Getting ready for the upcoming riding season. Added 3 30 oz. fuel cans to the top of my rear case. Not final mounted yet, but the final position is completed

I think he mounted them away from the hot exhaust so they would not be rocket boosters.

Is that on a quad?
it is a top case that has a qick detach that i use on the tw and my fz6r. i just did not have it mounted at that point. I am going to install a precision rack onto the TW

Nice!
However that is a bit of weight up high which may be somewhat hard on the GIVI latches and hinges given time and vibration from rough Saskatchewan back roads. Stress dissipating washer backed multiple fasteners on what we call "tool tubes" . I use 4 per tube. Have seen a few of these tubes break.

Now mounted with a Precision Motorcycle Racks rear rack. Really like the build quality of the rack

I like to carry extra fuel weight low.

Fall over at at speed and that gas can is going to shred through and spray fuel everywhere. Might want to place it inside the frame so the frame takes the brunt of the scrape.

There are two different Rotopax cans. The good ones are labeled Rotopax and are made in a rotational mold. They are super darned tough and I would trust them on the outside of a load.

The cheaper version is labeled Fuelpax. They are blow molded plastic and much less robust. They are still plenty tough but kinda in a Walmart sortuva way.

Their actually pretty tough. I watched a heavyweight BMW go down and slide
over a hundred feet on it's rotopax on 77 north.. I t looked like crap but it didn't leak !
It really saved the BMW a lot of damage too.....

The actual RotopaX weigh only twice as much full then they do empty. There is a bo-hunkin-metric-butt-ton of plastic in each one of the rotomolded ones.

They ones on the trailer appear to be knock-offs.

Yes between the tanks and the mounts they are heavy

I even run them when they are empty as crash protection

Apologies. Didn't recognize that 1.75g are square. I have 2.0 that are rectangular. Pretty sure I could park my truck on them.
