Another new guy...
Hey all, I don't have a Versys but I'm doing a naked ninja 650 project on the cheap and plan to use a Versys rear shock. Since these bikes have many similarities, I figure it wouldn't hurt to be a member here as well.
I recently downsized from an FJR1300 because I wanted something more nimble and also to try a twin cylinder motor. All I've ever owned was inline-4's so when I found a thrashed (but clean titled) ninja for $1900 I jumped on it. It's a fun bike for around town but I'm not thrilled with it for commuting. The highways here suck and I usually travel at 85+... bad combo.
Anyway, with all the repair and maintenance and even upgrades like a power commander, I'm still well under $3k for this project. Time will tell if I stick with it.
