Wire Wheels, Akrapovic exhaust & Go Pro

I purchased this 2011 bike new in 2013 as left over stock. Only has 4k miles as I have other bikes I ride as well. Just back from a week in the Apalachia's riding around Marion, VA. Some of the best mountain roads have traveled yet. Did a good 15-20 miles on fire roads as well. 100% recommend Woody's for the wire wheels if going to a 19" front.

Shazaam! That is the best looking Versys I've ever seen - in my humble opinion, of course. Extremely nice!

Does look like Yoshi exhaust doesn't it. We must have the same vision problem.

Fairly significant, a tad slower in the corners but I prefer it. Certainly better on fire and campground roads. And flattens the saddle postion for me. I always felt I was sliding forward with 'my boys' up against the tank.

Amazing how changing the wheels makes the bike look so much different!

Love the rims but something is just not quite right in the side view. Maybe the front fender needs to go up another inch or two?

Any ballpark estimate for how much wire wheels would cost and where to get them? That looks so awesome, I might consider it.

I went and looked it up

WoodysWheelWorks


By the time I put all of my options in, they were about $1,700 for the set. I don't think that included tires.
