new owner 1190 questions

Ok first of all I have spent the last week reading i know answers to my questions are out there i just havent found them sorry if this is duplicate post..

Next week i plan on pulling the trigger on a 14 1190 R. I had a 07 990. How hard is it to change the oil on the 1190? I hated the fact that on my 990 I had to remove the gas tank and strip it down to just change the oil.
It appears even though i live on the oregon coast dust isnt a huge problem, but i think ill be doing the uni air filter mod asap.
How tough are the tourtech upper crash bars? Looking at pictures i cant tell if the mounting locations are a solid mount.
Exhaust will also be top priority does that require remapping? I seem to see conflicting post on that topic.
Also ill be needing a tank bag, rear rack and a good set of soft bags if anyone has good suggestions for a decent price.
Thanks for any help.

Dead easy on the 1190. Might have to remove bash plate depending on which one you have. With KTM plate you just need to lower it a bit to get at front magnet/rod/thingy (6 bolts) and let oil run down the bash plate.
