Show me your Water Carrier
« on: May 18, 2015, 11:46:28 am »
Hey all.
Im trying to figure out where and how to mount a water carrier on my bike for amageza and looking for ideas.
Obviously bashplate... but 2 L is a hell of a lot of space...
Im on a BMW 450 so no nice KTM bolt on plate.
there is very little space at the rear of the bike, and I don't think water in a tail pack or tank bag is allowed?
BMW F650 DAKAR ; BMW 650 X-Challenge ; YAMAHA 660 TENERE ; BMW 800 GS KTM 200EXC. Now - KTM 950 Adventure S, KTM 250 XC-W and BMW 450 Rally

if u are interested in something no matter what it is, go at it full speed ahead, luke warm is no good, hot is no good either, white hot and passionate is the only thing to be...

I have been wondering if a rotopax type container bolted to a luggage rack will be allowed? I think the 690 have space to do that above the rear tank.
All that wander are not lost

Talk to this guy: http://www.bashplates.de/KTM-EXC-450-500:::10.html Maybe he can whip one up?

I-F handlebar space permits, and it's a BIF IF, then this is a workable solution...

Obviously a NEW tank, never had petrol in, and water ONLY...

That version should be able to fit to most round tubing/bar type cargo racks.  Just fit it sideways.

Just as a matter of interest, I see that Desert Lizard is selling a 4l fuel cell that fits in its own tank bag, that would work for water as well. Google it  :thumleft:

I've just gone with a 1gal rotopax water container on the rear rack. Though I don't thing the 450 has as much space as the 650 at the back...

Can you fit a tool tube anywhere - regulations say thats fine

from Amageza email

You need a minimum of 2 litres of drinking water fixed in a permanent way to your bike or quad. (tooltube with bladder is good enough)

As long as the tail pack fixed, you can fold a bladder up into it?

Ek gaan my bashplate 'n duim laat sak met spacers.

Die bladder kan lekker knus in die bashplate le onder die engine. Sit die bladder in 'n seil sakkie sit om te keer dat hy deur skaaf of smelt.

Dit voeldoen aan die reels. Die bashplate dra die bladder en hy is gemonteer aan die raam.

Take my advice; I don't use it anyway.

As jy goeie kwaliteit koffie poeier daarin sit, kan jy my koffie-draer wees.  1c per km?

Maybe on the LARGE size for Amageza, since they hold 5L, but we are just getting ready to launch the FB Fuel Cell, FB Diesel Cell and FB WATER cell, although we wont be stocking the diesel, just yet...

R549 for WATER (Blue!)
R599 for PETROL (Red!) The red cell has been flourinated, as per regulations.

they are STACKABLE ( the nest into each other), and can take my body weight - 95kg - see pic!

- this excludes the attachemnt mount- which is being fabricated shortly. How soon is shortly?  ;) Within weeks...

You know - jokes aside - I reckon a hot water bottle is a good idea - jammed under your bashplate?
