Looks similar to my EP guard.

Is that a Hidenau K60?

Check the rotation marks. I think it might be correctly installed. Looks weird, but I think mine is similar.

It LOOKS backward, but when you think about it, when does the tire need maximum traction and water shedding ability? Under braking! That's why so many front tires have "backward looking" tread.

The shop actually did put my K60 front on backwards. I noticed it a couple days later and they had to swap it. It does LOOK backwards!

But is correct as you can just see on my bike far left.

Uhhhh, Black Tiger, just because you ride on the wrong side of the road, I think you may have mixed up your left from your RIGHT?!

I agreed it did look backwards once you mentioned it. I'm glad it wasn't saved me a trip to the dealer :)

Yes it kind of does with the honey comb pattern but the Triumph guard is 20 bucks cheaper and i think it better visually "matches" the style of the other Triumph accessories. I got mine from Pro Italia here in California. I was thinking that i would get it quick turns out they needed to get it from Triumph so that added a week. Pure Triumph also carries it.

Picked up my 2013 800XC yesterday (flat khaki green), made it 11 miles before I picked up a nail in the rear tire
Dealer picked me up for free and had the service department stay open late to fix it for me. Thanks to Florida Sports Cycle and ATV for the great customer service, as usual. Loving the bike so far...

Thanks. It fits me better than my GS or X-Challenge and is much better on the road than the other large bore dual sports I've owned. Did a 60 mile loop in some sugar sand today and drove away impressed with it.
