Cheap Fender Bag


XRayTed

If you grew up with the Honda XR series and the handy fender mounted tool kit, you know how hard it is to switch to a bike without one. Fortunately, there is a cheap solution.

Purchase a vinyl Bible Cover with zipper.

Measure and drill 4 holes in the flattest part of your rear fender.

Use an awl to punch 4 matching holes in the Bible cover.

Insert a round-head machine screws and large washers from the under side of the fender (round heads won't dig into your tire when you bottom out).

Run the screws through the holes in the Bible cover, add washer, and nut.

Tighten it up and ride!

I used one of these for 4 years of adventures with no damage and no loss of contents, though you might want to hold the zipper shut with a twist tie for extra security.

Keep it cheap!

      Hi Folks!
      I apologise in advance if this has been answered elsewhere on the forum.  I did try searching for an answer here, but failed to come up with what I was looking for.
      I am looking for a front rack for my 2017 CRF250L.  My intention is to use it to carry extra fuel, between 2-5L, so not too great a weight.  I gazed with interest at Steph Jeavons' front rack and begun my enquiries from there.  From what I understand from reading these forums, the rack that she has fitted to her CRF is part of a windscreen bracket.  I do not require the windscreen (yet), but a front rack would be enormously useful.  
       
      Any ideas of places where one that could be ordered would be most appreciated, U.K. preferred, but if necessary, I do not object to importing from the U.S.A..
      Thank you in advance.
      Jamie

      After many requests and popular demand, the 1st gen KLX250s (06-07) Enduro Series rack is now available at https://www.pmracks.com/products.php?id=148 . Like all Enduro Series racks, they are Rotopax ready and compatible with many Wolfman Luggage products. All 1st gen KLX250 rear racks will include a separate bracket to relocate your turn signals.

      The first year I owned my 250L, I gooned around in supermoto trim 100% of the time.  If I wanted to ride off-road I would trailer my dirt bike since there are no extensive public trails within 1 hour of my home.
      6 months ago I wore out my street supermoto tires again.  Got busy, never ordered replacements so I swapped over to the stock wheels and tires.  I started venturing further out to do more off-road.  This eventually led to rim locks, better tires, skid plate, full RaceTech suspension and some supplemental luggage.  The luggage I've been carrying is basic.  Wolfman enduro tank bag, Wolfman fender bag, Wolfman bottle holder with 1L of extra fuel.  I also ride with an off brand CamelBak.  I carry basic tools, 1 spare tube and 2 spoons, phone, charger, air pressure guage, bike pump, zip ties, GoPro stuff.
      I'm getting bored of the local riding area and I want to start taking full day trips.  I ride alone most of the time, I probably prefer it even.  My questions:
      What is your must have gear for day trips that might also fit in my current bare bones luggage?  I don't want more bags. I don't have rain gear except for my tank bag.  I figure if it's calling for rain I'm not going and if it rains late in the day, I'm headed home.  Bad idea? Do any of you trailer your bike to get closer to the action?  Most of the riding I want to do is in the mountains of NC.  I'm about 1.5-2 hours east of the roads I'm trying to get to.  That's an extra 3+ hours of riding to get to the good spots and get home! What do you use for GPS?  I use google maps on my phone typically.  However I don't expect to have service in some locations. Does anyone use a device like the Garmin InReach?  My wife would prefer I get one of those since I ride alone and will be on remote forest roads. Thanks for the advice.

      I just got my hands on a new CRF250L. Since this model was just released there are not yet model specific luggage options. Until some one comes out with mounting hardware for a set of hard panniers, what are my options? I tried a set of Ortlieb waterproof soft bags but the exhaust burned through the rear strap. The inside of the right bag was also hot as an oven. The obvious answer is a generic tail bag but I'd like more capacity and still be able to strap on a tent and sleeping bag. Would a pair of Aerostich tank panniers work? I'm concerned the flair of the front body work would push them out too far.
