    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.

  • 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. 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. 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.

Comments On Aug 29, 2015:Fit was a little tough on the release pins. The mounting bolts can get in the way. Once past the installation issue, they are great for the price.

Great for the money

Comments On Aug 24, 2015:Ordered these since they are actually affordable. Got the Dirt Racks pannier mounts, which are decent, but I would recommend going with the Tusk ones, since they have better features. Ordered the large, boy, they are huge! They mounted up quite nice and out of the way on my 2013 KLR though, look great, work awesome. Couple things I would change, a strip of aluminum backing would be good at the mounting points as its just the sheet metal holding things, the lock cylinder fell out of one, which is concerning. Emailed RMATV, they are sending me out replacements at no cost. For those of us without Motech money, this is the best deal out there.

Comments On May 01, 2015:Put a set of these panniers on my KLR 650 went on quick with no problems. Rode Big Bend 750 miles on dirt roads and trails only one nut came loose.

minor issues but a great buy

Comments On Dec 29, 2014:These are very inexpensive compared to any other option for aluminum panniers. Quality has only a few issues and that is with the paint and hardware. The paint had several blemishes including orange peel and drips. These issues are not a big deal to me because it got several conspicuity stickers added to cover the areas plus the bike will end up getting scratched at some point. The hardware was loose and I lost one of the clips on top. Change out the hardware or lock-tight it all. Latches and lock are working well so far.

Good bags

Comments On Oct 11, 2014:I've had these on my adv bike for about a year now and they are holding up very well. I mounted them using the happy trails universal kit.
Luckily I have not been down with these bags on, but I feel that they could handle a tip over if it happened. I think they are made very well.

Decent Boxes

Comments On Jul 16, 2014:For street bikes and stuff, these are great, just like other reviewers have said. However, if you plan to use these on an adventure bike or dual sport, be forewarned... due to their very lightweight construction, they bend very easily. My DR650 tipped over with these boxes attached and full of camping gear. The impact was enough to put a rather large dent on the inside of the right-side box where it attaches to my Happy Trail rack. I was able to straighten it using a floor jack and a block of wood, plus some pounding with a large rubber mallet. I'm no longer going to use them on that bike; they will be for my V-Strom instead. Still, if I ever go down on it, it will likely destroy the box.

Awesome Quality for the Price

Comments On Apr 23, 2014:Well built, light weight, nice hardware, secure locks, and good weather sealing. Mounted these on a Buell Ulysses using a mounting rack I had been using to hold up a pair of 20mm ammo cans. These aren't as cool looking as the ammo cans, but they have much more room. I added some small LED running lights and a couple larger handles on the tops so the wife-unit can have her grab handles.
Added a 1 gallon RotoPAX to one of them. I used an aluminum plate on the inside as additional support. The stock aluminum by itself would probably work, but I wanted to make sure the weight was well spread out. One good thing about these compared to the $1,500/pair sets is that you could screw them up and not feel too financially hurt ordering a new pair.

Comments On Mar 03, 2014:These are tremendous value for money. Looks as good as panniers that cost twice as much, very sturdy and complements the bike's looks. I haven't crash tested them yet, but these appear every bit as strong as Touratech's. I am very happy with these.
