I have the Standard panniers but hardly ever use them, cant fit a helmet in those.
I use the Givi E47 everyday, can fit two helmets in that with a little leftover space but not much.

Do the V35s actually fit?   I thought they used a different mount which wasnt available for the Tiger.   Happy to be proven wrong on that though as they are nice looking units and of a sensible size.

Does anyone have the Givi  V35 or E41 on their Tiger? Can a helmet fit in them? How do you like them?

I have the Givi E41's and small E37 top box, (don't like carrying too much weight that high and far back). Using the SW Motech pannier/top box brackets, the pannier rails have quick release fasteners and leave only a couple of mounting tabs when not being used. I was using the OEM hardbags and tailpack when touring solo but needed some more space when my wife started touring with me. The OEM set up looks much nicer than the Givi but was a struggle to pack, especially the smaller exhaust side bag. One downside with the E41's, it makes the Tiger's butt as wide as a city bus! Easy to scuff up if your not paying attention. :164:
Larger than life and twice as ugly!

The assumption I was working under is that anything monokey would fit on those mounts. Could be wrong but it seems like I saw pics of them mounted on a Tiger 1050. Although I guess it could have been a newer sport. Not sure of much of anything which is why I posted. ;-)

I've got the Triumph panniers and top box set (came with the bike - TS '14) and they hold enough for two of us for a week of B&B/hotel. In fact we didn't use all we took. It's all in how you pack as much as what you pack, and it's a standing joke in our family how much SWMBO has to take with her just for a trip to the shops!!

I got Trax with SW MOTECH mounts. Theyre practical, if that means Im an Adventure Poser so be it.

Ditto on the aftermarket shock. The stocker is pretty poor. I got a three way Penske but thats overkill unless you are riding hard, like track days.

Do what I did, get yer missus her own bike. then she has to carry her own gear, she'll soon work out what NOT to pack..  :008:
Theres something to be said for that in that if your kids are young, as two-up one SMIDSY can take out two parents. Just got my wife a Honda CB500F ABS.

I'm pretty sure the V35's don't fit a tiger,
I seem to remember someone on here modding the frames to make them fit but with a low can, it may be what you have seen

Even my local Triumph dealer quoted me the v35 cases with the PL727 rack.

I just found this showing that you are right:

Please Note: The Givi PL727 pannier holder is designed to fit MONOKEY pannier cases (it cannot fit Givi V35 or V35 Tech panniers which use a different fitting system, MONOKEY SIDE). Thanks!

Hi Garandman, Didnt want to tart a new thread re panniers- I am just about to pull the E Bay Trigger on a pair of Givi- Outback Trekker 48 litre panniers for my old 1050 and the PL727 set of brackets. I have however a low slung exhaust so want these big babies as close to the rear sub frame as poss. Do you know if there is a Givi or aftermarket bracket that mirrors the left side ( close to frame bracket) that i can buy? or is it as i presume that i will have to doctor the right side so the bracket will mirror the left side and not stick out like a deformed ear....?
Thanks in advance
G

Note that the Givi clamshell-style universal bags are a pain in the ass to pack and use unless you remove them from the bike every time you want to add/remove anything.  The top loading bags are the way to go.  As most of these are squarer and therefore "adventure styled", choosing these is not adventure-poseur but a practical choice.  You might also consider that the very square-edged bags are more likely to cause injury in a crash and noticeably less aerodynamic.
