I've been on the road for almost a month. I ordered a bunch of parts while I was away and started to get everything sorted today, but ended up with a few snags. I ordered a Zumo 660LM and an over-the-dash GPS bracket
from AdventureTech. I received the GPS but when I opened the package from AdventureTech, I thought the GPS bracket looked a lot like a fork brace. That's because they sent me a fork brace
Oh well. Looks like the correct part won't be here till Monday and I travel again Tuesday :sad:.
From Motostorm in Italy
, I ordered a bunch of Givi bits to include black 37L Trekker Outback side cases, a 42L top case, case racks, Givi aluminum top case bracket, Givi crash bars, Givi kickstand foot enlarger and a few cargo nets, etc. for the bags. The Givi crash bars showed up with a bit of a scratch. Doh! I touched it up today with some textured black Rustoleum. It actually seems to be a very close match. I've still got it taped up but I'll report back tomorrow on how well the Rustoleum blends.
The second issue appears to the fault of Givi; when I laid out the parts to install the SRA3105 aluminum top case bracket, I noticed I had two parts of which I only need one, and one part of which I need two. So much for the "Quality Inspected by #105" insert that was in the packaging. I'll have to shoot an email to Givi in the morning. I can't complain too much. The parts I ordered from Motostorm saved me nearly $700 vs. ordering from the states.
I got the Suzuki center stand
installed. Super easy to install. And I also installed a bunch of decals/paint protectors I bought from Motorcycle.ca
in Canada. These are part #'s 990D0-31J07-PAD
Tomorrow I'll tackle the BarkBusters, Kaoko throttle lock, side case brackets and crash bars. I've also got PC-8 auxiliary fuse block from Easter Beaver
