If you had only ONE chance to make all the adjustments...
...what would you do?
I will be coming back to the states for Christmas, and have put a deposit down to get the first 2009 that arrives at the dealership where my family lives in NC. So basically, when I get "home" for a week, my new Versys will be waiting on me - a 2009, only 2 months old, and not a single mile on it! Here's the catch. I will be home for only ONE week, so no time to test it out, work out the bugs and figure out what I would like to change. This means I have to order all of the things necessary ahead of time and make all the changes before I ship her out!
Soooo...I would like to take advantage of all the valuable information and experiences here. What would be the basic things that you would change, add, subtract or adjust on your Versys if you had to do it all in only one week? This would include making adjustments to things that don't work so well such as a new seat, dropping 9lbs of weight with a new slip-on, changing out the windshield for something with more protection, adjusting minor issues that could turn into bigger problems or pre-adjusting things that tend to break for other owners, etc...
Let's see if we can't come up with a good list of NECESSARY adjustments, changes and modifications. I'd like to stay away from the extra crap like navigation, custom paint jobs and coffee cup holders...haha
I'll start with what I KNOW will be changed:
1. Original seat to Corbin seat
2. Stock windshield to custom wider/taller windshield
3. Shorter bar-ends (any advice on how/where?)
4. Bike cover and kickstand plate
5. Luggage racking and hard-cases (any advice on the best options?)
6. PIAA lighting
