Congrats on the new bike.

My '14 1000 came with Suzuki:
crash bars. No issues.
taller wind screen- 5'10"- no buffeting. I think your stock screen is different though.
side cases. You don't even notice they are there but I now use Givi outback 37 for longer trips & soft bags for a couple of days.
I added Suzuki:
fog lights. Overpriced but plug into wiring harness so no splices. Purchased with bike and installed at first service. Could have saved $ here.
center stand. Easy install with the spring tool. Easy on/off even when loaded. No clearance issues.
tank bag & ring. Easy on/off for gas. Keeps pockets empty and carries sun glasses, gloves, maps, tire gauge ... junk drawer.
Look at Adventure Tech for Strom specific parts. Front fender raising kit, side stand foot and mirror extenders are the best bang-for-the-buck farkle$ I've spent.

Most items are available aftermarket for less with sometimes better quality. Don't even think about OEM heated grips.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

Suzuki heated grips are ridiculously expensive and more failure prone than Oxford, HotGrips and even bar wrap around heaters.

I went with the Suzuki top box to match my side bags, but nothing else.

Haven't bought any oem accessories. There too pricey. The ones I've got came with the bike...side panier, hand guards and center stand. For the other acc...skid and crashbar : sw-motech. Oxford heated grip...givi top case...shorty levers

Im hoping my OEM centre stand and crash bars will cross over onto my new XT when it gets here. Also hoping the SW Motech side stand foot will fit with the OEM centre Stand. For some reason Suzuki are saying their side stand foot is not compatable with their centre stand. Ive got Oxford heated grips on both my current bikes and they are awesome, very rare to have them on full as they are too hot, Also like the "Auto shut off" feature if you forget to turn them off. I do like the replacement chain guard that Suzuki have for the 650, rather nice touch but will depend on price. I love the Givi Airflow screen which I have but no sign yet on availability for the new models.
