New Versys Owner in Western NY... couple questions!
Hello Everyone --
Happy new versus owner reporting from Rochester, NY! Just grabbed a cobalt blue 2009 with 5,900 miles that had spent most of it's life in a garage for under $3k (good deal I'm thinking). I couldn't be happier. I was one of those guys that started riding just last year with a 250 and have had my eyes opened wide sitting on a 650 now. The bike is amazing: stable, powerful, comfortable... just couldn't be happier.
If any versys pros want to offer up some quick advice, I've got a couple items on the bike I'd like to tackle myself hopefully, rather than pay a dealer tons of money to work on....
1) Very small chips in the paint on the tank (size of a pencil tip... probably from a belt buckle) Any advice on good products for paint patching.
2) Mode and Reset buttons don't work on the dash... lights light up and speedo and tach work just fine, but i can't toggle through trip, mileage, etc...
3) Nasty vibrating noise coming from the tach area. 99% sure its the plastics rumbling up there because when I put a hand on the plastic above the tach, the vibrating noise stops... incredibly annoying at the moment.
4) Already have an OEM kawa rear case, and looking for any reasonably priced saddle bags/cases that won't interfere riding 2-up. Lots of riding 2-up here so can't have ginormous saddle bags that get in the way of legs...
Any advice would be welcomed and appreciated! Can't wait to throw some serious miles on this monster.
