Underseat storage?
« on: July 19, 2013, 10:38:40 PM »
Sat on this bike yesterday, really liked it and it'd be a big step up from my current WR250R. One thing I forgot to look at is how much room for odds and ends there is under the seat, can somebody snap a pic with something like a cigarette pack as a frame of reference?

Now, it's gonna depend on what you smoke I think.  If you like a 40 pack for example you might be able to squash that in under the seat but it would be easier with a 20 pack  :001:

There's a small toolkit, rolled in plastic under there and room for a U shaped lock and not much more space.  I don't think they intended it to be used for storage/carrying things really.

If you need more carrying capacity you can add on panniers and/or rear box though

I have taken off the pillion grab rails on mine and I use some  Oxford soft  panniers.

They fit well without the grab rails and the bike still rides well :)
