Just bought a Versys
I brought home a 2008 650 Versys today, 28000 kmís, I am now the 3rd owner. Havenít got an owners manual, so not sure what needs to be done, owner said something about valve service coming due. He seemed a bit neglectful of chain maintenance which is now done, tire pressure was off, I reverted to 36 front 42 rear. Bike has not been run since October of 2017, which may explain why it started to stutter and miss a bit on my ride home, I figured it might be bad gas so I filled it with mid grade which seemed to solve the issue but I will put some methyl hydrate in the tank for water.
It seems to be a nice responsive machine, any tips or hints of things I need to keep an eye on?
