Thoughts, anyone? Thanks!
True that. Specifically 1150GSA stock aluminum panniers

I strapped a 1 gallon on top of my BMW Adventure luggage. I used kayak straps. They hold tight.

2 GAL on L-bracket

I need to carry a couple extra gallons of fuel on an upcoming off highway trip and was thinking of trying a 2GAL rotopax on an upright L-Bracket mounted on my rear rack. That should still allow room for my sleeping bag, tent and chair on the rack. Anyone done this? 2 Gal ~14LB, is a single L-bracket strong enough?

Got my rotopax in today and that L bracket is no joke. I have not mounted it yet but its not some cheap junk, I think it will stand up to a lot.

These cans and mounts are totally bitchin' . People routinely assume it's a fancy stock setup on the Ural.



Jason - I'm taking a trip through the swell later this month, so I should have some glamour shots for you when I get back.

Once you get it mounted could you post a picture?

H/B gobi boxes

Has anybody mounted these to the KTM gobi boxes on the rear? Will the plastic boxes hold up to that kind of weight?

I am considering the same on My 800 GS with the Gobi bags. Would be hard to get the bolts through both halves of the case so that you could still get to the rear lock.. Here is my Mock up.... They would be mounted level and straight with the front of the bags. Know they weight is back on the bike but would not be in my way. Would put a piece of heat resistance material on the side of the 1 GAl near the exhaust. will check with a temperature guage to see what heat is really there. Never impacted my Gobi bags before so think that it will be OK for these. (except they hold Gasoline )



From the back provides additional color and visibility.

Yep, that's what i'm thinking. Maybe putting a piece of aluminium on the inside to help spread the weight.

Got my storage boxes and 1 gals this week. Prototyped up a couple of mount plates out of PE...





I was planning on having the plates made up in aluminum, but my fab guy says I'm nuts. He says the PE is better to fall on, plenty strong, and less likely to crack than aluminum and will hold up better if I fall on it. We'll see...

Ugly, though, but for $3 each I can do ugly.

I picked up two 1gals and a 1 gal water jug. Excellent quality!!!

I plan on strapping each to a side pannier but am wondering if anyone knows of a mounting kit that is ready-to-go that can easily mount with the F800GS OEM top box. I'm thinking of a mounting plate that goes under the top case mount and mounts to so that it can be used with or without the topbox and the L brackets would come out on each side of the topbox and have locking rotopax mounts. I don't want to drill into the top box and do not have the tools or knowledge to do the project myself.

Has anyone already done this?

Bought two of the one gallon cans earlier this year. Love them. I carry both when I'm on my 950 adventure, and one when I'm on my TE510.

One can fits perfectly flat on the pro moto billet rack, and I use two Rok Straps to secure it. Crash tested with no movement or leaking.
