DIY Faux Exhaust Storage Container

Has any one hollowed out the right side exhaust canister on their 2003 F650GS?

I am finding a few aftermarket kits, but I want to do it myself.
My thought is to seal off the connection between the two canisters, hollow out the right side, and somehow make it a viable place to store my tools while being able to replace the end piece as the lid.

Here is the general concept, but I want it to look stock when I am done...ideally anyway! http://faq.f650.com/GSFAQs/Photos/Ex...mmy3RossOz.jpg


Anyone? Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?

I did this on my KTM 990 after I got a 2-into-1 can.

I gave my friend the other stock pipe and he did the same thing and mounted it on his 800 GS.





I used the cut off end as the cap. Fabricated a crude sleeve out of duct metal sheet and used push pins to secure the lid in place.





I can fit two tool rolls and a compact electric air pump in there.



It's a PITA to empty the can, but it can be done with patience and the right tools.

Go for it! It's worth the work. Lost of room to put tools or spare tubes. Looks like stock and fits just right.

Help! I don't know if my bike is broken, or if someone has stolen it, but I've only got one can on my bike. Am I being stupid?

Yeah, but that's one BIG can. If you gut it you could fit half your toolbox in it!

Would delete if I could...

Apparently I picked the wrong spot in ADVRider. Apologies...

I have only had one post that addressed the question. All other comments are completely useless. I hope that jerks like this don't completely take over ADVRider. It was once an awesome place to connect with other riders and share ideas. This thread has been the opposite experience.

Feel free to delete it now and scold me in whatever way you want...I'm pissed.

You're pretty thin skinned I see.

Not up for a bit of playful teasing? You start a thread in the wrong section about a mod that's been done a million times and act like it's visionary and then get one useful response from a KTM guy and we proceed to tease a bit which sends you off in a huff?

Go ahead and make fun of my run-on sentence if that helps.

Relax man. Life's too short.

No apologies SpecialKRH. Just ignore the comments that don't add value to the thread.

This is what the KTM stock exhaust converted into a tool box looks like on the 800 GS.

Who are you and what have you done with Loutre????

This Jekyll and Hyde thing means you're either over medicated or under medicated, I forget. In any case, flattery will get you nowhere.

Funny you should mention that, just got out of the hospital and got funny painkillers after my wisdom tooth operation. Now I look like a real otter
