I think he bought kappa main screen and fitted an x-screen add on top. Correct me if I am wrong.

Sorry for the confusion, Guys.  :006:

It's a kappa and similiar to the the Givi 4105ST (http://www.givi.it/My-motorcycle/?ma=KAWASAKI&mo=Versys-1000-12). Asked for the Givi airflow but Givi here does not bring them in.

Yup, got the kappa which is 16 cm longer than the oem. Don't fancy looking through the windsheild but over it. The MRA X-creen is from the V650 (bought from HPS UK). Fixed it first on the oem sheild but it was flexing a lot when going 200. Versys1K, your're correct.

Put tape over it and sawed a straight line with a hacksaw. Rode back 350km to work last night and the wind flow was good.  Post some pics later.

This is a bloody great Bike....!

capt,

any particular reason you moved from Hepco to Kappa side boxes ?. remembered you were using the larger Hepco junior boxes on the V650.
the Kappas' remind me of the super rugged Pelican cases, which are not available here except for their outdoor surveyors range. shop is in Mid Valley.

Hi Francis,

Seeked a narrow sidebags option as the V1000 is quite a large bike. Lane filtering with bulky hardbag in our traffic might break a few car mirrors. Had also seen the larger Givi 46L trekker sidebags/ Kappar KGR 46L but the 52L Givi topcase had ample of space. I do plan to remove the sidebags and keep the top case on more.

Nice thing about the protruding Givi engine guards, it gives a sense of gauging the space in between cars for lane filtering.

Saw the Givi trekkers and just too much silver for me. Thinking now to even carbon fiber sticker the top case Givi.

Took off the sidestand and welded a round plate underneath. Cost a pound. No danger of sinking when washing the bike on the lawn.


Bought some softer Progrip gel 714 grips on ebay. Thought of BMW grips used previously but just itching to try these on.




Love the airflow now

Hi stlee,

Lots of nice accessories you got installed. Am still waiting for the hepco junior cases to arrive, its only been a month plus..  :lostit: How are the progrip? Any recommendations? Need to find ways to reduce the vibrations on the trottle grip side.

cheers!

here's an alternative to changing the grips. I've used Grip Puppies for a couple of years now and they are great, plus they fit my big hands better than standard grips.  :123A:

Hi Kumar,

Yes, there is a slight buzz in the right mirror after 120km/hr. Left mirror is has no issues and great. Had played around with washers and some rubber rings but no joy. Will post pics of using the oem weight ends on the handlebars.


Was in Malaysia west coast for the weekend. Some pics:

Changed oi at 3500km. The magnetic engine oil plug (old V650 one) looked clean. Split open the oil filter and hat is nice too.



K&N air filter arrived from the UK. For plugs next change, intend to change to Denso IU27.

Order mini voltmeter for the car and V. Decided to going to install a 12V socket so getting a voltmeter plug-in socket type.


Bikevis should be seen nicely from a far.

 
Mirrors with side orange LED but fancy the oem mirrors.


Electrical work will be later as waiting for the cree lights.
