Input needed...

This is a pretty rare opportunity. I have the opportunity to have an aftermarket part fabricated and produced. This product could be made available to the entire V-Strom community. We are talking Laser cutters, robot welders, injection molding, powder coating, plastics....anything. I can't go into detail as to where these will be produced, but it is a major company that will allow it's employees to perform projects at, the low cost can be passed on.

I am posting here because I need to know what people need that is A) too expensive or B) not currently available. (no fiberglass lowers...sorry)

My first thought is a backrest to fit the grab bars.

What do you think?

1. Less expensive side case racks.

2. A driver's backrest.

3. Light weight and less expensive crash bars, and engine guards.

Yes, a DL650 can definitely do a major smokey burnout!!

Fairing lowers that shield the legs from the wind.
Elbow bracket to move the hose locations for a TB sync.
That three way seat back luggage rack thingy from the Buell.
Bar weights with taps for mirrors.

Quick-Release Mount "pucks" (for lack of a better word) that could be used to adapt soft-luggage or Pelican type cases to Givi mounting racks.

A removable rack extension that bolts on over the passengerís seat or a replacement mega rack that allows several removable size options.
A trunk to go on aforementioned rack. It should be quite large starting at the passengerís seat extending slightly past the tail light and include a drivers back rest option. (Ever seen a Japanese delivery bike trunk?)
A fork brace and replacement fender to accommodate it.
A center stand that can be removed via clip pins.
True side bags not the sails Givi makes or the ammo box look.
Universal mounting hardware that bolts to crash bars for lights.
2 or 3 universal accessories mounts that bolt to the handle bar mounts.
Adjustable pegs (dirt and street) and foot controls.

Just a few thoughts

Lean donít whine.

How about a skid plate/grill cover that does not require crash bars for mounting?
