More specifically here is the cannisterectomy
I tried reusing the stainless straps from the cannister mount with some rubber strips to hold an MSR fuel bottle directly, but they quickly broke from offroad pounding as they are just way too thin. I have been 2 years now on my Tool Tube setup
with some simple brackets I made and it has held up fine, better than expected actually. Well worth the money. Also carry a 5' clear plastic siphon tube, you can take off a side panel and store it under the faux gas tank cover above the airbox (along with a 19" spare tube for your tire inside of a Tyvek bag (free from the US Postal Service)).
