    My step-son just bought himself a Suzuki 650 "crotch-rocket." (Can't recall right off-hand the model, but it's scary-fast). I knew if I was to have any hope of keeping up with him on even a casual ride there was only one answer - Afterburners!



    So... a couple of hours at the workbench and I had 'em ready! Just stand clear when I fire'em up!







    OK, maybe not. What these really are are my newly installed Agri-Supply storage tubes which I learned of in another thread here. I simply mounted them to my rack with zip-ties and, having found some reflectors the same diameter as the end cap at Harbor Freight, stuck those on. The tubes will hold bottles of water, cans of your favorite beverage, tools, a first aid kit, or whatever else you dream up. They are 12" long and 3 1/4" in diameter. I like 'em!



    Get 'em here -- AgriSupply

    You will want to keep an eye on those wire ties. I've found that even the black (uv resistant), but especially the white ones get brittle with age and or wear with vibration. I can think of innumerable ones that I have found either broken or missing where I tied something onto the TW. I'd bolster with real metal bands or the strongest wire ties I could get unless its something you remove frequently enough to keep the ties fresh. Tom

    You can actually fit a 33oz bottle of fuel in those agrisupply containers.

    These images come from this Advrider thread (the credit goes to murgatroid42)













    I have 2 on my Vstrom and will put two in the Tdub. The will give me 1/2 a gallon extra of gas, about 30-40 miles of extra range.

    Another piece of info, you can use break/carb cleaner to remove the yellow graphics, in a matter of seconds.

    I used Goof Off, per someone elses recommendation and the yellow paint came off very easily.

    Great tubes on fire!



    I like them too:







    I mounted mine under the rack so I had room for the action packer on top.



    You can fit a medium size trunk with the tubes on top of the rack too.







    That is what I did on my KLR.

    Thanks for the heads up and link to Agrisupply.



    A few people on fleaBay are selling the same things for $12-38...



    I much prefer $5 each!

    For mounting tubes, if you have a friend who's a cop get flex cuffs. Or go to Galls.com and order your own.
