Eddie - I measure it as about 10.5" (hard to be more specific since they are installed on the bike)

Don't think I've seen this rack version yet.

That looks clean. No issues with the chain guard under suspension compression?

Tool tube on a ktm 950

I just received my tubes and installed them on the front of my KTM 950. Not sure how well they will work here has anyone else installed them here on a 950?

Only concern is if the tubes come in contact with something they could get pushed into the tanks. I would think (hope) the zip ties would break first. May try some other methods to fasten the tubes on.

Any other concerns I may have missed?

For now In one tube I have four tire irons wrapped in a work rag and a small bottle of WD40. For trips I plan on putting in a fuel bottle in the other tube. This will keep the weight nice an low.

Here are some pic of the installation.

Anyone ever done one on a f650gs? I have yet to see one, with the exception of the PVC tube attached to the bash plate.

Looking for some ideas. Good ideas would be even better.

P.S. I like the KTM idea.

Here's mine on a Triumph 1050 Tiger. I hung em off the case mount. 1 on each side. I removed the cases so you can see it better.

Mine arrives soon for my DRZ.
I'm wondering if cutting off the moulded mounts would allow the tube to be mounted ~1" further in without fouling the tyre under full suspension compression
One could then fabricate a bracket to hang off the same frame mounting holes that you used.
The tube could attach to the bracket using 2 good quality stainless steel hose clamps.
DR-Z400S: I used some aluminum angle and trimed the plastic brackets on the tube. This was about as far inward as I could get without the tire hitting on full compression. The nylon strap is a backup in case the plastic brackets break. Cutout in rear fender allows cap to be unscrewed.
Carb or brake cleaner will take the yellow labels off in 5 seconds.





Cheers
Phil

From your pics it looks like you might have clearance issues on full rear suspension compression. Are you sure about that not being a problem?

You bottom out the suspension just by jumping up and down on the bike while it's static ?

if i put my fat 225lb ass all the way back on the rear rack and jump up and down it feels like it is ???

either way, i now also took a straight-edge just to make sure and lined up the edge of the tire and followed it up and yes there is still a 1/2" between the left edge of the tire and the end of the bolt/nuts that stick toward it, so even if the tire came all the way up and hit the fender, it would not rub the bolts.
