990 Adv. Primus Fuel Bottle

I have a 1.5 Ltr Primus Fuel bottle that I want to carry on the 990 Adv which carries HB side luggage racks. Any tips on where to carry the bottle? I'm looking at buying a MegaTube and maybe fitting it to the inside of the RH luggage rack under the exhaust can. Any help/tips/pics would be appreciated!

Check out bicycle equipments for a bottle holder.

I made myself up a little aluminium bracket for an MTB bottle holder, it's mounted on the front though so doesn't interfere with the lock, I don't have a pillion when touring.

Touratech makes a nice two bottle holder. Not sure how it mates up to the Gobi cases, but it works nice on their stuff.

NKL - I would drill a hole in your mount and create a leash with a carabiner clip that attaches to the lid of the bottle. You don't want to eject your spare fuel somewhere. Some steel cord with to crimp on holders should work.
See the tab at the top of the bike bottle holder? It fits again the shoulder of a 20oz bike bottle to prevent ejections.
Nice work though!

Here's the single bottle holder: http://www.touratech-usa.com/Store/1...or-0-5L-Bottle

And the double: http://www.touratech-usa.com/Store/1...or-0-5L-Bottle

The description says for half liter bottles but I've had the MSR big boys on there.

The photo was taken before it was finished, rest assured it has a tether attached.

Wolfman makes nice bottle holders. Very easy to install on almost anything.

Pretty sure the Wolfman holders only work with the 1 liter bottles.

This is my setup on the SE with two 1.5 liter bottles.

Well done!

Finding it missing would really put a damper on your day.

Nice one Boat. A liter doesn't get these beasts too far.

It doesn't look like those 1.5 liter bottles are going anywhere.
