Anyone know where to get one OEM side case?

I'm about to buy an 09 DL650A with one OEM case. The other was stolen out of the previous owner's car. So I need a right side case. Any ideas? Or should I fit Pelicans to the OEM racks?

Fit the Pelicans. I used Sea Horse cus I found a pair cheap. The P and SH's don't break when you crash with them. Factory units are not as strong.
I used the factory mounts and took the mounting hardware off and used those holes to bolt the SH's on.

If not long stolen check Craigs list ,may be for sale now cheap.If not buy one of any kind.You just look at one side at a time. My late dad was a good wrench and loved to trade. He got lots of old D.O.A. cars/trucks running good again and sold them fast. He hated bare wheels and all ways saved old hub caps from donor drive line ones he got. If only two alike he put on one side and try to find a pair close for the other side. So many that bought them never spotted it till he told them ."You cain't see both sides at once",was dads line.

They have Sea Horse bags reasonably.

Multicomp 22" Black Tactical Weatherproof Equipment Case | 22-24120 (2224120) | Multicomp Another choice. It's endless.

They fit the same on either side AFAIK ...there is no left and right - might make easier

No dice

I actually saw a left-side pannier on E-Bay and almost bought it, but decided I better check the "duality" first. Nope. One might be able to adjust where the top bracket/plate is on the rack to make it work, but if I'm going to spend money, I want to know it's going to work before making the investment.

Pelicans are starting to look, if not better, than at least more realistic.
