Hello! New to the forum, just bought my first bike about 3 weeks ago. 2008 Versys 650 with 30k miles. I absolutely love it. Iíve seen some guys have switched out the seats and used the motowerks lowering pegs. Being 6í5Ē I think the pegs are a must. I do like the flat seat since I am constantly sliding forward towards the gas tank. Iíve also seen the guys fab the seat mount to raise it but unfortunately I have no shop to do that. Any suggestions??

Welcome From Canada

to the forum. As to the seat, be careful what you ask for,and don't ask about WD40, expect a reply from another mod
