AltRider Triumph Tiger 800XC Side Stand Foot
Good product but could improve
Altrider products seem to be well thought out but washer added on back bolt seems to be after thought. I would like to see top plate as closed loop. I'm not into hype and its easy for me to pick things apart. That being said it is well made and functional . I would recomend this product.

Good Quality but Poor Execution
Good product for the Tiger 800XC but overpriced and slightly under engineered for what you get. The kit is 3 washers short for adequately spacing the two plates together. I saw this comment from another review and thought, oh well, I'll order anyway, but it really is a shame to be shorted 3 washers for the $ you spend on this kit. As well, the bolts are too long once all is connected; requiring you to grind down for proper installation. I am a product designer myself and know its difficult to launch product but by all means make it work especially when it is so simple as some fine tuning on fit & finish on inexpensive parts. Everyone seems to rah-rah Altrider, but come on...for the $ premium I would have expected perfection.

Alt Rider Side Stand Foot
As all ways Revzilla shipped my order with no issues. The side stand is easy to install and works great on my 2012 Triumph tiger 800 xc. The Tiger is a heavy bike and needs the side stand support on soft ground. This is a good product.

Picked this up before going on a 1500 mile ride to Arkansas to do a lot of off road riding. It cam in very handy in the water logged red clay that the stock foot would have crapped out in (still had to be careful even with the new foot).
Fitting was a bit odd as the pictures in the instructions were not of the product you actually get, but having seen the photos here of the installed foot it's easy enough to figure out. Also didn't realize I would need a special bit for the screws (star screws vs. something else), luckily I happened to have the right size in a random tool kit. I actually did not need to cut down the screws, though I can see why others would. If you deform the foot enough to make the top and bottom plates flatten together you will need to cut some thread off, but I found the plate was plenty tight enough on the foot without having to deform the plate (there is a small air gap between the 2 plates but are not loose in any way)

Excellent design for Tiger 800 with Center Stand
If you have a Triumph Tiger 800 or 800XC with the Triumph Centerstand, and want a side stand foot, this is the "go-to" part. Most other side stand feet (that are centered on the foot) interfere with the centerstand once the side stand is in the "up" position. The quality of materials and fit/finish of this AltRider part is superb. I still eased the edges a bit with my Dremel tool and a sanding disk. It installs easily and is obviously custom designed for the Tiger 800 side stand. It is good looking, functions well, and when retracted, tucks in very tightly to the Triumph centerstand but does not interfere with it. I am very impressed with the Tiger line of products offered by AltRider.

Durable and well made but fit has some issues
This is a well made product that is strong and durable. However, I found that, after I had installed per the instructions, the fasteners projected down through the base of the bottom plate. Someone else's review mentioned that they ground down the screws after installation. I added additional washers in between the top and bottom plate to make up the overage. I had to remove and re-install the foot a few times to get the right fit. Having said all this, I like how it looks and functions quite well, even though the installation had some challenges.

Necessary accessory but poorly finished
Necessary accessory because Tiger 800XC is quite heavy and easily falls on soft ground.
Unfortunately the screws were too long and needed to be cut in order to fit right. This shouldn't happen and for this reason I do not recommend the product.
