looking for advice, sizes, where to buy, etc

so I'll be getting my 2016 GSX-S 1000 tomorrow (Grey)

I want to get these things:

-Frame sliders (just regular black frame sliders, nothing fancy)
-Licence plate holder / Fender eliminator (anyone find one that quick connects the light for the plate & uses the original flashers?)
-Swingarm spools (what's the size?)
-Small mirrors or bar end mirrors (what's the size of the bar end 7/8"? and the screw holes on top?)
-Tank pad (need a specific size?)
-Disc lock
-Bike stand (front & back)

just looking for tips on where to buy for best price and quickest shipping

thanks!

I bought the Vagabond fender eliminator, it is well made and it lets you keep the stock turn signals and licence light: https://www.gsxs1000.org/forum/vagabo...unt-codes.html

Trex sliders (two screws type)

And for the spools I posted on the size since I had the same question. Can't find it since I'm on my phone but I'm sure it comes up in a search

I got the vagabond fender simply for not having to cut or splice wires! clean look!

Then I got these off ebay, for the price, why not.

Spools
Bikemaster Motorcycle 8mm Rear Swingarm Spool KIT Aluminum Light Weight Suzuki | eBay

Rack
Rear Motorcycle Sports Bike Stand Black Swingarm Stand Lift Auto NEW Bike Shop | eBay

Mirrors
Motorcycle Leaf Black Motorcycle Rearview Mirrors Universal Street Bike 8mm 10mm | eBay

Just missing the sliders, tank pad, & disc lock.

Tank pad & disc lock I might just get at my dealer today, but the sliders I really don`t want to be spending stupid money for something that just bolts in and never moves.

Anyone have a link to cheaper sliders?
