AltRider crash bars are made in the USA from one inch stainless steel, and utilize the strongest mounting points the bike has to offer. Like all AltRider engineered crash bars, the crash bars for the Triumph Tiger 800 XC will fit perfectly without any grinding or bending on your part. AltRider hand TIG welds all parts and cuts them on a 5 axis laser for strength and perfect fit.
The crash bars include all the necessary hardware, and provide you with clear printed instructions in the package.
The crash bar is very nice. fit and finish is superb! 5 star. The item is a little pricey, but there is quite a bit of material - and the bending (done on a cnc mandril bender - i am guessing) the cost of the stainless steel, hydro jetting, powder coating and welding all add to the price. The item definitely looks like it will protect the bike on a tip over. haven't tested it yet -knock on wood, but the lower side of the bike along the engine casing might not have enough protection. Was planning on getting the R-G engine case covers but i don't want to spend yet more money.
I bought the SW Motech engine guards and they weigh probably twice as much and are prone to vibration. I sent them back to Twisted Throtttle. These are vibration free and are strong yet will give so it wont wreck yoiur bike and will protect the $800 Radiator. I also had Touratech engine guard and sent those back, nominal protection and doesn't really do much. when the bike tips over the clutch shifter will bend in so it didn't protect that. and on the right side the bends weren't correct so i needed to shim out the Touratech guard with a 1/8" shim to get the correct fit. i had also gotten the Touratech fairing guard and sent that back, just didn't look like it would do sh*& on the triumph. figured they lifted the design from the 1200gs?
overall quite happy. If the 500lb Tiger800XC goes down it might protect my leg from being brocken. I can hoist the front of the bike up using the crash bars and i can grap the crash bars so i can lift up the bike when it tiips over
installation wasn't very easy without the right tools, i basically squeexed my hands into the frame between the radiator and then twisted my wrist backwards, it was easier with a swivel adapter and 12" 3/8" extension. on the right side the engine bolt isn't long enough and you don't get enough thread engagement. Typically 2-3 extra threads past the nut. I went to a local dealer on lincoln blvd. Santa Monica and went through a coffee can to find a used bolt that was a tad longer, don't remember the metric size. Called Altrider and they said that stock size was fine according to the engineer (jeromey?), but i argued that it was an engine bolt so doesn't make sense to take a chance. Also, when you buy from Altrider they throw in locktite to secure the lower stainless bolts that adjoins both sections. It says nothing in the directions. I did it just out of habit, since the torque setting is like 1.5ft/lb.
overall very good product and happy with the purchase. Install was a little cumbersome, but at least the directions weren't in German (touratech take note - i was calling for English translations)
