probably not a good place for the box. After 300mls full loaded my box broke the bolt on the top of the caliper hit it :o

It should be less wide, or it sould be placed inside the pannier bracket, maby without a lock but with the door on the pannier side so you have to deattach your panier to access it...

mmm if only i had a welding device...

so noone has ever actually seen the Italian jobs? im not gonna build anything like this. It just isnt realistic for me. But im torn between ABS(of unkown thickness) and Aluminum. I sent an email inquiry to the GSemotion guy on shipping, hs website is a little 'informal' in the ordering department.

The tool case in the first picture looks pretty nice.
Its a shame that you need the Adv pannier brackets to install it.
Would be interested if there was a way to mount on a GS without those monstrosities, uh, I mean cases.
Am I the only one that doesnt like side cases?

Another version

I did the same thing using a Pelican case. Here's my version:

I like the idea . But for now I ordered two of the small tool tubes from Agri-supply. (I tried the larger ones and they were too big ).

The hinge is on the bottom of the case. You pop the two latches. The case cover pivots down onto the top of the tire like a shelf. I reach in behind the license plate from the left side. The tools are in a Kathy's roll up pouch. I also have the registration and a few emergency shekels tapped to the inside back of the case.

What I like: You still have tools if you run with out bags. Completely watertight. Even if you have her loaded down with camping shit you don't need to unpack anything to get to the tools.

Caution: I had to shave the cover of the case cause I had some interference with the rear mud guard. It doesn't lock but it is so hidden I don't worry about it.

I just go like I always have... about 16 inches of 4 inch black pipe with a screw on lid clamped to the frame.

Works like a charm.

Probably about as much storage as the pelican, arguably harder to pack.

As I use ammo boxes on my 1100 GS for panniers - I continued the theme for my tire repair / first aid box. Most of my tools are under my seat. Undo the latch at the front and it hinges off. Cost was under $20 - water proof and has functioned quite well for the last 25.000 km
