There is even a Red R100GS in your website's Customer Motorcycle Photos section that shows a mounting setup of this type.
Will you be offering something along these lines soon?

How did you secure it to the rack???

Are the springs in the eco spout known to fall out or is it just me? Two of them on my new 1 gallon cans decided that they didn't want to stay put. The spouts still work but without the springs.

I have the pro moto billet rack and run one rok strap side to side and one lengthwise. The
excess is tucked into the center opening of the rotopax can.

Rotopax Discount 1/4/2012

I just placed an order for four two gallon tanks and four locking pack mounts. The discount for ADVRIDER is currently 15%. Discount was about $60 and freight was about $40 so the discount was the better deal.

PSSOR bike

I picked up a pair of 1 Gal Rotopax a few years ago and these things are awsome! Last year we rode through temperatures ranging from below 30 degrees to over 100 degrees in a matter of half a day and althought they looked like ballons we didn't have a single leak and they still work great!

With the big Touratech gas tank I don't need the extra fuel often now so I was just on to order water cans but the website insn't working today (I'm sure they will fix it soon)

Locking Mounts

I have now read several posts from inmates that are unhappy with the locking mount not *unlocking*.

I'm wondering if this is an *old* problem since resolved, and if there is a known *fix*?

I'd contact Jason at Rotopax directly. He's a super nice guy and I'm sure he'll give you the straight story if there is a problem.

Agreed. he is a nice guy, no doubt. But I felt the subject was worthy of an explanation in the thread since it has been mentioned several times, and other users/potential customers should hear it from the horse's mouth.

The locking mount would be an integral part of the system for me, and if it is not stone-cold reliable, I would be more inclined to look at a bladder, instead.

And I have no intention of disparaging Rotopax at all. I would prefer to use it before the other choices in the market. But I would like Jason's thoughts, and I felt others might also.

If there's a way to make it work I'd be all over it. As is, they don't stack.

Just got my 1 gallon containers. I am blown away by the ruggedness of them. They seem like they could take some serious abuse.
