Whoops. Forgot to include the dimensions...

9" x 13.5" x 3"

I'm going to mock up one in cardboard this weekend and see how it looks with my Dirt Bagz on my WR250R.

Also, I have no affiliation with these guys, I just happened to get Jason on the phone. Nice guy.

Cheers!

Need some

I'll take two.
How about KTM orange or black would be nice.
Does the mounting bracket really weigh 4lbs. ?

I am in for the one gallon if my other plane foils.
one more gallone on my x should give me plenty of range that I am looking for.

SWEET is all I can say about that

I'd be interested in either the 1 or 2 gallon unit, plus maybe a blue 1 gallon one for water, if Jason does a small run of a different color.

Does the fuel smell permeate through the container? IE If storing it in a pannier will everything else is said pannier wreak of fuel?

Do the older Kolpin mounts fit the Rotopax fuel containers?

The 4 lb bracket seems a bit much, especially if you're going to be adding one on each side. Someone needs to come up with a billet aluminum version.

Hmm, maybe I'd need to put the one for water on this side:

No, the brackets do not weigh anywhere near 4 pounds.
Yes, the RotoPax uses Kolpin brackets.

Huh. Perhaps the website is inaccurate, 'cause that's what it says there.

http://www.rotopax.com/pack-mount-ro...p-1-pr-70.html

The larger L-bracket is listed at 8 lbs.

I still think it's a great idea, and I'll end up with a couple on my F8GS one way or another.
