900 farkles
« on: July 03, 2021, 11:56:28 AM »
I bit the bullet and ordered 900 GT Pro yesterday, moving on from my 2014 XC.  What are the most popular/useful accessories?

Fitted so far: Givi top box rack, Speedo Angel screen protector, UA case clamp, and a tank pad! 
The Puig screen looks good value, but Ill make a call once Ive done some more motorway miles with the stock screen.

Awaiting fitting: Triumph lower engine guard, Givi pannier rails.
Transferred from 800: Denali soundbomb mini, Givi tank ring.

On my GT 900, I attached SW-Motech engine bars, straight forward to fit. Also some wheel / axle protectors.
Also I spec'd a quick shifter, best one I've had on a bike.

I did change out the screen for an MRA / blade , though the standard was ok , just a bit of body turbulence
Fitted an Evotech "above dash" sat nav mount, good piece of kit.

Oh, and binned the tyres for Metzler R1's right away..

I have purchased the following accessories, Head light protector (cost a fortune to replace a led headlight if cracked by a stone). Taller screen, Hugger, Tank protector, Upper and lower crash bars, front mud guard extender, Radiators guards and luggage rack to fit my existing expedition panniers. Evo Sat Nav mount, axel protectors.

Put Tour-Tech lower crash bars on my 900 as soon as I got it home from the stealer.  The Tour-a-Tech ones seem to cover the whole engine the best.  Transferred the Denali driving lights from my T800 XCx which are super bright. Then a Sargent seat went on my 900 within the first 500 milesa vast improvement over the stock seat.  Ordered the metal Expedition Panniers at purchase but the racks were back ordered so that had to wait a month for those to install.  Really like top loading cases over clam shells as you can stuff a lot of stuff in them, and things dont fall out on the ground when opening the cases. Next a Puig windscreen went on at about 900 miles and its also is a vast improvement over stock. And just lately I put the SW Motech Pro tank bag on which is nice, but with the fuel filler moved so much forward on the 900s it interferes with key insertion or removalthus the bag has to be popped off briefly to get the key out/in.  A minor inconvenience.  Tried the Rox Risers but didnt care for that at all so it was returned and the bars put back to stock position.  Whew, with ~3500 miles on my new 900, I think Im done farkling for a while.  :142:

Thanks, Matt

Sure, look at the link below.  They are made in Europe (Spain I believe) so should be readily available in the UK.   Kinda' pricey but IMHO worth money spent as it cuts down on wind noise significantly, especially at speed.  You do not look through it, but rather over it.  I now mostly ride with the helmet visor up (with sunglasses) at speeds under ~100 kph.

Purchased my Sargent Seat direct from Sargent Cycle in Florida, USA.  The initial lot sold out quickly so I was told the seats are now made to order as  paid orders come in.  Didn't take long, as mine arrived in about a week.  First 50 miles I was kinda' skeptical, but it broke in quickly and now is all day comfortable.
