The front fender on the Triumph Tiger 800 XC is positioned very close to the front wheel. If you use knobby off-road tires, the gap gets even smaller and you run the risk of locking up your front tire with mud and rocks.
Touratech's riser for the original front fender on the Triumph Tiger 800 XC is very easy to install. A stainless steel adapter goes between the tire and the fender, increasing the clearance by 15 mm (0.6 inch). No modifications to the original fender are necessary.
