Otherwise I have to hope I catch the next order thread on the Uni.

There are FilterSkins for the Aussi-UNI that I use on my 950ADV that look to be the right size to fit the snorkel. I may give that a whirl as a pre-filter wrapped around the snorkel after drilling an array of holes in it.

Also, UNI sells bulk foam, and some universal shaped filters that might be adapted fairly easily.

I was hoping this might have been something like that.

EDIT: Just read the post about that one being the ABS version. That explains it being narrow like the snorkel.

I had considered that, and still may, if the film proves to be an issue.

However, I went with the film because:

1. It's cheap.
2. It's easy to remove.
3. It looks "different."
4. It just might protect the lens from a stone chip.
5. Did I mention it's cheap? Ex-KLR-Owner here.

Happy Trails Nerf Bars vrs SW Motech Crash Bars

I am the proud new owner of a 2013 Tiger XC. I have been lurking for some time and have read the many posts with interest. After looking on line at the various crash bars/engine guards I have boiled it down to the above two. The Happy Trails looks like it might provide more protection, but the Motechs have a more integrated look to them. Has anyone been able to see both of these bars? If so what are your thoughts? As always, your time and responses are appreciated.

I'm going to do what people do on internet forums and totally blow past what you asked and suggest the Holan bars. Take a look, haven't found anything more protective than them for the price.

Holan has closed their doors to the Northern Americas??

Can't anything personally about SW Motech because i do not own a my tiger yet (hopefully in May!!) but i have done a buttload of reading on the farkles to get and as for crashbars, SW Motech has wiped the plate in terms of looks, durability and how well they hold up when the tiger sleeps When i get my tiger, those will definitely be the way i go no doubt!

Try some going through some of these threads as well...

He's a great guy to deal with. Put the order in and he'll let you know what's going on.

Congrats on the bike!

I recently bought the AltRider bars but between the two you listed I much prefer the SW primarly because the HTs just look horrible - purely subjective...

The Holan bars show as being "preorder", not in stock. The site did say that they couldn't guarantee the supply so they dropped Holan. Too bad cause I was gonna go with them. I have decided on the ADVspec bars.

And just so everyone knows, the ADVspec bar will fit with the oem bash plate

Oh awesome! Great to see some companies out there are still keeping a personal level with customer service. Always a plus for me!

Hi guys - thanks for the feedback on customer service at ADV Motorrad...greatly appreciated!

Grover6, I think you might be looking at the prior distributor's site. They had some supply chain issues with Holan in mid-2012 that led to them carrying a different line. We picked them up in October 2012 after the issues were resolved and have had really good luck with availability and delivery. You can see all of our parts for the Tiger 800, including Holan, at the link provided by XCRider803 (here).

The Tiger 800/XC crashbars are something we try to keep in stock stateside, but a rush of orders cleared out our inventory. We have more on the way from Poland that should be arriving in the next 1-2 weeks and will update stock availability on the store when they arrive. We do have the headlight guards and a top case plate for a 29L Medium case in stock currently, with more Tiger parts on the way.

I don't want to take this thread off course, so if you have any other questions, please feel free to PM me or visit the ADV Motorrad thread in the Vendor section.

Thanks again!

Jason

Gee - Those Uni-filters really work. Before: 4,000 mi trip thru Ut, Co, NM, etc about 1000 mi on dirt & had to change filter at about 6K mi. After: another 4K mi trip, (Or, Nv & Ut) about same amount of dirt, (even paved roads were dusty) but Uni installed & paper filter still looks new. Excellent "investment.

Yep! And the pre-filter is much more accessible to clean.
