Tusk Panniers for 2018 AT and up available now.
As of 08/09/2018 the Tusk pannier rack is now available, the cost is roughly the same 400 and change with large aluminum cases and carrying straps.
Install does not require drilling however disassembly of the grab rails, and removal of tail light is required. Fairly straight forward although instructions included are for the Adventure Sport so diagrams are slightly different than the CRF1000 A/T. The rack fits without any issues and looks good, it also incorporates Tusk's quick release pin system, and it's asymmetrical so if you wanted an even width on both sides you'll have to opt for an alternative case manufacturer.
I opted for the Tusk system not so much to save the 500 + dollars but more to save the frustration of damaging an expensive set of cases due to fall overs etc.
