Just added a Touratech large kickstand foot. I had to provide my own screws since the ones that were supplied were too short.

No issues with paint wear yet.

Here's the front mounting point looking up under the fender:

You're welcome. I agree. I usually do the same but what I'd applied on the tank for the aft straps didn't seem to want to stay put. I took the stuff off and haven't seen any damage to the paint or plastic yet.

FWIW I've always used clear background material to protect my painted parts.
BUT I do think a well designed part shouldn't need them.

That looks to be a more elegant solution that what I've done. I think I'll go with yours. Thanks!

Thumb Russell saddle

At last. I received the Russell saddles today. Fit is perfect for me. I had them make the seat covers out of automotive fabric rather than vinyl or leather both of which I don't like because of the summer heat.

Question Rad guards?

Has anyone done DIY radiator guards? $140 for a set just seems a bit much.

Rad Guards

I installed the radiator guards. It took about 10 minutes, including finding the tools. They are rather expensive, even for stainless parts, but may save a radiator from a problem some time in the future.

I have put on the 25mm risers, side stand enlarger, gearshift enlarger. Waiting for the luggage plate to replace the rear seat and the crash bars which were backordered when I got the bike.

I also installed an old Big Mac tank bag that I thought I would never be able to use again. Works great.

For us to see how you attached the grill etc.

This is going to get spensive

Just put the order in for these yesterday and bam, on my front door this afternoon! I guess living a few hours away from the store is going to be hard on my wallet. :) Now have to go hide them before the wife gets home as I still don't have the bike to put them on!:(
