My first 'big' bike!

Hi All,

I recently passed my full test and have gone from my 125cc Huoniao to a 2011 Versys 650. Paid £4300 for a 2011 with just 2000 miles on the clock and tyres that make it look like it's never been round a corner!

I've put another 600 miles on it so far, it's my daily commute and I did take it for a quick run out to the coast (about 2 hours away) with a couple of biker buddies. The Versys held it's own against a VFR800 and Tiger800.

I do have a question, I've been trying to fit the PLXR450 rack this evening, I've mounted all the brackets and monorack but the rack itself really does not want to fit the footpeg mounts, it appears to be 1/4 inch out. I thought the rack was supposed to be quick to click on and off with the quarter turn bolts but if I get this on, it's unlikely to ever come off again! Is this normal or have a bought a bent rack or, more likely, fitted something wrong?

Cheers,

Danny.
