Cool stuff. I checked out their prices and went wow!

Then I checked the Dollar to Rand exchange rate (1:10) and it's not such a bad deal now.

I bought a couple items from them:

30mm Risers


Side Stand Foot


The prices are not bad at all for the quality, but the shipping is not super cheap. I plan on getting the adjustable shifter from them next to accommodate my big feet. I keep shifting up accidentally when I'm standing up off road...

Does that foot work with a center stand? I bought one from Touratech that doesn't.

Yep, works perfect. It also has a big contact area which helps spread the weight of the Tiger on loose stuff...

Thanks. I've been tired of finding a piece of bark to spread out the weight of my side stand.

12,000 mile air filter change

Here is a reminder that a UNI prefilter is not a bad idea. I would guess that at least 6'000 miles were dirt/gravel roads.

Does the AltRider foot work on the 2013 Tiger? I heard someone saying they were having trouble making it work, thinking Triumph may have changed the sidestand design this year.

I've yet to purchase one, and have been using a flattened soda can when parking on soft/loose surfaces.

I've no idea, mine is 2011 and no fitment problems at all.

Photo? I'll compare to my 2013 and see if there's a difference.

Thanks.

What center stand have you got? The manufacturer states "not compatible with Hepco Becker".

I can confirm the AltRider foot works perfectly fine on a 2013 Tiger 800 (road version). No interference issues at all.

Just had my 6000 mile service done and asked about the condition of the air filter. I have been on some dusty roads, but I'm often leading the ride or sweeping, in which case I stay far enough back not to be in dust too bad...

Ends up they never looked at filter at 6000 mile service. So he said if I was worried, he'd check on it for me when they get my new turn signals in for the recall...

Just so you know...It's labor intensive.

I found a really good youtube video showing how to remove the plastics, tank and filter.
