    Various V85 TT Links saved before I purchased my 2020 V85 TT Travel & after scouring the BIG V85 TT Thread

    NOTE:
    I have reactivated my web hosting & while I will do my best to update this note, Priority will be my web domain Alberta Adventure Riders. I have taken this note & made it into 3 Pages (so far) One for Parts, one for Wrenching & one for the Photos so it should be better organized

    NOTE: Some Links may change, but the information should help with a Google Search :deal

    @Night_Wolf thanks for putting this together, it's really nice being able to quickly find stuff.

    Here's a parts webshop I found, it can be used simply to find OEM part numbers and prices - haven't ordered anything yet but at least for EU based folks it should be fine. Use Chrome's auto-translate if needed.

    I don't think there is a "policy", I just don't want the Index, to be something that others are not

    If anyone has links to exhaust/"Y" pipe manufactures; luggage, windshields or suspension. I would appreciate it. I'm NOT looking for the dealer who sells them, I would like direct links to the manufacturer if possible. If a dealer has an "exclusive" product (AFI sockets) I will post those links.
