Thanks for the idea..

Mine are Brunton 1.0L/33.8oz bottles and it's as if the tubes were made for them - they are not quite as long as the tube but I plan on just adding a bit of packing/rags at the bottom and top to cushion the bottles.

Hmmmm, enough room to use some clear "siphon" hose to take up the space ???

Well these tubes aren't waterproof either - the cap maybe since there's a bit of a gasket but there's also (what I assume is a drain hold which seems odd) a hole in the bottom that will need to get filled if you want it to be truly waterproof.

Tool tube mounted on a 2007 R1200GS

I just mounted Agri Supply's tool tube last night on an 2007 R1200GS. The tool tube is mounted just right above the rear brake reservoir (Make sure it doesn't pinch the brake line!) located on the right side of the GS. These are the materials that I used.
  1. 2x - 1" Insulated clamps (Home Depot)
  2. 2x - 1/4" x 1-1/2" Stainless steel cap screw button - socket (Needs to be the button type so that the cap can clear the screw) (Home Depot)
  3. 6x - 1/4 Stainless steel nylon locking nuts (Home Depot)
  4. 6x - 1/4 Stainless steel flat washers (Home Depot)
  5. 2x - 1" Bicycle tubing cut in the diameter the size of the insulated clamp (Used to fill in the slight gap on the insulated clamp (Free at your local bicycle store - found mine in the trash!).

Got around to this finally. Just a single strip of metal, drilled and tapped, mounted inside my luggage frame so there's room to put the big metal cans on when need be. In the meantime, a casual glance might make one think I've got twin pipes.

Would like to thank Inmate WAYNO for the link to the "Tool Tube."

Ordered one immediately and worked on several ways to mount it.

Working with Inmate Station Chief, he came up with an idea how to make great tool tube mount.

The pictures below show it the best (sorry some are not focused well).

Started with 2 inch aluminum round stock 2 inches long (2" x 2"). Drilled a 1 inch hole (frame size) thru the center.

Two holes (5mm) were drilled length wise (later to be tapped for 6mm socket head bolts).

One hole drilled length wise at center (6.8mm, later to be tapped for 8mm set screw).

Then the 1 inch hole was cut in half with a cold saw (blade 0.052") creating the two halves.

The pictures tell the rest of the story....set-up, mounting, etc.

Station Chief domed the top of the round stock for a better fit (and finish).
