WTB Crash Bars and Farkles for my 2008 R1200GS
Hey Guys & Gals,
I just purchased my 2nd ever R1200GS last week, a 2008 model. I installed Hepco & Becker lower crash bars on my previous 2007 as I read they don't require removal when having valves checked during a service.
So I'm starting all over "Farkling this 2008" now and installing lower crash bars are my first order of business.
1) Which lower ones do you folks recommend I narrow my choice down too and for what reasons...Why?
2) Next farkle would be additional front & rear lighting to be seen better. I installed the large Admore brake/running/turn signal large light bar on the rear of the '07 and REALLY liked the visual presence it gave my bikes rear visibility! I also tried a pair of "Hyper-Lites" too but they kept screwing up possibly from the Can-Bus device. Anyone have other recommendations though?
3) My previous '07 GS came with round 3" chrome housing PIAA Lights that used a 1100 type replacement bulb which I found bulbs online at Amazon for a reasonable cost. Any recommendations for a solid, reasonably priced set of Front Driving/Auxiliary lights?
4) Lastly here, I want to upgrade the WIMPY Ass OEM horn!! I went with the Denali Mini Sound Bomb horn with the replacement wire dongle from Twisted Throttle on the '07. Frankly, it honestly DIDN'T sound much louder than the stock OEM one I took off! Although, I did NOT install an additional relay on the '07 Mini Bomb...Would that have made a difference? But overall, I was disappointed with the Plug-n-Play results of the Mini Bomb. Your Recommendations Folks?
Thank you all for your input and recommendations here. Ride Far, Long and Safe All.
