The tool tube is an agircultrual supply tractor operating instrcution holder. Can buy them at mnay various ag sites, or from vendors in the vendor section. Many discussions on how to mount. From hose clamps and nuts /blots. To aluminum angle section and hose clamps. Or auto exhuast clamps. Do a search for Tool Tube here in ADV and you will have reading matterial for a month.
I have limited fabrication skills and tools to bend an aluminum plate---can i see a close up of your tool tube mount? just clasp pipe hangers bolted to the tool kit mounts?

He used a couple of straps, but you can use an exhaust band clamp:

Most of the aluminum bracket jobbies are made from pre bent aluminum angle. The angle is bolted to the stock tool tube mounting location and a few slots cut in the angle aright at the bend to slot hose clamps through it. Doing this way postiions the tube in a better location.

With mine I jsut used two hose clamps through the tol box mount large holes. Then I bolted one of the tube's mounting ears to the threaded hole on the helmet lock mount (the weird looking tab on the plate holder bracket). The other mounting ear I use to have bolted to the back side of the battery box. However the tire woudl rub it, so I hacked it off. THe problem with mounting it this way is that the lid rubs the fender slightly, the threads of the cap get cross threaded, though they look like they are engaged properly. After severla miles of rocky bumpy jumpy trail the cap falls off and you lose your tools. More like strwen over miles of trail. That is why people opt to use the exhaust clamp of the angle bracket.

I no longer carry that tool tube. FUCK Tools. My DR has never borken down on me. Actualy it is jsut a PITA to get your tools in and out of. So I did not reinstall the tube after a rework.

AWESOME!! THANKS FOR THE INFO!! Yea....I have had no probs with my Dr--I wanted a protective tube to hold x-tra night glasses, phones and small loose gear as I like to ride as minimalist as I can. I don't like backacks and I like to be streamlined in the woods with just a camelpack if anything.

91 dirt model carb question.

My bike runs great and carburates clean unless it is a very rough surface like braking bumps or a rock field. It feels like it is getting too much fuel. I have played with lowering the float level and it reduced the issue but I went back to stock cause it caused other problems. The float does not have an adjustment for limiting the travel I could see.

I have not heard of others mentioning this in this huge thread, so am I the only one and any ideas to fix it?

BST carbs do that because the slide "bounces".

Plasti Dip wont last offroad

The PO of my DR had rattle canned the tank white and it was bubbling like crazy when i bought it. I stripped the paint to find a UV-yellowed tank with "stencil" marks from oddly placed decals. It looked horrible so I plasti dipped it. It turned out great, but every time I go offroad it get worse and worse. I like the rubbery texture on the tank though, it's easy to grip with your knees while standing. Plasti Dip also holds up surprisingly well to split gasoline.

Pretty decent results for a $6 can and about an hour of time...Here it is a few days after dipping:

I found this (NOS) DG Baja skid plate on amazon last week. I haven't seen any of these around. Dirtoverstock was the seller, I'm not sure if they have anymore. Seems pretty tough, but required a little filing to get it mounted correctly.

You can also see my plasti-dipped tank after a two trail rides:

That skid plate is beefy. I ahev never seen one that comes up so high. Must be great to protect the oil hoses from flying gravel. My skid is peppered with marks from flying gravel all the wya up to the top edge. I'd assume that more fly higher and strick the oil hoses. The oil drain plug guard looks awesome.

Plastic dip tends to peel a bit. Did you rough up the tank prior to spraying. Have you tried rubberiszed undercoat spray or bedliner?

Anyone here have a supertrapp? I heard somewhere it was 4 discs to bolt on a stock dr. Currently running 6 and it cuts out on the freeway with any extra throttle.
