Hi AGiN,

These racks will work with Pelicans, and the 2 point attachment is very reliable. I have sold many to the KLR crowd and never had a single complaint. Many of those guys use the Pelican 1550 cases and some have crashed their bikes with no ill effects to the racks.

I recommend soft saddlebags for use on the DRZ, or if you must go with a lockable hard case the Givi E21's. They are well rounded, very light weight and they also have some flex to them. Your leg is less likely to get broken if it gets caught under one. I offer options on my website to add Givi cases to my racks.

In my opinion, Pelicans on a DRZ is just not a good idea. I now carry (and use myself) the Nelson-Rigg Adventure Dry Saddlebags that work perfectly with our side racks on the DRZ. The bags are $114.00 (pair) if shipped with the racks.
