Hi everybody,

Hi everybody,

Long time rider but I just got a 2018 Versys 300 a few months ago.
I also have a 2008 Ninja 250 racebike and did a year of racing with the AFM. I think racing is too stressful and dangerous but I hope to do more trackdays. Most recently I had a Honda CBR600RR which was super fun on the track but kinda less comfortable than I like around town, so I recently sold it.
I've done a few mods to my Versys and wanted to share them, maybe tomorrow I'll take a few pictures.
I replaced the front sprocket with a 16 tooth and don't seem to get any error codes, but it's only been a few hundred miles. (Mine doesn't have ABS so I simply modified the ABS speed encoder ring to have fewer holes.) I like tall gearing and am considering replacing the rear 46 with a 45 because I have one laying around.
I'm also interested in making the suspension a bit softer and want to see if others have done such modifications.

Karen

I'm supposed to post a second time.
Here's a picture of my bike.
Note the Pelican cases, the frame was originally built for my CBR600RR. Now it clearly make the rear seat unusable.
Also note the rubber grip pads on the tank, I love holding onto the tank when it turns. I guess I like moving around like I'm on the track. :-)

Welcome Karen. You've had some great bikes listed in your signature.
Enjoy your Versys.

It's been swell, but the swelling has gone down.

Welcome Karen, from San Antonio, Texas. A Yamaha RD350, huh? Very nice, indeed.
