I have had my Versys for about six months now and totally love it! Recently i have noticed a strange noise which sounds like it is coming from under the fuel tank. It happens when the bike is just sitting without running or even having the key in. It's intermittant and lasts for about 4-5 seconds at a time. The best way i can describe it is when you turn the ignition on and it makes that whirring noise before you start it, it kinda sounds like a weaker and whinier version of that almost like it's straining to do that all on it's own...... Just read that back to myself and it sounds like my bike just wants to start itself and go for a ride. Any ideas anyone?
On another topic i got one of those gel seat pads with the sheep wool covering. They are ok but they lift you in the seat by about an inch which is good for cruising and touring but when you want to do some tricky fast cornering they really do hinder you. Luckily they are only held on with velcro so are easy to remove, but for the price i think i should have just saved up a bit longer and got a modified seat made.
