Thread: Hydration System

  1. #16
    You need a container. You need a place to mount it. You either suck or pump.

    It isn't rocket science,

    I have built 4 systems with windshield washer pumps. But sucking works too

    Just hydrate!

    Hydration System

    Glad those of you that have tried the MotoJug system are happy with it. I need to do some work on the website as I've had quite a few customers mention it's not very obvious how to order. I'll work on it and see what I can do. In the meantime here are a few pics of the system on different bikes.

    How to use a hydration system tube/mouthpiece will full-face helmet?

    My Schuberth C4 helmet doesn't leave enough room for the tube/mouthpiece to be in there comfortably. What am I getting wrong?

    Hot on your back? Wadda putting in in it, coffee? I run a Camelback and I don't like it because I fill it with ice, then top it off with water and the middle of my back gets too cold. I I suppose I could try less ice. I didn't care for the straps on my shoulders over a long day either.

    These guys spending $75-$100 for a bracket to mount a cooler and a bit of hardware, why not build your own and just strap on the cooler somewhere. It doesn't seem like a big deal to me to whip up something.

    On my R65 LS and my R1100 S I run my Mosko Moto tank bag with built in hydration pack that works very well for me.

    Trail riding close to home I will sometimes wear a camel back. I had any type of backpack setup for long distance riding.

    Not a big deal if you have a machine shop and powder-coating gear. I don't have any of that.
