Thanks in advance!
Those are 1 gal. rotopax cans.

Not really related but I have to share...
One of my 4 years (and few raids) old rotopax suddenly show a very small leak.
I sent some pictures to Rotopax and asked how too fix it
The answer was "what's your address, we send you a new one"
The biggest surprise was when I receive a parcel with 2 Rotopax inside!!!
Bravo!
When they say leak proof, they mean it!, you can trust them!

2 2-gallon rotopax on the rear rack too much?
I also have Jesse luggage, would that support the subframe enough?

I made add on plates for Touratech pannier rack, for my 690 enduro. This system can be used on all pannier racks with that uses 18 mm tubes with loop 350 mm x 245 mm (outer dimensions).

I will post pictures here, someone may get few ideas.

Nice, but I would not trust the brackets, they are not built to hold weight.
However, could be strong enough to carry 1 Gl

If you are referring to clamps - , I use Wurth Norma clamps, made of 1 mm thick and 20 mm wide steel, with reinforced area around holes.

Not made with main purpose to carry weight, but since 8 are used, more than capable to carry intended weight.

Yes, of course (and Wurth is a A1 choice), I was more thinking of how resistant they could be in case of a small crash, the kind of accident we have when riding off road...
