The power commander (greatly) helped mitigate the fueling issues of the mk-3 versys exasperated by an aftermarket exhaust. It is now better than stock and seems to be a happy motor down to 2.5k rpms.

These mods DID put a little more grunt to the V. That being said, in no way did the mods turned it into a liter bike. It did however lighten the bike up, give it a bit more power, a great exhaust note, and totally fixed the touchy throttle.

I’m not an expert in ECUs and re-flashing, but for the extra money I have the bike that I was looking for. To each their own, but these mods make me want to ride the V even more than I already did. 14k miles in 2.5 years, and not letting up. Spend money on the mods that make you want to ride more, just my $0.02.

For a bit more you are in the realm of Versys 1000, Tracer 900, or my favorite, The Triumph Tiger Sport.

There have always been people looking for the Holy Graal on their bikes... But I've neve seen anyone achieve it.

We joined this forum mainly because of the Versys ( original was 650, the the 1000, now the 300), we try and share knowledge, if you wish to debate ECU reflash why not start a new thread, Pro and cons Reflash/ Power Commander alternative, FYI this isn't that thread!!

This isn't a debate, each person is entitled to their opinion, any further comments debating whether this is $$$$ , feasible, stupid or as a owner of a Versys 650 that should have purchased a V1000, now that the title is changed, I expect no more negative comments or debates on this.
5 minutes after posting, someone else decided to give a opinion



So if there are any owners of a MK-3 650 Versys around Tampa Florida and wish to compare the ride of stock, PM Steve.
