Motorcycle Fuel Bottle

Recommended Posts

Who has a fuel bottle attached to your FZ-07s. If you do how do you have it mounted on you bikes. Could you attach some pics of how and where you chose to mount it?

I saw it on CaliEsv's gallery: 
http://fz07.org/thread/5182/caliesv-gallery
 
But the links on the thread are not working, but look for MSR bottle on Google - if CaliEsv could help us out, it'd be great! :)
I believe he is the only one besides @zombiephone
but hers is a jerrycan.. more or less

Yes I saw caliesv's. That's where I got the idea. I just want to see how other's have been creative and mounted theirs as well.

I sent @enupe pics of my set up so far. I'm pretty sure people can come up with some fun places to put it. Maybe even under the tail with some metal straps. Or some where on the frame.

The only issue I see with it being under the tail is rocks shooting up at it.

Just FYI. The bottle and mount are 2 separate purchases. They didn't come together

Damn... thats the one i was looking at...
might end up with a different manufacturer.
Ive seen some 1.5-2.5L bottles(50-89oz)
up on amazon was thinking those might work pretty well... nearly 1/4 tank with the 2.5l bottle
 
Still like the accent the MSR brings to the fz...
 
Grrr... typing this while on the verge of drunken bliss is not easy

Haha! No texting and drinking. Lol jk. Yeah I hear ya. But then you got a huge bottle sticking out like a sore thumb. That's how I see it anyways. This, for me, should be enough gas to get me out of a sticky situation within the city limits. Or if I come across someone on the side of the road that needs gas. It's theirs.

off/on topic, what do y'all think of this wacky thing?

i haven't read up on it, but it seems pretty low profile!

Not bad but it's only certified for temporary use. The fuel bottle is designed as a more long term portable/emergency option. it states in the desc that fuel should be emptied from bag at endbof day...And $120 is a lot to spend for a piece of vinyl rubber

That is the cleanest I've seen. Is that mount completely custom or is it available for purchase anywhere?
