Accessories

The process of changing my bike is going on and the more I think about it, the more V1000 remains on the top of my list. I'm going to Montreal's motorcycle show saturday and hopefully, I'll take my decision.

In the meantime, I began to look at possible accessories/modifications and I have one (for now...) question.

Sidestand enlarger:
1- Is it needed to correct a flaw?
2- Is it needed only when you park on a soft ground?
3- Or is it totally useless and its only purpose is for those who needs their money to burn their pocket?

Thanks!

I've put a side stand enlarger on all my bikes. They come in handy if you run into parking on hot asphalt, sand,and un-even pavement..Got mine from Motowerk along with most of the stuff he make for the V-1K...https://motowerk.com/collections/kawasaki-versys-1000 .... My thread on it..http://www.kawasakiversys.com/forums...ys-1000-a.html

as mentioned above, a side stand enlarger is worth it and one of the best 1st mods that should be done - unless you always park on concrete!

FAIRING LOWERS
Are lowers available for V1000? Looking for better wind protection for legs & feet. Maybe better look in general too.

I do the same thing except I have a string on it to avoid bending over to pick it up.

I was thinking I would also need some lowers for the itty bitty six fiddy but the fairing design provides more protection than one would think just looking at it. At least on my '15. Iff'n it's really cold just tuck in a bit.

MIRROR EXTENDER
Had to do this on my current ZX-11 so I'll probably need it on the Versys too. SW-Motech's is a nice design but it looks like an aftertought (because it is...).

Instead, I would prefer to install mirrors that are already longer to start with as I think the look is cleverer.

Is there kind of a donor list of bikes whose mirrors will fit on 2015+ V1000 and that will be longer?
