Got one of these off of eBay this week, comes with couple of stickers and comprehensive instructions. Will pop it on later today and let you know how it goes. £28:00 inc p&p which ain't too bad and its very nice quality!

Hi, just type in on eBay Honda Crosstourer Camel Toe and adverts should pop up.
I will add its a nice addition to the bike BUT the extra weight of the toe once bolted on affected how efficiently the side stand located into the up position I.e I have since beefed up the side stand spring by adding a second one so it snaps up like it should. Before it was a lazy bouncy affair when I added the camel toe but that's just my preference. It's acceptable without the spring mod.

I did order one today. Just one more question: What kind of extra spring did you add to the side stand?

Well I have a tool box drawer full of springs. What I ended up using which works very well was one of those springs you would normally use to hold an aftermarket exhaust end can on to the main centre exhaust pipe. I just hooked both ends over each end of the main side stand spring thus making said spring twice as strong. Not at home as I'd take a photo but if you want me to, I will do so over the weekend ;-)
