AltRider Side Stand Foot Yamaha Super Tenere XT1200Z 2010-2013
big girl needs a big shoe
Finally I can throw the old piece of road plywood in the burn barrell! I think my s-10 with full jesse luggage and someother doo dads is pushing 650+ lbs all that on 4 cubic inch surface is a recipe for holes in the asphalt. With the altrider foot I'm at least doubling down on my contact area of my sidestand and that's all I need to stop worrying about coming out to my big girl taking a nap on her side because she's to tired (get it?). All this plus a cool boot catch to make sure you can feel the foot through a boot to make sure your kick stand is on its way south when you want it to (north in australia and the southern hemisphere).

Side Stand made Better
Seems many side stand pads are too, too small. Don't understand manufacturers sending out products with inferior pads, but it happens. Heavy adventure bikes need the support when parked on soft surfaces. The AlrRider add-on is easy to install and seems well made. It should stand (no pun intended) the test of time. A bit pricey, but hopefully will keep the bike from falling over and sustaining much more pricey damage.

Hits on dirt roads
This footprint is nice, but on dirt roads it tends to hit and scrap. I have ripped out two screws since installing it. It is still on, surprisingly. I do like the size of the footprint and has helped hold the big Tenere up on softer ground. However, the shape needs to be modified to prevent it from tearing off. I do have my preload adjusted all the way up and it hits prior to the rear shock bottoming out. I do recommend it, as there are worse choices out there. Just expect to hear the grinding if you are cruising on a dirt road.

Works great for soft ground
This side foot stand expansion was very easy to install and works great in soft sand. Seems a bit pricey for what it really is.

Product does what it says
Altrider products fit and finish are second to none.

this side stand foot is very heavy duty and strong. this is heavy so if you're a worried about weight this isn't for you. install was very simple. you will need torx sockets.

Nice Product, Poor Fit
I had the same problem with fit but didn't want to modify it if not necessary. I contacted AltRider and they know that this item does not fit all stock Tenere kickstands. They said they are probably going to redesign it in a few months so that it fits without needing to modify it. So I'm returning it to wait out a corrected version.

Fit great, after modification.
Great product but didn't fit right away. Called AltRider and was told there shouldn't be a issue. Well there was NO WAY all 4 screws were going on. I posted on the Super Tenere message boards, and low and behold... I wasn't the only one. Seems the rib/brace on the kickstand isn't "perfect" on the Teneres. Drilled a tiny hole, made a notch and BOOM, fit like a glove.
