    I cannot speak for Righty65 but I did something very similar for my V-Strom by cutting to an appropriate length a piece of ABS pipe and installing rubber expending plugs on each end. I was planning on using clean-outs on each end but I didn't have enough room to go beyond the diameter of the pipe I was using so I used the rubber expanding plus because they go on the inside rather than a clean-out plug adapter which would be glued to the outside of the pipe. U-bolts and straps finished off the installation to int inboard sides of my pannier mounting racks.

    I'm very happy with the tool tube. My friend welded the mounting brackets.

    I like that it's 4" diameter let's me get my arm inside, to reach the tool bag at the bottom.

    I placed a nyloc nut on the top plug as a sort of lock. It requires a 14 mm socket to open.

    I keep a socket and ratchet under the seat, that I can get to if I use my key to remove the seat. Then I can gain access to my tools and air compressor that are inside the tool tube 20200523_204658.jpg 20200523_204629.jpg 20200523_204621.jpg 20200523_204616.jpg 20200523_204610.jpg
