PegPacker - 400 mile range on an F800GS?

Want more fuel capacity for your F800GS? Getting about 200 miles from the stock tank just doesn't cut it. What if you could increase it to 400+ miles?

How about the increasing the range of your R1200GS to 500+ miles? Or the R1200GSA to 600+ miles? How much range do you really need?

Or what if you could carry carry 2 gallons of fuel AND 2 gallons of water, and not give up any cargo space, or overload your panniers even more than they already are?

We've got the answer: The PegPacker

http://www.bestrestproducts.com/c-114-pegpacker.aspx







PegPacker replaces the passenger footpeg with a stainless steel and aluminum bracket that holds holds either a 1-gallon or a 2-gallon Blitz fuel canister, which is included in the kit.

Simply pull the passenger footpeg pivot pin, replace the peg with the PegPacker bracket, and you're ready to carry enough fuel (or water) to get you through the most remote adventures.

Yeah, I know, some of you are perfectly content to throw a plastic fuel jug on the top of your pannier or rear rack, and proudly announce that you spent less than $5.00 to carry that extra fuel. For some of you that's all you'll need, and you won't see the benefits of the PegPacker.......

But for the others who are willing to invest in a dedicated fluid carrying system that's designed for the rigors of GS'ing, this might be exactly the system you've been looking for.

The PegPacker fits the new F650GS Twin, F800GS, R1100GS, R1150GS, R1200GS, and the R1200GS-A. More models coming soon.

Sweeeeeeeeeeeeeet. That is genius. Why no one has done it before we will never know. I guess I can stop dreaming up ways to carry more gas on my soon to be F800GS.

Yup, they will. Each pannier system has it's own profile, but the PegPacker is adjustable fore-and-aft, up-and-down.

It'll work with BMW system cases, Jesse, Touratech, and of course my favorite Metal Mule.

Is the order price for one, or do they come as a set?

Thanks, Riley.



Hope we're both on our 800's next time we come across each other on I81.

Good Morning David!!!

There's quite a buzz about these over in the Orange Crush forum. Any intention of making these to fit the KTM's 950/990 Adventures?

There's quite a few guys interested, it might be worth your time to set these up to fit the KTM's.

Cheers,

Luca

Wooka -

We've already received several fern calls and email massages from KTM riders.

A local 950 rider has contacted us and we'll be getting together with him in the next few weeks to work out the prototypes.

As you know it's difficult to develop a product without the actual motorsickle sitting in front of you. Having a local rider willing to volunteer his bike makes all the difference.

Failing the generosity of that local rider, I'm gonna go for a trail ride with my F800GS. Within a few miles I'd be sure to come across a broken down KTM and I'll do the prototyping on the spot.

Is that because your R12gs is undergoing a simultaneous EWS, suspension and final drive failure?















Good luck on the prototype. It's another one of your great product ideas!!

Cheers,

Luca

We've worked out the details for KTM 640/950/990 fitment:




Some riders have asked how much room the PegPacker bracket requires. Here's a series of photos showing the passenger footpeg and mounting bracket on an F800GS.







More photos available over at out SmugMug site.

BMW photos click here: http://bestrest.smugmug.com/gallery/...7_FyTHW#P-1-15

KTM photos click here: http://bestrest.smugmug.com/gallery/7321289_jkpJQ

We also posted some photos showing alternative uses of the PegPacker. These photos show two different sizes of ammo cans mounted to the PP brackets:
