I use this tool tube and bracket. I bought it from him when he did a limited run last year. He's back at it. It works awesome.

Just ordered the bracket only. I have tube that I bought a long time ago. It's cool that I'll be shaving the ears off of. Nice that he gives that option ...

Has anyone tried these racks out.
They look as though they would fatten the bikes arse by a mile.
I am interested to hear.

You can see the 'dart' on the right side of the bag pointing from the gas cap to 2:00 in this pic: (I'm no seamstress. I just folded it, pinned it and went back and forth several times on my mother-in-laws old machine. Done.)



3. I sewed a small loop on the front of each bag and clipped a piece of small diameter bungee cord rubber around the front of the tank. This is sort of visible on the front side of the tank in this pic:



4. As i said before, I added a drainage grommet in each side so they don't hold water inside.


Some will think this is too much work and just buy bags ready made with straps etc for $$. For me these bags are the right size, a good price and fairly well made and stout, and I don't mind doing some monkeying around to make them work right for me.


............shu
i bought the same tank bag, goo price but is right in the way of knees and blows around like hell.

ammo can saddlebags

Anybody make some budget/home-made racks to hold ammo cans? The racks online are ridiculously expensive.

Hey,
What do you guys think about these racks? Pretty good price, but haven't the foggiest about quality

Lee makes great, quality stuff for sure and fairly cheap. He used my bike as a test fit for his rotopax/topbox capable rear rack. This one: Suzuki DR650 Rear Case Utility Rack, Pelican and Rotopax Compatible

He also made me a BBQ rack type extension that bolts down to the smaller rack, giving me a larger footprint. I haven't seen the extra rack on his site or eBay, but I'm sure if you ask, he might have one or be willing to make one. For me it's the only crash protection you need. Hangs out just wide enough to protect turn signals and even keep the plastics off the ground for the most part.

Question Dr650 dirt bags set up

I pick up a set of DIRT BAGS RANGER model for my DR that already has the Ebay side racks installed. The racks have been holding up great, especially after a couple of hard spills. My problem is tying the DIRT BAGS set ups rear portion. Checking their web site I find they make bike specifics side racks which have fastening points for the bags. Cost of the racks isn't a issue, it's just from the picture I question the durability of the racks. Has anyone had any experience with these? The bags definitely are well made.....

Is your reference to hard bags only or all bags? The DIRT BAGZ are soft bags.....Thanks

Anything that won't transfer the high freq vibs to the frame of the bike is ok with us.
