I am mostly doing it because I have grown to dislike the front headlight/fairing assembly. I know it decreases the value, though I am keeping all the original parts for when I do sell. My needs/wants have changed and as such, I only ride in town these days, no more adventures for me. Kids will do that to you. There was someone a few years ago that sold their Versys Fighter, I thought it looked pretty stock. Not bastardized.
Yeah that's a 650r tank. Also the coolant tank is under the seat. If I can find the photo I will post it. Just want to mention again that that's not my bike. I did find a perfect 650r tank. Just waiting on the right headlight. The one in the photo is from a sv650. If you use a 650r tank, the seat needs trimmed a little. No big deal though
