Seat discomfort / handlebar risers
As with many Versys riders I too had discomfort with my front male member while riding. I considered raising the seat but felt more forward leaning of my torso had a large part to do with it.
I'm 65 years old, 5'11" with 32" inseam at 215#. If there was a measurement for arm length I'd share it but am fairly mid sized. I recently installed 30mm (1.3") risers and I can now feel my rump is more rearward tilted and relief up front. This is because I don't have to "reach" for the bars.
I've not seen the optimum seat solution, as most of the intermediate molded supports are left not touching the frame causing the seat pan to bend, which I don't like.
I'd try the 30mm risers first and see if that helps your seat discomfort.
Also, no cable length issues by this mod.
Happy ridding all...
