When I installed the Pelican to my side racks on my KLR, I also just drilled them. I used 1/4'' bolts with rubber washers on the inside and outside to prevent water leaks, inserted the bolt from the outside of the case and put a screw on handles (or you could use a wing nut) on the inside for easy removal. I have put some caulking between the bolt and rack to hold the bolt in place when to case is removed.
To remove, just unscrew the handle, lift and it's done. Since the handle is on the inside, no chance of stealing.
