While this probably should be in vendors, good on you for taking the initiative to make such a thing available. I've been contemplating something like this for my WR250R, so I'll be paying attention wherever this ends up.

i can probably do one for a wr250, the tube would be the same, just a different mount.

I'd be interested in one of those! My only concern is that do you know if your Tool Tube will work with the Wolfman Gen 2 sideracks. Pretty much all the tool tubes that I've checked out have interference issues with that rack. Hoping yours will clear them!

Thanks and I look forward to your reply.

I don't know. I can tell you this. They do not make the side cover bulge one bit, and they bolt in location of the stock tool box and charcoal canister.

I would have the wolfman rack on my bike....... But they don't make it anymore.

went serious dirt riding today, came to the conclusion that the tool tubes are not ready for market yet, they hit the tire on big lumps.

will have the mods delete this thread, and start a new one if i decide to pursue the product.

sorry guys.
