Inspecting a Versys - new owner
Hello, all. These forums have been fantastic, and providing all kinds of great information. Thanks in advance to all of you.
I am looking at an '08 Versys in the next week or so. It's got only 4500mi on it or so, and it appears to be in relatively good shape from the initial inspection I've given it so far. It has been sitting outdoors (but under a cover) for a few months so it's likely the battery may not start it, but here's hoping.
I'm going to take another look before I buy it. Is there anything specific to the Versys that I need to look out for or inspect before buying it? Any major gotchas? Trouble spots?
I won't be able to put it up on stands and give it a full pre-buy inspection, but if there's anything glaring I need to look out for, I'd sure appreciate it.
Thanks again, in advance. This is one of the most helpful bike-specific forums I've ever seen.
