Off of the Yamaha Motors site directly, the accessories are posted along with pricing. Two different windshield options are there as well. Here's a link firstly:

Yamaha SCR950 Accessory List

I really like all of the brass trim options. I think it'll really give this bike quite the retro feel. The skid plate is definitely another thing I'll be adding just for the extra protection and well.. It does look really nice. Maybe get it brass plated as well ?



What accessories are you guys planning on going for ? Possibly the exposed drive pulley kit ?

Basically all the protection parts; rear axle covers, fork cap covers, front axle covers, this isn't on their site so I'll have to find aftermarket sliders.

Saddle bag mount for me since I plan to go for long ride to random locations and frequent trips to the cottage, so even on those regular trips to the cottage it will help in carrying some small things don't usually need to carry much when I go up.

The rigid mount saddle bags actually don't look too bad. Not too sure how much you'll really be able to fit in them for the cottage trips but I think it'll be great for the long rides.

The sliders will definitely have to hit the aftermarket for unfortunately

Those saddle bags won't fit much of anything because they're so narrow on the sides. It's best to go aftermarket for those but you can go to Yamaha for the rack.

I often don't see people carrying around too much, usually it's just small stuff, for some people it's a laptop and things to go with it, or whatever else someone would carry around with them.

You don't really need a lot of cargo space unless you plan to go touring on your scr950 so that flat pack may be enough. Or a duffel bag strapped down by cords.

Just wear a backpack guys... Cheaper and you can easily take it with you once the bike is parked so your valuables are safe.
Would like to get a set of sliders.

Why won't companies sell a fender eliminator kit with their bikes? People are going to do it anyways so they may as well offer one and profit from it.

Respecting the balance of the market...

Just kidding, I have no idea, it seems like a smart idea for the manufacturer to come out with those options straight from the beginning as it's typically one of the first things people do

It's not exactly illegal either if they come out with a fender eliminator that has rear signal lights and dealers can easily install it before the customer picks up their bike.

Once you have everything required for safety, you're good to go. It would make life much easier if they would just offer it. But it would probably be 3 times the price of aftermarket.

Even if it's just enough that throws it into the illegal category it's going to be rare that a cop bothers you for it and if they do, for most folks it's a warning the first time. Just have to be aware of who's around you and where you're going. Some people get unlucky and get caught during a time police have a biker biltz.

That's never fun. But it's true, bikes like these don't get hassled too often, once you're not riding like a d-bag.

The worst part is when something is sold from the manufacturer and you need to warranty a part, and the part is made by someone else, and it turns into a long tedious process for no reason...

I think that depends on your dealership. Some of them are great with getting you the right part in short order and then there are those who drags their feet.
