Welcome! Love the name! I have same bike. This is a good place to learn more about the machine. Where are you from?

Welcome to the forum!

Many good memories on my Z1, KZ900, KZ1000, KX1000 LTD, and finally my GPZ1100

I think you'll find good times on your Versys!

Welcome.

I don't know how you are going to resist the new 900RS (KZ tribute bike).

Second new member post

I've learned one thing really quick. Do not my any electrical parts that are not Kawasaki OEM. I purchased a signal indicator for my 2016 Versys 650 ABS. When I opened the package the cheap plastic cover of the indicator had fallen off, and was only double taped on. Plus the wanted you to plug it into a connector under the seat. The Kawasaki indicator was made well and plugged in right behind the lights next to the relay.

Welcome from Canada

to the forum. You are correct on some electrical things, however I can tell you that I purchased 5 of the 40 amp relays C/W socket and harness, single pole double throw, for those that don't know, that means a single pole with 1 normally closed contact and one normally open contact, I got all 5 for less than the Omron OEM relay used for the auxiliary circuit, supplied by Kawasaki, which happens to be a normally open single pole only. I am a retired professional , working in the electrical / electronic service industry, sharing my knowledge cost me nothing, since I am retired, just my time. FYI when possible I prefer to post some answers rather than send PM were this knowledge isn't shared with others, hope I can continue until dementia sets in.
