In the Aus/NZ models yes

The rear mud guard was standard on the earlier models in the US. My 2009 came with one. It requires a different chain guard.

I picked mine up a couple weeks ago. I put on the Touratech skid plate, upper engine guard, hand guards, headlight protector and Windscreen bracket.

Jason - welcome to the forum! Your new bike looks fantastic and the Touratech gear really suits the bike well.

Cry Resetting Trip mileage on 2009 G650GS

I am getting frustrated with the inability to reset my mileage during adventure rides. Does anyone have any suggestions for how I can do it? Currently you need one hand to hold the odometer button, one hand to poke something into the reset button and one hand to steer the bike. Oh wait, I only have two hands!

That doesn't sound right. I just have to push and hold the button for a couple seconds and the trip meter resets itself.

Agree ... you push the odo button to cycle through the modes and hold down for a few seconds to reset. Not that you should have to but have you tried disconnecting the battery???
