Tool Stash on 1200GS?
 
Hey, I'm wondering where other GS owners stash their tools?

I've been carrying my tool roll in my Kriga backpack, but I'm tired of taking up so much space in the bag with heavy tools.

I would love to read what others are doing to address this need. Also, its important to note that under the seat (not enough room) and inside pannier bags are not options. I'm looking for a solution that allows me to keep these tools on board at all times regardless of the bags mounted at any give time.

So far I'm thinking a tool tube that mounts right behind the license plate bracket would be a good (out of view) place to focus. I also think some sort of locking mechanism would be cool.

Thanks!

I mounted a Storm iM2100 to my rear luggage rack. I just drilled four holes in the case and used some stainless steel bolts and rubber washers through the existing rack holes. Perfect size for my tool role and first aid/survival kit.

Sorry for the sucky smartphone / parking garage pics:

You could try a fender bag like the dirt bike guys. I have seen some mounted on the underside of the beak.

I'm thinking this could be the way to go....

I think this is at least a good place to start building my own mounted tool tube. I just need to buy one and see where I can attach some brackets.

Should be big enough to hold my Adventure Designs tool kit.

I put one of the Agri Canister on my '10 GSA. I have Micatech paniers on my bike & put the canister on the right side under the panier.

Wait, why pay $4.99 when you can find these on fleabay for $19.99? :rofl :rofl :rofl

Yeah, the problem was the 12.99 in shipping!

Oh well......

I've got the agritube and it won't fit my tools for roadside repairs. It's relegated to spare fuel carriage. I just carry my tool roll in my adv case. One of those Raid boxes that fit behind the luggage mounts would be ideal, but they're a bit pricey.

Tools, spares, compressor etc live on bottom of my Jesse side cases. Keep the weight low.

I made up the pelican case on inside of Regular rack. Works well but a bit of a chore to get stuff in and out..

A solution for the stock GSA racks: http://advgear.net/

Dave was awesome to deal with.

aGremlin is right!

These little boxes are really well built and can hold a lot of tools...

Ditto on this, and I although you have to remove the case I prefer the wider access. Dave was great to deal with.
