So far

Post by J biker » Thu Mar 30, 2017 9:37 pm

Fitted KTM sat nav mount. Neat and compact design and price ok

Puig touring screen, Really like this, in low it is clean air, in high a very small amount turbulence, nothing bad though and it gives good protection up to 120ish (Autobahn tested...)

Heated ergo seat. More comfy than standard. Heats yer bits ! ( good on cold, cold days)

KTM tank protector kit fitted. Around £32 and includes the middle part that would normally be called a 'tank pad spine'' Good value.

RnG radiator guard on order.

May look at bar risers, not sure yet, and maybe some form of extended hugger.

In truth the standard bike is very good, these are just bits of fine tuning. :)

KTM sat nav bracket. Its part of the touring pack in the UK;

Panniers
Sat nav bracket
Heated seats

The bracket is the neatest way to mount the Garmin IMO. Tried it out with the Zumo for the first time last weekend, in exactly the right place.

Now happy with all mods, might look at some crash protection. Mounting bracket for top box as well in the future, but that is not needed till next year... a two up trip down to Mugello may be on the cards!

The KTM satnav bracket is at the perfect angle to reflect light off of the screen, making it damned hard to read.

It mirrors the angle of the dash, but I need to take it off and increase the angle of the bend on it, to make it more practical.

The angle is adjustable -I'm using Zumo 390 and can read it very well

I'm often Spain this week and whilst prepping my bike I thought I would fit some genuine ktm handguards, after some discount they were £46 and come with all hardware and fit perfect with no contact on full lock, only mod is you have to notch the right guard very slightly for the brake line.

I tried the KTM handguards on mine, but they restricted the movement. I have my handlebar clamps in the most forward position, though; I guess you haven't.

I guess my bar risers prevent these issues [WINKING FACE]

I didn't see you specifically mention that you'd put them on.

If I'd wanted an old man's sit-up-and-beg bike, I wouldn't have bought a KTM … ;)

You should be fine Mick. I have a Garmin 590 mounted on mine using the KTM bracket. I believe the 590 is slightly larger than the 550. With the windscreen at its lowest and mount adjusted accordingly, the bottom edge of the Garmin only just crosses the top of the instrument panel, similar to the photo above. Doesn't cause any problems.
