False escape

As you know there are some bric published false leaks in V 650, to cover the other hole and maximize space.

After seeing some and seeing that the Versys has some space and tried to see how it went.

Something basic, a PVC pipe with plugs on one end and a clamp screw is the material I used.

I've caught a 30cm tube 90mm colocáislos calentáis tips and plugs one fixed and one screw with glue for pvc, this last I've put a lock by placing a piece of pvc to stop the turn and leave it parked when this a quieter, a little sandpaper, spray paint and placement depends on the hardware you have, you pass some pictures not very good quality, but to give you an idea.

(Como ya sabréis hay publicadas algunas bricos de falsos escapes en las V de 650, para tapar el otro hueco y aprovechar el espacio.

Después de ver algunas y viendo que la VersyS, tiene algo de espacio e probado a ver que tal salía.

Algo básico, un tubo de PVC, unos tapones con uno de sus extremos en rosca y unas abrazaderas, es el material que he empleado.

Yo he cogido un tubo de 30cm por 90mm, calentáis las puntas y colocáislos tapones uno fijo y otro de rosca con pegamento para el pvc, a este ultimo le he puesto una cerradura colocando un trozo de pvc para frenar el giro y cuando la dejéis aparcada este uno más tranquilo, un poco de lija, pintura en spray y la colocación depende de los herrajes que tengáis, os paso unas fotos no de muy buena calidad, pero para que os hagáis una idea.)




Notice that these tubes do not interfere at all because they are in a space that is not used and so I think the materials cost is worth it for the space-strapped.
Greetings.

(Fijaos que estos tubos no estorban para nada porque están en un espacio que no se utiliza y por lo que cuestan los materiales creo que merece la pena para los que andan mal de espacio.
Saludos.)

Exactly. I use a blueprint tube similarly situated to carry my tent poles when touring.
