Carry tube mounting

A couple of years ago I bought some plastic tubes to mou t on the bike to carry chain lube and stuff. I had seen other people mount them and really liked the idea. I could never get them mounted however because they just didn't fit the shape f my racks.

1. Here is one of the tubes.

Last month I installed aditional lights to my Givi V46's, so I will not be removing them from the bike. I decided to mount the tubes to the bottom of the cases.
2. I placed the tube on the case to mark my holes and drilled.
3. Tubes are mounted with bolts.

I will be painting the tubes flat black to remove the graphix. I keep my tool kit in 1 tube and chain lube in the other.

I fit them between the V35s and the fender. Not the best photo, but you get the point.

I just wiped mine w/ either a wet rag, or one sprayed w/ WD40 - can't remember which, but they came off EASILY...!

I recall using denatured alcohol to remove the unwanted yellow print.

I mounted my "tubes" between the saddlebag rack and the fender, using zip ties. I stuck on round red reflectors on the lids, facing to the rear. One tube has my chain oil, rag & "net bungee", and the other has my flat repair kit &
CO2 cartridges.

I tried that today. They are still as strong as ever. U already bought the paint so easy enough.
