Fitted more new tyres
Also ground out some bead on the rear rim to make it easier next time. It was still hard work even with a bead breaker and I've never managed to break the bead using the side stand - even using a friends 1150GS sidestand
Powder coating the crash bars orange this winter and the main stand black.

Yup. Works great. Just wish it was that easy to seat the bead.

Relocated the Mikuni to the back of the airbox and pulled a new vacuum source from the rear cylinder. Ran new fuel lines and buttoned it all back up. Also worked on my trailer.

Must be part of your super-secret double-naught spy work with your low-level FEMA clearance and (snicker) Texas Security License, yes?

Wise man, he has the centre stand strapped in place. If it rolls forward off the stand with no rear wheel in place its a pain.

What did you use to mount the driving lights? I have a set mounted to my crash bars and would like to mount them similar to yours.

I have similar lights, mounted on a straight length of 1" x 1" x 1/8" angle. There are threaded holes on the aluminium front subframe that I used. Factory use the holes for the horn mount.

Mine had adjustable L brackets that I bolted to the holes that held the screen/grill assembly.
