Hi guys, just got my new versys and have a few questions.
Hi guys……Fernando here reporting for the first time……
Amazing forum, great people……..
I just bought my brand new 09 Versys, and honestly, I couldn’t be happier, my last bike was a cruiser (a work horse, Yamaha vstar, great bike) but this bike is just too much fun, it is not a hassle at all….well you guys already know……I’m just so impressed by this bike.
Need your advise on breaking in this baby.
I am close to 200 miles on it (planning on changing oil at 200) I’ve heard NOT to go synthetic right away, why?
What oil should I get now since I am planning on doing the next one at 600 (so it’s 200 and 600)
Should I go with normal auto oil? (Castrol or valvoline 10-40) or can I go synthetic now, if so, does it have to be motorcycle synt or auto synt.
I use to run Mobil one ext performance 15-50 on my V star with out any issues (changed it every 3500 miles) very smooth clutch.
Right now I am not doing more than 5000 revs ( I would keep it under 4k but can't on the freeway)
Thanks guys, and by the way, how do I sign up to the west cost rally? Hopefully I can take time off from work to make it.
