New to the Versys in KS

Hello all. I bought my 08 Versys a month or so ago, from a guy who lives nearby. I originally wanted a cruiser, but the deal was so good, and the reviews were great, so I pulled the trigger. I have only one regret about it. It has a TB Slip On, a Juice Box, and it backfires a bit. The ways that I have treated this, (plugging the PAIR valve hose with a marble, and configuring the Juice Box) I got from this site. Every time I have a question about the Versys, this is the place I come to. Even though I still have backfire problems, The bike is more than I expected it would be.

Watch the FOR SALE section, or put an ad in the WANTED section.
