Done: fully customized K13 ready to roll (PICS)

Finally completed my upgrade to the new K1300GT I bought for myself last month. Here's a list of what I did to it:
  • Rick Mayer custom saddle
  • Fuse panel for easy connections
  • Relocated LoJack installed by previous owner
  • Zumo 550 GPS mount
  • Escort 9500ix radar mount plus audio
  • Screaming banshee horn
  • Clear front signals
  • Audio amplifier with flush mount knob
  • Heat controller for heated gear with flush mount knob and power LED
  • Reflective tape on rear bags and mud guard and rim stripes
  • Electrified Bags connection bag for iphone charger and audio
  • BMW bag liners
  • Lite Blazer LED rear bar
  • Foam grips

Here are some photos:

Haven't ridden on it yet but feels great in the shop. I hope to ride some this weekend.

Not to high jack this post. I have a 2007 K1200GT with Rick Mayer seats. Put 33k miles on them and really like them.

Great work on your 1300 by the way.

Lojack? Do you live near a ghetto?

Don't think there's too big of an underground market for these things.

I assume the plate with the two knobs is your electrics control? Is that something you purchased or something your built? Nice work.

There is no "plate". He simply drilled the flat edge on the left fairing panel and installed a Heated Gear controller and an Audio Amplifier.

The shiny "plate" that you see is just some clear paint protection film, which you can also see on other parts of the panel.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

The chrome like surface threw me at first, but I figured it out.
