    So, it's a "feature"? My friend pointed it out to me today. Wasn't concerned. If it falls off, the dealer will replace, right? :imaposer

    Just a little concerned about dirt/water egress.

    As far as I know not in the states. I have checked all the usual places and nobody has them (at least not for the DCT version). If you find them post up, er...PM me so I can get a set before the other inmates know who has them. :lol3

    Ya, scratch that. They are now showing some that are specific to the AT that weren't listed when I ordered them. They told me not to try the ones I'm getting and to send them back. She said all of the hardware is different.
    The AT specific ones will not be available until August.

    I'm receiving my Hepco Becker engine and body gaurds today and I hope they go on without a fuss. This trial and error shit is starting to get annoying. I guess that's the price I pay for getting a brand spanking new bike that hardly anybody has anything out for.
    First we have to waite which seems like a eternity for the AT to get here, and now we have to waite for all of the goodies to go on it.

    Please give us a report on you think of them. Post photos from different angles so that we get a better idea of their coverage when you can. I've been looking around and they seem to be pretty good but I'm just not ready to pull the trigger and buy them. Lucky for us you have.

    Upgrades installed:
    1) Hepco Becker engine and body gaurds - Moto Machine.
    2) SWMotech side racks - Revzilla
    3) Oxford heated grips not installed yet - Revzilla.
    4) Oxford X20 Adventure tank bag - Revzilla
    5) Tourtech kickstand foot inlarger -Tourtech
    6) Ram mounts and Garmin cradle - Amazon
    7) Blue Sea junction box - gift

    I am really impressed how the crash bars turned out. They look like they were built with the bike. Although installing the right engine gaurd was a bitch. There are two bolts that secure the rear of the gaurd which are directly behind the exhaust that have to come out and two replacement bolts have to go back in that you can see right behind the rear brake pedal.
    First you have to take the two bolts out of the front of the skid plate and swing it down out of the way to get to the two nuts on the other side.
    2nd, they want you to remove the entire exhaust. We did not. We took out the mid pipe bolt, the can bolt by the seat, and the exhaust sheilds and pushed down on the exhaust just far enough to pull the bolts out and put the new ones in.
