    Mounting Tool Tubes inside of Givi panniers

    I mounted these tool tubes to carry an extra 1/2 gallon of fuel in preparation of a long trip in July. The tubes mount handily inside the Givi PL1111 flatback hardcase mounting racks. The forward end has a clamp around the rack and the back end has three zip ties around it. Half a gallon isn't much but it is an extra +/- 35 miles of gas and will allow me to stretch gas stops without worrying about a reserve. If so inclined they could hold whatever.

    Here is a couple:

    Manual Canister, Tool Tube, Tool Carrier | Agri Supply, 67670, Manual Case

    The Tool Tube, motorcycle storage tube, tooltube, operators canister, tool storage, fuel storage, 1 liter fuel bottle caddy

    I paid more but liked the dark almost black color with no pictograms on them.

    I went to their website, but that just confused this old man. Which ones did you buy that fit for perfect on the Givi's. Are yours the mega tubes.. Lot of combinations here. I have Givi bags with Give rack also, which tubes do I order to fit so good.Mounting Tool Tubes inside of Givi panniers-9-jpg

    The ones that are 14 1/4" long - 3 5/16" ID, $17 ala carte or $19 with the clamp and zip ties.

    You should paint them to look like rocket boosters.
