Question

Tapped hole under passenger footpegs? You mean the tab on swingarm for bobbins to use a rear lift?

Interestingly only "Embarrassing question.." shows up for this thread in the Recent Discussions Summary, making me think perhaps it had something to do with adult diapers.

If you're talking about the mounting holes for swingarm spools, the V650 takes a 10mm swingarm spool.

Are you sure? My ninja spools were 10mm and didn't fit the versys gen3. I'm pretty sure the gen3 has 8mm. But I don't know about 2011...

M10 (10mm) x 1.25 for 2007-2014... M10 x 1.50 will not fit.

M8 x 1.25 for 2015+

Embarrassing question -- Can't find one that fits -- Are you sure you're on the right forum?

Unmitigated risk aversion is the new Puritanism; complete with witch hunts funny outfits and humorless preachers thundering doom. The Deity is Safety; Satan is a Lawyer; but the object is the same: to suck the life out of life and tell you how to live it.

I am a pharmacist here in AZ. One time a news reporter came in to my store and said: "What is the biggest selling product you carry?"
I said "depends."
He said "depends on what"
"I said no; Depends."

Yes we are headed there some day.

invader is RIGHT!

IF you don't have spools you can just use a bolt in there for awhile - I did on my '15 while awaiting shipment.
