Questions on Adventure-Spec Bashplate Triumph Tiger 800 and 800XC

  • From Patrick at 13/03/2013 23:41
    • Is the bash guard compatible with the OEM engine protection ("dresser") bars?
    • Yes, the bashplate works with the OEM Triumph crashbars.

      Thanks for the question.

    • Three part question:

      1: Is this compatible with USA bikes with charcoal canisters?
      2: Is this compatible with SW-Motech Crash bars?
      3: Does this require you to remove bash plate for oil changes?

      Thanks
    • Hi,

      1. Good question! I think so as we have certainly had a few go to the USA (and we dont have the charcoal cannisters here). Check out this thread on ADVrider with plenty of images on the parts. Perhaps you could PM the guy to check?
      http://advrider.com/forums/showpost.php?p=20956283&postcount=705

      2. Again. I am not 100% sure, BUT on another thread on the UK Triumph forum a customer notes that there is interference between our BARS and the SW-Motech BASHPLATE, so i think its more than likely the opposite combination will work.
      http://www.tiger800.co.uk/index.php/topic,7718.10.html

      3. The bashplate should be removed for oil changes.

      Sorry to be a little vague with the responses, but these are quite a new product and we dont have access to every bike/accessory combination during development. (PS. our crashbars are awesome!)

    • Hi,

      why is there only 5 mounting point s on your plate, when there are 6 on the triumph one? Thanks.
    • Rob,

      When we manufactured the guard we had a number of design options. One was to use all six mounting points and allow the current design of the sump to dictate the shape of the bashplate. The other option was more complex, but allowed us to make the bashplate the exact profile we wanted (i.e. as small as possible with a forward sloping front plate to deflect impacts for better performance). This did mean losing one of the original mounting points as it would be exactly on the current bashplate fold line, but after maufacturing and testing we were more than happy with the size and strength of the plate (and we do some pretty comprehensive testing!) and much preferred the shorter non-vertical front plate. style

      Hope that helps explain things a bit!

    • Hi,
      how long is the sumpguard? Does it offer any protection for the rear suspension link? Have looked at the Touratech Large guard and it seems it does but yours offers better protection for the oil filter!
    • Dylan,

      Thats an excellent question. Our guard does not protect the rear suspension linkage.

      We have sold thousands of guards for a number of different bike models now including a huge amount for the F800GS. We never cover the rear suspension linkage as we've never experienced (or heard of) a catastrophic bike failure as a result of an impact to that region of the bike (even with some of the crazy riding a lot of our customers choose to do with their bikes!). The Susupension linkage is a big solid piece of cast and machined aluminium.

      Conversely, we look in wonder at the placement of the oil filter on modern adventure style bikes. I know its a great place to keep them cool, but really?!?!?!? Every gravel road you ride up your front wheel will be blasting the area with stones and in the event of any larger impact caused by front wheel slippage (e.g. having to ride over rough rocky areas, logs etc) the main crumple zone IS your oil filter.

      We think about our AS Hard Parts very carefully and use a lot of customer real world riding experience to influence their design . We honestly believe that the bashplate we have made is the best combination of protection weight and performance that money can buy.

    • With the bashplate or skidplate can you install any center stand.
      Thanks
    • The bashplate is designed and tested to work with the Triumph stand. We have not tested the 'plate with all other centre stand models.

      Hope that helps.

    • Hi,

      Is it for XCx 2015- version ?
      Will it be compatible with Adventure-Spec Crashbars Triumph Tiger 800 and 800XC(x) ?

      Thanks !
    • Hi,
      This is fine for the 2015 XCx, and will also be compatible with our Crashbars as well.

      Hope that helps.

    • Will this fit the 2016 Triumph Tiger 800 Xrt with the Triumph engine guard installed?
    • This is compatible with the OEM crashbars. The OEM bashplate will need to be removed of course.

Great look and fit. Have taken a bit of beating and especially the black paint is completely gone where the front wheel kicks up dirt etc. a bit disappointing. Otherwise satisfied and have definitely saved the underside of the engine a few times.

Probably the best aftermarket skid plate out there Review by Blue Hawaii
Probably the best aftermarket skid plate out there" by , written on 5 February 2016
Purchased for a 2012 Triumph Tiger 800XC. I like that the product is well made, light weight and protects the oil filter area better than the stock skid plate. However, my bike is a California emissions model with a charcoal vapor recovery canister on the left side which has to be removed before this plate will mount up. There isn't any documentation of this in the package on how to perform this, so I had to spend quite some time researching this on the internet. Some sites said to dig as deep as removing the gas tank to get to the throttle bodies and remove the vapor recovery system from there down, while others said to just remove the charcoal canister and plug the suction line with a bolt and zip tie, which is what I did, once I figured out which line was which.

The OEM skid plate has 6 bolts holding it on whereas this one only uses 5. Not sure why they decided to omit the 6th bolt.

Because of the lack of documentation, the fact that I had to remove a stock part from the bike and that the 6th bolt isn't used, I knocked off a full star for that.

Overall, this is a much better option for the Tiger over the factory skid plate and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this to anyone looking to upgrade and protect their investment. The shipping to the states from the UK was reasonable, and I had it at my door in less than a week.

Best Bashplate Review by Matty
Best Bashplate" by , written on 2 April 2015
I looked at every bashplate known to man for my Tiger 800 XC and ordered this one because it looks the beefiest and it's the best looking. Love the tab that protects the oil filter.

Super easy to install. I did have to remove the charcoal canister on my US spec Tiger, but that took 5 minutes. Don't forget to plug the vacuum line when you remove it. Really like the way this looks and protects.

Very good product just a small niggle... Review by C-J
Very good product just a small niggle... " by , written on 17 October 2014
An improvement over the standard guard (it protects the oil filter which the OE guard doesn't do).

Easy to fit however be aware that the washers from the standard guard need to be removed from the front 2 mounting points to reveal rubber backers and the bolts re-used.

I only have 2 gripes: 1. There are no fitting instructions to tell you to take off the old washers and re-use the OE nuts and bolts. 2. Triumph have welded nuts to the outer front mounting holes that are ready for slightly larger bolts than the OE. Sadly AS do not supply said bolts so instead of a very easy swap it become very fiddly and takes twice as long as you have to work out how to get the nuts back on the inside of the guard.

Great quality, almost fit... Review by live2ridetahoe
Great quality, almost fit..." by , written on 18 May 2013
I received the bashplate for my 2012, US spec, Tiger 800XC. On my initial inspection, I really like the build quality. The finish and the welds appear to be really well done. It really seems like a sturdy piece that is ready for whatever is thrown at it.

When I mounted it to the bike, I did have to remove the charcoal canister on my US spec 800XC to get it to fit. It was a very easy process.

After getting it mounted, I decided to replace the stock front hex mounting bolts with stainless steel button head bolts. I thought the front bolts stuck out a bit far. Maybe in future editions of this bashplate, the front bolts could be recessed into the bashplate. This would give it a cleaner look, as well as ensure that snags on the bolts and damage to the bolt heads would not occur on an impact.

Overall I am very happy with this product. I also liked the 2 day shipping from the UK to California.

Thanks Adventure-Spec. Cheers.
