You may find welding rod tubes in a couple of sizes at many farm stores, Home Depot, Lowes, etc. Similar tube with o-ring seal for under $10.

Great idea and if it was made by Touratech or BMW it would cost about $100.

Keep us posted on the mounting.

Direct LINK to get the $4.99 tube.

That just may be the best one I've seen yet.

Nice find... Much easier than trying to cobble up all the PVC bits... I just ordered one before all you fookers make a run on them and clean this place out. $4.99 + $7 to ship to CA.... I'm sure it'll mount right up on the inside of my left Motech rack frame...

Tool tube mounted on a 2007 R1200GS

I just mounted Agri Supply's tool tube last night on an 2007 R1200GS. The tool tube is mounted just right above the rear brake reservoir (Make sure it doesn't pinch the brake line!) located on the right side of the GS. These are the materials that I used.
  1. 2x - 1" Insulated clamps (Home Depot)
  2. 2x - 1/4" x 1-1/2" Stainless steel cap screw button - socket (Needs to be the button type so that the cap can clear the screw) (Home Depot)
  3. 6x - 1/4 Stainless steel nylon locking nuts (Home Depot)
  4. 6x - 1/4 Stainless steel flat washers (Home Depot)
  5. 2x - 1" Bicycle tubing cut in the diameter the size of the insulated clamp (Used to fill in the slight gap on the insulated clamp (Free at your local bicycle store - found mine in the trash!).
