The trailer pulls great. It is one of my better purchases for the trip.

For those curious the straps are holding my fishing gear on the other side of the trailer, they are too long to go in the tote.
I am certain the trailer has improved my visibility to the cages as they slow down to point and take pictures.
Any chance you've had the opportunity to try putting a kayak on the trailer Yet? (you hinted a couple months ago you might get the chance).

Thanks

Possibly this weekend, but by the end of next week for sure.

weird1, I sent you a PM. If anyone can chime in, just wondering how you got the pivot bolt thing through the 650L's axle. Drill through the axle end since the rest is hollow?

If you go to the web site. an you go to the order it is extra for the drill bit for the XR650L. I think there is a waiting list to get one. But don't no how long.

As you might see above, Mr.Fisherman has the new roto-pax mount on his trailer. Here are a few sneak peaks of items that will be added to the webpage soon.....



Here is an up close look at the roto-pax mount. Shown with the locking roto-pax holders.



It even works with the new roto-pax 1.75 gallon fuel tanks.



Here is the new moto-mule base plate. This plate makes it ease to mount additional roto-pax containers, wolfman bags, happy trail boxes, and pelican cases.



Here is a shot of it mounted to the trailer.



Here is a shot with more roto-pax containers mounted to the base plate.



Here is a shot with a kolpin fuel container mounted to the baseplate.



Want to turn your trailer into a tanker rig??



Here is a shot with a small wolfman rollie bag in place.



And finally a shot with a Pelican case on a twisted throttle quick release locking mount kit.



Next thing on the drawing board is a backbone mounting plate, this will allow side by side mounting of items.

You know what else would work nice on the Roto-Pac bracket? A pair of Pelican 1430's, which I just happen to have sitting, waiting for a home.

The trailer is really getting refined, nice work.

Hey there MrBracket. Greetings from the UK.

Can you tell me the ground clearance under the trailer? I'm trying to build some thing like yours and im not sure what would be an ok height. I dont suppose it would really matter, as i only intend to do soft offroading. No major fallen tree or rock obstackles. But i don't want it to be too high to be unsafe.

Thanks in advance for any help

Today a friend needed a smile. I let him try my bike and trailer in his yard while his grandson was doing laps....

Who's having more fun?

By the way, in that video both Rotopax containers are full, the trailer is full of my moto gear, jacket, helmet, rain liners, gloves, and back pac with 3 liters of water and tools. I'd say about #40

Made some progess on the tail light setup for the trailers....



Closeup...





5prong trailer connector secured along the swingarm. I need to find some re-useable zip ties or the like
to secure wiring to the brake line??



Backside of bracket showing the wiring.



So far so good, it really works great!!

Nice! Not in time for this trip.

Have you taken the tail light apart to see how good the construction is?
LED?

How many tanks of gas is it $$?

LOVE this Moto-Mule trailer !!!
Thanks for adding my 990 pics to your website, it makes me proud

Just got back from a 1500 mile ride with this thing, loaded to likely 60-80 pounds.

It just followed me everwhere, it's quite amazing how not noticeable this thing is behind me,
even on some quite rough & rutted two-track along the North Fork of the John Day River.

It's the PERFECT Base-Camp companion, full of camping luxuries I simply could not take without it (my wife thanks you).
The BIG Polar Bear Ice Chest ???? YES !!!
The BIG tent ??? YES !!!
Even a two-burner Coleman Campstove fits inside that Action Packer box !!

It changes the handling only slighly entering the corners, very little really;
I just gotta push down on that inside peg a bit more to initiate the turn.

In the ruts, it actually INCREASES the gyro effect of keeping me upright !!



One BAD side effect, however....
While packing a very full grocery cart into this thing and my Jesse panniers,
I couldn't get out of the friggin' parking lot with all the admirers and "ga ga-ers"

"They just would not shut up" (Joe Walsh)
I finally just had to say "Hey, Shut Up !!" and ride away to feed the masses at the ADV Hells Canyon gig.

Question for you Mr.Bracket

I have one of your first Mules. Its for a 2006 KLR. Is it possible to "covert" it for use on a DRZ400?
