I got the Touratech foot pad extender a few weeks ago. Went on easy and is working very well. It does conflict with the center stand, you have to put the side stand down before you can use the center stand but no big deal.
I read somewhere that the Rodie has a different centerstand than the XC so maybe no problem with the XC.

Tampajim, what did you use for highway pegs? If my engine guards ever show up, then I want to do the same thing.

Thumb Baffle Removal

If I ever wanted to put the baffle back in, a stainless steel button head screw could fill the hole that I drilled in the baffle. But even with the baffle out, the exhaust tone is very civil, no reason to put the baffle back in as far as I'm concerned. Ken


Thanks Ducken! I will give that a shot.

Three test rides ... two XC's one T800. One of the smoothest bikes I've ridden. As smooth or smoother than my 1050 ... which is so smooth the BMW guys shit themselves when they ride it.

The only time I felt some vibes was when holding the XC up around 8 to 9000 rpm. But hardly an issue. At cruise speeds, no vibes that I noticed.

I put the Touratech foot on my XC, but it made contact with the center stand so I sent it back. A guy on the Tiger 800 board had the same problem, said all he had to do was grind away 5mm.

Pegs are black Rivco- they are the only ones I found that work because they have a angle adjustment.
The mounting clamps are a problem because the Triumph guard is only 7/8". Rivco makes this size in black but I used this one from Twisted Throttle http://www.twistedthrottle.com/trade/productview/4665
because it allowed me to fabricate 4" extensions from 1.5" bar steel (Home Depot).

I'm not concerned about a side drop as the pegs will fold up behind the engine guards but I probably would be concerned about using those homemade 4" forward extensions if I were a serious off road rider. Then the stock 1.5" Rivco clamps might be the better solution.

3Putt is that a aftermarket centerstand? Mine is a OEM Roadie, is black and doesn't look like that.
I have plenty of clearance but you do have to put the sidestand down first .

That was me. Cut as required, for me about 5mm, off the corner nearest the centre stand. You still have to have the side stand out to use the centre stand, but to me that makes sense anyway.

Yeah - my Touratech "foot" for side stand sticks on centerstand. Will need to do 'hatchet job' on offending foot part. Need bigger footprint here in the soggy NW - so dont want to send back. But...ya'd think Touratech would have gotten this right in first place - I'm sure were not the only ones with "sticky foot".
