Magnetic Axio tank bag on a 950 ST

I ended up with a free Axio tank bag for use on my '01 ST and I'm looking for suggestions on how to mount this. I have the tail bag and I really like it once I figured out how to mount it. It's a little small which works for commuting and local cruising and I leave it on at all times. The tank bag is much bigger and I would like to use it for any trips I take, but otherwise it will be in the garage. Anyone have experience with mounting this magnetic tank bag on a 955 ST?

I have a tank bag I bought last year that is magnetic but also has tie straps.
I leave the straps on the bike all the time and tuck them out of site if not using the bag.

After much searching, head scratching, playing with straps, etc. I think I've reached a solution to mounting my Axio tank bag. Best solution seems to be to buy the saddle and straps used to mount the OEM tank bag. Of course this part is on back order and I have to wait till I receive it to verify it will work

Options for using the saddle are to use it as is and to mount the bag to it with velcro which may actually already be in place. Or the other option is to take the straps off and see if I can attach them directly to the hooks on the Axio bag. The saddle was less than $20 so that isn't bad considering the Axio bag was free. There are a couple of "clips" that cost extra and I'm not sure what they do. Anybody have the OEM tank bag for a 955 and know what function these serve?
