incorrectly fitted? its not a space shuttle. it fell off because it bashed against the center stand over and over again while riding about 4,000 miles of all off-road. i had to tighten it over and over and eventually it fell off. its not durable at all and does NOT fit correctly with a center stand. i suppose if you just ride down the highway all the time it will last 2 years. ill take function over looks any day on a piece like this...

Did you have the stronger centre stand spring installed (SB430)? I installed my foot with locktite. Never loosened and I ride all sorts of roads and tracks. I have found it to be totally durable. Admittedly I had to modify a corner for the centre stand but the foot was available before the centre stand. Alt Rider's 1st edition couldn't even be modified to fit, hence their mark 2 version. And to my mind it's not as secure looking as the touratech.

I was the poster boy for the AltRider mk.I foot; in AltRider's defence, they came through with a mk.II as soon as I reported issues. It may not be perfect but it's pretty durable and as it's working just great, I'll keep using it.

glad yours has worked out. mine sucked. i'm pretty sure touratech knows it sucks too because they gave me a half refund just for telling them my story.

Funny, Opposite experience here, had an alt rider lost it in short order, have had the Touratech foot for what seems like ages and I haven't lost it yet.

Who knows, I may have smashed the Altrider on a rock and lost it that way.

Installed the Hyperpro spring kit on my XC....big improvement over stock...the rear may be little stiff...but for $300 it was hard not to try the Springs...

Triumph Tiger Radiator Guard

I ordered the the Triumph Tiger 800 radiator guard and it came yesterday, It goes for about 80 bucks or so. I wanted to give everyone a heads up that the grill guard pictured on the sales websites are not the actual radiator guard that comes in the mail. Its different and i think it actually looks better.


Picture on web sites


Actual Radiator Guard


Installed on the Bike.









I actually like the one that came better than the one pictured on the Triumph sites. Its cheaper than the Touratech and Altrider guards and i think its looks good on the bike.
