They should mount to nearly anything, because they arrive with the mounting hardware, but the box is not predrilled to allow just that. If Hepco & Becker rack is like the one mine came with, each side is basically a rounded rectangle of tubing attached to the bike.
Mounting hardware in my kit consisted of Nylon (or something like nylon) blocks that you mount to grab that rectangle. The top and bottom blocks (2 each) are routed to hold the case approx 3/16" off the rectangle of tubing. These top and bottom blocks are routed out to fit over about 180 degrees of the tube. Top blocks go attop the rectangle, bottom blocks go inside the rectangle so the case basically hangs on your mount. Two more blocks routed about 90 degrees around the tubng are mounted inside the rectangle on the verticle sections to provide fore and aft anchoring. Being slick nylon, you can mount things very snug for zero vibration/wear. Everything is secured from theft by one nylon block that you can mount anywhere, but it surrounds the tube with knurled bolts from inside the case. It is a VERY secure system, and only takes about 30 seconds per side to mount or dismount.
One of these days I'll get some photos, but if you watch the mounting video on the website a couple of times, you'll see how quick it is.
Oh, get a friend to help hold during the marking and mounting. You can do it by yourself, but if you do remeasure after every single hole you drill.

At first I wasn't charmed with the construction (all those rivets vs welded seams). However, that changed as I had to reshape things a bit because the postal service banged mine up a bit in shipping. It was nice to be able to drill out the rivets, use wood blocks to flatten the dings, and rerivet (I replaced w/ stainless screws and nyloc nuts for easier field repair). While I had the lids off I added reinforcing plate of aluminum inside the box where the hinges and locks attach. You also get a couple extra corner blocks should you REALLY bang things up. After that little bit of reworking, I realized these things are VERY easily field repairable if you replace the rivets with screws, and easily shop repairable if you don't. The paint is quite good also. The paint seems to be good quality also, mine haven't shown any branch scratches yet. The corner blocks are very well sealed, and upon arrival I latex sealed the inside seams of the box itself. So far, not water gets in even when I'm washing the bike with a strong flow from garden hose. I'd wager, submerging is the only way to get any significant water inside.

You can't go wrong for the price!

Maybe we should start a "tweaking" page for owners of these.

For the price you can't beat them.

Hi lauramarginean,

I am looking for panniers for my KTM adventure.
What would the total cost be (2 panniers (normal silver ones), mounting hardware & postage to Belgium)?

Thanks!

hello

For your bike i can made the panniers and the rapid mounting kits.
The racks sistem now its not aviable,for-like pattern after you execute
seems to have little direfente
We copied it from a bike that I
that was dropped and rear chassis
I think it was less traveled
Hence these differences.
Now look for a different engine then you can do ok for model
2 panniers 230euro
2rapid mounting kit for 18mm pipe 42euro
shiping to Belgium 62euro

Do you have any photos of the rapid mount system? By itself and attached to a rack?

For the record I have a Tiger 800 XC and live in the USA. Your panniers are gorgeous!

Sorry to hear about your illness! Get well soon!

They mount easy enough. Now, what's keeping them in place? Do you have any means of locking them to the rack like the TraX panniers? The photo doesn't display it but a lock can be used for both latches.

Do you make pannier racks for the F800GS? I'm looking for ones that don't require a top rack. If you do, what would the price be?
