    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.

2019 DR650s
Fit medium Tusk panniers on Suzuki Dr650s 2019 didn't have to use turn signal extension. Only difference win instructions was I had to use long bolts in top back end of bracket, my spacers were in different place than instruction. Could be because I had tail bracket on bike.

Great aluminum panniers
Aluminum panniers were great. They are setup and easier to put together. I liked the ability to mount them how I wanted to the quick attach, which gave me my choice of placement for each pannier. Only issue was you have to shun them with the extra washers so that they fully attach to the racks.

Great travel bags
The larges are exactly what they mean LARGE. These have been a great addition to the bike, I love how simple they are, for the price you can’t beat it. Also with them being cheaper I’m not afraid to modify them like I would on a $1k set of panniers.

Great Panniers at a Great Price
Installed them with ease on my 2014 Tiger 800 using the Happy Trails pannier racks. Wish that Tusk would have built pannier racks for the Triumph Tiger 800 but I am very pleased with the Happy Trails version.

tons of space
I can fit a weeks worth of groceries in these panniers including 12 packs of soda and a gallon of milk. Makes camping a breeze as well, keeps all your equipment dry and safe. They do stick out quite a bit and produce a noticable amount of drag.

Good for the price.
Overall a decent purchase with the exception of the welds on the boxes, they look like the new guy did the work. Also, I would recommend replacing the provided nuts and bolts with higher grade for the sake of durability. I snapped an 8x35mm bolt while torquing to 20 foot pounds. Most likely a fluke, but that put it in my mind that the bolts are weak. Instructions are well written but pictures are horrible. YouTube university is the place to go for this install.

Solid boxes for the money. Can't beat the price. Welds are not that nice but at this price point can easily look past that. Finish is nice. Use blue thread locker as recommended.

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 there hardware available to mount these boxes to the standard pannier racks on a Royal Enfield Himalayan?
A shopper on Nov 21, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately we don't have any specs for that machine to determine if any of the racks would fit.
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.
Can I open just one lock end use the other a a hinge for the lid? For a quick open/ close operation...
A shopper on May 3, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes and No. When you lift the open end the locked side clasp will drop off of the lip of the hinge unless you hold it in place. So, if you are just looking and you hold the locked side clasp in place then yes, once you move your hand holding the locked side the clasp, falls.
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.
Can these be mounted to a 2015 DL 650?
Rob O on Mar 6, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I mounted them to an NC750xD that had sw-motech racks. Of course, I had to drill holes and buy mounting hardware (bolts, nuts, and washers). Also, they are not "removable".
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
Hi. The Tusk Alumminium Paniers fit on a Hepco Becker Lock-it side carrier Rack?
A shopper on Jul 18, 2019
BEST ANSWER: If your bike does not need one side to be a cut out and can be a balanced set up, you would have two even tube surfaces to work with. I do not see so far on the Hepco Becker website the mounting hardware that would be mounted on the pannier bag itself. If you are able to obtain the bag side hardware you would be good to go...hope that is of some help..happy trails!!
Where can I buy one plastic loop that are bolted to the top of the Tusk pannier top? One of mine fell off.
Fernando F on Mar 4, 2019
BEST ANSWER: These are fairly common. I used to build kayaks a while back and we would install these same loops. You could maybe try an outdoors style sportshop who deals in kayaks.
I also worked in a distribution center for quad and watercraft parts. Not sure what they went on, but it was the yellow brand. You could also try there.
Hope this helps
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, are these rack suitable for Yamaha xtz 250 Tenere model 2019?
A shopper on Apr 23, 2019
BEST ANSWER: they can be mounted but I would not advise doing so: they are heavy, have sharp edges (bad during fall), lid locks must be locked both sides and they do not work as hinges like they do on other panniers (moose racing for example)
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.
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.
Do you have pannier racks to fit a 1984 BMW R80 G/S?
Gregory G on Feb 7, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I have looked into this and it doesn't look like we have that rack for your machine.
Do these fit crf250l prior to 2017?
Frank U on Aug 30, 2019
BEST ANSWER: if there is a compatible rack for crf250l then they fit :) I would recommend soft panniers though...
If buying for a frica twin should I buy both same size or one smaller for exaust side? Can these attach to a giving cam lock system rack?
A shopper on Nov 27, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Sold only as same size pairs.
Right side maybe half an inch further from center line.
I have had no problem with that.
Only fits the Tusk rack. Simple and robust quick release.
Locking hasps and optional inner pin make them safe against theft.
what is the weight of one box, medium and large?
Piotr P on Sep 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The medium box weighs about 10 pounds each and the large box weighs about 13 pounds each.
Are there replacement pieces for the plastic mounting piece for the box that goes to the rail?? mine stripped out and fell off while out riding
A shopper on Apr 17, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I believe you're talking about the knob that secures the pannier to the rack, from the inside. It you are, you could make a run to your local hardware store and pick up an M8 bolt of the same length, add a fender washer underneath the bolt head, too. You could also buy a knob and bolt and fix the two together. Otherwise, I would email customer service and hopefully they can replace it.
What racking system would I need to mount these Tusk bags on my 2016 BMW F700 GS?
