I'm about to buy panniers for my 800XC -12 and I'm wondering what kind of setup you all using?
Do you have a smaller one on the exhaust side or not?
How about the weight distribution if one side is smaller then the other or the other way around.

Going for a 4400km trip next year (if we are allowed to travel) don't what the bike to be unbalanced.

The panniers on my 955 and Explorer both had cutouts on the exhaust side, which made it smaller. As to weight distribution, I just put in it whatever fitted, and never noticed any effect whatsoever

On my 800 xrt 2016 sometimes I have just 1 side box attached and I've never had an issue. People would ask me how I rode like that because visually it looks wrong. Of course I'm not running a race track....either way I don't think you will notice an imbalance.

I recently installed a pair Givi Trekker Outback 37L and I'm happy with it. It is asymmetrical so maybe a 48L on the left side might be another option.

I have the Mosko Moto soft panniers and a standard Triumph top box (GIVI made). Better for off-road mishaps...

Wouldn’t worry about the weight distribution, the Tiger is already off set with the exhaust on one side, I have a givi top box for security and everyday use , I only go away for a couple of days at a time so supplement with the SW Motech Dakar softbags that I picked up cheap 2nd hand , the frames are quite neat as the seat is designed to take the weight of the bags.

“the seat is designed to take the weight of the bags”
That should read the bags are designed to use the seat as a load bearing base
