I believe there's a kit out there now to allow easily mounting Pelicans to Givi racks??

I prefer the Givi racks as they hold things much closer into the bike (I've used both the Givi and SWM and prefer the Givi).

My only other concern is that those pelican cases flip open on the inside im not sure if there will be enough clearance for them to open....

If you mount the cases high enough, they'll open just fine. I have the 1430's on SW Motech racks and they fully open.

The Pelicans are bolted to the rack frames that do quick release from the bike. Here's my old post on the "other" forum that has all the details/photos: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...t=Pelican+1430
