Default ZR 137 room for tunnel bag

I have an 18 ZR 6000 137, and I was talking with sled solutions about tunnel bags. He asked me what the distance is between the tail light and the back of the seat. My sled is a couple hours away in storage - anyone know how much space is there? I suppose I'd leave the little bag on there to hold a belt and some oil but don't need to. Thanks.

I have the sled soloutions bag. I will take a picture for you. It does not mount well to a 137/129 unless you bolt the plastic tray to the tunnel or use a white out mount. I don’t think you would be able to get into that little bag. The other issue is the back of the 137 tunnel is not deep enough to get the straps tight enough to hold the bag down

Here you go. The bag is not actually mounted. As you can see the tunnel is not deep enough to pull the straps down to hold the bag tight. You will have to use a hard mount kit of some sort. What I do is take the bag out of the plastic tray, then bolt the tray to the tunnel, then re install the bag in the tray. Then when you mount the straps there will be just enough pull to hold the bag in the tray. Note the lower strap is not the correct one. It is the only thing I had for reference. The other 1/2 is still on my other sled. They are about the same length. The sled soloutions bag is nicer than any cat bag I have ever had or seen.

I will also not on the 137 you will still be able to get into that little bag on the sled. On 129 you can’t

The Linq system works great on the 137" with the White Out mounting brackets. Took bag off just behind the seat.

I like the option of stacking the 4 gallon fuel tank and the bag.

The White Out Technologies mounting brackets are spendy but are made of high quality material.

And the bags have a small BRP symbol with the Linq symbol doesn't have Bombardier on them anymore.

They are spendy but nick makes a nice system. I am trying to find a better way to mount my sled soloutions bag instead of blasting a bunch of holes in the top of the tunnel for bolts.

Thanks for the pics! Do you happen to know which bag that is? If not I'll ask Paul at sled solutions. Looks like they also sell some brackets for mounting.
