1. on the plate there are spots for 2 2inch circular lights and 2 rectangular lights as well... where can i get these? mine didn't come with it.

2. the front crash bars have been removed (the inner assembly is in the bike) so i just need the outer bars. any one know where i can get those as well?

3. if the main battery dies for some reason, does the spare really help start the bike?

ill post photos soon.

in Sunnyvale CA
Check Beemer Boneyard for crash bars, there may be other sources. I'm looking for light sources as well, would like to hang fog/driving lights inside the top hoop of the front crash bars, and add amber strobe hazards to the top of the fairing on each side where I currently have 4" floods. I'd like to see pics of your E55 installation. I don't have many recent pics of mine, this one from this past Memorial Day on the way to RTXXV:




I've added ME880 tires, riding pegs, standard case lids and K12RS mirrors. The PO added the KC spots.

Very nice. I'd like to do the dual seat conversion and add a rear case, and the Givi is a good possibility. I do have rectangular brake lights on the rear. They look like typical trailer style lights available at any discount or auto store. I thought they were added by the previous owner, but are brake lights only. I'll take a pic.

also, i extended the shifter lever, as the original one is way too short. makes a huge difference! :)

finally

i found the front crash bars, got them installed, also installed handle bar risers that raise the bars 1 inch and bring them backwards 1 inch. AMAZING difference!, i also added the Cee Bailey's windshield! (i highly recommend this for people who want to ride without wind noise)
