Pelican panniers for an FZ6?

I want to get some panniers for my Fazer, and as far as locking options go, pelicans seem to be the cheapest and i love the look. I'm thinking I can get a full setup for <$400.

So, has anyone done this? What mount should I get? They do not need to be quick detachable. What cases?

Thanks!

What year fz6 do you have? It will help with options.
Also look into givi e21 panniers. You can find them pretty cheap and they are fairly roomy. Not nearly as tough as pelicans though.

Your question is fairly specific. You might have more luck on the fz6 forum "600 riders"

I had a look for panniers for mine but decided don't really need them

You might want to start with finding a rack that fits your bike...

Pelicans can mount to just about anything. Case size depends on how bad you pack for a trip...

BTW I ended up going with Cortech Super 2.0 saddlebags. The cost of hard panniers just isn't worth the benefit of lock-ability

I have a Givi E50 top case on my dl650. I bought it in'99 for about $300 including hardware. This is the 6th bike it has been on. Pretty cheap in the long run, if you ask me.
