2016 Versys 650

Hello everyone!
I'm a new member from Tehachapi, Ca. Bought a 2016 Versys 650 ABS 2 months ago. I had the dealership add paniers and handguards as part of the purchase, making it an LT. Shortly after I added a PUIG windscreen(much better than the OEM screen). Last week I bought the Oxford Handgrip heaters, installed them last Sunday and rode with them this morning(well worth it!). Had a small problem getting some super glue underneath the throttle tube making my throttle sticky. Also, the mounting bracket for the heat control didn't fit anywhere on my bike, so I had to do some modification. I took it off today and removed the glue, now works perfect. Just bought a RAM X-grip for my phone and installed today. Next will be the purchase and installment of the cigarette charger so I can charge my phone. I absolutely love the bike and the way it rides. I already have almost 4000 miles on it. Ride On!

......Save yourself about 60 bucks the OEM 12V Outlet off the Vulcan S will work on the Versys 650 as well as the V-1000. You will still need the relay...https://www.kawasaki.com/accessories...tlet/999940541

You will encounter a clearance issue if you use the factory port location for your charging power plug.

The plug alone is not the problem. It's when you plug in your phone charger and turn the handle bars full lock the hand guard will collide with your charger.

Here is a solution that works for me.
