Great Scott, weljo, that's a pile of goodies. Is it all for the Versys?? Can it carry that much weight?? :eek:

How are you ever going to be able to list all the modifications below your signature block?? Perhaps abbreviations?

You gotta tell us what's in all those boxes! :yeahsmile:

I need to order a set of Crash bars....gotta put that at the top of the list. For the Fender Extender I pulled off the double stick tape they used and covered the entire area with 3M mounting tape...this stuff is super strong....hasn't budged. If you ever need to take it off just heat it up with a hair dryer or heat gun and with some effort it will come off.

Good Luck!!

Can't list them all.No more space. Everything there was for the bike all except a new camera. The 2 big boxes was H/B crash bars and Givi Liner for the E-55. somewhere theres admore light kit for the e-55 admore light bar.Scorpio Alarm Tire pressure monitoring system and a GoPro HD Camera and more i can't remember. My new pile thats waiting for me has a Algard Engine Guard and a stock seat on the way and hell i can't remember all the stuff i have waiting.But what ever it is i'm sure i need it.:D


Found these shots of a few of the boxes..

LUGGAGE RACK INSTALL

This is what you get.

It's only 4 bolts to remove the factory grab handles.

You have to remove the factory spacers next and put in the shorter ones SW-MOTECH supplies.

I put everything together loose and used a drop of blue (medium strength) locktite on every bolt.

After I put the tubes on each side, I put the rear plate on and tightened it down. This part of the rack has almost no "wiggle room" in it, and it's easier to get the 4 mount bolts to give a little.

After that, you tighten down the 4 mount bolts, and put the seat back on.




Super easy 10 minute job.

FENDA EXTENDA
Flipped open the brake line clips. If you are careful, you can reuse them. Also remove the reflector and bolt, one set per side.

I flipped the loop to the other caliper under the fender; it was easier to remove this way.

I removed the factory tape, which almost fell off all by its self.

Next I scuffed up the mating surfaces.

Mixed up a marine type epoxy (used it to fix my boat's livewell last month), applied, and clamped. There is no easy or good way to clamp this thing. I tried a few different ways, and this is how it ended up.

Finished

Installed. No ugly screws or tape that will let this thing fall off. It's on clean and permanently.

CRASH BARS
What you get.

Loosen these. FIRST THING. It will make this all a lot less frustrating.

Just an idea . . .I used a paint pen to mark the factory engine bolts. Just in case I decide to remove the bars for whatever reason.

I started with the long, rear engine mounting bolt. On the left side of the bike you use the spacer with a flat spot in it. On the other side, you use the longer of the two round spacers.

Make sure these lines are routed correctly so they don't get pinched.

Handy trick for loosening/tightening this bolt if you are doing this alone.

After I got each one on, I put the U-bolt on the frame to hold them in place.

Tube cover is towards the rear to keep the mounting tab off the frame

This is the right side engine mount. It uses a supplied bolt, nut, and the factory engine spacer, it's the part that looks like a spool for a swingarm lift service stand.


The left side engine mount uses a supplied bolt, nut, and the shorter of the two round spacers. Both front engine mounts have a "pocket" that holds the nut so you don't have to try to get a wrench on it from both sides.

Make sure everything is tight, and you're done! (Remember to put the bolts back in for the radiator shroud)

SW-MOTECH Crash Bars . . .for 2007 to 2010 models

They are really good quality, fit really well, and you have this sweet (non-German) easy to follow installation guide now.
