Honda 3 part luggage 4/5 (would have got 5/5 if pannier rails didn't rust)
Honda fairing lowers 4/5 (can vibrate a bit at certain revs)
Ermax hugger 5/5 (great colour match & easy to fit)
Pyramid fender extender 4/5 (prevents that sauna when riding in heavy rain)
Hein Gericke LED mirrors 4/5 (good, but might have been a little brighter)
HID dipped headlight 8/5 (If you only ever do 1 mod, this has to be it)
Honda heated grips 5/5 (integrated control very neat, price outrageous though)
GIpro gear indicator 3/5 (good but should have a LCD display)
Boys never grow up - their toys just get more expensive.

Ok, here goes:

Pyramid Fenda Extenda 4/5
Calsci medium screen 4.5/5
Acumen DGV 3.5/5....voltage reading low, gear indicator fine
Migsel GPS center mount 5/5
Honda Canada heated grips 5/5
ThrottleMeister throttle lock 5/5 .... looks good and works (not often used though)
Pazzo long levers 5/5
Givi V46 topbox 5/5
Custom Motorcycle seat 4.5/5
Akropovic exhausts 4.5/5 .... pricey
K&N air filter 5/5
Stebel horn 3.5/5 .... still much better than OEM though
Skidmarx hugger 4/5
LED tail light 5/5
BikeVis LED position lights 2.5/5 ....brilliant but don't last
Philips Xtreme Vision headlight bulbs 4/5 ..... brighter than OEM and fine for the infrequent night riding I do

Terrifyingly long list and afraid to add up the total cost.  Obviously its a hobby bike.

Maybe.  Lots of opportunity for add-ons there!

My number ONE mod for a MKII is to fit a new silencer.
I don't like loud bikes, but having fitted a Remus to mine and having left the baffles in it meets EC certification but just sounds so much more like a motorcycle should.

Wish I'd done it sooner............................

Just finished reading this thread from whoa to go.

As a newbie, I've found some interesting stuff in it!
I'm quite curious about the three colour led voltage indicator but can't find any current link to it. Biker Mike?

I'd also like to see a tricoloured led system for coolant temp. - ala Goldie locks & three bears - blue: cold, green: nice, red: hot.

Does anyone know of a product like this?

Also, is there any chance that the previous survey results be retabulated and posted?

It would appear that interest has been lost.


Cheers
Shaun

Here's one, the Sparkbright http://www.sparkbright.co.uk/products.html
plus, these are links to a couple of related posts....

It arrived yesterday and a nice and well executed piece of kit.   Comes with compressive and clear instructions.  The number of voltage points and colour/flash frequency can be tailored to suit your own preference.  The 8mm LED looks just about right to me and is a similar size to the old Lucas warning lights on cars of the 60's and 70's and look nicely in proportion to the surrounding bezel.

Piccies attached for y'all to see, the last was with my 'little Helper' :002:
