AltRider Universal Joint Guard for Yamaha Super Tenere XT1200Z (2014-current)Rated 4/5 based on 1 reviews.
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 â€“ 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 bikeâ€™s color scheme.
AltRider Universal Joint Guard for Yamaha Super Tenere XT1200Z (2014-current) is available in the following colours:

Superten Altrider uni joint coverBy: Shayne Wadsworth on 17 September 2018Uni joint cover arrived in record time, the laser cut plates mounting holes are spot on as is the bend/profile and fitting is simple. One thing that detracts from the product is the near razor sharp edge, Altrider seems to have missed a step when manufacturing the guard and not finished the edges (a quick file or sand will fix but this doesn’t do much for a black anodised finish!). Some might not worry but if you wear textile pants over your boots it’s likely to cut them. However as advertised it does stop your pants slotting over/catching like the OEM one which in rough going does happen and looks like it might deflect rocks or branches away from the uni cover.
