I tried to do that but finally dropped the idea. Eventually the wheel is going to hit the tube.

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

You can see my thread on the TW rack here: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...ighlight=tw200

Have a few more mods to go still, just need to get the time.

I see agrisupply.com has the document tube on their front page now with a note that it's great for tools. Word's out.

Tool Tube on TE610 Husky

I'm not crazy about how the strapping tape looks, but it is usable. Have it loaded with a tool roll and will give it a try in the mountains tomorrow....... JIM

Got the tube

Got the tube But mounting to the GS tube/frame seems un stable...Has anyone used any rubber/plastic spacers to help the tube rest more solid before putting on some sort of mounting strap? Looking for ideas for the 1200 GS??

How does the tool tube NOT get pinched by the swing arm when the suspension compresses?

I dig it man, but how do you keep the lid on? I was thinking of the same design, but maybe threaded endcap?

maybe the pinch is taken by the rear brake line

Actually, I use a drum sander to take some material out of the end caps so they will go on and come off. I think they may come with a bit of a tapper (tighter the further on they are). Rode through lots of heavy rain last year on my trip to Alaska on the VStrom and the toilet paper I had in the 4" ABS tube never got wet. It's just a little "Sand it and try it". Mine are tight enough that you need to rock the caps as you are pulling to get them off. A neighbor suggested I put a handle on the outside or use the threaded cap. I told him I could get the cap off OK. Just don't want it easy enough that some "D![K#eaD" doesn't get into it.
