Questions about moving from 650 to 1000...

I am considering moving from a 2015 DL 650 to a 2014 DL 1000. I have a few farkles that I am going to be removing from the 650 and I am wondering if any of the will work on the 1000. Do any of the below fit the 1000? I assume the answer is no on these, but thought I would ask.

Suzuki OEM Center Stand for 650
Suzuki OEM Engine Guards for 650
Adventurtech fork brace (does the 1000 even need it?)
Adventuretech kickstand plate
Adventuretech Mirror Extenders for 650
Givi Airflow AF3101
Givi monokey top case mount for 650
Augustus Wind deflectors
Aprilla (Knock Off) Mirrors

And probably the kickstand plate but other than that nothing at all. I did the same thing thinking I'll be able to swap a lot of parts and had to just rebuy them.

Mirror extender will work as well as mirrors.
I know how you feel. I traded 2012 DL650 for 2014 DL1000. I had a lot od farkles and I could only use mirrors and mirror extenders. Kick stand plate will not work.
As for Givi Airflow, only the top portion is the same, the lower one isn't. I had to buy new Givi Airflow for my DL1000 but I used old top portion. Saving the new one until the old one gets scratched a lot.

The Givi top case and the Aprilia mirrors can move to the Vee2.

Adventurtech fork brace (does the 1000 even need it?) - Nope, upside down forks can't use fork braces because the fender moves with the wheel and the fork brace would be stationary. They would "try" to occupy the same space. Fortunately the Vee2 does not need a fork brace. The upside down forks provide a great deal of rigidity.
Adventuretech kickstand plate - Nope, different stock side stand foot on the Vee2
Adventuretech Mirror Extenders for 650 - Yes but, you will need a different riser and bolt on one side. Let me know when you get the bike. We will get you fixed up.
Givi Airflow AF3101 - Nope, completely different mounting. The Vee2 uses an AF3105

I suggest selling the parts here and then contacting me when you get the Vee2. I'll work out a package deal for you. I had been thinking of putting together whole bike package deals anyway.

The ear to ear grin will likely work.

Thanks Guys!!! I have not quite decided to go with the 1000 so that is why I asked this question. Farkles are expensive and I need to account for that cost of replacing them.

I sold my 2011 Wee, and cried the day I traded it in. The good news is that I immediately purchased a 2014 Vee2. The V2 is soo much better, and worth the fact you will need some new farkles. You will not be disappointed- a lot more power, faster, traction control, better brakes, better suspension, and close to the same weight.
