I only got 3-4 dual sport rides before the first failure, and less with subsequent re-engineering.

Also I've seen the rotopax mount set-up shear the bolt right off,.......particularly on the ole mans F650GS Dakar 2 weeks ago in S America, wont ever see that gas can again, fortunately we didn't end up "needing" it
At what locations did the subframe fail??
