It's fairly well known.
Do a search on here, it's a 5 minute job to drill some new holes to adjust the plate catch to fit.
I've got a Givi box on a Triumph baseplate.

Same thing with panniers. There are small differences that require some modification to make Givi products work with Triumph branded Givi products.

Does anyone know if there are any differences between the 800 and 1200 Expedition top boxes and mounting plates?

Not sure, but when I took my Givi plate off a 1200 I had to re-drill it to fit my XCa. So Givi's centres are different on both bikes so I suspect Triumph's will be too. Experts will be along soon!

There are always little things that screw us up. I've just got the givi monokey plate for their topbox and the kit comes with M8 bolts that are too short to mount it to the bike if you have triumph pannier rails fitted.
No big issue but a pain in the ass when you find out half way through fitting it .

But are the mounting centres different on the rear racks? My 1200 plate was not a straight fit to the 800. I had to drill new holes and shim the plate up so it misses the pillion grab handles.
