Hi,

Please can someone tell me which are the correct Givi PL side rails for a 1992 Transalp 600?  Should I order PL131?

Thanks,
Robert

Hey, 3 years later but I was wondering if you had any luck with your search for a pannier rack for your 600?
I have found a place in Germany that do one but it says 93-03 xl 600v.
Surely it would have to fit a 92?

This is bizarre as I just ordered the PL131 last night on line then realised it isn't listed for my '91 :bash:
gonna be on the phone to them tomorrow morning

Hey, did you have any luck yet ?
Im also looking for side panniers for my 1992 TA, so far nothing from Givi but found these :http://www.batangacase.com/?l=en&s=shop&c=5

For 90 euro they seem reasonable but wont take Givi. Ive searched high and low and cant find any givi racks for pre 94 models but to be honest I dont see why a rack for a 94 wouldnt fit, I dont think the attachment points are in a different place.
If anyone could shed some light on this?

Received them this evening, I went out just to take a look at the fixings as it was dark and I have no power to the garage ended up fixing them on & yep the PL131 (which says its for '94-99) fits my '91 Transalp, you just have to use one of the spacer bars in order for the mounting bar to clear the side panel & attach to the right footpeg hanger (don't need it on the other side)

The very next day I went over Salisbury plain with a mate, not sure what boxes I'm going for. My sensible side prevents me from paying silly money for metal boxes

Nice one , thaks for that. I wonder why they dont say that they fit pre 94 ? Strange.
I hear that green laning in the UK is great, much more publib right of ways than over here. Salisbury plains is supposed to be a great blast, your lucky its close by

Sometimes its better to pay for the quality though. I like the metal casing on the case because of durability. You can go with plastic alternatives though... check out www.advrider.com www.revzilla.com http://www.vikingbags.com/motorcycle-saddlebags.htm and see if they have anything you like.

Hey man, sorry for late reply!

I got myself a pair of these pannier racks and they are great, with one slight problem.
The one on the right fits well. With the pannier, the pannier sits a hairs breadth away from the indicator.
The one on the left though is just under an inch further forward. Bit of a gap between the pannier and the indicator.
Result is her left leg is a bit cramped. Did you notice this/how did you resolve it if so?

Cheers, I'll try and get a photo up in a few days
