Here's a new product I've been tinkering with. It's a sturdy flush mount bracket for easily adding RotoPax fuel & water tanks. When not in use the RotoPax pedestal can be removed in less than a minute thanks to the pressed-in threaded hardware in the bracket. No messing with nuts on the backside of the bracket! This will be the quickest, cheapest, and most modular way to increase fuel capacity for those weekend adventurers who are running the stock fuel tank.

Looks great. Can you show the bottom, how it attaches to the rack? I have a different rack and wonder if it would work.

The mounting is pretty specific to the Suzuki rack.

Yep. That looks slick as snot, but my rack has bars running forward/back, not across like the stock Suzuki rack. It would work for me if the mounts ran crossways. Oh well, still a cool product, just not something I can use. I wonder if it would be worth it for you to find a more generic way it could mount to the bike or a more generic way it could mount to other racks. It looks perfect for mounting those Rotopax. I've mounted gas/water Rotopax to my bike in the past, right where you have and it's pretty cool. The problem is the way I mounted them sucked; whereas your mount looks like it would be much better. Good luck and I hope you sell a ton of them.

Excellent product! Very nicely done.
I must say though, for those that go through life looking at pictures on how to do things…….. ya might want to mount the gas can spout on the left of the bike, not over the exhaust. Hope they don't need a picture of what might happen if the picture wasn't clear enough on how to tighten the gas cap.

Very good point! I will redo the photos soon and make a note in the installation instructions. :2_thumbsup:

Is there any way to run this setup with the JNS rear rack already installed on the OEM rack?

You know what else this would be good for? Bolting a pelican case to the rack.

No, but you could easily achieve the same function by adding rivet nuts (rivnuts, nutserts, etc) to your JNS rear rack. It would require drilling a few holes and a rivet nut installation tool kit. You can usually find them for about $20 at your local cheap import tool store...
