I have a pelican 1550 topcase and love it's toughness. A question about the sw motech sidecase mounting system. I noticed it only took a couple of hours for your install, are the motech racks a simple, self explanatory install? I have them arriving tomorrow along w/ hepco&becker gobi enduro sidecases.

For that matter, any bolt on my bike could be removed and a part stolen. The luggage boxes are just one more part of the bike. I'm just trying to keep honest people honest. I tend not to park my motorcycle "on the wrong side of town".

I can see that the SW-Motech rack provides security, and one can also lock up the Pelicans, but isn't that all compromised if the bolts mounting the cases to the rack are exposed? Any solutions to this problem?

Please Post a Picture of the back.
Congrats on the new bags. They look great. Everyone talks about how wide the SWM racks are. Could you post a picture to show the the bike from the back? Greatly appreciated. Tk

Here's what 1520 Pelicans look like.
Here's a nice write up on how to put the Pelicans 1520s on (scroll down). http://verlenelson.com/vstrom/
I thought I'd like the silver with my Gray Strom, those black look great on the gray. Ponder
Thanks for posting Coho, look great.

Good job, I did the same recently, and I am equally as happy.
How did you do the stays?
How are you going to do the locks? I am currently using padlocks, but would love to figure out how to have internal locks, ala Carabou.

What size/model Pelicans are those? Thx.

FINALLY got the Pelicans + SW motech Racks installed !
YES! thanks to the information on this site, I am SUPER happy to announce how unbelievably well these fit on the bike, took about 2 hours to get everything bolted/drilled/finished. (Even put some Cable stays inside like on the Caribou's !)
Racks $214.00 (California Motorsports - Via Amotostuff I think)
Pelicans $182.00 ($91.00 each online - Boss Safety : http://www.boss-safety.com/shop/peli...am-p-1667.html)
Hardware $15.00 (bolts and washers and nuts)
Shipping costs ~ $55.00
Total of $466.00. -------> WAY LESS Expensive than anything else out there.
Just to add locks now and all done.
**I Apologize for the poor picture - forgot my camera and had to take this with my Treo 650 phone.**
