    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...

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.
