That looks pretty hardcore for a dual sport ride. Good job tossing the WR around with all those trailbikes.
Thanks, DS rides in SE Ohio are more like enduros than anything else. ;)

Looks like about 2 hours 45 min away. Closest town to this DS was Brownsville, OH which is about 1 hour east of Columbus.

Agri Supply tool tubes on WR250

Does anyone have photos or suggestions regarding mounting an Agri Supply manual holder / tool tubes on the WR250? I bought both sizes, since shipping is more expensive than the product, and now i need to figure out how and where best to mount one of them.



I can use 3 stainless steel hose clamps to strap it to the frame, but if there is a better solution, I'd like to know.

I read once that the mounting tabs are prone to breaking off, not sure whether true in general or an isolated event. It would require a different mounting design entirely if one needs to eliminate the tabs, including preventing rotation of the cylinder when screwing/unscrewing the cap, so hopefully the tabs are secure.

I had mine bolted some how between the factory tool box and the helmet lock. Both wre removed. But on left hand tip overs it ended up breaking the mounts on the tube. Now not using the tube but have built a tube from abs to house my ten poles and that is gear clamped to the bike, it will be used for tools when not in camping mode.

A guy on here had a nice solution which basically involved a piece of nicely finished black angle irom bolted to the area where the helmet lock was. This gave a flat mounting location facing downward, and he bolted the tool tube to it, essentially upside down from the way it is shown in the quoted image.

He's on here, so he might post up.

I mounted mine, strapped to the frame where the OEM tool box was.
I also bolted the lower tab to the bike.

Worked out great for about 3 rides, and then I wrecked in some rocks and tore it off. Looking for another place now...

I mounted two, a small one underneath the larger one. Big one for a fuel bottle, small for tire irons and such.
Made a small aluminum bracket to secure it to the toolbox bracket area.
I used a Weld86 tooltube bracket. many miles and it never shook loose.

Thanks Ronin!

I appreciate your taking the time to write that up. Very helpful, thank you. I'm still not sure if I'm going to sell my WRR and get a 350EXC; keep the WR and get an EXC; or keep the WR and get an F800GS.

By the way, before installing the Scotts damper, what risers did you use on the WR? I'm 6'2" and need to get my bars high enough that I can stand comfortably.

The Scott's sub mount comes with a lower bracket / riser that lift things up quite a bit. I then mounted some Pro Taper Woods high bars and that got me enough height.
You can also get more "height" by lowering your footpeg position. As I recall the Fastway pegs have a high/ low position option. I took them off and went with Pivotpegz so I can't remember exactly. I'm sure someone here knows.

As others have said I mounted mine where the stock tool kit was. I used the passenger foot peg mount and the top tool kit mount. I used some aluminum angle for the "home made parts".

Inside view.

Note that I had to heat the bottom of the tube to dent it so it wouldn't hit the chain when the rear shock it fully compressed.

Lower mount.

Upper mount.

The saddle bag mounts protect it from a rare crash. But I don't think it would be an issue as I used it before the bags were on there. I believe it's the large size (it came on my back-hoe) and it's got plenty of room for all the tools I hope to need, plus tape, zip ties, master link.....whatever. My tube, CO2 and tire irons are in a front fender pack.

Thank you Rapid. How much modifying did the weld86 mounting bracket require?
