    The Tusk Aluminum Pannier Boxes are designed and manufactured to handle the most extreme adventure motorcycling. These panniers are loaded with features to offer an unbeatable value! These panniers are made from durable yet lightweight aluminum with a tough silver or black powder-coated finish. Not only do they look great, but they prevent the items you store from getting the black residue produced when rubbed against unfinished aluminum.
    Unique design that eliminates seams on the back two vertical edges (weak spots on other panniers), and all existing welded seams are reinforced with internal stitch welds. For security and convenience, the boxes come complete with 4 (2 on each box) matched locks and keys already assembled on the latches! A rubber gasket at the top of the box ensures the lid is tight and waterproof. Each lid comes complete with 4 bolt-on footman loops to secure additional items.
    Each Large box is 37 Liters and measures 15 ½" tall, 9 ¼" deep, and 18" wide. The Medium boxes are 27 Liters each and measure 14 ¼" tall, 7 ½" deep, and 16 ¼" wide. Both are sold in pairs. Tusk motorcycle panniers can be mounted to most pannier racks (mounting hardware not included – mounting hardware is specific to the pannier rack). They are highly recommended with the Tusk Pannier Racks.
  • Durable aluminum panniers that offer an unbeatable value for adventure motorcycling.
  • Powder-coated finish looks great and protects items from unfinished aluminum "blacking".
  • Seamless rear vertical edge design and reinforced welding ensures strength.
  • Complete with 4 (2 on each box) matched locks and keys assembled on the latches.
  • Aluminum lid is completely waterproof and features 4 bolt-on footman loops to secure additional items.
  • Each Large Box is 37 Liters and measures 15 ½" tall, 9 ¼ deep, and 18" wide. Large box opening measures 16 ½" Wide x 7 ¾" Deep. A pair of boxes gives you 74 Liters of storage.
  • Each Medium Box is 27 Liters and measures 14 ¼" tall, 7 ½" deep, and 16 ¼" wide. Medium box opening measures 14 ¾" wide x 6" Deep. A pair of boxes gives you 54 Liters of storage.
  • Aluminum is .085" thick and each Large pannier weighs a little over 11 lbs., while each Medium pannier weighs just under 9.5 lbs.
  • Designed to be mounted on most brands of pannier racks (mounting hardware not included), but highly recommended with the Tusk Pannier Racks.
  • SOLD IN PAIRS.

First Set
I had to build custom racks because Tusk doesn't make them for my bike. Boxes are great, can't beat the price. Completely satisfied.

Panniers 2017 Africa Twin CRF1000l
If you have been looking for panniers you will not get out any cheaper than the tusk pannier set. If you have the ability to drill a few holes you are golden! I got the medium which are 27.5 Liters per side and they are plenty big for my camping expeditions and cross country travel (I leave the kitchen sink at home). Paired with the Tusk pannier liners and handles and it makes a great combo. The biggest upside is the price, especially if you are planning to ride offroad, I needed soft bags as well but I wanted somthing that would lock when in the city and these fit the bill perfectly.

Sturdy & Big Volume
The installation was pretty straight forward. You can pack a lot of gear in these panniers. My only constructive criticism is that you should put blue loctite on the threads of the lock cylinders because a couple of months of off road riding and one of the cylinders spun out and is lost, so now I have to go through the hassle of getting a new lock and hopefully keyed the same as the existing 3 so I don't end up with more keys etc.

Best upgrade for a Utilitarian Bike
This is a great product at an affordable price. The utility of the KLR650 almost doubles with the addition of these. Installation is not as quick or easy as they make it sound. "Installs in minutes" is accurate, but it doesn't say how many minutes. I spend about 5 hours(300 minutes), but I'm not a mechanic and it was my first installation.
It is amazing how much stuff these things hold and how much more useful the bike is when you can actually carry something!,

Great boxes, cheap and sturdy!
These are wonderful boxes. Very sturdy and well built. Price is fantastic. They are a bit difficult to mount as you have to drill holes in the boxes yourself to fit your bike. Just take your time and it will come out great! I have the medium. black panniers.

Got the medium size in black with the pannier rack combo. Boxes came quickly within the promised 3 day delivery and we're packaged nicely and in such a way they wouldn't get damaged or scratched in transit. Assembly was strait forward and the included instructions were helpful. Like stated, be sure to loctite everything!

Good panniers a good investment strong and dependable
These are a very tough but still not to heavy set of panniers. They have bent and twisted when crashed in heavy condition s but held in there. Later they could be bought back to original shape with a bit of panel beating. Pity my ankle, knee and ribs couldn't be repaired as quickly.

No regrets, wish I ordered them sooner!
I would definitely recommend these panniers to anyone looking for a budget friendly but high quality set of cases. I mounted them on sw-motech racks using mounting hardware and pucks from happy trails. I ended up choosing the 37L panniers, and they fit everything I wanted locked up or protected. One tip though for anyone that purchases these, put thread locker on the lock tumbler assembly and all other hardware, don’t want those locks coming lose on the highway. Only reason I rated installation lower is just because tusk doesn’t make a rack set for my XR650L.

Is it possible to buy mismatched pair? I want smaller box on the exhaust side to keep the symmetry of the bike.
Piotr P on Sep 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately we cannot mix and match the panniers these are sold in pairs. For example if you order the large you will receive two larger panniers.

Rack that fits a Honda nc700x that is compatible with these cases?
John F on Oct 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: These cases come without holes drilled in them so they can be mounted to a variety of racks with their mounting system. I'm not sure if these will fit the exact racks on your NC700X, but you can determine if these will fit on the racks you have.
Is it possible to get a new set of locks for these? They fell apart on me the first time i took a trip.
thomas g on Jan 6, 2018
BEST ANSWER: yes we do have tusk pannier replacement locks on the website. this is the part number 1522330001.
do these come with the plate the bolts to the back of the pannier? the one that locks into the rack
A shopper on Apr 22, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The boxes came plain with no holes drilled.

If you have an existing or new rack, it was simple to line them up using a tape measure and hold in place using big spring clamps. Take a few moments to stand back and admire, adjust or try different locations. Make sure to mount and dismount the bike and adjust the bags accordingly before drilling.

I used tape on the inside and a large piece of cardboard taped to the outside to draw on, mark final location and as a template for the other bag. Once settled on a location, mark the holes and drill.

I used rubber washers inside and out for waterproof and vibrations concerns. Large fender washers were also used on the inside to help distribute the load per bolt.
Where are these made?
A shopper on Mar 27, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I think I read somewhere that they are Chinese made but the quality is excellent. I've had mine for quite a while and been very impressed. They're on my daily commuter and get plenty of use.
Can I make this work with my 650 Vstrom?(04-09) and what size would work best?
A shopper on Jan 1, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, absolutely you can. I purchased the medium Tusk Panniers and semi-permanently mounted them with pucks onto a set of Givi PL532 Side Case Racks. If you want additional storage, you could easily use the large panniers. I chose medium as I wanted to limited myself and be more thoughtful about what I carry on the bike.
The tusk pannier rack video shows the installation of a top rack. It makes it seem like it's part of the pannier/rack kit. Is it part of the kit? If not, where can I find it. Did a search for 2010 Ktm 990 and didn't show up.
Thx
A shopper on Oct 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The top rack is not part of the kit. Something to think about though: these panniers are bomb proof which is why I bought them for my KLR. Soon after installation I was t-boned in an intersection while riding my HD. Impact was directly behind my right heal. The hard leather saddle bag took the hit and tore off the frame. The bike was totaled but I was uninjured. If I had been hit on the KLR the bombproof panniers would not have separated from the bike and there is no doubt in my mind I would have been seriously injured or even killed. For real.
I have a 2007 BMW F650GS and am looking at the Tusk Aluminum Panniers, will those work with this rack? Also looking for the mounting kit to mount those panniers to this rack. Thanks, Brian

BEST ANSWER: These cases are universal, you make the holes where you want the cases to sit. Very versitile. I even changed the height of my cases after making the first bracket location.I just slapped some black wide electrical tape across the old hole and it still water tight. One thing to keep in mind is the locks that come with the cases suck. Make sure you lock tight and use lock washers.You will lose them if not. If you can find a better supplier for locks that fit the case I would recommend upgrading the locks.Last thing always check your cases are locked before you ride away. I've had mine fly off a few times too many and luckily I was able to find it before someone drove over it.Needs some improvements to the simple design. A bit to narrow. And the opening is a bit to small. Hope that helps.Happy riding.
Poopertrooper, what racks did you use to mount to the Versys. Are those the medium or large panniers? I have a 16 Versys that I want to mount these to.
TYLER V on Jul 26, 2018
BEST ANSWER: i lucked out and found a sw mototec set online, used. he included mounting hardware, i believe, from someone else. send me your email address and i'll take a picture. i really like these boxes and use them all the time.
Can you just buy the panniers and most important will they fit on my ktm steel panier racks if so please explain ? thanks they will go on my ktm 2017 1090 R
jeff v on Jul 10, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hey Jeff,
You can buy just the Panniers. The panniers are 'universal' and will mount to anything that you can attach them to. You would need to buy a pannier mounting kit, available from Rocky Mountain, Happy-trails, Touratech, and others. Easiest way is to take the rack of the bike, lay it on the back side of the pannier, trace the outline, and mark the place to drill the holes for the mounts. You can buy bike specific panniers, pannier racks, and mount kits, but generally they are expensive. I have had lots of panniers, and mounted them using pannier mounts, and also by bolting the panniers directly to the racks. Both work well, pannier mounts are quicker to use.
Good luck,
Danny
I have a sw motech rack for my xr650l and want to know if these would mount to it and hold up or if there's an adapter kit?
Christopher h on Feb 2, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Tusk panniers are very durable and should hold up just fine. I had a pair on my Vstrom for 18,00 miles and then intsalled them on my Honda affica twin. Still good after another15,500 miles.Enter
Will they work on 08 Electra glide?
A shopper on Mar 2, 2017
BEST ANSWER: These are 'universal mount' panniers, meaning they will fit any bike you can attach them to. They are not 'bike specific'. They are just aluminum boxes, you would have to figure out mounting points on your bike and also buy/find/make mounting hardware. I have them mounted them to different bikes in the past (but not Harley), just takes a bit of 'engineering'. It is easiest to mount them to pannier/luggage racks, many companies make racks. Or have a shop mount them for you and/or make mounts for you. Once mounted they are great.
Will these if my 94 dyna wide glide well ?
A shopper on Dec 30, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Unless you are an accomplished fabricator, I don't think so. I think that they are too large to work with a dyna from an appearance standpoint, but since you asked the question i'm guessing that you aren't concerned about looks. I am on my second set of these panniers and will say that they are a great setup for the money. You should be able to fab some mounts that would work.
Hi, everyone!
I would like to know if these large panniers wil fit Rumbux rear crashbars/racks for a 2013 KTM 1190 adventure, if necessary with an installation kit, I'm afraid that after purchase it'll turn out not to fit....?
Wouter V on Aug 27, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hey Wouter,
These 'universal' and will fit anything that you can attach them to, but, you have to do the work. They are not pre-drilled for any racks. I have 2 sets, medium and large, and have them mounted to Rally Raid racks on my honda, using Happy-trails pannier mounting kit, Touratech and Rocky Mountain also have pannier mounting kits. Mine are bolted directly to the racks. Have used them on 1000 mile trips on rough roads and have had no problems with mounts or panniers. I looked at the Rumbux rack online and they should work, might take some engineering. Only thing I am not sure about is the top cross bar on the Rumbux is recessed, so the pannier would only be attached on 3 sides, not 4 like with most racks that are in a loop pattern. They should work fine, but you will have to make them. Otherwise they are great panniers. The locks and hardware are not the best, be sure to check and retighten (using loctite) the lock bolts and any other hardware. I recommend the silver panniers to keep the contents cool. Put on your thinking cap and you should be able to make these work :^) Good luck.

What pannier rack would one recommend for a Honda silverwing?
A shopper on May 4, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I think givi makes a rack that would work with these panniers. You would have to drill your own holes, but they may have a pannier mounting hardware kit also.
