So my little Versys had her 600 mile coming of age party yesterday... I was a little bummed. My little darling is growing up so quickly. It seems like yesterday she had 0 miles on her. Before I know it she'll have 1000 miles on her and be out there, reving as high as she pleases, staying out all night, etc. At least I'll always know where she is
Anyways, I'm taking it to the dealer in the morning; same one who so excellently covered me for the shifter warranty repair.
But I wanted to just toss this out here tonight in case there is anything I should ask about in terms of unusual wear, or anything I should know, etc.
One thing is, I plan to put frame sliders on, since they came free with my race stands... should I ask about the possible issue with the engine mount tabs that is discussed here
? Should I think about putting washers to shim the gap on both sides if there is one? Or should I not worry about it unless it actually does start to crack?
Also, because of that possible issue, is a bad idea to even put the frame sliders on, i.e. will they break the tabs if the bike ever falls on the frame sliders?
Lastly, I plan to put the spools on the swingarm and leave them on, just because it will be nice to basically use the rear stand without having to put them on... any reason I shouldn't?
