Hi guys.

In any case, I want a cover that will fit a 2011 versys that both the top and side hard cases from GIVI (v35s)

Can anyone recommend a cover that isnt going to break the bank? Prefer something from Amazon Prime so I can get it fast.

I've got a cheapo cover from Cycle Gear that fits over my Versys with seahorse cases on it. There's plently of room - I'm pretty sure it would fit over your Givi's. It's the middle size cover, I believe...

Cheers, Jeff

There are several type of covers and the material used depends on the application. You will need something that is: waterproof, heat shielded and lockable.

The heat shield is important to avoid the material met with the exhaust heat, the Versys has the exhaust in a particular location so you might get away without this feature but I would have it just in case.

Since you are going to leave it outside it has to be water proof. Make sure the fabric can resist the weather.

Also since it will be at the reach of people get a cover that can be secured with a cable and a lock. Not only it will not fly away but will not let anybody take it out and mess with your bike.

Something like these:

I use a $20 Walmart cover when I'm on the road.

I got mine here from Riders Discount can't remember the price but it was sweet. Had some photos posted but cleared out all my old photos. I keep my bike outside all year and this cover works great. I have the XL and it cover my bike with a taller windshield,saddlebags and a E-55 topcase. It will cover completly down past the passenger pegs.If you want to cover all the way to the ground go one sie bigger http://www.kawasakiversys.com/forums...ad.php?t=10117
