AltRider Yamaha Super Tenere XT1200Z Skid Plate 2011-2013
great robust design. Needs modification for the '14 Super Tenere
Tough skid plate design. Easy to install and great finish. I ordered a black one to match with my 2014 Super Tenere ES. I found a bunch of scratches on the bottom of the plate, I wanted to return it but decided not to since its gonna get scratched anyway.
The mounting bolt from the sidestand protrudes and grinds with the skid plate. This causes the sidestand to move slowly becasue of the friction. You have to cut the excess portion of the sidestand bolt to avoid this. Altrider and Revzilla claimed it was fully compatible.

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

It's kind of expensive, but it fits well.
I haven't forced it to do it's job yet, so I can't really talk about it's performance, and durability, but the mounting points, fasteners used, and design bode well.

I'm no mechanic, but had little trouble installing the skid plate.
The instructions were easy to follow and the installation went very smoothly. The only difficulty I had was tightening the front bolt on the kickstand side. It's very difficult getting a wrench on the nut next to the oil filter, but got it done.
The skidplate fit and finish are perfect and it should perform as needed and advertised.

It takes a beating daily!
I use my Tenere as my commuter bike and I get to take 6-8 miles of offroad. It's a lot like your video "the commute" The loose river rock I ride thru really puts the skid plate to the test! Altrider makes a great product!

Great product, free shipping.
I love the Altrider skid plate. It protects the oil filter and other areas of the bike. Plus, Revzilla offers free shipping on this product and with your purchase, you earn Revzilla bucks.

Install was not too bad. Fortunately I had some thread lock at home or I would have been screwed on the install, as I did it late at night and all the stores were closed.
Plate looks good on the ride. I am very satisfied.
