OM info

does the Versys 650 OM have recommendations on suspension settings ? For example riding 2 up w/weight parameters?

Welcome From Canada

https://www.kawasakiversys.com/forum...ber-intro.html

Both owners and service explain the settings, generally you need to set this up yourself according to weight etc. There is a extremely good tutorial on this forum for that.
In the How To Forum:

Metzler Karoo 3

who has used this rear tire? i have used the original Karoo on a DR 650 and loved its overall perfomance.

this tire is really loud on the pavement, sounds like an army tank is following me!
