Hi All, picked up my Versys today.
It was crashed last week and the owner walked away and abandoned it. Told a local if he wanted to go get the bike he could have it!
The local sold it to me. 2009 model with just 7000kms on the clock, and in excellent condition...well it was until he hit the tree!
I need a new tank, cowls, and one fork leg is bent.
Planning to rebuild it using secondhand parts, a new tank is $980 here!
Im going to set it up as a dirt road tourer. Planning to fit a 19" spoked front wheel and a 17" spoked rear, and fit a different shock to get a bit more rear wheel travel.
I've actually got Honda XLR250 Cartridge forks and front wheel sitting in my garage, was planning to fit them to my XL6000RMG. They've got 250mm travel which I think would be too much for the Versys considering the ground clearance.
Theres lots of great info on here, I'm looking forward to getting this thing back on the road.
