What need be re-torqued?

Green 09 versys now with 2200 miles. Seems as if there is a little more vibration at some speeds in some gears. Bike runs better overall, and sounds somewhat different than when few miles on it.

What should I be checking torque wise to ensure the bolts are all tight to spec?
Like engine mount bolts and ???

Any info will help. This may be posted somewhere but my search has only brought up 2. Engine bolts 32 ft/lbs, and head 12 ft lbs.

You might want to check the engine mount bolts. Had one loosen up on me, and I noticed a vibration that wasn't originally there. Tightened it up, and it went away.

Are the bolts accessible without removing any "plastic" covers?

Have you downloaded the service manual yet? All the info you seek is in there. It can be found as a sticky in the technical forum, I believe.

The front ones are a little tight. You might have to remove one cover screw to push it aside to get at the bolt.
