Where to find perm storage for jacket liner.

On my prior bike (700S) I was able to store my jacket liner under the seat. I tried this on the 919 but it wasn't even close.

I know some have fork bags and other places they can use for perm storage. This would be different from saddle bags and tank bags.

I use the bike for running errands and need every bit of storage I can get.

I'd like the jacket liner to ALWAYS be there, I've been caught in cold weather ride backs too many times. It starts out at 70/80 deg, then the trip back home it's 40/50 and I wear a mesh jacket.

The jacket liner is about the size of the air filter or a 1L bottle.

Maybe something near the rear shock area?

Have you ever put it in a ziplock bag and squeezed the air out?
Maybe it will take less room.
When I go on overnight trips, I pack old underwear and socks vacuum sealed in bags, then throw them away.
I've fit a weeks worth of clothes in a standard tailbag and small tank bag.

The liner is insulated on this jacket (Icon) and it wasn't on the other jacket (Joe Rocket), so maybe that's the difference.

I did have it pretty tight, but the 919 tail really doesn't offer much storage.

I do have a vac food sealer, maybe I'll give that a try.

If you really want permanent onboard storage, change out your exhaust to the 2 bros single side exhaust and get the matching storage canister. This makes it look like you have 2 exhaust outlets (like stock), but you use one side for storage. Comes with a locking cap and all that good stuff.

The exhaust or a windscreen, then you can jam it between the windscreen and gauges. If its the size of the air filter, an m9 would be perfect with that bump down the middle.

Edit: or is it the m12? Its the Buel screen that fits the stock headlight.

There's quite a bit of room in the sides of the tail section if you could stuff in in there from under the seat. The left side is easier to get to (relay bank is blocking on the right).

That's where I tried to fit it. It was pretty close, but not big enough. The other jacket liner would fit because it's thin, this new one is insulated, so it's thicker.

I wonder if I can move things around a bit, I noticed the back part doesn't have much room, I wonder if some of that stuff can be move around to offer some more open space.

Maybe an LED rear light would open up some storage space.

I might just fab up some canister storage that I can mount somewhere like near the rear fender.

Maybe an alum tube mounted below the exhaust.

I did see a license plate "trunk" on eBay before. They basically made a storage thing that replace the mount where the rear plate is.

What about a magnetic tank bag?

I've had one of these for a long time and I really like it. I keep it on the bike 24/7 and it really comes in handy.

Here's some pics of mine from an old thread:

Just be careful where you drill. The ECU is just above that area and some have learned the expensive way.

I use a tank bag now, but the jacket liner would take up 1/2 the room.

That FastPack looks great, but I was looking for something that I could fill and keep filled all the time. The FastPack would be for fill when needed.

I know a lot of cruiser bikes use a small bag on the forks for perm storage, but I'd rather have something tucked out of view if I can.

I'll take a good look a the bike and see where there's extra space.

I really wish Honda would have left us some usable room under the seat.

A small leather bag that would attached between your forks just under the headlight sounds like it might fit the need for jacket liner storage. Might not be too noticable. My dad has one on his '03 1100 Sabre. Not sure how one would look on a 9'er though...just a thought.
