Question KTM 690 Enduro R Durability/Protection Farkle Poll

I am a new owner of the 2014 KTM 690 Enduro R. I recognize that adding farkle is fun and achieves some specific purpose which the original bike might be missing. Farkle which improves the bike's durability/protection is the purpose of this poll/thread. There is an incredible array of durability/protection farkle for this bike which I would like feedback on its actual value. Value is in the eye of the beholder but for me it boils down to how likely is the problems going to happen and what is the consequences, how well does the farkle mitigate the problem and finally is it the best price relative to competing solutions.

Here's what I seen are typically farkle to solve problems (in no order) resulting from crashes:
  • Clutch plate cover
  • Rear brake lever
  • Rim locks
  • Axle pull
  • Turn indicator
  • Radiator
  • brake disk
  • brake fluid reservoir cover
  • replacement tank bolts
  • skid plate

So I would like to know what owners have actually put on their bike. Additionally, if there's something you wasted your money on then call it out in a reply but don't add it to the poll. Hopefully the poll can be used as guidance to things to buy or not which work(and are needed) off-road.
