So I got a pair of Givi E21 panniers and frames surplus to requirements.
So thought I'd see how they would fit to the Grom.
This is what I came up with,
I'm quite pleased with how they turned out
No wider than the handlebars, so ok for lane splitting.
Ok they're a bit heavier but the added security of locking boxes got to be worth the extra weight.
The worse part of the job was modding my exhaust system.
Because the boxes are deeper than my throw overs,
I had to lower the silencer a bit.
Always a pain modding something that's already modded to fit something else...
Still, I'm reasonably happy with it, I'll wait till I've ridden it with weight in them before final judgement....hmmm
If you are talking about the Givi rails,
then i used an old set of rails form a Honda Transalp
Not that it matters which ones I used, because I cut off all the original brackets
So all I was left with was the loop which fits to the givi panniers.
I then fabricated all new brackets to suit the Grom
(If i remember correctly i used 16mm x 1.5mm M/S tube + 25mm x 2mm flat bar)
So apart from the Givi part, there is no special parts needed,
just a fair bit of design and fabricating to make it work.
I am looking for another cheap set of givi rails.
I want to see if I can make a set up to fit the Grom with a high exhaust.
(Watch this space )
If you are talking about the soft pannier rails then I think it was similer size tubing
i bought it from my local hardware store, so nothing special.
There is not a lot of weight on the soft pannier ones, it just needs to stop the panniers from falling inwards.
The Givi ones need a little more support, because it needs to hold the full weight of the pannier and it's contents.
it also needs a little more cross support as it would have more tendency to bend inwards.
Notice in the pic the cross support going to the rear part of the fender.
hi, yea nothing special about it.
I just used some strong plastic conduite type clips I found at my local hardware store.
Bolted through with some 6mm stainless bolts
Hopefully you can see them in this pic
