Tool tubes, one for the fuel, one for tire irons etc
Would a CO2 cartridge be enough to fill up the rear? Do you also carry a little pump - like a MB one? I have to figure out how I'm going to carry my stuff on day rides out of here.

I would stick with the tradition/proven pump. Sometimes the cartridges don't work, or you have a small leak that needs just a little bit, and a couple of times I've seen replacement tubes pinched..... You can run out of c02 but you can still pump by hand with a MB one.

...no, but I was thinking yesterday I should carry a hand pump since I didn't bring my kit bag.
I'm sure the right one would fit in the small tube.
I have Trail Stand , and 2 irons in there.

I had a front flat 2 weeks ago, CO2 was worthless. The stem ripped out of the tube.
No, didn't have the fender bag with me either....

I started thinking about it, and I'll probably just put one Wolfman bag opposite the Rotopax. I'll just bring my compressor.

I love CO2 cartidges. One will get you enough psi to get where you need to go.
Not enough for a car but plenty for a bike.

That doesn't surprise me at all!
Our little bike is so much bigger than you'd think when it comes to all round abilities.

good location for hand-pump?

Please forgive the cross-forum post (this is also in Equipment):

Has anyone found a creative way of mounting a bicycle pump on a WRR/X? I bought a Blackburn Airstik dual-action pump to allow me to air-up when back on pavement, and to fix a flat. It's lighter and simpler than the electric pump I usually carry (& I haven't wired up a 12V socket on the WWR yet).

It looks like a quality piece, and came with a decent-looking mounting bracket, designed to go behind a bicycle water bottle basket.

I don't use hard luggage, and I don't see any obvious places on the WR250R that won't expose the pump to mud, rocks, and damage.

I thought about the handlebar brace, and the front fender, not wild about either. The rear rack could work, not the cleanest solution, and awfully exposed.

Photos and / or solutions would be welcome.

How 'bout putting it in a tool tube, like RapidDog has on his bike? Don't know if those tubes will accommodate the length of the air pump.

Go get a tool tube or go make one. Hardware store abs pipe glue one end cap and glue a screw cap on the other. Gear clamp assembly to bike frame wherever you like then. Want to carry more. Make out of bigger abs. I plan on doing this to mine just for my tent poles.

I can't see that standing up well when you land it on some rocks??

But the tool tubes do? Or the stock mini tool box? When does it land on rocks? It's all about placement

I have one of these under the seat, with my axle wrenches & tire irons. I've got the kind that has a co2 connection, so i can fill with it, or pump. In about 20k miles of lots of different riding, i've never used it. Of course, the next time i ride, i'll have 2 blowouts.

I always put my pump in my tank bag, or tail bag if I was using it. Those tool tubes are fairly fragile and hang too low and too far out for my tastes. The pumps are durable enough. I also keep a CO2 kit, they're nice to have too and don't take up a bunch of room. Now that I think about it, I haven't had a flat on the trail or road since I started carrying the CO2 kit, so I've never had to use it!

Under the seat? Really? I never noticed that much room; I'll have to have another look.

Re: all the tool tube suggestions - the only obvious spot is where the OEM toolkit lives. As tube makes the OA size that much larger, but would protect it. I had a tool tube on my V-Strom, and on my trailer, but the WRR doesn't have luggage racks or many spots that see good candidates.
