I just want you guys around for a long time so I can learn stuff from you. Except this pic, here I just parked it wrong.


Yep, that's why I ride either a D606 or kenda270 now.

Interesting- only failed on the center knob of the 3 row knobs where the narrow part of the edge knobs face outwards.

I say dunlop owes you a pro-rated replacement.

Did you heat-cycle this one when it was new?

Those only times were when I crashed and only when I was on some insane dirt road when I was fully loaded with all my gear. It was a road I should not have been on, but it worked. I am sure you will never have any issues if you use the 3 inch. If its too big, you can always just replace it with a smaller one.

Thanks for the feedback, gentlemen. The Harbor Freight welding rod holders are on sale for $4.99, so I decided to purchase one of them.

http://www.harborfreight.com/welding...per-46477.html

I trimmed about 4 inches off the bottom of the tube, and installed an Oatey, 3-inch test plug. After test fitting the tube to the bike, I verified it will clear the front wheel under full compression of the forks.





I'm going to paint the tube satin black with Krylon Fusion spray paint before I mount it. This tube is very lightweight, moisture-proof, and constructed of high-impact plastic. It has an inside diameter of approximate 3-inches, and will hold a lot of tools.

I can fit tire irons in my tool tube, or attach them to the passenger peg bolts. However, I think I might purchase a fender pack to hold a regular, 21-inch inner tube and my stripped, Harbor Freight air compressor.

http://www.harborfreight.com/12-volt...ssor-4077.html

Has anyone bought a Moose Racing Tube Fender Pack? If so, how do you like it? Is it big enough to hold the items I mentioned?

Don't trust the straps on the tools pouches. I've lost them in the past. I took the red oem bag off the back and bolted to the front fender. It will hold two tubes. I also got the slime compressor, very compact, but will bead the tire.

Fender pack - Moose

Hey Spud, I use the Moose fender bag and really like it, plenty of room for two tubes and small compressor. I also carry spare light bulbs packed in foam as well. Regarding the straps, I drilled four holes in the fender where the clips attach to the edge of the fender and run small zip ties through the clips and fender. The bag has not come off yet and stays put with no shifting. Good luck in your decision. I enjoy your photos and posts.

I lost one last summer on the Lolo motorway. You can see it's still (barely) there in this picture.



Gone in this one.



When I ordered a new one, The guys at Happy Trails suggested I zip tie it on. You can see that in this picture I hope.

Hey Walter,

In that second pic, is that a Shinko 700 spare you have strapped on the back? Have you run it, and what are your thoughts on it, both on and off road?

Yes that is a shinko 700. it lasted about 4000 miles of almost all pavement. I doubt there was even 50 miles of gravel in that 4000, So I can't tell you anything about it's dirt handling. On the pavement it worked well. It stuck well at any lean angle I was willing to push, and had no bad habits. The shinko SR244 that I have one there now however: It makes that bike start weaving at around 65 to 70 MPH. Feels kind of like riding on a bridge grate.

Walter

I've used one for years on several bikes while bouncing around the lava and sand of Central OR. Be sure to notch the edges of the fender where the clips mount to keep it from sliding around like Walter's pic shows. Mine holds two tubes, 3 tire irons.

Put on a CRF fender and you will not have any issues (built in "notch")

A couple of others have bolted straight through the fender, no problems.

I can see the need for a more secure mounting method if you are using the stock (or similar) fender. I have thought about drilling and ziptying mine, but mine has never moved. Cinched down tight, checked before each off-road ride. I am impressed with the quality of the Moose bag. I may get a Moose bag for the rear when my current tail bag bites the dust (won't be long).
