mounting check prior to attaching license plate mounting plate. The lateral adjustment is made prior to cinching the straps tight.

Ok, so, these look nice and all. The real question is... Are they really waterproof?

close up of right bag clearance. Made as close as possible to keep left end of tube away from exhaust heat.

don't know what I did on the last 2 pics. It survived a trip to Santa Barbara today with no ill effects. It's damn near invisible with the bags on and you have to look for it with the bags off. I wasn't comfortable with any longitudinal mounts along the Jesse mounts. I was concerned with tire clearance. It holds every thing I had in a stuffed tool roll.

The final test will be a rigorous off road trip. I don't think the rear tire has enough travel to reach the tube...........we will see

cheers

This tube has a drain hole and will not be water proof unless plugged. I suspect the screw-on top in not waterproof either. The tube does come with a rubber gasket between the top and the tube. I think I may make a thicker one to be on the safe side

final before plate goes on. I've got a few more pics if any one is interested. Hope this stimulates some more mounting ideas for other bikes.

I see. I'm interested in a tube I can put on the bike permanently where i'd only be taking it off if I needed the tools. That means, it must be airtight so as to prevent condensation inside.

Do you think the gasket would accomplish this if you plugged the drain hole?

That was my intention also. "I feel" the tube would be water/air tight with the drain hole plugged and a more substantial gasket at the opening. The tubes are cheap, buy one and test it before comitting to a full on mount with valuable tools. The drain hole is easy. Since I"m not into my tools often, I could use a couple of wraps of electrical tape to secure maintain the seal at the cap.

Like the look of these, but I'm in UK. Anyone know where to get these, or similar, in England?

Question Vario cases?


I have the Vario cases on my 1200 and mounting the tube like this looks to place it very close to the rear tire. Any one mount this tube with the cases in place and find there is enough room all 'round?http://www.advrider.com/forums/attac...1&d=1214242819
