Here are some pictures of what I have added so far to my bike.

The GPS/Phone holder is a cheap ebay setup which actually works great and has proven to work in heavy rain. I shortened the wire and added the plug so it fits into the outlet on the dash. I can dismount the whole setup or put it back on in 5 minutes max. 5 stars under $20USD.

The FNCNC Bar Ends look like exact copies of the Ducati units for $74USD from Aliexpress versus $240USD for the Italian units. Solidly constructed, add a dash of color and should provide protection for those expensive handguard/turn signals. 5 Stars.

Oil Filler Plug is good, I like having a little more security on my oil filler, somebody who wanted to mess with the bike would need the right size Allen wrench to access the filler hole. $7USD again on Aliexpress. No leakage, stays tight 5 Stars.

Front Axle Slider: I had to trim a little off the spacer bar that runs through the middle to make this fit but it gives a little cheap protection $30USD from Aliexpress, maybe 3.5 Stars for this.

Puig Deflector Shield: Works great, I get no buffeting at all from the stock shield in it's lowest position 5'10"/178cm $114 and worth every penny. 5 stars.

Scott Oiler: I bought the one specified for the MTS but I am still not sold on it. I like the idea and it does seem to moisten the chain when the hose isn't melted through but... I will give it some more time but not sure if I will keep it on or not. It is hard to find a good location for the hose, I am on my third routing job, hopefully this one works.

Fenda Extenda: seems to work great $40USD, 5 stars.

Chain Guard and Rear Disc Guards: These are the Ducati Factory items, I am not sure how much these actually do but I got them anyhow because they were there and I could.

Touratech Crash Bars, Driving Lights, Oil and Radiator guards, and skid plate.  These were all dealer installed options as part of the Thailand Adventure Touring package which also included the spoked wheels, side bags, and center stand for $4,815USD. The top box with the backrest came to $1,818. All top notch great quality stuff, no complaints or problems with any of it. The bike itself is $18,758 plus $303 if you want it in white. All those are at the current exchange rate. So yeah, I have invested a bunch in this bike (about $27,000 USD so far because the exchange rate was worse when I bought it) and have over $1,000 more stuff ordered. I love the bike and the only problem I have had with it is my Fuel Level Sensor started acting up on my last trip, I haven't gotten that looked at yet because I am back in Iraq working again.

I forgot to mention my Go Cruise Throttle lock, $30USD, works okay but speed slowly backs off and don't want to make it too tight so it is hard to roll off. I have ordered the Kaoko DUC125 for it.

Also the Touratech Rear Fender Extension is great, seems to cut down on the spray and has a great finish. Ordered the generic one from the Touratech distributor here and drill a few hole to fit it.

hawaiinbrian,
Thanks for the info and the great photos - nice looking set up . Would appreciate some feedback on how you find the Kaoko throttle lock once you have it fitted and whether the bar end sliders affect the installation in any way

Here is a picture somebody posted of one mounted, I do not think the bar ends will affect the mounting at all.  The Go Cruise does help a lot but I am hoping the Kaoko is better.

Thanks  - I also have a similar throttle assist to the Go Cruise and also have those bar end hand guard sliders fitted so very interested to hear your findings on the Kaoko once installed

I'll let you know in mid-October! Sorry I'm working in Iraq so my travel plans have to revolve around the job, I have a big pile of stuff sitting at my friends house in the USA waiting on me.
