    An Introduction

    Recently bought a crystal white 2019 RS, and love it...despite it being in the shop for most of the summer, needing a new stater et al. (all of which were on manufacturer back order).

    Added yellow LED lights, and integrated rear light and tail tidy.

    Any recommendations on components of the bike to keep lubricated following a wash, as well preferred products to use?

    And trying to add a Denali sound bomb (split version)...looking for placement recommendations.

    Please let me know your thoughts at your convenience.

    Welcome.
    That's a proper kick in the nuts! To have purchased a new motorcycle and miss out on the summer due to parts being unavailable.
    Unless your washing it after a very long ride. The only part I would possibly lube would be the chain.
    I just use warm water with a mild dish soap, something that wont give me "Dish pan hands".

    The dual yellow bulbs is not a good idea. Your asking for a citation.
    I installed my horn unit in the same place as the original, and the compressor was mounted to the rad.

    Don't use dish soap, as some of the active ingredients in dish soap which are designed to break down grease and oils etc. While they may not harm the paint, they are pretty good at stripping the protective layer of wax. Use a detergent designed for automotive use.

    Did you have to make a bracket to change the orientation of the mounting screw on the left side? and to what screw did you mount the compressor on the right side? On the right side, did you have to remove the faring?

    Its been some time (yrs) since I installed the Denali.
    Left side: I recall using either the stock bracket or whatever was in the box.
    *Edit*: I may even have borrowed a horn bracket from "Cinderella" my old Ninja, as It had duel horns.
    Right Side: It Did require a custom bracket and was installed behind the Rad Finisher.

    The 2019 is different from my 2012,so there's no point for further details.
    If you chose this direction of install. You would have to remove the right-side Rad finisher.
    It appears the Right Side Rad Cowl Inner/Outer removable is not necessary.
    I would also recommend you prime/paint any (uncoated) mounting brackets prior to final install.

    Thanks very much!

    Could you share the source of the manufacturer spec diagram/detail?

    It appears a huge % of the OEM parts are on back order.
    I wish you many yrs of trouble free service from that model.
