    Anyone ever mounted a kolpin or rotopax horizontally rather than vertically? I'm working on a new mount and curious if anyone has tried before I commit to drilling holes for the mount.

    thanks

    I have. What are you going to mount it to?









    If you can't find it, grind it

    Same basic premise. I cut a piece of alum diamond plate about 10x12 to use as a platform. Have about three coats of undercoating on both sides, and plan to make a modular system of sorts. I'd like to switch between a kolpin mount and a pelican case.

    Been working great. With a clark 4.1 tank and a 1.25 kolpin I've dubbed my bike the fuel mule.
