On board from Charlotte NC

Hey everybody !

Picked up my 2018 Versys 650 ABS LT last week. Started by ordering the Moto Werk's lowering kit. Had the dealer install, including shortening the kick stand. Made a big difference for me. Need to put some miles on to really get the feel of the bike.

Installed rear spools and have a rear wheel stand on order. Wondering if the Snap Jack works with the ABS model since the ABS electrical cable runs along right swing arm.

Is there a shop manual available on this forum?

More later.

OK Second Post ???

I guess I have to make a second post here to achieve full membership. So here goes ...

Riding history:
Yahama DT1 (1969 to 1974)
Yahama MX 250 (1974 to 1979)
Kawasaki Vulcan 800 Cruiser (2002 to 2004)
Honda Magna 750 (2004 to 2010)
Honda ST1300 )2005 to 2010)
Suzuki Bandit 1250 S (2009 to 2015)
Honda GL1800 Goldwing (2015 to 2017)
Kawasaki Versys 650 (Last week to now !)

Sold the Goldwing in favor of a Miata. Planned to take my wife on all the rides of my past. (She won't swing a leg over a motorcycle.) Worked for about 2 trips but way too impractical as a second car. So dropped the Miata in favor of a CX5 and just picked up the 2018 Versys.

Later,
Ernie
