Question Tiger Sport Givi Panniers and Triumph Top Box has anybody managed this combination?

Hi All,

I've got a 2016 Tiger Sport which came with the Triumph sliding carriage and electrical wiring already fitted, I looked into getting the matching panniers and large (Trophy) top box and picked up a top box for a good price. Having taken a trip to the dealers to look at the panniers they don't look very usable (think two up riding with the missus).

So I did a little trawling around and found a Givi rack for monokey boxes that someone had fitted to their Tiger Sport along with Triumph sliding carriage. I have some good size Givi monokey boxes from a previous bike so I went ahead and ordered the Givi rack. Unfortunately it doesn't appear to be a straight forward fit with the sliding carriage. I've tried to contact the guy who had this combination fitted but he doesn't appear to be reading his forum posts http://www.tiger1050.com/index.php/t...html#msg398266.



Has anybody here tried this combination? GIVI PLR6404+PLR6404KIT http://www.motorcycleplanet.co.uk/pr...rt-1050-13-16/ with Triumph Sliding carriage top box.

Any pointers to the best fettling solution would be much appreciated.

If its owt like the SW Motech kit, the brackets at the top rear use same holes as the rear rack assy (see part 2 in link), the brackets are 5mm thick, I made some 5mm alloy washer type spacers for the front of that rear rack assy to level it out. I had no probs with the seat fit.

Hi Paul,

Thanks for the reply, it sounds like a similar arrangement, my brackets may be fractionally thicker which may have caused the issue. I'll give it another go this weekend though as it may have been something else fouling the seat.

I'm about to go down the same path.
Have a new Tiger Sport on order with a Triumph top box and rack and have ordered the GIVI gear.
Anything I should know ?

I haven't had chance to try it out panniers yet, my brother-in-law is a blacksmith by trade so he has offered to re-fabricate the brackets should they need modifying.

I spent a bunch of time putting the bike back together after fitting the scottoiler and now have a MIL warning light showing so need to read the fault codes and probably just reset them.

It's a tiger not a horse, it doesn't need shoeing.

I'm still interested in your mods to get them to fit. Good luck.

Thumbs up

Success! MIL codes cleared using Bluetooth OBD from Lonelec and TuneECU Lite Android App.

Givi pannier rack also fitted, a little fettling required to the bracket on the exhaust side due the Arrow can bracket being larger than the standard can. Took the sliding carriage and adapter plate off totally (discovered Triumph dealer hadn't connected the wiring for the charger). Refitted the adapter plate on top of the Givi rear bracket (see photos), torqued down the front bolts on the adapter first then the rear bolts that go through both adapter and Givi bracket, put the plate on a bit of angle, but can now fit the seat correctly. I may do a little light fettling on the adapter plate so that it has a flat contact surface.

Thanks to Paul49 for making me think about trying to fit it again.

Ok, thanks for the pictures.
Now all I have to do is wait for the bike to turn up.

Cheers
