    Hi everyone - new to forum.
    « on: 2017-06-20 16:59:02 »
    Just sold my RTLC and XR and have consolidated into ex demo Loopy blue and black 17 K1600GT and am loving it so far...apart from the windscreen which sucks.

    Farklage so far ordred:

    Side stand extender
    fenda extender
    gear and brake lever extensions
    Cee Bailey screen
    Under screen bag
    wunderlich tank protector and knee pad things

    Apart from Akros am I missing anything here? Saving up for those

        hi welcome to the forum , sure you will find it a great help, I have fit the bagster tank cover , great match for the metallic blue ,I think it goes on and looks better than the bmw cover ,also the bags look neater, the akras are too expensive and to be honest don't think they give a much better sound , once you wind the bike to around 5000 revs the stock pipes sound great. I tried a set of remus titanium ,although they looked better and were lighter they were actually quitter than the stock, good luck with you mods .

          Congrats and welcome.
          You might want to add some crash bars to that list. Either small ones to protect the engine or bigger ones that also protect most of the fairing.
          Many safe and happy miles.

            I would and do have Aeroflow Wings stops passenger buffering: https://www.aeroflowscreens.com/K1600GT_GTL/K1600GT_GTL_Accessories.htm#AeroWings, DayLong Saddle...pricey at about $1000 to $1200usd,  Handlebar riser if you have short arms like myself.  These will reduce lower back pain after the first try: https://www.helibars.com/products/HeliBars%C2%AE-Tour-Performance%E2%84%A2-handlebar-risers-for-BMW-K1600GT-%7B47%7D-K1600GTL/635.html

              You can find the handlebar extensions on ebay for much less price

                  Yes you absolutely need the crash bars.  If for some reason your baik tips over it can crack the block and poof...no more engine.  The front headlight portection cover is a good idea...I was told that small oval piece of headlight glass is over $1200.  https://www.ebay.com/i/142328448027?chn=ps&dispItem=1  I bought one and have had it for about 4 years.  I can see where some heavy road rocks have hit it a few times
