Not adding any farkles to Vstrom

So, here are a couple of pictures of the Yann skid plate/highway bars and the RAM GPS mount with an inexpensive Marine power outlet. The center stand is on back-order and the tank bag should be here any day...

Where did you source that skidplate?

That would be a Yann's skid plate (w/hwy bars), I have one on mine and it is a first rate piece of equipment.

You order them from the man himself.

Yep, It is a Yann skidplate and highway bars. Everything went on very well and I am very pleased with it. BTW, sometimes I see my photos, sometimes I do not... Thought I was doing it correctly, but maybe not...

Is the 'bracket' the upper fairing bar? Not sure the terminology, but is it the tubular part the skid plate attaches to, where the 'hardware upgrade' connects?

It relies on the cross bar of you crash guards. The crash bar's crossbar should have 1/2" at least space (preferably more) from the engine to afix his mounting hardware. It will not work w/o some sort of engine guard.
