What fits? Farkling a '14 for adventures
« on: June 13, 2014, 03:03:23 pm »
Maybe this thread exists elsewhere, but I can't find it.
Trying to sort out what accessories fit the new '14 models and what ones don't.  Here is what I know so far from scouring the forum and other sources, and what I am looking for help with.  Please contribute your knowledge and or correct me where wrong.  Please state what you know fits, from first-hand knowledge, and give a link to information you have.
Thanks!

Luggage racks:  Seems there are some brands that need adaptation for '14 ES for side cases, but most fit the base model.
Crash bars:  Seems the ones for pre-14 fit.
Skid Plates:  Seems the ones for pre-14 fit.
Side Stand foot extenders:  I read where the kickstand is different so pre-14 do not work
Highway pegs:  ??
U-joint protector:  I read that guys successfully transferred old style to '14s.
Headlight guards:  I think I saw that these transfer to new models.
Handlebar risers:  I haven't seen anyone say the existing ones will work with the redesigned angled bars.
What else?

Anyone know if there is a taller windshield for the '14?
I just got mine and I am a tall guy. If i hunkered down about 4-5 inches it was a entirely calmer world (with shield in highest position).

How about mirror extenders?
These new mirrors are still not wide enough for some of us.

I thought the mirrors on the earlier model were excellent so I bought a pair to put on the new bike as I didn't like the new ones.


I'm old enough to know better but don't

Yamaha offers an optional taller screen for the new model.  I ordered one and it's in transit as we speak.  It looks to be a taller version of the stock screen.  I actually like the stock screen, but in strong side and head winds I get some helmet buffeting. 

Hopefully it's better than the optional OEM tall screen offered for the 12-13s, which was a buffet fest from the get-go.   Will write a review after I switch to the tall one.
