As to mods'
Unless you plan on a passenger, Dales rack is very useful. Allows you to not have to unload a duffle to add fuel. This is available in the states and off of this forum. Can bolt rotopax to that for spare fuel, water containers.
I upgraded my suspension with Cogent Dynamics shock and fork valves.
Bash plate and crash bars...many choices
Many other tidbits, but those are my top suggestions.
This shows the Dales rack in place of the rear seat.
Dance as if no one is watching.
I was already looking on where to order a rack like that, but thats hard to find for some reason...
Rotopax is a must!
Not sure what I'm going to do with the suspension, most of the mods are really expensive!
And I still need a skidplate indeed.
Hope to find some sponsors maybe to lower the costs
Wide foot pegs will help with control and comfort and are well worth the money.
A comfortable seat is necessary for any long distance travel. The stock seat my be good for you. If it is, your set.
Sturdy luggage will be necessary. It doesn't have to be expensive, just sturdy. Hard or soft sides will do. There are advantages and disadvantages to both.
Tires suited to the riding your doing. Don't stress this too much. They sell tires all over the world.
That's all you really need to look at. Don't get caught up in trying to rebuild it into something else. Minor convenience mods are all you need. If your looking at modifying the suspension, you picked the wrong machine.
