One thing to be aware of, is that the LED linked is Red, and probably replacing a "white" bulb. Red is what you want for brakes, but if you are using this bulb to light your tag through a clear/white...

2014 ?

My bolt fell off and my spring broke after a few hundred miles. I found them in the skip plate though and put the bolt back in. Spring was broken. Went to the dealer to pick up my plate and they did...

Flexx bars/ BRP/Scotts sub mount

I'm leaning towards that setup on my 2014, but have not quite pulled the trigger. Still too many decisions to make. Bend, handguards, what fairing, etc.

What Handguards have you have mounted?...

I just installed the Right side as I'm not carrying anything on the exh side at the moment. Strapped a small Kriega bag to it with tools/spares. I think it works quite nice and is very well done....

You are not going to be walking much in Tech 10s!

I have the Tech 10s. I've had them for quite a few years (2007 ?) and they have taken a beating and saved my feet on multiple occasions. Things that I'm sure would have broken foot parts for sure in...

That was pretty quick. Won't have time to try them out for a week or so as I'm out of town, but they look nice.

Pelican top case

I have a Pelican case as a rear case on my VFR that I commute on (No side bags so I can lane split). I can't imagine that not being too much on the rear of the 690. I use Caribou's mounting for the...

I've been seriously considering the rear tank also. Good use of space that would be hard to use other wise. I also like that it is somewhat protected by the racks in case of a crash. But...
