Nice ride!

Yes, its farkle time. I'm going to start with the important things first: kickstand re-locator and a skid plate.

Recommendations?

I have a Black Dog Cycle Works relocator. Works well. I also like the CJDesigns approach of moving the entire sidestand back and away from the engine. Whatever you do, just get the sidestand off of the engine.

I bought a Weld86 bash plate from CJDesigns. Good price and I like it a lot. The BDCWs unit also looks good. I've seen some people bend their BDCW unit, but I think you can bend anything with a 500 pound dirt bike. :lol3 Some people are buying the Slavens unit now: http://www.slavensracing.com/shop/sk...0990-adventure I have no experience. I bought the Weld86 because it looked pretty indestructible.

Skid plate is a very good idea the standard one is like tinfoil just get somthing that will protect the clutch cover as well.
A decent set of crash bars mine definately saved me a decent amount on paint work.
And remove the little rubber bits from the foot pegs much better grip in wet conditions.


Otherwise congrats on the awesome bike :D

Air Filter
 
OK, I've downloaded the manual and I still can not find the air filter???

Where did they hide it?

Stock skid plate is fine for mild offroading/adventure riding...I made mine from carbon fiber and kevlar and it's more lightweight than aftermarket aluminum ones, plus it's MINE...Here's what I did to it today after trying to climb 4 very high consecutive steps that I've climbed in the past (when I was 25lbs lighter)...a black spray can and maybe some raisin will bring it back to old shine status...(maybe add 1 leaf of C/F)...
