Wouldn't mind seeing a picture of that frame guard with the whole bike in the picture. It does seem to soften the utilitarian look of the bike.

Seems kinda Harley'esque to me. OK I've bolted on every chrome doodad I can, maybe I can just bolt this block of chrome on top... (no it's not chrome but kinda the same thing)

Sorry but don't see the point. Boot scuffs? It's an Adventure bike! Personally never saw the fascination with trying to keep a bike in showroom condition. My bikes get ridden, they get wear spots on the frame from your boots, the tank gets dull from your knees but at least it looks USED. I'll take a well worn, well maintained bike over a pristine example any day. Sh!t $90 is almost a new front tire, or 4 1/2 tanks of gas, and I'm not a cheap bastard either.

I kinda agree with you. It looks nice!! Not sure that important enough for me though. Theres other things l would like first though. The same site has a nifty oil filter guard for 30 bucks. Now that is useful!! Maybe down the road when i knock off a few more important pieces.

Is that for keeping your oil filter from getting scratched?

I'm not sure, but I don't worry too much about my oil filter staying in pristine condition!

Keeping it from taking a rock on the trail and getting a hole. Some folks have went for the ugly SW Mototech skid plat because it covers the oil filter, This will protect your filter with your OEM skid plate without the ugly.

You can get a triumph one cheaper. Not meant for 800 but works perfectly.

Sent from my Tiger 800

Thanks for that! I'll be doing this mod over the winter if there is snow on the ground.

Tank protection film

Has anyone ordered the Triumph protection film for the 800? If so, do you still have the instructions or printed template? I bought some 3m film and would like to see what shapes Triumph are using for their film kit so I can cheap out and cut mine to fit
