How about some description of the products, and install ease?

The RAM mount for my phone or GPS was an easy install. It took longer to assemble the "gripper" component than installing it on the bike. The engine guards are from Kawasaki and the front bracket was a PITA to install because plastics were removed. The two engine guards took less than 5 minutes after the front bracket and plastics were installed.

Those engine guards scream for some LED running/fog lights.

Check out mondolights mm10s. I had them on my Concours and Triumph Trophy.

Which leads to the question: does a Versys 300 have spare electrons to run running lights and other electronic farkles?

The 650 seems to not have a whole lot of spare watts hanging around to be put to good use...

Can't see myself paying $400 for the factory oem lights. I will check on the mondolights...

Yes. There are connectors that the oem lights and the relay will connect to. They even have a spot for a toggle switch for the lights.

Givi E30 top case installed. By far the easiest install out of all accessories so far.

I think all Versys 650 alternators output just 336 Watts at 5,000 RPM (24 Amps, 14 volts at 5,000 RPM) and the standard load when the bike is running (lights, fuel injection, computer, fan, etc.) is around 285 Watts - and unfortunately connectors doesn't = spare amps to run all this stuff.. just sayin'.

I'd hate to hang all the electronical farkles on a bike and find out I don't have enough stator output to run everything. .

That doesn't leave much juice left for accessories.

Please feel free to call me a fool or ignorant if I'm barking at the wrong peony bush...
