TTR Tool kit box/pouch suggestions?
Permalink  
 


I have been looking through the parts diagrams for my '04 US-spec TTR & am unable to find the tool kit (mentioned in the AU manual I have) which leads me to belive that the bikes didn't come with a kit as they were not sold as street-legal machines here.

But I would like to carry some tools & since I seem to be starting form scratch, has anyone found a good way to carry stuff tucked away other than (or in addition to) the factory box? 

Also, does anyone have a part number for the factory box & retainers?

Thanks, Ted

Hi Ted

The parts you need are on this fiche:

http://www.megazip.ru/ru/bike/yamaha/view/1086/15363/191813#g191829

but I am pretty sure that the US spec TTRs don't have the mounting points on the removable side frame arm.

Why not a rear fender bag or a headlight mounted one?

Thanks for the link.

Did a parts search with the # &  those are available here for other Yamaha models, around $15 though. Do they actually hold much?

Took a look at my frame & I do have the bracket for the bottom but not the side tab. I'll probably explore your idea with the headlight bag. I would like to have a minimal kit tucked away & take a larger kit on longer rides if needed.

I have a couple of these already for my tractors implements:

LINKcanister

They are tubes with screw-on tops to hold the operator's manual for tractor implements. I thought these would be a nice way to carry stuff but they're kind of large (12"+). As I searched, I was surprised to see they're being sold to carry tools/fuel (with a second canister inside) for nearly 4X what you can buy this one for. (Google "tool tube").

But the Agri Supply tube (link above, where I got mine) seems to already be the popular source for LOTS of off-roaders (motorcycles, atv's, bicycles, etc) as it came up in many forums I searched. Hope these might help some of you over-landers.

But for now, I may fabricate a smaller version out of plumbing to go where the stock kit goes. Need to get my speedo installed to see what I'll have for space.

Its also importanyt that ypu should use the small tool bag,  Because you have to swing your leg that bit higher every time you want to get on the bike.\
