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!

      Tusk Pannier Racks are perfect for all your motorcycle adventure needs. If you have a Dual Sport Motorcycle and need to haul extra gear, Tusk Pannier Racks have you covered. Made from tough ¾" powder-coated steel tubing, these racks are made to hold up. The 4-point mounting system and "bumper support" that links both sides, ensures strength while providing protection to your subframe, side panels, and exhaust.

      Tusk Pannier Racks feature an exclusive quick release system that hold your panniers securely yet allow you to remove them in seconds! Whether you want to take the panniers off for a short ride or you need to take them off during an overnight hotel or camping trip, the quick release system makes this simple and convenient. For security measures, an optional included locking knob threads to the rack from inside your panniers. If your panniers are locked, there is no way to remove them from the rack.

      The Tusk pannier rack is perfect for just about any type of pannier. The rack includes pannier mounting hardware that works with aluminum panniers or plastic Pelican type cases. The hoop design also makes attaching soft luggage simple as well. For the ultimate set-up, check out the Tusk Aluminum Panniers.

      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.

      Im looking at investing in some wolfman luggage packs for 450 xc-w. My cousin has one on his drz400 and im very impressed with the quality. They have so many choices of packs and im having a hard time deciding which one(s) to go with.
      My xr250 had a pack mounted just behind the seat and I was happy with it. The ktm doesn't seem to have the room for a pack in that area. I do a lot of hill climbing and tight single track so a large pack will not work.
      Has anyone tried out the front fender pack?
