Still need to make a mount for it to cling on to my bike.

My tool tube came in this week. Very nicely made for the price. I almost missed the cool little LED flashlight they threw in since it was burried in the packaging...

FYI, one quick spray of carb cleaner, and those yellow graphics come right off the end cap and barrel of the tube. A quick dab of silicon will seal the drain hole in the barrel end.

I played around with some mounting options on my motech racks tonight, and it looks like it'll mount to one of the existing rack frame holes perfectly and I'll either drill another hole to secure the closed end to my Pelican side case or make up a little bracket to use another Motech rack hole that's about 2" away... I'll get some photos up when I get this mounted...

Ok, about 15 minutes and some leftover 1/4" stainless hardware/fender washers, and the tube is mounted on my Motech rack frames. I'm thinking of storing a few tools and a flat fix kit in this nifty tube.

I have several of those in my paintball gearbag.

Just make sure to secure the lid. They are supposed to be easy to pop open to reload in the middle of a battle. You may have noticed some small piles of unshot paintballs on the field from a couple of those popping open a bit too easy. There's a ton of different harnesses, mounts, etc. for those containers. I'm sure there's some creative ways to use them on a bike.

Another idea if you want to do a little fab work. Here's what we used for a tool tube, its a toilet plunger that comes in a stainless steel tube. Bought it at the local hardware store.







We unscrewed the handle and your left with a nice light tube. Here we welded up some mounts for the lid and just finished powdercoating the assy.





This is the mount that we fabed up. It's going on my fathers TW200.





All mounted up. We made a rubber gasket for the inside of the lid to keep everything dry.





Rear View.

I like the looks of your top loader pelicans

BTW look like I will be able to fit 2 tool tubes on my SWmotech rack. I sized it up and they will fit, I need to drilla few holes though

Do you have to have another rider ahead of you with a "Wide Load" sign?

Damn that thing's wide.

Obviously functional though... don't be offended by the comments. I get teased regularly for the stock graphics and purple frame of the KLX.

Red Green says the cheapest route is duct tape and a couple of Pringles cans... and you get a snack while installing them - $2 if the chips are on sale, the beer's extra.

Hang in there, I'm pullin' for ya, we're all in this together.



Lord I apologize... just had to say it though. I gotta get out of here before you guys get pissed...

Yeah it looks even wider in the pics than in person. Be bags are just slightly narrower than the bars so it all works out good. Still narrower than my GSA setup.

I should make a "Wide Load" sticker up for the rear It sure does work great though.

Tool Tube on GS with Jesse's

When riding sans bags, my tool roll, compressor and plug kit resided in my tank bag. This was heavy and, as you might imagine, took up a bit o' space. When I saw the deal on these inexpensive tools, I decided to pursue and mounting site and came up with the following. It's attached via 2 aluminum strap I made and attached to the license plate mount. I took a few more pics and will attach shortly. Here's the first:
