After 6 weeks, one of the Malaysian Vendors finally came through and I just received one of these Malaysian made beaks. Unfortunately is is a steaming, ill fitting, POS.
Nothing fits properly, especially the big uneven gaps where the new side pods blend into the stock anteater nose. The beak portion is flimsy, unsupported, and cantilevered off the side pods. Brackets are flimsy, shoddy, and IMHO just not up to long term use and vibration.
To my knowledge there are 3 Vendors and perhaps they are all not like the one I got, but that is it for me and ripped off once, twice shy
A total waste of money (200 USD landed at my door in Thailand) and the Vendor is taking the typical SE Asian attitude of 'very sorry but no returns". Sorry for what - knowingly selling something that is not proper, or ripping me off?
It has pissed me off so much that I am now using this useless POS as a basis to do it right. It is now all cut up, and fibreglassed in place on my bike so that it fits, and the final body work is being done now, so that a proper mould can be made.
I hope to be able to offer the Versys community a proper product that I use on my own bike around Christmas time.
