I'm attracted to that upper guard because i already have the Triumph OEM engine guard. I hope they offer it in black to match the lower OEM engine Guard.

Touratech Canada charge us a 13% premium over US prices (they call it tax, they must mean Import Duty) I find that kind of high.

Then we get nailed with 13% sales tax in Ontario. I bought their Zega Pro Top case, but by the time i got the bracket, the case, the locks, the shipping, and the taxes layered one upon the other it cost $944. Yes they look and operate great, but boy does it add up!

@Rasthomas is that a coupon code? USA only? got any more

@Xcountry-Rider I'm not social. but got a link? I'd lurk.

It was a $50 coupon for joining the Riff Raff - supporting Jonah Street in the Dakar Race. My second year.

Have Y'all seen this?

looks like some engine guards can cause more issues in certain situations that they help. Personally, I plan to be very careful about what I bolt onto my bike when It's time to get an engine guard. If that perfect rock 'has my name on it' well, so be it.

That's why we are buying that guard.

Recall Center Stand Springs.

I stopped by the dealer and picked up my recall springs. I installed the center stand myself so I just swapped springs myself. I highly recommend a spring install tool (I got mine with a Yoshimura pipe for the DRZ400).

The old set of springs were both the same gauge. With the new set the inner spring was the same gauge as the old but the outer spring was beefier.

Reference center stand bump stop, with mine the nipple was about the same size at the mounting hole so about the only thing holding it in there was the center stand (in the up position). I just glued it in place with some black silicone adhesive.

Roll cage for the Tiger.

I was over at another Tiger forum and saw this set up.

I assume it is a Euro design. The link didn't work for me.

These are made about 60 miles from my house. They are the best looking crash bars yet, I think. Going to call them and see about riding over there and fitting a set.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, I guess. They look awful to me. The tubing used looks rather small as well though without an up-close view, I can't say for sure. I like my Motechs. They follow the lines of the bike and look like they belong there. Bolted them on as soon as the bike was in the garage. They have been drop checked as well. Scratch on the handguard, crash bar and some dirt on the passenger peg.

You are right about beauty being in the eye of the beer holder!

I like the fact that these bars seem to cover many critical points, are close and parallel to the engine and are somewhat locally made. That accounts for convenience for me. When I had my Wee Strom I chose the Pat Walsh Design System, which very few others seemed to have used, but it is well thought out and saved my plastic in a lay down. When I bought the Triumph I contacted PWD but they weren't making anything for it.

I like my (German-made) SW Motech bars and like you....they've been fully tested

After looking through the website, isn't this the same manufacturer of the Giant Loop knock-offs?

Those Holans look to be the most comprehensive set made in terms of coverage. However, I'm not sure about ordering from a vendor with a spotty delivery history.

Hopefully, they can get their ducks in a row now that they are under new ownership.
Here's the Holan USA page with pics.
