Have a bad latch in my oem panniers. Tusk boxes are reasonable. But they do not come with racks. I dont do much hard off road. I like the quick on/off, the minimal rack when off and the tight fit of the oem pannier. Any one got a good link? Searching has not produced any good answers.

My 13 has Tusk's but they were on it when I got it so not sure which racks are on it. I can get you some pictures tonight if you want.

Thanks! Is there a "puck" system holding them in? Can you measure those so i can see what size they are? anyone else got different rack? I am looking to keep width same as stock if possible

No puck that I have seen and I actually took one off recently and they are not as bad to remove as I thought initially. 2 bolts and they come off easy. As far as the size they are the large ones. Sorry I never saw the notification of your question.

You can use Moose Expedition racks to fit Tusk Pannier. I had that setup for my 2014 Vstrom, I will do the same setup on my 2018 Tenure I just have to buy Moose Racks for my S10.

So I to desire to mount the tusk panniers to my 2012 S10. I have been asking Rocky MT ATV to produce the racks for the S10 but so far no Bueno. I thought about buying the givi racks and using pucks or something.

The Moose Racks come with all the hardware you need to mount the panniers. Even Comes with a template to for drilling and installing the mounting hardware.
thanks for taking the time to snap those photos. Your option is the best I found out there. Most likely a winner :)

Since the moose Panniers install the same way, its the easiest way to mount Tusk. Had them on my Vtrom 1000 too. Same way.
You can buy the Thumb screws from Moose, but I didn't I just bought them from amazon and bought automotive clips that they screw into.
Makes them easier to faster and to remove.
