New guy from Ontario

Hello to All
New to this forum, and not quite yet a Versys owner. Hope to be soon

Looking to purchase a used Versys 650. Wondering what I should be looking for. Have searched and seen posts about frame issues near front engine mount on first generation, as well as left mirrors coming loose

Looks like many have installed thermo bob kit.

Stator issues seem to be ongoing problem

What else should I keep an eye open for on these bikes?
Probably looking for a first or second generation. Have been riding for a lot of years, but not familiar with these bikes at all
Figured I would ask those with real life experience

Thanks in advance
Steve

I am right down the road in Guelph. Work in Waterloo. Perhaps send me a pm. Would be interested in speaking with you.
Thanks.

Welcome from Ottawa! My '08 is holding up well. Maybe I'm just lucky, but no major issues so far, and I don't see myself replacing it anytime soon. I did replace the mirrors with Aprilla's, but only because they provided a better field of vision around my shoulders.
