Pelican cases

Does anybody know of a supplier that would have racks to mount Pelican cases on my KLR. Any help would be great.

Give this place a look over:
http://www.tpimotorcycleparts.com/

on the main page, click on KLR650 then when the next page opens scroll down the list on the left to TOURING. There is a set on that page, that look identical to the ones on EBAY.

What pelican cases do you have? I mounted the 1430's on mine.

DXKLR how is it going? I don't have any cases yet. I was thinking about the 1430's. How are they working for you?

I am loving them. They are able to hold everything I had in my trunk, plus extra. They are tough, and have already saved my bike from road rash. My buddy dropped my bike 2weeks ago on a trip where we switched out bikes, and thank goodness the crash bar and the pelican case lifted the bike right up off the ground and not one piece of body plastic or anything else touched or got scratched.
