I built this one for my Nova Scotia trip out of diamond plate laying around in my back yard.

I built these for my Trans-Tiaga trip out of spare scrap laying around in my garage. The round center caps holding the side tanks on are made from backyard tiki torch covers.

This is my version of mounting the tanks. I used 4" wide by about a 9 3/4" long stock aluminum, countersunk the holes and used 1/4 stainless steel flat head bolts and locking nuts.

My version for SW Motech racks



I could have just bolted the alloy direct to the rack this way I only use one 6mm bolt with the existing mounts carrying the load and my wolfman bags fit over the lot.

The solid plate attached to the ktm racks looks like a great way to go. Has anyone considered using the Happy Trails puck mounting kit?

Back when I used their system those pucks worked really well.

I would appreciate a picture or two of the fabrication without the fuel can attached. Thanks in advance.

How would that work? Use em to mount the plate to the rack? The rotopax needs to sit flat against the plate...

If it would work as a Q/R for the big flat plate I might be really into this, but since I've never used em I'm not seeing it.

Tell me more.

They would hold the mounting plate against the racks. just replace the big knobs they give you with round headed allen key bolts. Might need to use some strips of weather stripping on the plate to space the rotopax away from the bolt heads but it would probably be less than 1/4". Just a thought.

Actually, I like it! I had a different idea entirely, but for 50 bucks and no rack mods; and easy on/off, this has some serious potential.

Gotta order some aluminum...

Happy Trails Puck Mounts

I just added some of these to PakMeiser painners to use on an 07 adv with ktm racks, they make several sizes depending on the tubing size, very secure once on. I also have a a 1.75 fuel, and 1.0 h20 rotopack at home that I am looking to mount up. The idea a clamp on plate for fuel pretty intersting, would work very well with Giant loop.

No mods to the rack with my setup. Mine has been down several more times with Rotopax containers on/off. No damage to report. I got lucky and had a friend give me the plate.

Actually the dimensions wouldn't do me any good since I couldn't build a cross for a grave. Perhaps you'd build and sell another one? (PM me) I would also be interested in seeing a picture with the Giant Loop over the rotopak, since I just ordered a Great Basin.

Thanks,

So I worked this up on eMachineShop tonight. Hangs inside the hoop with 1 inch RipWrap or One-Wrap. I'm considering ABS or whatever Pelican cases are made of at 0.375 inch thick. If you have the 60012020100 rack you'll understand the placement of the strap openings.

The idea is RotoPax mounted to this and then some Wolfman bags (more RipWrap!).

Impressions? Suggestions?



BTW, new owner. Picked up my new old stock 2010 White last week. Love it. It's like a Tuono got a F650GS Dakar pregnant and they had a wild kid. Been reading this board for awhile now and y'all's opinions factored a lot in my decision.
