Any idea how this would mount on the 2018, if I didn't want to put it on the handlebar.

I mounted mine on the frame (2016 XR) on the left hand side, in pretty much the same position as the rear brake reservoir on the right hand side. I used a P-clip at first, but there was a little too much flex at the mount point, so I replaced it with a "Micky Mouse" clamp. It's a good position - easy to fill, and easy to turn when you're riding.

Hi guys, many thanks for the great reviews and install advice. I'm sold now on the Cobrra defo as nice to be in control and very much like the quality/build, install is very neat around the pannier frame.  :152:
Cheers

Does anyone have any pics of the install ( other than on the handlebar ), please ? I'm sold on getting one of these for my Thruxton. :028:
Doesn't matter where I'm going, getting there on two wheels is always the better option.

What clamp or how have you fitted it? Thanks

I tried a P-clip first, but it wasn't up to the job, and ended up using one of these: http://r.ebay.com/GGG7ep



26-28mm was the right size, allowing for some self-amalgamating tape to protect the frame.

I was worried that there was not much surface area to stop the bracket pivoting on the clamp. Star washers helped. I may replace the bolt later with something with a larger head, but it's not really necessary - a few hundred miles on and there's been no movement.

Note that the Nemo is directly below the "V" in the seat. This helps to feel your way when reaching down and turning it.

I thought about putting it on the pannier frame first, but it would have got filthy underneath, and the underside should be kept clean. Also, it's dead easy to route the tubing from where it's positioned into the front hole in the swingarm.

I reckon one would fit just here, perfectly
