My Wee came with the AF301 on it. Very happy with it.

Good source for bolt-on/add-on farkles. they carry a good range of Hepco & Becker accessories. They cover 650 & 1000 V-Stroms from 2011 up as well as other makes and models.

You can look for used farkles to save some green. I was skeptical about the fork brace, found one used and love it. I made my own highway pegs. they are very nice to have. stock brakes on the wee area nothing to write home about. Puny little caliper pistons they got and the cheapest pads the bean counters can find. I had a scooter that had brakes a lot better then my wee had when I got it. before the prior o put the wee up for sale he had the brake pads and all fluids replaced. he put in stock pads and I replaced them with aftermarket pads. some day I may put on different calipers.

Look around for used farkles on c/l and ebay as well as forums such as this and advrider.

I put an air seat cover on my wee and like it.

Off road, and particularly sand, a steering damper. Not needed for casual off road track to the lake stuff, but all day riding on not so good dirt roads it'll pay for itself V laundry bills alone

All the Farkles are great, but the most useful item I've added is an airhorn which I installed inside the cowling. It is a Stebel Nautilus Compact Mini Air Horn.
