Sorry, I didn't. A actually didn't even get the box fully made before I realized that it was to big for me.  I guess "to big" is relative, but they would be pretty massive on a CB5X - IMO.

Ok thanks for the feedback and opinion

I contacted them asking about their pannier racks and mounts and fitment on a 2019/2020 CB500X and was told ....

"unfortunately we do not have these items listed for your bike. This means we do not have the specs for your machine on these."

Any recommendations on soft pannier racks that the Pilot bags or Olympus bags would mount to that fits the 2019/2020 ?

Ok thats good I was actually looking at the rally raid rack. Do you have some tusk soft panniers mounted on a rally raid rack at the moment? If so would you mind sharing your setup maybe some pics  :152:

I have taken delivery of the RR side and rear racks and hope to be fitting them this week...but a loose holding against the bike...they look just right, there are quite a few close up pics out there if you search.
As long as there is adjustment with straps that fit across the seat,I dont see a problem at all.
Be aware of the weight limit on the small rear rack...although I think the could be a relatively simple way of increasing that slightly

I dont have the Tusk bags but have a few others such as Kreiga and looking at some Enduristan Blizzards...The Tusk bags dont seem to be sold in the UK and as an individual the cost can be all cost twice with carriage...20% import tax and the carriers charge for handling such charge.
