Tiger 800 Pannier Advice
« on: April 27, 2021, 02:39:53 PM »
Hey All,

On my tiger 800 xc (2011), I have these panniers from a Tiger 800 XRT (2017)

I have been told they are to fit Triumph Expedition Panniers. I've also read elsewhere that Givi Monokey panniers may fit with some alteration.

As I can only find the Triumph Expedition panniers for around 500, my question is, can I just get any Givi Monokey panniers or does it have to be some specific ones? I see there are some plastic ones for 250

Also, can anyone tell me what alterations I need to make. I can find some posts about people with Givi racks fitting triumph luggage but not the other way round.

Thanks in advance

The Givi equivalent would be Givi Trekker Outback panniers, but there is a slight difference for obvious reasons .... Triumph want you to buy theirs. Fairly sure the modification needed isn't too drastic and in here somewhere (I'm in the middle of refitting rear wheel so haven't time to look, only came to computer for torque figures).

Thanks man.

Do you know if "monokey" is the fitting type for Givi? So for example, could I get a set of these and make them fit?

These won't fit.  The V35 (or V37) pannier has a slightly different setup that requires a different set of pannier rails (Givi part numbers compatible with the V35/V37 start with PLX).

They are Monokey panniers, but they are not like the rest of the Monokey range.

This may not make much sense, but it's not easy to explain

To me, the description 'Monokey' as a range only implies that you can have the panniers and topbox all operating from 1 key with a set of identical locks available. :027:

I bought a fitting kit from eBay to fit my old monokey panniers,

Unbolt the silver frame but take care not to lose the springs! then line up the pannier and clip and mark where to drill the holes'

Drill the holes and bolt the clip in place, not hard a hard job.

When you have something described as a "Monokey topbox mounting plate" or "Monokey pannier rail" then the implication is that any topbox/pannier described as Monokey will fit it. Which was a perfectly valid inference until these new-fangled V35s came along.
