Smile Versys Upgrades

Hello I am a proud owner of a new versys and want to do a few upgrades.
1. New headlight light bulbs, looking for brighter bulbs that wond ruin my wiring harness and melt my headlamp.

2. GPS Mount I want to mount a zumo 550 any good mounts out there.

3. Bar weights has anyone done this to there versys to reduce the vibration?

4.Tank bag looking for a nice one that was made for the bike.

5. Rear brake light flasher, I am looking for something to make my brake light flash when I hit the brakes.

Any opinions suggestion or recommendations would be helpful also reviews as well.

2. See user "Speedy Gonzalez" for a custom Zumo mount. It's great trust me.
3. Get rid of the stock steel bars, and go aluminum. Again, trust me.

So why should I change my bars from steel to aluminum?
Also has anyone put any type of running lights or for lights on there versys?

Personal preference, but they killed 80% of the "buzz" in the bars for me.

Versysred, I have installed the following tail light flasher http://www.casporttouring.com/store/...ry_Code=SIGNAL with great results, it really gets attention. It fits nicely under the seat adjacent to the taillight. I am using a magnetic Fieldsheer tank bag I purchased at a local shop for $100, http://www.bikebandit.com/product/9281 it's a little too tall if you use both bags, but provides two different sizes that zip on and off, I use one around town the larger for longer trips. I used double stick mounting tape and placed large ss fender washers on the underside of the horiz surface of the plastic side panels (farings) for the front outside magnets, works pretty well.
