    Odd Pannier query.

    Hi all.  I'm new to this forum, and picking my 2015 (new to me) black SE up next Saturday and I cant wait.
    The bike is immaculate with the exception of a large scrape on one of the panniers.
    I wasn't too fussed, as I have all the equipment at home to respray.
    On closer inspection though it became clear these are not the factory fitted pannier skins that come from the factory.  The pannier body that fits to the bike certainly is original, but these skins are different than the rounder more curved and indeed larger skins that are the originals as can be seen on the last photo below (the silver bike).  Looking at the rear of my bike, and the silver bike, the difference can be clearly seen.
    Does anyone recognise the skins?  The more I look at them, the more I dislike them, and cannot fathom how they got on the bike.  They are clearly not as deep as the originals.
    So, in preparation for the bike arriving, I was lucky enough to get 2x old new stock of original Triumph pannier skins complete with fixings, badges and reflectors.
    That should be the end of that, but Im now wondering if the outer box inner (if that makes sense) is in place.  The 'door' inner of the pannier is quite bulky and these look so thin?
    What bike would these be off and what do people think?

    The first pics in black below are of the actual pannier set, the silver bike is another with the genuine pannier skins to compare the difference.

    I see what you mean.  I've never seen those before.  In answer to your question, I don't think you will have the correct outer lids (inner) to which the covers attach either.....you may have a problem getting your new pannier covers to attach.  I am sure many of us will be wondering how you get on with this one...

    They look like custom made covers, there might be some clues if you look closely inside. I wonder if these were prototypes for services vehicles  :084:

    Yes, I suspect you may be right.  Any images Ive seen of the outer lids are quite chunky and wider than the skins on this bike.  Very strange indeed.
    Ah well, if it comes to it, Ill look out for the correct outers that the correct lids attach too.  As I said, Ive bought the brand new skins.  I've seen a left outer on Ebay for reasonable money, so once I can check properly I;; hopefully secure that, and then wait 'til I can get the right outer.  In the meantime, if anyone has a set of pannier outer doors that the skins connect to, maybe you could get in touch?  Many thanks

    Guys, could I pick your brains?

    Is the Triumph Sprint GT1050 panniers the same as the Trophy 2015's?

    Ive read that the 1st gen panniers aren't, but the 2nd gen panniers are?

    If so it gives me a few more options.  I can get this one (LH) if some of you kind people could advise if this looks like the trophy pannier?

    Anyone?  Just looking advice if the Sprint 1050 panniers are the same as the 2015 Trophy.  They certainly seen to be but just looking confirmation.

    I can't say for definite but I believe they are the same.  It MAY be that one of the panniers has a recess for the higher exhaust.  I'm not sure.  Your best bet is find someone who has those panniers (a local Triumph group) and ask to try them on your bike. You can also compare part numbers... they will be found on the World of Triumph website.
