New versys owner saying hi.

I just became the proud owner of a 2009 blue versys with only 500 miles on it. Usually people worry about too much mileage, but should I be concerned with only 500 miles in 4 ears?

Welcome.

I wouldn't be too concerned. Depends on how it was stored. Tires age - won't be the best, but probably ok. Some seals dry out a bit - but I wouldn't worry about it unless you have a leak etc. I would change the oil and filter, coolant and brake fluid.

Welcome.

Was the bike a demo? Maybe it's owner became ill or had some other major life change or even got a cruiser or sportbike instead.

500 miles is nothing and we've pretty much established that it doesn't seem to matter how it was broken in as some of us have done it the easy way and some of us the more spirited way. The V is very reliable and it's highly unlikely that one's problematic.....there can be very minor nuisances but this forum is great for getting over them.

IMO = NO! Let the good times roll! And change that oil!
