Shouldn't there be separate forums for the different models?

I suggest separate forums for the different models. Probably broken down by gen1, gen2, gen3, and 650 and 1000 models.

When researching or discussing, I often come across what at first appears to be the answer, but then find out it's for a completely different bike.

The 650s are not that different. The posts just need to be more specific. Plus,who is going to spend the time separating them?

The old posts would not be separated, but going forward they would be separated.

Do you mean the 650s aren't that different from each other, or aren't that different from the 1000s?

I am a new gen3 650 owner. I've been researching tons of different mods, maintenance, etc. So far everything has been different on this model vs the older models.

I'm saying the 650s are not that different from each other. Mostly cosmetic, with some changes in vibration damping.

If they were separated, you might not read invaders posts solving technical issues that could apply to your bike as well. Things that aren't in the service manual like lubing the shift linkage at the footpeg.

The mods would have to be diligent in moving threads to their proper places, and it would separate the community somewhat.

That is what I have observed on other forums that separate bikes by generation.

I agree with this.. There was talk of having a separate v1000 space, but I really see no reason to separate the 650's.

Yeah, One big happy 'V' Family , Been my experience here that if you wanna know something, just ask, you will get an answer. I feel confident to say that there is nothing about the Versys platform this forum doesn't know

Hell, unless specific part numbers are being called out, there really ain't than much reason to separate most of what we discuss. For the most part, it's all pretty generic to most bikes. When some topic is specific, I think a nod to the displacement/generation in the subject would be sufficient.

Being too 'organized' can take the fun out of things. I don't fold my socks either.

In some ways it would help with organization/searching, but I do like the one big community approach. Just because things may be different doesn't mean the guys on gen 1/2's wont be able to help the new gen3 owners.

It does make it a lot of work to read through all the stickies trying to find specific answers, and asking occasionally gets you a "there has been tons of threads on this already, go search".
