I like how you did this right here. Let us know how they hold up.

Post 20 shows what i had come up with. I had a different attachment after this that was much neater. This was just the beta test. Took them off this year and went with the pelican case 1170 mounted on the inside and works well but bit of a bugger to get at. (post 38) Not that i want/need to be getting at it on a regular basis.

Mounting Question???

I'm about to do exactly the same procedure on my GS and I'm wondering if you could have mounted the tube on the other side of the frame without it interfering with the rear wheel travel?

I would like to keep the tube out of sight as much as possible.

BTW, brilliant use of the Vario mounting brackets which I have gathering dust in my scrap cabinet!

Thanks for posting!

Just in case there are other inmates from Oz that are looking for this tube... contact Rob (rob[at]fieldquip.com) from Fieldquip. He was very helpful!

I used the Vario Pannier braces... works just fine..

Here are some photos.

























Cheers

Finished! Thanks!

Just copied your set up on my 2011 GS!

Really glad I found your comments, it saved me from using ugly P shaped brackets. I also painted the Vario bracket pieces flat black to match the bike and blend in with the rest of the bike!

As an FYI, I also salvaged the two large washers that were used in the stock skid plate on the lower mount point to give the mount a larger clamping area. These two washers have an integrated sleeve on the backside of the metal washer that slide inside the bracket to provide a more solid interface between the two pieces.

I'll post some pics later on to show what I mean here.

Well here is what i came up with as a retainer for the cap.
1/16th wirerope (cable) 14.5-16" long


drilled hole in the bottom, threaded into tube



drilled hole in cap, threaded cable through and attached cable ferrel



and TTTTTTTTTUUUUUUUUUUUUDDDDDDDDDUUUUUUUUUUHHHHHHHHH!

cable is 16" long on this one.

cable is 14.5 on this one..

Dosnt provide a lock but will keep cap from falling off and provide place for cap when you take it off so you wont ride off with out it.

I like that.

But, I don't see why the cable needs to go through the center of the tube, you could drill the holes at what would be the bottom of the tube so the cable doesn't need to be deformed when objects are place in the tube.
