Lost Tools

no lost tools I was lucky when I got my TTr it still had its full tool kit under the side panel plus the right wheel nut sized rear one. Now i had a puncture Saturday I was only out for two hours as the weather was ****ty but I needed a ride I had not been out since Christmas. Now I'm not one for pissing around in the very wet mud two do a tube but as luck would have it I was yards from a mates house and a nice dry garage with Tea so long and short I swapped the rear out for a 21inch tube I carry. so job dun I clipped the tool box back under the panel an came home only to find after going to fit a 18 inch tube today at home the tool kits fallen off gone missing nono even took a slow bicycle ride back out that way today its lost forever so tubes an wheel spanner ordered from Steve only time I ever take it off is for the wheel spanner as I carry a set in the fender bag as well

Bad luck Martyn cry

Sold a TTR to a mate a few years ago (he is still riding it) and he rode it home but lost the toolbox on the way. I couldn't have put the rubber strap on properly. I searched the road on the basis that it would have come off sooner rather than later but no luck  no

Might be an option

www.aliexpress.com/item/Motorcycle-Pit-Dirt-Trail-Bikes-Storage-Tool-Box-Holder-Bottle-Plastic-Container-for-yamaha-TTR250-XT250/32844397078.html

I just bought one, I'll see how well it fits. It is a bit bigger than the standard one (drill a hole in the bottom of it), which if it fits will be even better. I've still got the original one and would be upset if I lost it, comes in so handy. I carry a tool bag on my rear rack with all sorts of stuff but this one is so convenient its always to first one to go to.

I have some new, but empty boxes here, if you want to make your own tool kit up. I have not had a chance to put the boxes in the shop, give me a SHOUT, if that helps.

I was coming back from North Tawton a little run round the lanes that way took a look at Brian's favourite river crossing It would have needed a Boat and I don't have the balls to ride up the steps on the bridge on the Tawton side so did not get far down that lane its like a bog pit on most of the lanes round Crediton we have had so much rain this winter. Crediton with the road closed is so nice mate its like having a real Bypass keep it closed I say biggrinbiggrinbiggrinbiggrinbiggrinbiggrin

Just logging in to say the same. Its too wide, I thought of moving the mounts, but it will be too wide and hit the tyre when it comes up.

I'll find a way to put it on the DRZ.
