That looks like a very nice mount. How did you do it?

I am a machinist and made a manual milling machine. Material POM plastic.

I was hoping for an easier way or maybe some hacking of a bracket. The results look quite nice, maybe you should start a side business. 🙂

3d printing could be an option.

Which lithium battery? Dealer told me that if I opt to install a different than oem battery in case of an electrical fail then they won't refund, because lithium battery would void the warranty...

Can someone please explain to me if I would need a chain guide for road use only? 

I'm not entirely sure about the role of this item... Never had it before.

No.... Nope is a short answer; but its true. Trust on that. All essential items are already on the bike.

Sure, it's your own responsibility. It's why Honda change to a lithium battery for the Africa and BWM prupose it for few models as an option.

Is it only me that considering ditching a brand new battery for a lithium one is not worth the hassle and the money... You could use that money to get a titanium exhaust and lose the same weight. 

On a brand new bike I wouldn't bother but this is me 😎

No offence intended, good luck in finding the battery you want and let us know what the weight saving is. ☺️😊

I always had a chain guide in my bikes. For road use you don't need it, but for off road riding it's useful. I broke a chain guide twice. Some time ago when riding my DR650 a piece of wood, short stick got between drive chain and a chain guide. The chain guide prevented the stick from getting  between  drive chain and a rear sprocket. If it would happen, probably the drive chain would brake. Second role of chain guide is to help drive chain to get properly on rear sprocket while there is sometimes biger slack of the chain and it moves up and down while you ride on bumpy off road track.
