WOW, i see you ordered many things at the same time. Do not get crazy about mounting all that stuff, most important thign is to ride and enjoy the bike. any way your add ons are simple to install on the bike. I see:

Wunderlich vario screen
Touratech side injection mini bars.
Wunderlich frame plastic covers.
Wunderlich radiator guard.
Touratech rear rack (beware of charging it a lot) i did it on mine and i broke the rear tail weak frame. now i have the wunderlich which really creates a kind of subframe.

Plus the headlight grill and some more...

What do you mean you broke off?
Can I carry a big bag on it with my holiday stuff like tent, stove and such? by blackSP

The rear frame on the hp2 ends rigth where the seat ends. The rear fender, plus the plate and rear light are fixed to a small and weak black piece which anchors to the frame. This piece is though only for the rear fender and light. I installed the rear rack from TT as you, and i mounted over it a small givi 30lts top case. well that rear black piece got broken by three places due to the vibrations the top case weight adds there. If you are going to install a big bag, put it right where te seat ends, no further. Use the rack only for light things as the tent, sleeping bag, etc.

Yep, the stock rear rack is rated for a maximum of 5 kg. The Wunderlich extension might boost that a bit, but I've heard stories on ADV of it failing too. Definitely keep the weight on the back low. by space

OK, see what you mean. That looks flimsy, any way to reinforce it? Maybe there's a replacement part or anything available?

The rear subframe is able to handle the Jesse bags. There has to be a way to renforce it. Mabye ask Striking Viking? by Devil Dog

I was think about removing the subframe, glue some small metal strip on it and reinforce the whole thing with some sort of polymer. That should give it a few more kilos? by blackSP

The Jesse bag mounts have a lot of support built into them to transfer the weight forward. They don't actually bolt onto the rear rack at all, as far as I know.

For the rear rack, talk with Woody's Wheel Works. They welded some pretty hefty gussets into mine (formerly rhodeydog's on ADV). Details here: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=375313. I'm sure you could find someone able to do similar work on your side of the Atlantic.

I still don't trust it for more than a Pelican case with my laptop, though. by space

you shall keep the weight on the "blue parts" of the frame, anchoring points of any cases racks on the market only fit on the blue parts. The black rear tail is only for rear fender and lights. the 5kg limit is not true, because what brakes the black piece is not only the weight but the inertias of that weight forcing it up& down on bumps when loaded, specially off road. by alfaris
