Gas Can Mount

HellSickle, here is a close up photo of the gas can on the left side. It is your basic 5 litre plastic gas can that you can buy just about anywhere. I got two of them at Canadian Tire. I have one on each side. Nothing fancy about how they are mounted. They are held on by two web straps. One runs under the passenger footpeg, up inside the footpeg brace, around the gas can through the handle. This strap is held in place under the footpeg by two sided velcro straps looped around the footpeg. The second strap runs around the forward bar of my Happy Trails pannier rack and through the handle. I have traveled over 10,000 kms with the gas cans strapped to the bike this way without a problem, even over some very rough roads. I only fill them when I need the 500 km range the additional 10 litres of fuel gives me. Also, there is no interference with my size 12 riding boots. Cheers, David

Thanks David!

On our previous trip to BC I was on a KLR with 250-300 mile range. I only expect ~180 miles or so on the 990. I might look into a slightly larger can for each side. I might experiment with ~2 gallon.

BTW, nice looking bike . Have you considered painting the cans a KTM orange?

(not affiliated) if you're looking for something similar, but more substantial (less prone to falling off), BestRest Products makes something called the PegPacker which looks to be a bit more stable than just two webbing straps.

Yep. Looks like the Overland 60 system.

Hi Chad, stop in around the end of Feb, we should have a set in the shop.

It's the Kriega Overland 60 with the optional RotopaX kit on the other side of the bike.
I chose this setup to save a few pounds as compared to hard cases.

Give me a heads up. If I'm not on my way to FL or back, it would be great to meet up.
