      Tusk Pannier Racks are perfect for all your motorcycle adventure needs. If you have a Dual Sport Motorcycle and need to haul extra gear, Tusk Pannier Racks have you covered. Made from tough ¾" powder-coated steel tubing, these racks are made to hold up. The 4-point mounting system and "bumper support" that links both sides, ensures strength while providing protection to your subframe, side panels, and exhaust.

Whether you want to take the panniers off for a short ride or you need to take them off during an overnight hotel or camping trip, the quick release system makes this simple and convenient. For security measures, an optional included locking knob threads to the rack from inside your panniers. If your panniers are locked, there is no way to remove them from the rack.

The hoop design also makes attaching soft luggage simple as well. For the ultimate set-up, check out the Tusk Aluminum Panniers.

    -m-2017 KTM 1090 Adventure R--
    Why pay an outrageous price when you can buy the tusk pannier racks. I use mine with a set of Nelson Rigg soft panniers (model 3050). Fitment is excellent and installation is so easy a caveman could do it. I only cursed once during the install which is a record for me. The black looks great on my 1090 adventure as well. Its nice to know there is a manufacturer out there that realizes all of us adventure riders arent Bill Gates.

    Tusk pannier racks and top rack
    Let me start off by saying I am a great fan of the Tusk pannier racks. I have bought three sets from RMATV and have tested the first two everywhere from daily store runs to multi week, multi state adventure rides focusing on ghost towns and abandoned gold mines. The first set was mounted on my 2016 KTM 1190 R and the second set on my 2015 KLR 650. I have crashes hard fully loaded and had a dent and a little rebending to do to get back to serviceable. The racks are bulletproof and the boxes hold up well to use and abuse.Even if I completely destroyed a box, which I have not, I could buy a complete rack and box set up for less than most single boxes cost. I have both large and small boxes as well as a set of aluminum plates I built using box mounts so I can use these for rotopax and soft luggage and still be quick release.
    Having spent so much time on creating a system, and because I was so happy with the Tusk sets, I wanted the same racks for my Husqvarna 701. Almost as soon as RMATV created them I ordered a set. They were of the same quality I had come to expect and the top rack was awesome. Large and solid. I had a minor fitment issue and contacted RMATV. Very quickly I was hooked up with a member of the design team. We emailed and talked on the phone to resolve my issue. Just as importantly they gathered information from me including pictures and specifications. This was to not only resolve my issue but to ensure the product was properly built and to avoid potential problems for future buyers. I would give 10 stars for their customer support which is why I will recommend them to others without question. My issue was resolved and it appeared it was an issue directly related to my individual bike. Once fitted the racks were solid, clean, and good looking. I am now able to carry any of the items I already had for my other bikes and most importantly carry up to 3.5 extra gallons of fuel. This doubles the range of my bike.

    Awesome for protecting rear of KTM 1190
    They are awesome value!!! Strong, easy to install, symetrical, hold a 1 gallon RotoPax without impeding protection or storage. I really don't use them for mounting Pannier because I don't like "fat bikes". I did want the protection of the turn signals, exhaust, and the ability to strap things too.
    I did find some very sturdy "Rigid" hardware containers that are water-proof and not very wide. I attached them to the pannier mounts and can slip them on and off in 2 seconds. They are only 7" thick, so not as wide as most panniers. Anyway, I also had these racks powder coated to match the KTM orange. Protection, storage, RotoPax, quick release Pannier box mounts and very affordable!

    -m-2015 KTM 1190 Adventure--
    This is the quick mount after I attached it to the Rigid Hardware Boxes.
    This is the pannier quick mount that comes with the racks.
    This is the Tusk racks (I had powder coated orange) with the narrow "Panniers" in case I need them.
    Top view - notice they are not real wide and are symmetrical.
    This is why I bought them - protection.  Panniers may never be used...

    Tusk Pannier racks install. Honda Africa Twin
    As per other reviews these seem well built and relatively straight forward installation. Near perfect alignments and impressively solid.

    As others have stated, no need to remove the rear rack to drill the holes under the fender. Just remove the bolts and then drill. Not sure why they suggested that. Also agree that the bolts for the passenger pegs should be about 1/4" longer and should of been supplied in the kit rather than utilizing the OEM bolts. I tightened cautiously to avoid striping the threads and plan to replace with longer bolts.

    I have a set of Tusk racks on my KTM 1190 ADV, I'd like to add a Rotopax fuel can. What is the optimal size to fit this rack? It appears to be the 1.75 gallon can, but I can't be sure.
    Thanks.
    A shopper on Nov 6, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: I use 2 one gallon rotopax containers on my Tusk pannier racks. I am able to strap them on using 2 cargo straps in an x configuration. Additionally I use the large pannier boxes which I have mounted rotopax mounts on the top. I ride to camp, remove the boxes, strap on the rotopax, and I am carring extra fuel in a light set up.
    any idea when the production on tusk pannier rack for africa twin will be ready??
    farid r on Aug 23, 2016

    Are there racks available that will fit the Yamaha XT250 .. perhaps with some home-toolshop modification/s?
    Brian S on Feb 12, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I think that they will fit your bike. Just order it under the xr250 or the other 250 Yamaha style. If you already have a set Of racks you may be able to put just the boxes. But you wouldn't be able to remove them. These are really big boxes for a 250. Just so you know... and there are 2 sizes. Big and bigger. I am happy with mine... i still had to do a bit of shall we say finesseing To get a fit but nothing major. Better than my original boxes.

    can the pin assembly be removed from the rack frame or is the pin permanently in there?
    Scott A on Nov 6, 2017
    Is there a way to relocate the quick release cable to be inside the box? I think its way too easy for someone to pull the boxes off and steal them. I'd feel way better about a way to pull that cable from inside the box. Keep the box locked from the outside and when you want to remove them open it and release from inside.
    Scott S on May 18, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: They come with a (wing) bolt that goes inside the box so there are safe from would be thieves. You can put the bolt on or leave it off (optional)
    Can you still use passenger pegs on the KTM 690 enduro with the Tusk pannier racks? The video show some on there, the description says they are removed. Thanks
    Donald F on Dec 27, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: on a 2016 690 the stock pegs must be removed. The rack has a location ( hole ) to mount a footpeg BUT it will not accommodate the stock KTM pegs.
    Are the Tusk racks made to be symmetrical in relation to the bike and account for a wide exhaust on one side of a bike like the KTM 1190 Adventure?
    Robert C on Oct 18, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Fits my 1190 beautifully! They are symmetrical, this means that there left side panniers leaves a bit of space between the bike and pannier, Tusk have included a mounting point for a Rotopax system in this space so that it can be used, I also strap my camping chair into this space.
    I can't speak highly enough of Mr Tusk panniers, I have also stopped there bikes on then more than once with boxes both on and off, once at speed which saved my expensive Zard full carbon exhaust and other times with the boxes on and they have loved to tell the tale over and over.
    I would highly recommend these.
    Where is the optional included rotopax mounting bar?
    Samuel H on Feb 1, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: I was not aware of a *included* optional rotopax mounting bar. I don't recall seeing anything about it prior to ordering. Cheers!
    how do you mount the rotopax mounting plate on the 950 adventure rack?
    John C on Mar 13, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I'm not 100% sure the 950 is the same as the 1190, but on my 1190, Tusk has a cross piece on the left (shifter) side for the RotoPax adapter to mount to. It is not shown in the picture, but the bar is there. You will need to buy the RotoPax and the RotoPax Adapter separately. What is very nice (at least for the 1190), is the panniers are spaced out the same so the bike is symmetrical from the rear. Since the exhaust is inside the pannier rack on the right, the open space on the left is then filled with the RotoPax. Should you fall to the left, the RotoPax is protected by the Pannier Rack (RotoPax is stored between the rear wheel and the pannier rack).
    WR250R...is the Tusk Racks symmetrical? I would like to add either a Rotopax or tool tube on the inside of the left rack.
    Kurt on Oct 30, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Yes and No, there is room to mount a tool tube however with the cross bar a Rotopax will not fit. At least a 2 gal will not fit, I do not have 1 gal to test fit.
    Can this be made to work with Honda CB500X?
    Eric W on Feb 7, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: Fits KTM 690, but maybe ok for it
    May need to modify mounts
    Is there a plate for this rack that mounts a one gallon rotopax, or do you have to make your own? 2015 DRZ400S.
    Eric B on Jan 20, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: There is not a plate per se. There are mounting brackets both sides that you could attach a plate to attach the Rotopax hardware. I would buy a second set of mounting brackets for the tusk rack that way you could easily switch out the rotopax to panniers and back.

    Will the 2017 KTM 690 Enduro rack work on a 2017 Husky 701 E?
    A shopper on Aug 24, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: probably, I don't have the Husky 701, but it is basically the same bike, just blue instead of orange. I think it's a very good rack. On retrospec I should have bought the Touratech rack because my touratech aluminum bags and my Kriega plates doe not fit on it. I was hoping to be able to swap between all my bikes. You can not do that. The Tusk racks and Aluminum combo is the cheapest way you can go and the quality is top notch. I bought a pair for my son in law's KLR.
    I have Tusk panniers but Tusk does not make a rack for my Africa Twin 650 RD03 i was thinking about buying a rack for a diffrent bike and modifying it to fit, so my question is which bike would be the closest to my africa twin or is it maybe possible to buy all of the mounting hardware and just make my own rack from scratch ?
    Kristján Grímur H on Mar 6, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I cannot say if this racking system will fit your bike it fits perfectly on my drz650. I thought about fabricating something that would fit a little differently on my bike but from all the reviews and online videos it shows that this mounting system works great for my bike. I have not checked about your kind of bike and the type of mounting hardware you will need period I am sorry I cannot give you an accurate answer for the kind of mounting hardware you will need for your kind of bike good luck to you.
    I have a 2012 bmw r1200gs adventure. Exhaust is on the left side. Will the tusk rack for 2012 gs as noted fit my bike??
    John K on Nov 21, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: To be honest I have a KLR650 so I can only speak to that specific rack. Based on the RM pics It appears it will fit. I had assemble it loose and tighten equally around the set up. I did have an issue as do most people with any rack system the holes aren’t exactly true to the rear sub-frame. But that was on a used klr that I bought. This set up should work well for your GS. Good luck have fun. They are excellent racks !!

    Can the Tusk panniers be fitted to the Rumbux pannier racks? This is for a Honda AT
    Daniel M on May 16, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: The Tusk panniers come with no mounts or mounting holes, so if your racks come with their own specific mounting plate, it can likely be attached to these panniers. The Tusk mounting plates will only fit the Tusk racks.
