Givi PL6401CAM Side Case Racks Triumph Tiger 800 2011-2015
Got these for my 2015 Tiger XCx. While I'm not ready to pull the trigger on the Givi Outback Trekkers just yet, I needed pannier racks for my Wolfman Luggage Expedition Saddles bags.
These work great. Easy to install, sturdy, and works well with the Wolfman Expedition Saddlebags.
BTW, Wolfman says if you use the GIVI racks you need to remove some tabs. Thats not clear or defined anywhere on their site. I called and they told me, tab removal is not necessary. Well the tabs they speak of are two bolt-type units that the cases sit on at the bottom of each rack.
You don't need to remove them as I tested it out. BUT If you do off-road and are bouncing around a lot, I can see the potential for them wearing a hole in the bags eventually. They are bolted on and easily removed, which I suggest...

works with OEM Expedition panniers
I ordered the PL6401CAM racks to mount a set of Expedition panniers from Triumph as the OEM side cases appeared to be givi outbacks with a Triumph logo. I would have ordered the givi cases from revzilla, but I had vouchers from Triumph that were going to expire. The fit is perfect and install is pretty simple. My only minor complaint is that the rack attachment to the passenger footpegs could have been better engineered. The bolt that replaces the original footpeg pin binds enough that one of the footpegs does not fully lower. I have only had the cases mounted for a few days so I can't rate durability, but they appear to be well made and have a nice powdercoat finish.

Great Side Case Rack
I believe this is the only rack that works with the outback series, but I could be wrong. The install was really easy and it feels very sturdy. I have used it to lift the bike up on the center stand. Cases go on and off super easy. The rack has red/green indicators to show you if the case is attached correctly. Highly recommend.

Works on the 2015 Tiger XC
Don't worry about Revzilla saying it works only through 2014. First up well on my 2015. That rubber stopper against the black exhaust is the only thing that is flexing any and it is rubber & replaceable. Fat tubes are nice for protection, silver Givi thing comes off and so do those black nubs on the bottom. Not a quick on/off but you don't have to pay for extra keys/locks either. Not symmetrical but I like that it is closer on the port side...good for a slightly bigger bag on the left or for more lean clearance on a big box.

Like another reviewer, I'll use these with Wolfman soft bags until I can get my hands on the Givi hard cases.
Super-easy to install, even for a mechanically inept person like me. I read the other reviewer's comment about the plastic plugs on the non-exhaust side of the bike; my solution was to use a small pair of scissors with sharp tips. I opened them slightly and gently tapped the points into the surface of the plastic with a rubber mallet. Then it was a simple case of using the scissors to unscrew the plastic pieces out of the bike frame.
I've given almost everything a perfect score based on the installation and physical qualities of the rack; so far, everything looks and feels great, and I can't see why they won't do what they're supposed to. If anything changes, I'll update my review.

Solid rack - seems very beefy and able to handle a tip over. Also one of the cheapest I've found. I bought them because at some point I'll probably get the Trekker Outbacks, but for now I'm just using them with my Wolfman Expedition soft bags.
Install is very easy. Hardest part for Tiger owners is this: on the left side, the bracket bolts to the bottom of the frame tube with 2 bolts. Those two bolt holes have plastic plugs in them - be careful taking these out. I tried prying them out with a knife and ended up cutting the top off them, and they are really difficult get out after that. I had to use a drill even though the plugs are just plastic. Be careful with this.
There's less offset in the left rack due to no exhaust on that side, but I think it looks fine. See the attached pics. I plan on getting 37L cases for both sides eventually.
