Tool box for pannier frames
on: July 28, 2021, 01:35:38 PM
Hi all.

I have a a 2021 Tiger 1200 Alpine and am looking for a small tool/ kit storage box that will fit onto the left side pannier frame to store puncture kit, visor cleaner, etc.
Having fitted a Innovv K3 system under seat storage has now been greatly reduced.
So what are you all using and can recommend?

Thanks in advance.
Ride safe.

Don't know your particular frame.  I have a Tooltube on my Gen 1.  I used some rubber lined P clips to mount on to frame rail.  Was quite tricky to get in just the right spot so that there was no fouling if suspension was fully compressed.  Works well though and allows me to have a basic kit and tyre pluggers with me.  I cleaned off the yellow markings after taking these pictures using a little petrol based on someone's recommendation although there may be safer solvents available!


Ask me if you have questions about any of:- Carbon fender extender, Pyramid shockshield, Triumph radiator guard, Givi SRA 6403 and 52L Trekker top box, 38L Trekker Outback cases, SW Motech crash bars and Storm handguards, GPS mount for car-based Garmin satnav, Batzen bracket, Skidmarx screen, SW Motech light mounts and LED lights with Skene Designs controller, Fuzeblock, Sena SMH10, Remus Ti Hexacone exhaust. Admore light bar. Handguard indicators/DRLs.

Givi make this:

As Givi make the Expedition panniers for Triumph I expect it would be simple to fit if you have those panniers & frames

I have four of those "tooltube" thingies mounted on my Tiger.  Two on the lower engine bars, and two on the LH Givi monokey rack.
All mounted with cable ties.
I bought them from a rural supplies store.  They are "document holders" for machinery.  Quite cheap, or much more expensive from motorbike accessory places.
All up a very cheap storage solution.
The only downside is that they aren't lockable.
(You can store 1 litre of port in one, or a 750ml bottle.)

I have the Givi one. stupid stupid stupid money. But, in terms of it doing what you need, it's been very good. I can get the compressor in there, full puncture kit, tape, zip ties and so on and it's never leaked or let dust in. Accessible even when bike is loaded up. If you can swallow the price then it's worth it. I also have the cylinder one but struggled really to make it useful so now it's full of welding rods. If you can make it work for you like some have then at £10 - £15 it's remarkable value.

Likewise - bought the givi one with adapter plate from someone on here about 18months ago. same never leaked and find it really useful - keep a locking chain in it as well as tools/ zip ties etc. Did buy a tube while back for my Gen1 but never managed to find a home for it on the bike where it didn't look like an afterthought/eyesore

Thanks for the replies all!
Looks like the Givi one is the one to go for.

Stay safe and have a good weekend.

My S250 & mounting kit (S250kit) arrived today.

Anyone else find they have to modify the bracket to make it work with the stock Triumph pannier racks?

I did a test fitting with just the 2 lower screws attached to mount, and there is no way to get the toolbox mounting holes to match with holes in the frame.

I'm reluctant to drill holes in a $70 bracket.

Any pointers would be helpful.

Thanks!

Can't say I had any issues. Mine went straight on.
