It's called an operators manual canister. But you just tell them its a long cylinder shaped tube with a cap

I bought mine in the store. I looked all over the tractor section, then asked someone. They ended up being over in the tool department.

What rick said, its used as a "welding rod tube." some other guys on the forum were running them, so I thought I would try it out. It seems pretty well made, and pretty waterproof. for the price i'm not sure you can beat it if you are looking for a tool tube. The only thing is...it's pretty damn big and I couldn't really see mounting it anywhere else (on my bike at least.) I'm probably going to end up putting it inside the pannier.

I hate to even put this out there but this was a little home made bodge job I did with some 2.5 and 1.75 inch PVC pipe and some zipties.

In the middle are a couple of "pipe bombs" I filled with liquids that shouldn't mix with other things. I sealed one end with plumbers epoxy and the other end just pressure sealed. On the right hand side I have a monopod but you can put just about anything inthere you want. The caps sealed up very well and the whole thing acted like a frame to mount a large Rev Pack Expedition pack on. I thought labeling the pipes would be a good idea to (maybe) asuage any concerns a border person might have with my frame.


8500 miles later the thing is still assembled in my garage in case I ever have a need for it again. Maybe on the Great Ride East.

I have the same welding rod tube (Canadian tire). Mounted across the touratech rack with two hose clamps. That sucker can take a lot of kit!

I just swapped out the painted pvc tube on my wee (it was looking pretty trashed)
For 2 of the home depot welding rod tubes, and I had to take a dremel tool to the inside to grind down the ridges in order to put an msr fuel bottle inside.
I carry the fuel bottle in 1 and chain lube /tire levers in the other.
Maybe a rag , zip ties , spare bungee, or small bits as well.
I like the screw top, but heads up on the smaller diameter.

Finally, after 16 months of owning the Tool tubes...

I finally mounted them... In my living room (ahh the life of a grad student). Thanks for everyone who helped with ideas, hopefully this will help you other KLRers looking for a cheap way to mount. I will post after a few hundred miles to let you know if the exhaust side tube melted off and if the Zip ties held up.

I relocated the tail lights with "L" brackets.

Zip ties? really? What's the over under they hold? Also, note the spacers. As a typical KLRer, I spray painted some plastic corks from cheap wine. They work great and are super durable.

I added a cross bar for extra stability for when I wreck in Mexico.

Just finished making these pannier frames for my partners DRZ, I wanted to keep the weight forwards, leaving room for a Tooltube (tyre levers etc):





I included an O'ring to secure the lid to prevent it working loose & dumping the contents, the bike's off on a trip to South America starting mid-August.

larger tube

Anybody know where to find the larger diameter version of this tool tube? I would like to check out the large diameter for my f800GS.
