Another new guy post

Just bought my Red 08 Versys. I've been having a blast on the first 150 miles on it.

Right now I'm looking to buy some mods (lowering kit, mirror extenders, windshield) and had a question:

If I do lower it (front and back) do I really need to install the side stand that Speedy sells and recommends for this procedure or could I live with it?

How big of a difference does an aftermarket windshield make in the highway?

Thanks everyone.

I had an 09 that i took the stock screen and a Givi screen and combined them worked great. Take the stock screen turn upside down drill a couple of holes in both screens and bolt together....

Welcome From Canada

to the forum, lots of good info, as to the stand, some have used a 650 ninja stand, you will need to search that.Lots on Ebay, make sure you have the correct one, the switch assembly changed.
