Here are the specs



A= 580mm or 22 13/16"
B= 44mm or 17 5/16"
C= 330mm or 13"
D= 60mm or 2 3/8 "
E= 270mm or 10 5/8"

Sounds a bit thick on C, the bags I have been looking at, the 1550's are much thinner.
Looking at the other explorer bags the 5822 looks pretty good!

Bump, cause I miss Ricardo! best of luck Senior Suave.

And a note for you DIY folks: I read in another thread that Pelican might be coming out with a larger version of their top loading 1430 that's the one everyone wants for panniers. Fingers crossed!

And how about a link to some nice accessories for the 1430:

I like #1439 - Lid Organizer - looks handy

Has anyone used these brackets for the 1430 to rig a rack?

Here's my Pelican 1500 top case on my DL650. Perfect size to hold my soft side brief case containing a IBM Stinkpad, portfolio, pda, etc... The briefcase fills the entire case. Very simple to install, get longer bolts for the two rear rack bolts. I also used a third near the back through an existing rack hole. Remove the rack, bolt on the back bolt/nut and then replace the rack. Ignore the plastic plugs on the case, the first time I installed it , the case was too far forward and you could not remove the seat.

Excellent. Can your mount be modified to be quick release? (aka take off bike to carry into tent/motel/house and put on again to depart)

The only problem with that is the contents must be removed to access the wingnuts in the bottom of the case; unless they are on the outside of the case.

To make the top case quick release, you'd need to engineer some type of base plate with a QR lock and then bolt the case to that top plate. Should be pretty easy with some patio door locks and a bit of sturdy plastic or metal.

Pelican 1550 Case & top box on DR650

Here is the set up I just made for Pelican 1550 side cases & a top box for
my '06 DR650 Suzuki. I designed the case racks so the cases can be
slide on & off in seconds, with the cases locked in place with padlocks.
The cases attach to the racks by brackets on the cases. The bottom
bracket is U shaped & slides onto the lower rail of the racks. The upper
brackets have 3/8" X 1 1/4" pins that slide into place on the upper part of
the racks, the front one into the top rail tube & the rear one into a short tube
welded on top of the upper rail. The lower rack rail is covered with a piece
of 3/4" ID auto heater hose & the pins are covered with 3/8" ID fuel hose
which makes the cases rubber mounted, thus no rattles. The front hose is
about twice as long as the pin, which allows the front pin to start first
making it easier to align the rear pin to slide the case into place. The racks
are very strong & are lighter than they look. The case racks together weigh
about 8.5 lbs. & the tail rack is 4.5 lbs.

Here are some pics of the bike with the cases on & off & a set of 4 pics
showing how the cases slide onto the racks.

Best way to mount Pelicans

Check out this thread: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=102759

Totally bombproof, very easy to use, lockable and removeable.
