Hello from Kawigirl08

I've never been on a forum before, a friend suggested I check this one out. I have an 08 Versys. It seemed a bit tall at first (even with lowered seat) but I've gotten quite used to it now. I'm Hoping this is a good place to meet other Versys owners and learn more about my bike.

Hello Welcome to the site. You will find a ton of information on your motorcycle here. If you have any questions Just post them up and some one will probably have an answer for you. Also Most things related to the versys can be found with a quick search with the search feature. One of my favorite tools since I bought my bike in Aug. I now have put over 1100 miles on it since

For lowering your motorcycle. have you seen the rear suspension lowering block with this and raising the forks in the triples you could lower your bike even more.

Welcome to the forum! Lots of great info to search here, as well as helpful and friendly owners. You have to post twice in this area before you can post to other sections, so post up a pic of your bike and tell us a little more about it; miles, where you got it, why you chose it, etc.

Welcome. You can download the factory service manual (in PDF format here....). Forums like this are a great source of information IMO and were a big help to me in picking farkles (engine crash bars, mirrors, GPS mount, luggage, etc.) for the bike and avoiding common pitfalls.
