I don't think he wants to use a top box WITH the OE panniers, his question (as I read it) is his new bike has come with the Givi rack minus the OE grab rails....and now he needs to buy OE rails AND OE panniers....am I right?

Thats right, the bike has a givi rear rack, but no hand or grab rails,

Craig Z. Thank you very much for that link. That man Jonathon who made the vidwo is certainly thorough and clear to understandm I've just spent time watching all his vids. But, the price for the OEM panniers I thought they came ready to put on.

Thanks. I've now got the grabrails and thanks to the link to  J.Long's brilliant vids,I now know what bolts I need to fix the grab rails.
Then when i fit them I'll buy a  new tail/ seat bag , not a large one just enough to carry the essentials, then its save up time to buy the panniers

I know my bike is older as it's the 2011 model but i fitted a givi v47 top box using the 1400FZ arms and the existing original panniers and the original frames.I had to remove the grabrails have to be removed but other than drilling 2 holes in the bracket under the seat and drilling and tapping 2 M6 pins into the 1400FZ rails it fitted fine and is no wider that before.
Not the best photo but you see my point
