Mileage

Who has the most miles on their Versys ??? After almost 3 years, someone must have "big" miles on one..........

I think they'll go 100K with no problem.

the highest mileage one I'm aware of was IIRC the orange Odessey, which did around 60,000 miles before electrical problems killed it off.

32K miles on my 08. Still running strong, but I just developed the dreaded "cowling buzz". No work done other than routine maintenance.

Maybe we can merge this thread with this one for current update:
http://www.kawasakiversys.com/forums...ighlight=miles



I just rolled over 15,000 Km on 2007. model.
9K of those are mine and 6K from previous owner.
I missed my expected goal of at least 10K a year. Must do better this season.

I have had mine for about 19 months, about 16 months worth of riding though cause it was put away for about 3 months for the winter. I have just over 20,000 miles.


Those who say money can't buy happines haven't bought A VERSYS.

You'll never know because you'll have a different bike before you reach 100K.

Should hit 37,000 this wknd. Got her in August 08 and still love her.

Gotta change out the mechanical seal due to slight coolant leak and have replaced original battery and sprockets and chain (and, of course, numerous tires). Tremendous bang for the $.

Ride To Live, Live To Ride....no, really!
