Triumph pannier rails and SW Motech rack
« on: 31 July, 2019, 09:49:16 PM »
Can anyone tell me if you can fit OE Triumph pannier rails (and panniers) with a SW Motech rack on a 1050 (pre Sport). The instructions say you have to have the Triumph grab rail fitted but I thought it might be possible to use the SW rack and grab rails instead.

Simple answer no,
you need the grabrail as the pannier mounts use the grabrail as part of the fixing,
you can get an Sw motech rack specific to the 1050 which fits onto the back of the stock grabrail,
I think this answers your question

I had a feeling that was the answer! So I need either a OE Triumph rack or something like the SW Motech which is compatible.  Ok thanks!

Givi top box.  I already have the other SW Motech rack which fits a treat.  I may see if I can make something myself.

Try not to go with the Triumph rack with a Givi adaptor as the original sits very high before you put anything on it

Managed to find a SW Motech one that fits to the grabrail.  It is coming from Germany though! Still saved over the same thing here in the UK.

Yep: SWM rack, then a Givi mounting plate on top of that, then the Givi case snaps into the mounting plate

It's not inexpensive but it does work well. I can send a photo if needed

Im hoping that my current SWM adapter will fit so I can put it straight on. Cant see why it wouldnt as the shape on both racks looks the same.

Well rails on, SWM rack and adapter on top box on and panniers fit so all good.  I have noticed that the guide on the bottom of the rail that locates the front of the pannier allows a bit of movement.  Should there be something in the recess on the pannier (there is a rubber sleeve on the rail) or is it just something to put up with?
