What accessories do you have and how do you use them?

Post by keightley »

Hello - I just bought a white 2009 Genuine Buddy 125cc. This will be the second one I have owned. I want to accessorize it up. It already has undercarriage LED lighting. I have already decided that I am going to add Kmax Top Case in white, a short Cuppini windscreen, and hidden GPS tracker. I am debating whether or not it would be worth installing the Kmax LED back lighting kit, black cowl protectors, and a black front folding rack or the front wicker basket.

My last genuine buddy I just drove around downtown Salt Lake. I am kind of interested in going on some longer rides to explore Utah a bit so I was thinking that maybe front rack might be better than the wicker basket. Along with this line of thought, I began thinking that getting a roll bag might be a good way to carry items such as a cable U-lock or disc lock, a cover, a few basic tools, and a copy of my title and registration.

So I am wondering. What kind of accessories did you install on your buddy? How do you use these accessories?

I have a medium height windshield. It great for winter rides but I remove it for the other seasons.

On my Buddy 150, I have installed a K-Max top case, Cuppini Windshield, and dead light conversion kit for LED running lights. All three are very useful accessories. I had a front metal basket that came with it, but removed it, didn't like the looks.
