Title: Accessory List
Post by Susan on 01/22/05 at 10:01:55

Sometime ago, Diane suggested we create a place to list/review accessories. If you will all post your accessories in this thread, then I will compile a general list and post it in the technical section for reference. Hoghunter already posted his in Diane's original thread (http://suzukisavage.com/cgi-bin/YaBB.pl?board=RubberSideDown;action=display;num=1101565359) so no need for him to repost unless he wants to repost.  :) Here's an example of what I would like from everyone willing to contribute:

Susan's Recommended Accessories:
Memphis Slims Windshield
Tailblazer modulator (flashes tailight when braking)
Highway Hawk footpegs
Kuryakyn ISO hand grips
Kuryakyn Throttle Boss
Custom modified seat (did it myself using gel)
Willie & Max Deluxe Compact Slant Saddlebags

Wouldn't Do Again:
OEM Engine Guard -- decorative only (doesn't guard anything)

Thanks in advance for contributing!  ;D

Let's see...

Safety first...
BackOFF! Taillight Modulator (http://www.ridesafer.com/store/index.php3?cat=275535&item=732717)
and
H4 Xenon Headlight Bulb (http://www.jcwhitney.com/autoparts/ProductDisplay/c-10111/s-10101/p-286308/mediaCode-ZX/appId-565679)

Mine had a National Cycle windscreen on it when I bought it and I like it.  I will probably change that to a flyscreen during the summer though.

Love these...
Kuryakyn Universal ISO Grips (6240) (http://www.kuryakyn.com/products.asp?bn=metric&ci=2925)

and this...
MAC Muffler (http://www.macperformance.com/store/category.cfm?SID=3&Category_ID=720&CatLevel=2) (and it fits my 98 just fine, even if it does just say 86-87)

I got this on eBay for $30-$35 and am very satisfied with it though some don't like the look.  (update: I am now suing a .50 cal ammo box instead.  It's a lot smaller.)
TRAVEL TRUNK WITH BACKREST AND SPOILER (http://www.jcwhitney.com/autoparts/ProductDisplay/s-10101/p-3082/c-10111)

So far I am actually only using the front one of these... helps keep my thumper cleaner.
FRONT AND REAR MUD FLAPS (http://www.jcwhitney.com/autoparts/ProductDisplay/s-10101/p-3098/c-10111)

For those longer rides...
GEL-TEC CRUZER MOTORCYCLE CUSHION (http://geltecproducts.com/detail.aspx?ID=23)

If you hate that mushy wobble and rain grooves drive you nuts...
SuperBrace Fork Stabilizer (http://www.superbrace.com/)

I don't care for the OEM engine guard either.  I do like this one...
WINGERLINE HIGHWAYBARS (http://www.accessoryinternational.com/Merchant2/merchant.mv?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=AI&Product_Code=AUSWLS02&Category_Code=Z1R)

If you don't have one of these, get one soon.  You will use it.
Bungee Cargo Net (http://www.jcwhitney.com/autoparts/ProductDisplay/s-10101/p-2990/c-10111)

These work great too.
Bungee Nuts (http://www.jcwhitney.com/autoparts/ProductDisplay/s-10101/p-3750/c-10111)

I'm not going into accessory riding gear such as neck gators, leather legs, cooling vests, and Camelbaks since that'll probably be a separate thread.

The Savage is a most versatile little bike.  It morphs to whatever you need.  I needed a lightweight city bike, to commute to work and to go shopping.  For that I needed luggage capacity.  Choices include a luggage rack mounted trunk, leather saddlebags, or hard saddlebags.  I went with LeatherLyke hard saddlebags.  A bit expensive (over $400) but not if they are what you want.  I have a BLog entry (http://www.dslretorts.com/Paladin/archives/000707.html) detailing the mounting of my saddlebags.

The saddlebags carry my Hat -- without which I cannot appear in public.  For shopping a saddlebag can take a gallon of milk, or a ten pound bag of potatos, or a five-liter box of wine, or a 20 ounce bag of tortilla strips and a pint of salsa.

My other accessory is a National Cycle Flyscreen.  At 9" tall and 9.75" wide it isn't much of a windscreen -- but it blocks just enough wind to keep me comfortable at 75 mph.  About $100 new,  I got mine for less than half of that, used, off eBay,

I just got and fitted my last two stainless banjo bolts yesterday, so now I have stainless steel braided brake lines front and back with stainless banjos and bolts, recommended.

Ok,

Accessories I would buy again:
1- The fork brace. Improves the steering very much.
2- I've got a bicycle computer on the steer to read the speed and to use it as a tripmaster. It works great.
3- The optimate. I've got a plug under the gastank to connect the optimate. Read more about the optimate here:http://www.accumate.co.uk/it010003.html

Accessoires I wouldn't buy again:
1- The saddlebags. I like a rugsack better.
2- Handlebars. They loose their rubbers.

I Bought this forkbrace in 1989 from Sebring.

I asked a salesman on the motorrai if Sebring could deliver me this forkbrace. Send me the measurements, he sad.
So I did send him the measurements end he send me this frokbrace.

It's worked fine from the first day...

Kropatchek,

I got my fork brace at SuperBrace (http://www.superbrace.com/).  It's a tad pricey but it's very high quality and works wonderfully.  I believe it was suggested by TheHogHunter in an earlier thread.  I took a chance on it and I am very pleased with it.

P.S. Even though the web page says it fits 86-87, I figured that there had been no changes in the forks that I could find and it fits my 98 just fine.

I'm playing catch up.  Have just been too busy to keep up with all of you for the past month or so.  Here is my accessories so far.  I will come back later and add a link to pictures.

Maier windshield.  Inexpensive and does the job except for a bit of hemet buffeting at highway speeds.  Four hands were necessary for installation.  It looks good from the front but not from the riders seat.  I may buy someting different one day but I'm not in a hurry to do so.

TourMaster Nylon Saddlebags (medium) and matching fork bag.  I love them!  Good quality nylon and leather trim.  The zip off feature will be great for overnight trips and velcro closure means no messing with buckles.  Small enough for the savage but big enough to hold my half hemet.

Hey, on those Superbrace fork stabilizers, they only list 2001-2003. I have a 97.  Any problems that anyone can forsee?
