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. 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

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)...
