My modification journey...

Got a few items installed on the bike.
Kawasaki Hand Guards
Kawasaki Power outlet
Kawasaki Color matched panels for the GIVI V35 saddlebags
Kawasaki Versys Gel Tank Protector
Evotech Radiator Guards with Evotech mods for the 2011 Versys
PowerBronze Flip windscreen
PowerBronze Front Fender extender.
RAM mount for my GPS












I am trying to decide which case guards I want. I like how the SW Motech can have highway pegs, but they only come in black.

I like the look of the GIVI case guards, but have read about fitment issues.

Talking PowerBronze Windshield

twowheeladdict,
How do you like the PowerBronze windshield? It looks nice in the dark smoke.
How tall are you? Just want to see if I can fit the same screen.

I like the handguards. Those are the OEM color?

Nothing's too cruel if it's funny enough.

All the website shows is the handguards in black. I was thinking about some Acerbis Dual Road HG's, but I may rethink for matching HG's.

I ordered from the UK. Just a few more dollars than local because they are under 2Kg. I only ordered the shells. I got the brackets locally. Only took 10 days to get here.

Good idea. I may do that. The windscreen looks good too.

Agreed. I just finished my install and will post how I did mine later today. Total cost during my install, $20.
