Does anyone have a picture of a 2 gallon rotopax mounted this way? I'm thinking of buying one but I'm not sure it will fit between the panniers.

You can measure it,the 2 gallon rotopax is 13 1/4 inches wide. And like 17 inches long.

Alright... everybody listen up

You visit the website brandsoftheworld.com and you can find just about any logo you can think of. I found lots of Red Bull, Dakar, and yes... even KTM logos! I think the logos are saved as vector files, so you can enlarge them with worry of pixilation. Download the logos you want and e-mail them to your local print shop. I used Fast Signs, great turn around time. You can also physically take the files to them on a disk or zip drive. The print shop should be able to edit size, shape, and colors to achieve the perfect look and fit. I spent under $100 bucks on the graphics and installed them myself. They do have installers if you are not comfortable laying the vinyl yourself.

Now let's see what ya'll can come up with.

PS: Does anyone think this is worthy of a new thread?

Did you clear coat them or anything after you stuck the vinyl on?

No, thats one thing I would not be confrontable doing. They seem to hold up nicely. I had my last set on all year and never had any problems with them peeling up or off. I wash and wax just as any other bike ive owned. The nice thing is if it gets scuffed up you just peel off the vinyl section, print another one, and stick it back on. Or just ride it all season and come up with something different. Fun winter project.

After years of raving about my '04 S, my nephew bought an '08 S. We went to Baja last weekend for it's dirt initiation. He threw it around like a motocross bike and couldn't believe how well it handled. I said "I told you" about 30 times. He just smiled!

They fit just fine between the Gobis. I would recomend you do not spin the RotoPax Lock into position. Thermal expansion will snap the bolt in two Use a couple Rok straps to hold the cans on the pylon and travel with no problems
