Which Pelican cases work the best on the V?..which racks are used and do the pelican cases require drilling or any modification to use as m/c side cases?

I used Givi PL528 and bolted a pair of 1550s right to them. Total cost came to about $500 (racks and cases), plus some hardware.



The Givi PLX528 are different, don't order them if you want to use the Pelicans.

I didn't drill through my Givis, but instead used U-bolts to mount the cases to the steel tubes. This creates a much stronger mount.

There is also a puck mount system you could use if you want something that is more easily removable.

Some of us have also gone the top loader route.
Search for posts by henerythe8th or stevet in the luggage thread.

Do you know if that rack can be bought without the cases? I'd prefer top loading cases, even though they're smaller.
i believe Tom'll quote you a price without cases. give him a call. you do nee to make sure that whatever cases you use are large enought for the mounting hoop which are about 9 3/4" square.

Hmmm..Pelican might not be "the" answer...but the price is right ( I can buy at dealer cost)
Thanks for all the feedback!
