AltRider Yamaha Super Tenere XT1200Z Universal Joint Guard
Dangers exist on and off road for your universal joint, so protect it with the AltRider Universal Joint Guard for the Yamaha Super Tenere XT1200Z.
The AltRider part is larger than OEM, and features an enclosed top that attaches to the nut on the inside of the subframe mount. This is important, because the OEM can easily slip inside or snag riding gear, tripping you up when you attempt to move your foot – our enclosed top prevents that from occurring.
Additionally, the OEM rubber boot that covers the universal joint is attached only by friction, and could become dislodged by foreign objects. Our universal joint guard offers coverage to the boot, protecting it from debris that could move it.
This piece is made in America from 1/8 inch anodized aluminum, and mounts using OEM hardware. It comes in black and silver finishes to complement your bike’s color scheme.
Keeps your pant from getting caught
Nice item from AltRider - stock piece works but this one will keep you from getting your pants caught b/c the pant leg can't slip over this one. Nicely thought out upgrade.

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

This is titled an "Initial Review" because the manufacturer stated that they're addressing a finishing problem with this product.
No problem with Revzilla on this (there never is) as they're stock and shipping were excellent as usual.
The guard I received appeared to be well made and had several laser cutouts. It installed quickly and fit nearly perfect. The problem arose after my first ride with the guard installed while wearing some new boots and pants. I was removing my boots and pants when I noticed they were damaged. Both my left boot (Sidi Canyon) and my pants (Klim Badlands) were damaged by the sharp, unfinished laser-cut edges of the guard.
I immediately contacted AltRider via email which they promptly and courteously responded to, stating their acknowledgement of a manufacturing problem in that some of these guards had mistakenly been shipped prior to having gone through a deburring/finishing process.
A bit late for my brand new, expensive Goretex boots and pants I'm afraid, but things happen.
I'm awaiting their reply as to whether they'll cross ship a replacement guard prior to my returning their defective one as I'm leaving for a trip soon and need to get this resolved quickly. They hadn't made any mention of what they may or may not do about the damages their product caused to my gear.
I'll follow up when things are corrected.

Super heavy duty.
Great addition to my Super Tenere, well worth the price. Fits like a Yamaha accessory and will offer more protection to the u-joint than the stock unit. Adventure On!

Nicely made but instruction were wrong
The guard was cut out real nice and bent to fit perfectly. The only problem I had with it they wanted you to take a nut off that had a Torx bolt. The nut would not come off so I just placed on the stud. It looks like there was still enough room between the guard and joint boot. Also they said to use a 15mm wrench when it was a 14mm. If they took the dirt off the bike before mounting in the pictures they might have caught that.
