one setting for enduro and trail bikes, and a second setting for wider dualsport and adventure bikes. The beavertail on the center harness is removable, plus we added an expansion panel on the beavertail to accommodate a larger tailbag like the Stinger 22L Tailbag. We changed the construction of the leg harness, replacing sewn seams with rivets, to reduce the risk of seam separation in a crash. Also, the three-piece design makes the harness much easier to repair, plus you can replace components individually. We also changed the design of the mounting straps and most major buckles, to make them easier to replace/repair in the field.

The Reckless 40 includes three waterproof roll-top drybags, that can be easily accessed throughout the day. You don't have to mess with the holster attachment straps to get to food, clothes, or tools. The side drybags have clear panels on the front, so you can tell which bag has what you need, and they have stiffeners in the back to reduce movement while riding and make it easier to slide into the holster. They also have webbing handles at the bottom, so they can be pulled into the holster from the bottom.

The default center tailbag on the Reckless 40 is our Stinger 8L Tailbag. It turns into a backpack with mesh straps that unfold from inside the bag, in case you want to go for a day hike or run into town for errands. The Stinger 8 also has 4 sewn-on connection straps with matching ladder locks, so it can be rigged as a standalone fender bag, tail bag, or pannier topper. To expand the capacity of your Reckless 40, you can replace the Stinger 8L Tailbag with a Stinger 22L Tailbag. The Stinger 22’s larger dimensions are great for bulkier items, like a sleeping bag in a stuff sack.

The Reckless 40 has sewn-on rear pockets on both sides, which are perfect for storing fuel bottles, water, tools, and tubes. On top, the R40’s removable beavertail is a great spot to tuck a motorcycle jacket when it’s not in use, or to store wet or dirty things - like a tent fly, towel, or campsite garbage. The beavertail is removable, so you can take it off when you don’t need it, and it can be rotated to run either parallel or perpendicular to the bike. On the top of the beavertail and front of the leg holsters, there are MOLLE panels so you can customize the harness with various MOLLE accessories.

The Reckless 40 includes one Cleat Kit, which can be bolted to the rear fender of the bike, providing a convenient lash point for the rear connection straps. For a more permanent and secure mounting option, you can also drill directly through the harness and mount it directly to the rear fender (this will not void your warranty).

Please Note:

a) Every Reckless 80 and Reckless 40 comes with an included heat shield. Please use the heat shield! Exhaust and exhaust heat burns are not covered by your warranty. Before you leave for your trip, we recommend checking and double checking that no part of the bag or your bike's plastics are contacting the exhaust. On dual-exhaust bikes or bikes with especially high/exposed pipes, you will need a second heat shield, which is available for purchase in the 'Hardware & Parts" section of our website. When installing the Reckless system on your bike, please make sure the exhaust is not blowing directly on the bag. In general, make sure the bag is not touching or close to extreme heat; go physically around the bag daily, cinch it tight, and make any necessary adjustments.

b) The Reckless 80 and Reckless 40 were designed for rugged riding. They have a durable hypalon and ballistic nylon backing that can rub against the plastic parts of the bike, resulting in minor abrasion. Please take precautions if you do not want your bike parts marred by placing a clear adhesive sheet to where abrasion may occur on your motorcycle. Some examples of protective products are listed below.We suggest taking a short test ride with protection applied and with a loaded Reckless installed on the bike to assure satisfactory results.

Allstar Performance Tape

3M Polymask Protective Tape

c) There are many "wear points" on the Reckless system that are different on every bike. See this video for examples. These could be on the bottom of the bag - where the harness touches the bike or luggage rack - or on the drybags themselves, where they contact the harness, tent poles, or other items. After your first day or two of riding, please inspect the bags carefully, identify high-friction wear points, and either remedy the friction or apply a sacrificial 'patch' that can be periodically replaced before the bag itself is damaged. In particular, it is normal for the fabric on the bottom of the harness to show wear, and this does not affect the structural integrity of the bag nor its waterproofing.

 

  • If friction causes the fabric on the bottom of your bag to wear through, this is not a big deal.There is a hard plastic plate inside the Reckless harness that will prevent the friction from reaching your drybags, and thereby affecting the functionality of the system. Fabric, vibrating under pressure between the hard plastic inside the harness and a hard metal bike part, will eventually wear out. To prevent this, apply a sacrificial patch to the wear point, or apply some padding on the bike.

 

  • If your connection straps are wrapping around a sharp metal edge, for example on a bag mounting cleat, foot peg, or luggage rack, and the straps begin to show signs of wear, it is critical to address the wear before the strap is too far worn to use. Either file/grind the sharp edge, or apply (and maintain) a sacrificial 'sleeve' for the webbing made from fabric, additional webbing, or duct tape. A sharp metal edge vibrating under pressure will eventually wear through webbing, sometimes quickly. If this occurs, take some extra webbing to a local sewing shop and they should be able to easily repair the damage.
