SW Motech-Sidestand Foot Enlarger - (good but too much money) Ricks Adventureteh foot is just fine for 28$ Larger Side/Kickstand Foot - AdventureTech, LLC.

I watched a video from Twisted Throttle comparing the SW-MOTECH crashbars to the Givi. The SW ones were thicker steel and has fewer bends so they should be stronger. The bike I'm likely buying has the Givi's though.

The Givi bars hold up just fine, many many Stroms have been saved due to them.

If you have longer legs you might look into Richland Rick's footpeg lowering brackets. They really improved comfort for me.

If you read this post, there's a bunch of things you might find useful on your bike.
https://www.stromtrooper.com/1368697-post2583.html

I notice that you don't have a fork brace on there.
An upgrade to the front and rear suspension might be nice.
A change from the stock seat is useful.
A USB outlet and a 12v outlet and a voltmeter if you plan on running heated gear and other electronics.
Change up the mirrors to something more aerodynamic.
Maybe you will like the tank grip skins made by Tech Spec.
A tool tube is a useful thing to have.
I like reflective rim tape. It comes in black too if you don't like the daytime look.
Hwy pegs make longer distances much easier to handle.
You might like a different handlebar, like the stronger ATV ones.
Adjustable and/or folding and/or shorty levers might be something you like.
Do you ride with GPS? If so, then a mount of some sort will be needed.
It never ends....

All great suggestions, I have Garmin with a mount waiting for installation,and will probably add the power outlets.

Thanks

There's a few different ones out there. I currently have the ones made by Yann (Enduro Guardian) and they are well made and do the job just fine. I have also had a pair that was made by Rivco. RIVCO Products, Inc.:|:::|Highway Mounts & Pegs:|:::|Anti-Vibration Pegs – Black Powder Coated (pair) They are quite nice and I liked that they were small, foldable and looked good too. Depending on how you set your bike up, they could be mounted onto your crash bars or a hwy peg bracket of your choosing.

Yann's pegs currently mount to a bar that is attached to his skid plate (or any other model of skid plate I think): HWY pegs for all Adventure bikes
