    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. This is a complete kit with all the mounting hardware to outfit your bike for the next adventure.

Excellent value for the price

Comments On Sep 14, 2015:I've had these for a year now and would purchase them again. While the finish is a bit crude, they have held up very well and still function perfectly even after a few lay downs. The only warning I would give is that they will grab your ankle on whichever boot you put down when stopping or cornering until you get used to them.

Tusk panniers

Comments On Aug 27, 2015:Just finished installing the large set of panniers it went pretty smoothly and they truly are a great valve for the money, at least a third of other panniers. It just took a little adjustment to be able to lock them into place ( one washer behind mounting bracket) But here is some very good advise take all the mounting nuts for the entire assembly ( especially the acorn nuts ) and replace them with nylock nuts so they won't come loose. I've read were people have lost parts from the nuts coming loose. Other than that there great .Happy trails.

Great Kit, Added Crash Protection for Me

Comments On Aug 19, 2015:I really tested the build quality on this kit earlier this year. I crashed my KLR off-road and in the sand, a tank-slapper developed at like 35mph. So we went down hard 'lowside' style, and when the tires dug into the sand the bike went back in the air and did a full 360 kinda sideways or like a barrel roll. I broke my collarbone; the bike was ok, ridable, the damage was mainly to the front subframe and fairings ect. In the rear, the cast piece that serves as the passenger grab handle and cargo rack support, and where these bags attach through, fractured in one place. I have completely disassembled the bike since, the rear subframe is as straight as from the the factory. And the subframe that comes with these panniers is slightly bent but will even out with some added spacers on one side I think. I dont know how TUSK is offering this kinda quality based on their prices I was skeptical initially. In using these panniers before crashing I really liked them, easy to mount too, looking forward to loads more miles from them.

You will get what you pay for

Comments On Aug 08, 2015:After taking about four hours to install and upgrade the very shoddy cable tie/ attachment system, I feel confident that these boxes will do great for grocery grabbing. Would I trust them on an expedition? Not a chance. Basically you get a decent rack system that you can mount wolfman bags to, and some laughable tin cans that will certainly make you look like the big adventure rider as you ride around town with them. Watch the video. Then watch it again, and maybe one more time because the written directions are missing the entire blinker extension and stabilizer mount directions. If you are not handy, get ready to cry, swear, or both.
These do not take "minutes" to install, unless you call 160 minutes minutes. Get loctite on EVERY connection and do not think that the "anti theft knob" is an option. It is essential to ensure you do not lose your cans when really hitting the trail. Normally tusk does ok for entry level items, but the thought of having these things hauling my essential gear on something like a back country discovery route makes me break out in a cold sweat.
You have been warned.

Not good not bad

Comments On Aug 02, 2015:I had a good review written but the website lost it, so..
1. The locks sucks. Do the best you can to tighten and loctited all moving parts. 2. Racks mounted with ease. No b.s. 3. I centered my brackets on the bags and location on the bike is perfect. 4. I had to file the quick release pin hole to get the bag on after the bracket was mounted. 5. Wish there was a locking system for the pin. 6. All in all great bang for the buck

Poor quality -- made in China

Comments On Jun 19, 2015:Boxes seem sturdy, rack required fitting, grinding, drilling and additional hardware. Locks fell apart after two weeks of riding, rear signal wiring harness called for splicing that wasn't necessary (very unhappy about that).... I'm a machinist and still had to struggle with the parts. Lids no longer lock. Made in China. I'm being generous and giving them two stars since they haven't fallen off the bike......yet. Good luck.

The Glock of panniers

Comments On May 20, 2015:Very happy with the quality of this product. The install is very strait forward. For my bike I had to add length to both turn signal wires. The full install took around 2.5 hours. The rack went on on very quickly . Turn signal relocation went just as expected and drilling the holes to add the brackets to he pannier boxes went without a hitch. The only hiccup I had was that the holes for the quick disconnect pin to remove the panniers if you want to take them off the bike was not drilled on the center of the bracket. Even with the supplied washers they were just enough off that the pins would not go through the hole ( They were both off by about 1/16 ") . 2 minutes and a drill bit corrected this problem. This rack and pannier system is the essence of KLR. It is stout , no frills and functional. The locking mechanisms are of reasonable quality and the lids have mounts you can us to tie down additional gear if needed. The panniers themselves have tons of room in them to hold stuff. If your looking for a solid set of hard cases on a budget buy these. They look good , They work well and they don't break the bank.

Love this setup

Comments On Apr 25, 2015:Great boxes, seal well. The pannier racks bolted on perfectly and are really solid (I lift the back of my bike up by them regularly). The price is amazingly low for what you get! I mounted my a little lower than I would have liked to accommodate my bow case so the boxes will hit my feet if I get them underneath the boxes off road; mount them as high as you can if you ride off road a lot. Very pleased with them overall!

Awesome bags

Comments On Mar 15, 2015:These are great bags for the price, tons of storage and they look good too. Easy to install, I didn't cut the blinker wire and extend it like the directions said, I was able to pull the wire through and had about 1" extra. I would definitely recommend these to anyone looking for hard cases. These are the best bang for your buck out there.
