Just picked up a used one...

Went with the Pelican 1400 b/c it was closest to what I figure was the ideal size.
Ext. 13.37" x 11.62" x 6.00"
Int. 11.81" x 8.87" x 5.18" = 542.6

Should fit all my tools, the airman pump and a bottle of whiskey. Comes with the foam insert stuff so I'll make a whiskey comfy-carry compartment.

Had to take a 20 mile drive to buy some 8mm x 65 bolts but I think this will work OK. Pops is happy with it.

Pelican 1520 mounted on Touratech plate...

Ok here are the pics I promised.
I think I said earlier that I had the Pelican 1500, that was NOT correct, it is really the the 1520. It is mounted directly to the top of the Touratech plate with a thin slice of rubber in between to keep things from chaffing. It just clears the top surface of the passenger section of the seat by an inch or so ...

I have small "strap loops" mounted to the top and front sides. I like to do things the hard way, so mounted the strap loops on the curved surfaces of the case, so I could not use regular fender washers to back up the mounting bolts. I had a scrap of hard copper tubing that matched the radius of the inside of the Pelican and quartered the pipe the long way on the band saw and used that to back up the bolts.

To prevent leaks I used those metal washers with the rubber on the bottom (used for metal roofing) under the strap loops.

If I ever get time, I'd like to try to key the case to use the ignition key, in the mean time I have a Seasamee lock that I can open in the dark by "feel".

Finally got around to mounting mine the other day. What I did was actually drill and tap the SW_Moto rear cargo plate. That way the it bolts down from inside the box into the plate and then I put a locknut on the bottom. I figure that is some good security feature.

It will fit my tools and a bottle of whiskey.

For my taste, all of these Peli Cases are too shallow as I'd like to have space to store a crash helmet. So same width, same depth, but taller. I wonder what model Peli Case that would be?

What size Box in on the back ? Is that the pannier frame ordered from caribou cases? Are the side boxes the 35L ?

Safe Riding!!

I would guess the top box to be a Pelican 1520

Touratech rack

Hi,

This peli-thread is very interesting!
I read a lot about bolting the Peli on a TT rack; can anyone confirm it is on this rack: ?

And what's the maximum weight that can be carried on this rack?
Is it strong enough to carry the biggest peli's?

That's the rack I am using with my Pelican 1520, and it is very solid, even when loaded, but then the 1520 is not that big of a case.

Not sure what the upper limit would be ...

The 1520 = 25,6 litres ,not so small.
Just don't understand that the TT rack (and also the special TT pannier rack for topcases) is only allowed to carry 5 kg (11,2lb)???
The case itself weights already 2,95kg (6,5lb).
Or is TT playing it very safe?
