I have seen bags that mount to the crash bars and they are nice but I’m looking for other options that cost less. Some of the things I have seen are on eBay and cost $100 or more and I don’t know about the quality.

What are you using? I don’t want to have to keep taking up pannier space if I can mount these essentials somewhere else.

Under the seats I can fit my tool pouch, tube patch kit, tire pump, axle wrench/tire levers, spare brake and clutch levers, parachute cord, emergency poncho and emergency blanket.

I have my seat in the low position with Denali light control and Eastern Beaver 3CS under there I can only fit a Stop&Go flat kit.
Coiled Tow strap, ductape and steel stick fit under the rear seat.
Dusty high vibration environment under the seats.
MotionPro bead breakers are in bicycle inner tube sleeves and tie-wrapped to the right rear frame.
Tool roll and compressor in a small well-padded Pelican case on the rear rack.
No place for a tool tube as I have a Camel ADV auxiliary tank.

I also have the Camel tank and am running into the same issues. Got pictures of how you’re mounting tire tool/bad brakes and your Pelican?
