I just got off the phone with a guy at BestRest Products, the makers of the PegPacker, and he told me that they're going to be selling just the passenger peg bracket replacement part of their product, i.e., without the aluminum bracket, shelf, and fuel container, soon. Should have details up on their web site in about a week.

The passenger peg replacement assembly would seem a pretty ideal place to mount a couple of 1 gal. Rotopax containers. They would mount down low, would fit nicely in front of your panniers, and would be tucked in tight to the frame so that they wouldn't snap your tibia if you find yourself paddling in sand. Depending on what they come up with, I'm thinking this is the way I'm going to go on my F800GS.

Hey guys - no problem at all posting the photos here. I'm new at the forum games and I didn't want to violate any cross posting rules (I've been scolded before for other transgressions and I'm a sensitive guy ).

When I wrote the post above I thought that the two photos would appear rather than their links because I pasted the BBC code for the links, but it didn't seem to work.

I'm glad the photos can help!

Rob: The velcro was just to reduce a slight shimmy in the container. The koplin twist lock works well, but the container can move 1/2 inch or so because the hole in the container is larger than the koplin twist lock. After riding it a bit I think the velcro isn't needed. It came with the container so I thought I'd use it.

If those 1 gallon units turn out to NOT leak fuel... sign me up for four.

Appears that they've fixed the leaking problems that the old Kolpin containers were known for.

From the Rotopax web site - Leak-Proof: extra threads, thicker walls, and a sure-seal gasket guarantee your spout wont leak or vibrate loose

He just sent me this info as well...

"The guys can watch the video under multi-media on our site we run the fuel pack over while full of fuel with a 3/4 ton truck while laying flat and have not one drop of fuel leak out. I will replace any pack that ever has an issue with leaking. It has only a couple times due to the molding process but never the spout or vent cap."

I'm going to mock up one in cardboard this weekend and see how it looks with my Dirt Bagz on my WR250R.

Also, I have no affiliation with these guys, I just happened to get Jason on the phone. Nice guy.

Cheers!

Did you ever try the mock up with your dirtbags. If so How did it work and any pics please.

I did not. Emerson Bigguns actually did and I think he is still working on this one. In the meantime I mounted up some ATV tank saddlebags and will use some plastic army canteens.

If EB comes up with a mount that goes under the Dirt Bagz, I'll probably investigate it. Check out the wr250r thread in Thumpers for more info on this one.

Here's a photo that Emerson Biguns posted in the WR250R thread in Thumpers. This is a mock-up of a rack he's building to mount the Rotopax in behind the DirtBags.
Shown with the 2-gallon version.

I'm all over the 1gal as well! I have been looking for these for a while, but had no idea what they were called or who made them! glad I popped into Vendors this evening.

Poked around the his website as well and even the first aid paks are pretty good too! - great for sticking them in the trailer or trunk!

I'll be subscribing to this thread watching for the 1gal release.
