Hey There and Questions
Obligatory newcomer post here. So I'm not a rider myself - at least not yet. Reason I'm getting an account is because I'm trying to fix up a 2008 Versys 650.
Basically, my dad's bike was laid down 3 or 4 years ago. Not too much damage, and pretty much all cosmetic.
As a project, I'm going to:
1. Get it running again (new fuel, oil change, tires?)
2. Fix the issues from it being dumped (new fairings, foot pegs, brake handle, ect.)
Now, I'm fairly mechanically inclined, but have never really worked on bikes before, so I need some info on sourcing parts as well as what maintenance I might need to do on it, seeing as it hasn't been started up at all in the years that it was sitting. Luckily, it has been garage stored, and I live in a fairly dry climate, so no visible corrosion is present.
This is going to be sort of a winter project for me, and I'm hoping that come spring (or sooner) I'll be able to get out there!
Nice meeting you all
