I originally wanted to put an inner tube and tire repair stuff... but a tube wont fit, so i got some tools, some bungee straps, if you are real creative you can stuff a cargo net in there for those impulse purchases you make then realize you rode your bike to the store. I got my insurance card in there... I try to keep it lite...

I bought a two each of the large and the small from Agrisupply to save on shipping. I used the large mounted with 5/16 U-clamps that I fashioned to fit. Round is not quite as effecient as a rectangle for my needs so I am looking for a box that will fit my sockets mounted on a rail with hex head bits on a rail inserted into the working part of the sockets . About 4''by2'' by 12''

So what have you done with the holes in the official agri-supply operators manual tubes? I mounted them on my top case as seen below, and will be using them for fuel storage. The holes are on the mount-side, and I assume it would not be ideal for water to get in. Any reason not to seal them?

Pics:








I wanted to paint them like rocket boosters, but that sounded like work. Decided on the Buell pegasus instead. Anyway, holes: sealed? Unsealed? Also, loving the reflective tape idea.

Sweet, thanks. Also, any idea if storing the fuel canisters sideways will be a bad idea? Spillage potential? This occurred to me after I had drilled and mounted them to my topbox...

Good call on adding a dab to keep it water tight

Tool tube on an XR400

Here is my set up, welded a bracket to the subframe, used a 3.5" muffler strap, and added a cable and lock.

I was with you until....

Nice job with the custom welded bracket!

However, you lost me with the clunky Master Lock and the cable. I don't have mine locked up with my tool roll in there, and I've never had a issue with theft.

I say forget the lock!
