Fitting Tool Tube for F800GS

I bought one of the popular tool tubes for keeping the necessary basic tools. Same as the one below.

Has anyone mounted one on the F800GS as I cannot find a suitable mounting point. I do not have pannier racks, and don't want to buy just to fit the tool tube.

Any pics would be appreciated.

Thanks
Pete

I've been thinking on it but haven't come up with anything worthwhile yet either.

Only works if you are running Jesses. This has lived here for over 20,000 miles:

Mine's on the bottom of my right hand pannier, so that doesn't help you much.

I think I saw a pic over on UKGSer where some Brit put them up front, they look like gun mounts.

Let me see if I can find it, back in a sec...

Found it. Not exactly my cup of tea, but effective nonetheless.

Won't let me post the pic here's the link

I used a strip of aluminum bar stock which runs underneath and is bolted to the pannier mount.
Total cost $15.00

Nice and simple!

How much weight would you say it carries? Wondering about long term vibration/crash durability.

Also, does it stay totally watertight? I see what looks like a hole between the two mounting points.


Thanks,

I put all my gear inside to repare something on the bike with a litte compressor for air.

Normally it isn't waterproof but I put some hot glue inside to make it waterproof.

Awesome, Trippelke. Sometime the simplest solutions are the best!

Check this mount out as well. I think its pretty much the same idea as above with some good pics of the home made brackets.
