from Friesland

Hello, I am Peter and ride a Kawasaki ZX14. I got my friend for 9 years and because my rides are mostly in the Germany (Eifel, Sauerland etc) I am thinking to sell mine and buy a Versys 650 SE. Less speed and more joy.
Tomorrow I will take a test ride on the Versys.
Let's see

Welcome Peter! You can download the service manual from this site in the tech section. Hope you post some pictures of your new bike and beautiful country. I find the handling of the 650 improves a lot with suspension adjustment if you are above or below the default setup weight of 150lb/68kg. Just something to keep in mind when test riding. Preload and rebound are adjustable at both ends.

Got myself a Versys today!

Just made a test run on the 2107 650 Versys and made a deal. Just a fortnight away from my new Kawasaki Versys 650 SE Tourer! Love this bike!

From the time of your first post it is 48 hours plus about 2 hours for scan time, then you should have full access. Try and keep all your specifics in this thread ( I moved the last post to this thread), this is your thread, starting a new one many times causes confusion and you get

, which is fine if you need that kind of support
Anyway the Versys seems to grow on you, I am on my second one, first the 07 now the 2015. Anytime you need help ask. All the members here help each other, I don't know of any site that is equal to this one.
