Smaller exhaust, smaller pannier rack?
« on: December 30, 2018, 10:28:37 AM »
Hi all,

The new generation Tiger 800's have smaller exhausts. Thus I would think, there are smaller pannier racks....

But I haven't found them yet.
Does anyone know if smaller racks are already available?

Cheers all!

While the 2018 > exhaust is thinner to reduce weight, I believe the Triumph brand pannier racks are the same part# from 2015 >.

At the bike show NEC 2019 tiger 800 the expedition case on the exhaust side was definitely closer they certainly are more even than mine. I also am looking into this,but part numbers seam to be the same. Would like to bring mine in by 50mm ,plenty of space to come in with fuel exhaust fitted may try to cut and alter has any one else done this ?.

Maybe some one with a 2018/19 model could give us a overall measurement with side casses fitted.

The one at exhaust side is closer to the bike and the one at the opposite side is wider so now they are almost simmetrical in how far they stick out.

Re the new gen (2018) Tiger with the smaller exhaust, to the best of my knowledge you can use the original rack AND the original aftermarket Arrow if you want too. If you have a Givi rack, the original rack WILL fit but they now supply a new rack for the 2018 Tiger that is slightly narrower in width on the exhaust side to account for the narrower exhaust. I would assume Triumph supply the same rack under their own name? The whole combination of narrower exhaust and rack (Givi) saves less than 2k in weight (with a new eu arrow fitted) and from memory makes the bike around 2 inches narrower with a rack fitted.

How do i know this? I had a 2015 Tiger with Arrow and Givi rack then changed to 2018 Tiger with New Arrow and New Givi rack. In hindsight I would have been better off keeping the old Arrow and Rack and fitting them on the new bike to save me a few quid as the only gain i can find is a slight saving in weight and width. You live and learn eh!
