I'm about to follow the lead of others here and mount two 2 gallon Rotopax to the ktm racks.

but I wonder if anyone (apart from me) has considered plumbing them into the fuel tank crossover tube.??
Similar to a nomad rear tank.

Hello on the French KTM Adventure someone did something little bit similar.
The extra tankers were the ACERBIS one
They were fixed on the front crash bar ( both side)
And connected to the KTM main tanker ( probably connected to the pump)
But one day the guy felled and the KTM burned..

Here a thread that can help you .. the guy build an extra tanker and fixed a mikuni pump .. it is all in French

Below some pic I found that show the rotopax fixed on support

Whoa! Sounds like an awesome idea!

Also, the inmate who cuts these for me is off the grid for about another 10 days. I am not keeping a 'inventory' so they are cut to order.

Also, I have a DIY top rack which can also fit a rotopax on a ktm (or any other bike) perfectly. To get an idea of the size, they are the same size as a medium flat rate USPS box.

I have a few ready to go. (I bought a qty of these and still have a few left)

Sold the 990 Adv and got an 1190 Adv R. Decided to keep the rotopax tanks and boxes. Drilled the stock rack as a start. Maybe we need another thread.

In my opinion, I like the bulk of my weight to be as low as possible. The bike is designed in the same fashion.
Beergut, I assume you are thinking of similar thing what Mechanical posted?? Maybe it is decent if you are in the USA or off-roading.. but when traveling outside USA where you can split lane and get through traffic to front of stop light.. forget it! Too wide to weave around.. You will appreciate Hondo's work assuming you use wolfman luggages or smaller panniers.

It may be worth using compression straps to strap the Rotopax to the rack, just in case it fails. In that way, your ruck doesn't wind up lost in a desert, or worse, in the wheel of your riding buddy.

In addition, having used those rubber hose clamps before, I can attest that they do not hold up well to the rigors of off-road riding.

Sorry, dude. A very creative solution, but I am afraid that you are setting yourself up for a yard sale

16k miles later I replaced the cutting boards with aluminum. No wear or cracks were apparent in any part of the system, it just seemed like time....

Busted Sub Frame

I broke both sides of my sub frame (thank you KTM warranty) with only a front tube and pair of tire irons in my knockoff brand pelican case, and the 2 gal Rotopax(full) on top of the case.
This was my setup all because I was too cheap to get the Giant Loop Coyote saddlebag, which I've since purchased. So now, ideally, the Rotopax will be the only thing attached to the rear rack. I'm toying with the idea of removing the case handle and re-installing the Rotopax mount so that it sits vertical, with the Coyote bag sitting against it.

Same here. Working on a design now to use the "negative space" on the shifter side.

Wolfman bags over Rotopax for KTM

Mechanical, do you mind if I ask how much it cost for the aluminum, laser cutting, and custom mounting stuff? I have the identical Wolfman bag setup and was thinking of doing the same thing. Nice to know someone else has already done it!

Also, what size are those gas cans? I'm looking at the 2 gallon but not sure that the pannier mounting straps will reach around...

Thanks in advance!
