Hey everybody. I am considering purchasing a 2011 Versys and I have been doing some research the last couple of days. It would be my 8th street bike and I have battled repeatedly between cruisers and sportier bikes. Last bike was a Triumph Sprint ST and I loved it but it was heavy for a daily driver and not real nimble. I sold it for financial reasons and now want to pay cash for a bike but I want it to be the right bike. Most of my questions have been answered but one thing I was wondering about is changing the plastics on the bike to change the color from the dark red to black. Are there any good sources for plastics because I haven't found any yet? Thanks

Regarding the plastics, some forum members have had god results painting their plastics, and hopefully will reply to your questions.

I've found a good source for OEM parts to be https://www.kawasakiversys.com/forum...er-forums.html parts shark - they aren't the fastest shipper but their prices are, in my experience, less than other suppliers. There is also - both good sources. Good luck and enjoy a great bike. It isn't perfect but it comes pretty darned close.

Plastics

Thanks for the welcomes, advice, and links. I'll probably take them off and paint them over the winter.
