I wonder if you could adapt these new mounts to fit off a rear passenger foot peg mount?

I'm planning on trying to do just that with the Peg Packer Base Unit.

Got my 1 gal tank. Looks very good. Thanks Jason.

The spout fits inside and has two channels. One for gas and one for air. It is made to flex but to bend it it has to go to the side because of the 2 channels. Looks a bit delicate but I do not plan to be using it all the time. Only when I run low.



It has a teeth on the cap that lock it shut so the cap cannot loosen from vibration.



I was hoping I could carry it on my R1200GS instead of a pillion seat.
It is too thick to slip under the raised rack at the back and just a half inch too long to fit between the rack an the seat.



I tried turning it sideways but that does not fit either.


I could carry it on my rear rack but that puts the weight higher than I would like and I prefer to have it more inboard and better protected. Could use one of Jason's mounting units there.


I will look into mounting a flat deck on the back and removing the raised beemer rack and the Givi mount. I will miss using the Beemer rack as a handle when putting the bike on the center stand.

Looks like the idea is to further stabilize the cans on whatever you mount them to.
