I need the gas one, how is this going to effect purchases to CA?
I might need a middle man to get it and then ship it to me, would not want the place to get fined for selling non-ca regulated containers (dumb Californian law)

Why would you need a second party for a water tank? I live in Cali also.

Read post #41...

That is unless you are going to use it for water...

Husky TE610 Mount

Here's a 2 gallon Rotopax mounted on my TE610:

I'm happy with it.

Hey Howard,

That looks simple and clean. What's the cell held on with? Just those velcro straps, or do you have one of the regular mounts attached to your rack underneath?

You have to register at Cafe Husky to see the photos.

Thanks.

Weird - all his photos are accessible to me without registering using both the IE and Firefox browsers

Maybe it's a Mac thing. I can't get in using either Safari 4 beta or Firefox.

I have no trouble and use both also on my Mac. I think it is on your end.

Here's Howard's pics - if he doesn't want them posted here, I'll delete them.





Mount Location
Shows the location of the mount on the tail rack. This is too far forward if the Rotopax is carried parallel to the bike's axis. I'd move it aft one to two inches. However, when carrying the container perpendicular to the bike's axis (mount would be rotated 90 degrees in that case) this might work well.



Bracket Mount
These are the two pieces of aluminum stock that I mounted to accept the 6mm flanged fasteners that then mount the koplin mount for the container. The forward piece of stock uses the 5mm holes already drilled in the tail rack.



Aft Mount Detail
Detail of aluminum mount for rear section of Rotopax mount. Aluminum stock cut to shape of diamond in Moto Billet tail rack, then a step was filed (use an end mill if you have one!) into the diagonals. This captures the aluminum piece and prevents twisting when torquing the 6 mm flanged fastener.

Ah--those two images I saw just fine. There's a link on that page to an album on Cafe Husky with additional pics, where I was hoping to see what was under the Rotopax, that is, how it is attached and to what. It looks like it's velcroed to the ProMoto Billet rear rack. Wondering if he's using the standard twist n' lock attachment as well, or just the velcro straps.

I registered on CafeHusky and "stole" the pertinent pics of his mounting solution. They were added to the previous pics in my post above. Again, I will delete the pics if Howard objects to them being "stolen" and posted here but I only did it to help others out.

Thanks! I hope Howard doesn't mind. It's in the interest of science! That's pretty slick. I think something similar could work well with the TT rack on my F800GS. Gotta go measure....
