Rear fender tool bags

Hi all

Just wondering what everyone is throwing their tools in these days
I have a WR250f and didn't really want to go down the line of using a waist belt bag,

Really like the idea of the rear fender bag and have been looking at a few

The kriega US5

http://www.kriega.com.au/tail-packs/us-5

Or the wolfman enduro tool bag

http://www.wolfmanluggage.com/Enduro..._tool_bag.html


I looked at these sets so I could expand in the future for weekend camping and day tripping

Just thought it would be good to see what people have to say

Thanks

Have you considered a rack to mount a bag to?

I am currently using a Pelican 1170 box mounted directly atop the fender in place of the OEM toolbag on my 2009 KLX 250S. It's just as low profile as the bag when full, but more than twice the capacity. It's big enough to hold a comprehensive tool kit including a hand pump and spare 21" tube. Fully waterproof, and lockable if need be.

Got to admit I like the kreiga as it has the rip out inner and it seems to have a lower profile than the wolfman tool bag.
Also if I want to get a bigger system the kriega does the over lander kits that have better capacity (15litres) as a soft pannier and seeing how I'm only running a 250 at the moment It should fit until I get a bigger capacity bike

Hmmmm decisions decisions

I like the Wolfman a lot. Mine is mounted on the headlight cowl though:



Since the mounting plate has exposed Velcro that I don't want to get dirty as it would reduce its adhesion, I made this little cover from an old bleach-bottle to protect the Velcro when the bags isn't on the bike:

Wolfman is great - have a couple.


I got one of these (below) for the first time, bolted it right to my rear fender and its been awesome. I know a couple guys using them as well.

I use a Kriega US-5, but it's wearing out... needs to be replaced soon.
I never even considered a Pelican; doubt I'd use one, but that's pretty much the exact same size as the Kriega, and an interesting alternative.

I have a WR450F with the pro moto billet rear rack , then a small pelican case attached for tools , I'll see if I can find some pics when I get home of the set up .
http://www.motosport.com/dirtbike/PR...GO-RACK-SILVER


same rack fits the wr250F as that is what is on the wife's bike

the peilcans are nice as they are waterproof on their own with out needing a rain cover , and you don't lose tools that poke through fabric .
I have had many different set ups but this works best for me .

I have also had success with the tool tubes, the wifes WR has 2 across the moto rack to carry extra fuel bottles . I'll get pics of that too when I get home

I've run them on my last 2 machines. Drama free - solid construction, dour able, reasonable price & perfect size for my application ( ProMoto rack on a exc500). I like that it can be sinched down tight and you can tie additional crap to the top or sides.

Wolfman is nice for the quick disconnect and adjustable mounting. You can cinch the bag as tight as you need to if it is not full up or expand the straps further if you are at max capacity. You can throw a lot more in there than you imagine.
