Bomber, works like a dream with the tusk frame mounting system. Have used it on some gnarly single track with my Nelson Riggs soft luggage, no problems.

Works ok with pilot bags
I got this, the racks and the pilot bags and so far everything fits already. It looks durable. One issue: I wish there was a better to mount your soft luggage (the pilot bags) to the soft luggage mount instead of the included straps. It is very cumbersome. I am tempted to use zip ties. Yes, I watched the video on how to attach, and even sent pictures to Rocky mountain about how I did the straps. They still came loose at one point. Not cool. If anyone knows a way to safely mount these better, please let me know.

well made. don't know about durability yet, it's -30 today. Also have Tusk mounting plate and tusk pannier rack so can switch between hard and soft panniers. Good deal.

Rocky Mtn bags and hard mount
I bought the hard mounts to go with the bags that I had purchased earlier. Overall I'm very satisfied with both. There are a couple of things that could use improvement in my opinion. First is the strap mounts that tie the bags to the plate. They really don't have a good attachment point to cinch down after you run them through the bracket. They aren't long enough to reach back to the cinch bracket on the bag itself. You really have to be inventive to figure out a way to make them secure so they won't come loose on the trail. The pictures that came with the instructions are pretty worthless as they are too dark to make out anything. the other thing I improved on is the plate itself. I put some cut plastic tubing on the strap mounting cutouts otherwise I could see the straps wearing through on the somewhat sharp edges over time. These are minor complaints for a otherwise good product.

Use with soft bags
Picked these up to make it easier the mount the Nelson Rigg Sierra Dry Bags . Assembly is simple . Makes putting on and taking off my soft bags easy and simple . Haven't had much time with them but should prove to be worth the money .

Strong and Sturdy
System is of good quality and held very well on my last major ride (Wa BDR). Just make sure you use "Lcck Tite" for added securement.

Good but with a very inportant caveat
The mounting plates are very heavy duty but the only thing I can say I don't like about them is that the loop holes on the exterior perimeter of the plates that you run your pannier hanging straps through have very sharp inside edges. I ended up taping the edges with gaffing tape to prevent the edges from prematurely cutting through my pannier bag hanging straps. Too bad the insides weren't beveled out to protect hanging straps.

Game Changer for me!
The Tusk soft luggage mount is the perfect solution for easy removal and installation of soft sided bags. They are nicely made, and have a nice finish. Install is about as fast as you can secure your bag to the tusk plate. Now the bags go on and off in seconds!

Exactly what I was looking for
These could not have worked better. Great quality very easy installation my NelsonRigg bags strap right up no problem. The price is great for what you get could not have asked for anything better. Would not hesitate to recommend these to anybody.

Is it possible to purchase just the CNC laser cut 3/16” plates (pair) only? I have a pair of the Tusk Pannier racks, which includes the removable quick release brackets, so would not need a second set of the quick release brackets that attach the CNC cut aluminum plate to the pannier rack. Just want to buy a pair of the CNC laser cut aluminum plates. I can then attach them to the brackets I already have.
Thanks
Larry B on Sep 13, 2019
BEST ANSWER: We only sell them in kits at this time.
Do you sell just the plate by itself without the mounting hardware?
A shopper on Jan 15, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately, we do sell just the plate without the hardware. I apologize for any inconvenience.
If I already have the Tusk hard case pannier rack with the mounting assembly, can I buy this with just the mounting plate only?
Spencer W on Jun 6, 2019
BEST ANSWER: when you say mounting plate are you talking about the quick release brackets that attach to the mounting plates shown. Not sure what kind of Tusk racks you have. If you have the quick release racks then you should just need the brackets and not the plates. Love the plates they work great but I have soft NelsonRigg bags. Not sure if that helps you or not. Guess the bottom line is with hard panniers you would just need the brackets. Not exactly sure of your set up.
When using soft panniers with the system, do I need to use the straps that go over the passenger seat or can I cut those off and use the system without them?
A shopper on Dec 22, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I specifically purchased the Tusk Pannier Soft Luggage Mounts for my Giant Loop Mototrekk bags to allow for quick release and removal from my bike (Husqvarna 701) without using an over-the-seat strapping system. The back is a high grade aluminum with plenty of mounting options using straps. Point to consider as I did - the slots in the back plate were either punched or cut with a milling machine which left the edges rather precise (and borderline sharp) enough to cut through straps given enough time with the bags bouncing during off-road fun. I used a Dremel tools with a sanding drum and rounded the inner and outer edges where the straps wrapped and repainted the plate with black rustoleum. Next, to further reduce the abrasion, I wrapped the anchor areas using 550 Paracord to act as a buffer between the back plate and the straps before mounting the bags. I know this is far and above what most would do, but I had the time and desire to take it all to another level. I also modified the bolt-on anchor brackets that engage the pannier racks to make them more form-fitting and minimize any rattles. But to answer your initial question - I would suggest looking closely at the bags you are considering to make sure the strapping system on your bag will provide adequate support under load without the need for over-the-seat straps. Let me know if you need (or want) photos of the Tusk Paniers installed - great bag systems from Rocky Mountain ATV and MC.
can I mount 3 gallon rotopax fuel tank?
Ehab H on Mar 3, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Instead of a soft bag yes you could mount a rotopax to it. 1,3 or other size if you wanted.
Can you please confirm these would fit with "Happy Trails SU Side Rack Yamaha XT250"? I understand new holes may need to be drilled. Thank you
Khristopher D on Apr 11, 2020
BEST ANSWER: The system is designed for use with the Tusk Pannier Racks, to fit on other panniers you may need to drill new mounting holes. Since this is designed specifically for the Tusk Racks, we cannot guarantee it will work or not. However, I will send this to customer who have purchased this item to see if they have tried it.
Hi guys! Do these work with racks of a different brand (lets say Givi)? If not, do you produce racks for BMW R1150GS to fit with these? Thanks
Sokol D on Aug 27, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The system is designed for use with the Tusk Pannier Racks, to fit on other panniers you may need to drill new mounting holes. Each plate is CNC laser cut from 3/16" aluminum for a light weight, durable mount.
dimensions?
A shopper on Mar 12, 2020
BEST ANSWER: roughly 12" high by 15" wide
Will Mosko Moto 35L soft panniers work with these mounting plates? Want to be able to install without Gerry rigging them?
JEFF C on Jan 10, 2020
BEST ANSWER: We cannot guarantee that these will fit that system without modifications.
I have factory racks on my 690 without a quick release setup. How would I get these off and on quickly?
A shopper on Jan 6, 2020
BEST ANSWER: These only work with the Tusk racks.
Will these work with the Pilot Panniers and Moose Racing racks (https://www.rockymountainatvmc.com/parts/moose-racing-expedition-aluminum-side-case-mounts-p)?
George C on Dec 29, 2019
BEST ANSWER: These only work with the Tusk racks
I have the KTM/Touratech racks on my KTM 1090. Would the pannier mounts work with these racks?
Gregory G on Dec 23, 2019
BEST ANSWER: not by default - the brackets that mount to the rack with this kit are specialized to fit the way the Tusk pannier racks lock in. You could maybe find another way to connect the big metal plates to your Touratech rack, but you’d probably be better off with the Giant Loop quick-release pannier mounts, which are customizable to fit many different racks
I already have the mounting hardware from when I bought the tusk rack. Can I get the plates by themselves?
Ian L on Nov 24, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately we don't sell the plates separate.
Can this work with Giant Loop Round the World Panniers?
KEIG C on Oct 6, 2019
BEST ANSWER: These work with mostly all soft luggage. The system is designed for use with the Tusk Pannier Racks, to fit on other panniers you may need to drill new mounting holes. Each plate is CNC laser cut from 3/16" aluminum for a light weight, durable mount.
Can you use the 1.75 gal. RotopaX with this set up, I see the 1 gal. will work just wondering about 1.75 gal.?
Heath B on Jul 3, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I haven't tried the Rotopax 1.75 or thr 1 gallon. I do find the mounts make putting on and taking off the bags much easier.
How much do the plates and mounting hardware weigh?
George M on Sep 30, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The plates are 3 lbs each and then plus the mounting hard ware.
How much do these weigh per pair?
Jonathan W on Sep 19, 2018
BEST ANSWER: These will be about 11 pounds.
Are these racks only quick release when used with the Tusk rack, or do they also function that way when used with another rack brand (like SW Motech)?
