Givi V35 Pannier Width
on: August 16, 2013, 01:23:46 AM
Does anyone know the width of the V35 panniers when fitted to a CT? Or if not, would anyone who has bought the V35's for their CT be kind enough to measure the width of the panniers?

Yes, it has been answered in 2 threads iirc. If memory doesnt err me, it should be 97cm. Givi Trekkers are also 97cm, just fyi.
average on my VFR1200X

97cm? Thank you, that is quite wide, especially for a pannier that is claimed to tuck in closer to the bike.

That's what I thought at first as well. I havent picked my panniers yet (will be Trekkers, next month), but I decided its ok after seeing them on a bike in person.

The originals are the best option for keeping bikes width at minimum, and I guess even those were around 94cm.

Someone correct me if I am mistaken.

I have the V35s and they are as you say approx. 97cm... handguard width is approx. 94cm, and my mirror settings are approx. 99.cm.... so if you work on the theory that if the front of the bike fits through any gap, then so will the panniers  :062: (Bear in mind that you will need to also buy the Quick Release PLXR kit to mount the V35s to the existing fittings on the bike, but these rails and the cases do fit close to the bike and look great on the crosstourer...very well made quality, and total including fittings is around £500.00 which is less than half the cost of Hondas.

Thanks Geoff and Barbancourt. The penalty in additional width between the OEM panniers and the V35's is minimal then. M & P are doing the V35's for £241 at the moment (postage included) and the quick release frames are available for £185 for delivery so a  huge saving on the OEM panniers.
