AltRider Triumph Tiger 800XC Skid Plate Where you see riding and adventure, your engine sees rocks, ruts, and danger.

Skid plate needs to be removed to change the oil filter Specifications Made of 1/8 inch (3.175 mm) thick anodized aluminum Height 21 inches Width 14 inches Depth 8 inches Weight 4 lbs

Haven't had this long but have already put it to the test and it does very well. I like the welded construction vs. the rivets of many other plates.
A quick note on install. It is was not super easy but not extremely difficult either. It's made to go on a stock bike so you may need to do a bit more tear down than the instructions say (like I did due to engine bars I had already on plus the fog lights' harness, blech).

Overall I think these gloves work as intended, but I have to say I'm disappointed in one major aspect, quality or thought of stitch/seam placement. I ordered a size 10 as my hand measured 9.5 so the gloves are a bit big, not a major issue. The padding and knuckle protection appear first rate. What is a major issue is the irritation due to an inside seam going right across the back of the first knuckles of your hand. This is horrible as it scrapes the heck out of my hands and leaves them raw after riding all day. I am hoping they break in or my skin rubs down the seam enough to eventually be comfortable, either way, pretty disappointed.

AltRider Triumph Tiger 800XC Side Foot Stand Kicking down your side stand shouldnt make you worry about a falling or sinking bike. The AltRider Side Stand Foot for the Triumph Tiger 800 offers peace of mind by creating a larger footprint to support the weight of your bike on soft ground. Made from hefty 1/8 inch (3.175 mm) thick stainless steel, the bottom plate will not bend, loosen, or begin rattling over time.It features a 3D tread that provides traction for your boots and is the most ergonomic design on the market, allowing easy deployment of the side stand while still on the bike. The AltRider foot attaches using the flanged top plate that holds the curved foot, and Torx fasteners clamp it down for a tight fit. This is the only side stand foot on the market with a top plate that encloses the foot from every angle -- theres no chance of losing this one. Notes Compatible with OEM centerstand Not Compatible with Hepco Becker centerstand Compatible with Tiger XC model

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)

You definitely need this (or something like it) for your heated gear as hooking straight to the battery isn't an option as you will literally burn yourself without the temp control. For what it is it is really overpriced (not revzilla's fault, dictated by manufacturer), seriously it's just some wires, a fuse, and an overly large temp controller. On top of that you only get the connection to hardwire it to the battery which means you have to pay extra for the adapter to just plug into a BMW style port or connect to SAE.

REV'IT! Women's Airwave Pants The perfect match for the Airwave ladies' jacket, these trousers are also great summer over-pants to wear on top of your jeans when commuting. The large air mesh panels allow for maximum cooling, but that's not all they're on and off in seconds, thanks to the long inside zippers. Reflective panels at the lower legs ensure great visibility at all times, and the fit is designed specifically for a woman's body. Even more, the Knox Flexiform CE-approved armor is located in height adjustable pockets, allowing you to position the armor just the way you like it. Available in classic black or daring off white. PROTECTION FEATURES Outer shell polyester 600D, PWRshell 500D stretch, PWRshell mesh , polyester rib Visibility laminated reflection at calf Protection Knox Lite CE protection at knees , prepared for TRYONIC Seesoft CE-level 1 type B hip protector insert - version RV01 ( sold separately ) ERGONOMIC FEATURES Fit tour fit , regular Adjustability adjustment straps at waist, adjustment tab at ankles Ventilation ventilation panels at legs Features easy entrance zipper at calf, adjustable protector pockets, short connection zipper, elastic at waistband Pockets slit pockets

Bought these for my wife who has used them now a few times so we feel like we can actually comment. First off, the sizing chart is way off. My wife's measurements matched a 40 exactly except for 1 place where she was .5" smaller than the chart. The 40 we got were HUGE. She couldn't cinch the waist down anywhere near enough to wear and the waist line was up close to the underside of her chest when she sat down. Revzilla handled the exchange very well and since she dropped to a 38 the fit is much improved.
They provide plenty of room for wearing a pair of shorts or even close fitting jeans underneath. Very easy on and off for when we get to destinations or putting on over boots. Good quality construction looks to last for a while. Great product, once you get the right size.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I bought this and the jacket to be an all around outfit for when I don't want to carry multiple jackets/pants and will ride in a variety of conditions. Like the jacket, I wanted a waterproof product as I'm done with drop ins. Overall the pants did well on a recent trip where it was pretty warm (upper 80's and humid). Only detractor are the vents are not in a great place when sitting, seems they were designed strictly for when you stand up.

Really wanted a waterproof all around jacket as I'm tired of drop in liners that let you pick up 20 lbs. of water before the barrier even gets wet. This jacket was perfect for me as i already have all the base layers I need from skiing so don't see the point in paying for bespoke inserts I don't need. This jacket is rugged and stiff. Overall the comfort is fine, only beef I have is if you open the collar the velcro grabs my helmet liner. I think I'm going to create something to cover that. I've had it on a very warm ride (upper 80's with high humidity) and it did ok as long as I was moving. Would be nice if there was some sort of chest vent, but all in all does fine.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Compared to the other reviews I guess I may be the unlucky one. This product is a huge disappointment. I bought it because I wanted the bluetooth connectivity as I hate dangling wires.
Pros:
- I have a Shoei Qwest and wife has an RF1000, both helmet liners allowed fairly easy hardware installation and the ability to hide the wires.
- Seems to be solid construction of the components, firm connection between the removable module and the helmet bracket.
- Low profile on the helmet with fairly easy to reach volume buttons
Cons:
- Laughable sound quality. I have a set of speakers in my skiing helmet that are the same size and deliver fantastic sound range. The G4 speakers are ridiculously tinny, very low mid range and forget any glimpse of bass
- The reason for the low marks on installation is its not compatible with Windows 7. Home computer is top of the line gaming rig running windows 7 64 bit. Computer won't recognize the G4 and when I called Cardo for help their solution is for me to mail in the modules so they can make my settings adjustment and send it back. Seriously? That means if I ever want to adjust mic sensitivity, turn on or off functions, etc. I have to ship the things to Pennsylvania for them to do it for me. Gee, thanks
If I could I'd just return the things and get my money back, but as they are opened and installed that option is out.
Buyer beware.
No, I do not recommend this product.
