when first came out, hated the rear fender combo but Not a fan of the chopped off look/like to keep OEM'ish. So shortened the fender and repositioned/bonded in the tail light.

I chopped mine using about a foot of one inch angle iron. Cut around 3" off either side on the half and bent the sides around to right angles. There are factory holes in the under tail that I use to drill and mount my bracket.

Used the factory lights by mounting with a course long screw that fits into the factory mounting holes in the arms of the signals. Plate light is straight forward with drilling and bolting as required.

I actualy got the idea from 133bhp for the front fender. As for the Distenzia's, would love to, but the Shinko's are just so cheap and sticky I can't justify paying more than twice the price.

133bhp is sort of a yard stick for what can be done with the Versys.

@133bhp

Can't see your mirror

And quite the urban warrior look on your bike
Very nasty/busyness/"get the f*** out of my way" look !


VERY VERY Nice 133bhp

No, just the Cherry bomb I painted with exhaust paint. More of a powder coat than paint I guess. You apply it in a stages heating cooling and re-applyying. Holds up well though.

Thanks for comments - (lack of mirrors as was on a trackday) but we're not inspiring pfontainejr on the rear end options it seems?
