Hello, not quite a Versys owner but an ER6 so don't give me too much grief
I race an ER6 and like to build/tune engines for fun, I've mainly worked on TL1000 engines and raced one for 10 years winning two championships.
I've recently been bitten by the 650 bug and love racing/trackday'ing the little pizza bike.
However I do get my arse kicked down the straights a bit and there's only so much I can make up on the brakes and corner speed......so a spare engine was bought to play with
I've not found much help or knowledge on engine work and after contacting Shane on his slingshot site he pointed me here.
The current engine I'm building will be running 13.5:1 Pistons, Reprofiled Cams, +4mm bored throttle bodies aswell as the usual bolt on stuff
I've changed a few things on my bike at present such as GSXR Radial Forks, 5.5" SRAD Rear wheel for better/cheaper race rubber choice, TL1000 front wheel and yokes.
I have also bought a Versy's swingarm which is yet to fit but will happen this winter.
Here's a quick couple of pics
