KLR650 racks and Panniers

Just getting back from Sturgis I've begun readying my bike for a U.P. trip. I purchased the Tusk racks because of the detach mechanism on the rack. The bags were a challenge. I wanted to use O/D green Pelican 1550 cases but found Plano 108031 locking pistol cases. The Plano cases are very close to the size of the Pelican. Being a cheap KLR owner saving the $50.00 per case was appealing. O/D green may seem an odd choice of color for most. My bike is the M1030B1 military KLR and comes in beautiful O/D green. I'll post pics as I get to work.

The Tusk kit came with all necessary hardware. It even includes an extension for the turn signal wiring which has to be relocated. The wiring kit is a crimp on deal, not what I'm using. I will use factory style bullet plugs.

I followed the simple instructions and it took me less than 15 mins. to install everything but the turn signals. More to come when the Plano's arrive.

I bought the Tusk racks as well and having a buddy weld up some aluminum panniers this week. I had an old diamond plate tool box laying around. I'm hoping the mounts don't rattle too much with the pannier on there though!
