I saw the farkles Edd added to his Bike and got hold of JABO. Collected orange spot covers and radiator guards today. Fitting is very easy. These items are beautifully made and the care and packaging are signs of someone with an eye for detail and an excellent product. Cannot wait for the bash plate to be available for my BIKE.

Just a note. I've heard that some  radiator guards could void your Warranty with BMW. I would phone them to make sure if it was me.

It is subject to the dealer.
Some dealers encourage using the radiator covers, others don't.
Some will even sell it and will honor the warranty.

I rode the bike for 2 weeks and watched the temperature range at specific places. No difference since fitting so happy that airflow is not diminished in any noticeable degree.

I have been using the same radiator guards for the last 3 years and have never experienced any heat issues. 
BMW centurion even moved them over to my new bike when I traded up.

Unfortunately it's not up to the dealer but bmw sa.

Sandton motorad got confirmation for me from bmw sa that the brand they fitted is ok and won't void warranty

Correct Bmw Sa do give the official line, but most dealers follow their own heads.
Chat to the dealer as you did is my recommendation.

Bavarian as mentioned above don't have issues but others do like Donford.

I have the 2017 Trophy Edition and fitted Hyperpro progressive springs front and back.

To me and my limited ability, the springs have made a massive difference to the ride. Before I found the bike quite nervous on long stretches of corrugations for instance but now I barely feel them. The suspension feels more plush and a bit softer up top. I like.

I also fitted the Hyperpro steering damper that has 22 settings at the click of a wheel, was still experimenting with the settings before I got my arm in a sling, but was already on a harder setting than the stock one. I cannot say I can feel the difference when riding though.

The two springs were not badly priced, the damper broke the bank  :biggrin:.

 Fitted some very red crash bar plugs to a very dirty bike.

Yes it was 3D printed.
Can always print a few extra sets for some dogs.
