I picked up my new 2015 650 ABS LT

I have a box load of parts on order and need a wiring schematic for this bike. Is it available online here or somewhere else that I might find it.?

Also, It is evident that my trusty 8 year old Wolfman Enduro tank bag is not going to work on this bike. What do you guys recommend?

Thanks in advance

You will need relay to run the accessory power connections: one under the upper meter cover; two under the left fairing. Relay part #99994-0556

Did you refer to that as the lime lepidoptera on another forum? Nice bike. I have really enjoyed mine I bought a really cheap Joe Rocket magnetic tank bag for my white version and have been satisfied. I try to lift the bag straight up since everyone says mag bags scratch the paint. I like tank bags but prefer small ones for gloves, glasses & misc.

Yep, my "Friends" are a hoot to hang with. They're just jealous. But, I am thinking of naming her June Bug.

I think so, but I am only an owner for a day.

A one thousand dollar discount will work wonders in buying a new 2015 vs 2016.

Yes, my bike was between $2300 and $2700 below MSRP, Ottawa had a even better discount.

I'm with Rverde on the smaller tank bag. I bought a Joe Rocket Manta on Revzilla. Haven't had any issues with scratching. They have many to choose from.

Is it me or does the windscreen on the Kawasaki page look to be non-stock? Also it looks like they have mounted a GPS (Garmin?) in a SW Motech mount.

for a ride or the black one or the new one etc etc.....

My Burgman was affectionately called the "Recliner"
My Husqvarna TR650 was called "My Mistress" (wife hated that bike)
My DRZ was called "Bumble Bee" (yellow and black)
My last Vstrom was called "POS"

This one needs a designation.

I settled for "ghost" for my white 2015. Problem with the stock exhaust it's so quiet the white tails wait to panic and run across my line when I'm very close. Deer hooves don't work well on paved roads.

I agree w/ you, tho' it MIGHT be a Kawi "aftermarket" shield....
