Carrying fuel on your Adventure Motorcycle safely

rotopax fuel cellRotopaX is a revolutionary new type of Gas Pack, Fuel Cans offering the ability for carrying fuel on your Adventure Motorcycle safely. The gasoline containers are engineered and developed with the overland motorcyclist in mind.

The RotopaX Fuel Cell System is a great solution for carrying extra gas on or off road, whether traveling by motorcycle or ATV. Packs are available for gasoline, water, or even tools and first aid, and they mount easily to your AltRider luggage rack using a simple install process.

RotopaX Gas and Liquid Packs are rotationally molded for superior strength and a leak-proof design that puts to shame traditional blow-molded carriers, like cheap gas cans.

Those traditional gas cans and packs have thinner walls and weaker construction that wear out fast.

RotopaX have solid thick reinforced side walls and extra threads with a sure-seal gasket thus guaranteeing it will not leak or vibrate loose on the most challenging ride.  The rotational molded design strengthens construction and is made from colorfast materials, so they’re less prone to fading or wearing out.

RotopaX RX-PM Pack Mount Hold one in your hands, and you will feel the immense difference in quality over those cheaper liquid cans.  The RotopaX packs feel solid, like you could run them over with a truck and they wouldn’t leak a drop.  See the photo to the right.

RotopaX also attach to a wide array of OEM and after-market mounting brackets, and utilize their own RotopaX mounts for a tight and secure attachment wherever you decide to mount them.

The unique design of the packs and the mounts allows them to be stacked on top of the other for a lockable secure fit, even in the bumpiest of conditions.

The RotopaX RX-PM Pack Mount can be installed in many areas on your bike, from the top box plate mount behind a pillion, to beside your pannier side cases (providing it is not on exhaust side) or at the rear of the side cases.

Use with included base plate or remove plate to attach mount direct by bolting up through the bottom or down through the top. The Lox Pack Mount is also available which allows you to lock your fuel away from theives.

The fuel cells are also stack lockable which allows you to stack multiple cells and increase fuel range even further. The added benefits of the stackable ability is in the case of you dropping the bike, you may only damage one small cell, not lose all your extra fuel.

Verdict: The RotopaX fuel cell and mounting system are rough and tough and I trust no other brand when it comes to safely carrying volitile fuel on my motorcycle.

You might be paying a little bit more than some of the other brands, but in the end RotopaX will not let you down thousands of miles from home.
