Title: Farkles: The good, the bad and the ugly - Vendors?
Post by: Lord Knormoer on January 21, 2014, 06:35:00 am
What have you fitted to your K50 and of those, which do you like and which not?

What are you planning or thinking about but cannot source or maybe not convinced about the value.

Some mods are functional, some look great and some just seems to add no value.

My list:
BMW enduro bashplate +1
BMW LED Spots +1
BMW crashbars +1
BMW headlight guard +1
SW Motech wide footpegs +1
SW Motech brake pump protectors +1
SW Motech brake reservoir guard -0
Touratech frame guards +1
Touratech handguard extensions +1 in winter
Touratech Final Drive cover +1
Touratech Crash Bung +1
Rockfox radiator guards +1
Tooltube/Goosetube +1 (Replaced by Wunderlich frame bags)
Wild@Heart sidestand support (big foot) +1

In terms of extras, my bike is fully specced including cruise control, navigation, top box and panniers.

Wishlist/ToDo list:
Two finger levers - not sure this will actually help, I already ride two finger style with normal levers.
Hella power socket - fused and relayed but direct from battery for running compressor. Have the parts, must do.
Handlebar risers - not 100% convinced I need them yet, I am not that tall.
Adventure screen - I like the 2014 Adventure screen, wonder about the cost though.
Upper crashbars - not sure I need them, not sure they add value apart from offering mounting point for crashbar bags, not convinced I really like the look.

I'm curious to hear from my fellow K50 owners.

Ek is nou nie 'n Lc eienaar nie, maar my vraag is hoekom sal jy gaan vir Bmw farkles en nie ander brands nie?
Ja jy het Sw motech ook, maar as ek dink aan Bmw farkles kry ek altyd die idee dat dit heelwat duurder as selfs as motech is.

Simple answer, when I bought the bike almost nobody had stock of any alternative items.

Crashbars is a good example, I wanted stainless which limits to BMW and Touratech. With no amount of effort could I even get an estimated delivery date on cashbars from Touratech. At that point the alternatives, that I was willing to fit, could also not supply.

Same for lights, only BMW could supply an integrated harness with switchgear, bracket and lights. Might have saved a few rand buying the lights elsewhere.

Bashplate, wanted aluminium for weight, could not get stock of an alternative.

Headlight Guard, don't like velcro strips and other such brackets on a R200k bike. The BMW option integrates well and is good quality.

I can go on but for me it's simple. Anything I fit needs to be of such workmanship that it looks factory fitted. In addition, the fitment cost was minimal since I ordered most of the gear with the bike.

The above list is the only BMW kit, the rest is Touratech, SW Motech, Rockfox etc.

Hope that answers the question.

Mine has the following:

- BMW Headlight protector ( Think this is essential for gravel roads, and looks good)
- Touratech stainless radiator guards ( Essential for gravel roads to protect radiators)
- Touratech hand guards (White) plus spoilers (Black) ( Work like a charm when it is cold or raining)
- BMW aliminium bash plate (Essential for dirt and jeep tracks)
- BMW crash bars ( Essential, already saved me a lot of money on the previous LC I had)
- Touratech upper crash bars ( I think essential to protect radiators in case of a tumble)
- SW Motech wide foot pegs ( Much more comfortable)
- Touratech frame protectors ( Mine is already scuffed badly,
- Touratech power socket directly from the battery (Needed for the compressor to pump the wheels, battery not readily accessible)
- Touratech adjustable break lever ( A much better compromise for standing and sitting)
- BMW GPS
- Touratech aluminium head protectors
- Ackrapovic Exhaust ( Thanks PistonPete)

The only other thing I am considering is the BMW LED Spots, Touratech has developed a bracket so that they can be fitted with the Touratech top crash bars. Not sure if it is worth the money though?

- My bike is also, as all the other 2014 models, fully specced with cruise control, etc etc. I did not fit the panniers and top box. I use the BMW small soft top bag, and Touratech's bag which fit onto the passenger seat cleat, when the seat is removed.

I was recently forced to travel off-tar at nigh during a rain storm to help a riding buddy. More light is good :-)

You could get similar or even better quality spots for less money than the BMW part but the integrated wiring harness from BMW is great. It looks factory fitted and works with the main lights without compromising the wiring of the bike. Another point to consider is that the BMW LED spots provide peripheral lighting to compliment the LED headlight. Most OEM spots I have seen will just add more light where you already have good lighting.

OEM or after-market? Just to clarify?

The LED spots we sell, certain of them are available in flood or spot, which equates to 45 degrees flood beam or 25 degrees spot beam.
Hope that throws a little, erm, LIGHT on the subject!  :biggrin:
Flood Beam (45deg) / Spot Beam (25deg)

An interesting industry variance :joker:

I am used to using OEM when referring to Other Equipment Manufacturer and calling the original by it's given brand name like BMW/KTM.

In the end, if you ride a K50 with LED lighting you have no/little need for more 'spot' lights and could benefit more from 'flood' lights so you can see critters creeping up to the road side preparing to jump you at night. These lights are also good for daytime visibility and will not melt the rear lenses of the cars in front of you.

Very nice!

Can you post a close-up of the brake lever? Standard one is probably the cheapest looking part on the bike.

How available is the Touratech lower crashbars? Last year stock was a challenge.

Guys, can I make a point to save getting beaten up un-beknown.

I sadly don't have the luxury of spending much time on the internet and much less on the forum, simply because I am busy in my Workshop, or delivering, or fetching spares, or running up my e-troll account. Not bitching I would rather be busy than quiet!
If I have to employ someone to do the above running, my prices will change for the worst, so it is a catch 22.

Simply put, I wish I could have the time to spend more time with ya'all and answer some of your questions and queries, but two hands, half a brain and 24 hours in a day doesn't allow this luxury.

If you need to know something please send an e mail sales@blingkingbikes.co.za or 082 450 8878

Thanks for understanding.

I sell Wunderlich, predominantly their Highway pegs, handlebar bags (100?, and counting!), and obviously the Vario- spoiler, and one or two screens, etc.
I have been working with Denver for 2+ years on shows together ( we share a stand: AMiD, Africa Bike Week, 1000 Bike Show etc), and I sell Wunderlich down in the Cape, at his prices, so no cost difference there.

So ANYTHING Wunderlich you want, is 72 hours, and 1 phone call away, providing it is in stock :)

Hi Guys,
I made  balls up on the costing of the tank pad set, I used the matrix from whenst it was ZAR9.25/euro and made a typo on it. Contact your local suppliker for price once it is ordered.
At present there is no stock of said item.
Title: Re: Farkles: The good, the bad and the ugly - Vendors?
Post by: BlingKing on January 23, 2014, 02:24:03 pm
Another thing to note and this is probably on behalf of all the creditable suppliers.

I have just counted - there are 4394 line items in the Wunderlich line-up.
To stock all of those I would need a warehouse the size of Builders Warehouse. I would also go out of business because it is not uncommon for a part to sit in stock for a year or more before someone decides they want a bit of farkle on their bike.
So I stock the quick movers, that I can actually make a meager profit on (I know this is not allowed but it's true  :patch:)
However if you need something that is not in stock simply contact me or one of my agents and it only takes 3 weeks these days and it will be in your hands.

Just for the record, our comments amounted to light hearted teasing, getting beaten up would have been much more severe  :pot:

Zebra, can you confirm pricing on the Frame Bag and Boxer Bag?

I see Denver kindly quoted on the tankpads already. I noticed a few scrathes in the paint where they go from when my pants had a bit of mud on. They should take care of avoiding further damage in that area.

Great quality product, I have one and had on my previous bikes.

Just note if you have an Enduro skid plate, the clearance is a bit tight, as in you will need to bend the front of the plate back a few mm to get clearance.

One more thing, the mudslinging product for the rear is coming too.
I've got on one order here in the UK.
Past experience shows that apart from keeping crud off the rear suspension, it's quite useful in keeping it off you and the rear frame.

Lord K, glad we could assist you with 3M Dual Lock for your light strip, thanks for the heads-up on RockFox; since we already stock their combined head light protector, I will ask Mike if he will supply me with undrilled amber light strip (only).

It looks good! :thumleft:
Cheers
Chris

:thumleft: I will buy the first un drilled one. This is just a trial to see how it works.

PS: Those 3M dual lock tabs are great. Semi transparent so they display better than the white and grips even better.

R695 per set.

yes, working on 2-finger levers, put an order in for 10 sets on/around the 05th May...  :BangHead:

they were a bit backed up, I now HATE to think of how backed-up they are with the #@$!*& Metal-workers strike!

Super crowd they are, but over-committed!

Is it my imagination or has Touratech farkles skyrocketed in price way out of line with the rest?

Here is the manufactures rationale behind the Wunderlich Screen reinforcement brackets:
Screen Reinforcement

The adjustable windscreen is a very clever idea however it only supports on the right side and the left side of the screen is under supported. When riding on bumpy roads or off-road, the original screen can bounce around and clatter loudly. Wunderlich has developed a solution for this. A strong reinforcement bracket is all you need to snugly and securely fasten your windscreen to prevent it from banging around, even on the roughest terrain.

Loosen the Wunderlich reinforcement knob, adjust your screen to the desired position and tighten the reinforcement knob again. Now the windscreen is supported on both sides and the screen movement is kept to a minimum.

The facts:

Additional bracket to stabilize the wind screen.
No restriction of the adjustment radius (the additional bracket moves in the same circular arc).
Elimination of vibration and rattling noises.
The adjustment knob is designed so that it will not fall off, even if left loose.
Powder Coated Steel
Can be easily adjusted via the adjustment knob.
The adjustment mechanism and the windscreen are protected and vibration cracks are prevented.
Fits with original - or aftermarket screens.
Easy mounting.

Were they ever priced reasonably?

Not really, but it seems they have gone nuts compared to the other manufacturers.

If so, why did the same not happen to the other German manufacturers?
