Arrow New Member w/Custom ER6n

Hello All....

New member here... I have a custom ER6n adventure bike. Joined to possibly swap parts with some of you Versys guys.

As soon as I have a couple of post under my belt I'll post in the "For Sale" section. Looking for a Versys front end.

In the meantime... Here is my bike.

That is pretty cool. If you were looking for a versys front end is there a reason you bought a ER6N instead of a versys? Either way neat bike. keep posting your progress

Well the project had already been started when I bought the bike.... I'm not a huge fan of the Versys head light (it's my personal preference so please don't take offense) and was looking for an Adventure Bike when I ran across this.... It already had the KLR front end on there which works just fine but I prefer USD forks so that's why I'm looking for a Versys front end.... I want the bike to appear as though the factory made it when I'm finished.... At least that's the plan.... I had a Ninja 650 before so I was already familiar with the platform... It should make a perfect ADV bike. I've only put a couple of hundred miles on it since taking delivery and so far it's been a blast....

Well, there are 3 different Versys headlights to choose from. Don't like autofocus them?

Out of the 3 the new 2015 twin headlight setup is, IMHO, the best looking but at the end of the day I really like having something no one else has. When I roll up on my custom ER6 with a 21'' front wheel and knobbies other guys are like .... Especially after I get my wolfman luggage on there.

If I went to the Versys forks I would drop down to a 19'' front wheel.
BUT....
I've been tweaking the front end so it now turns well and after a bar change is very comfortable. I may just go with some heavier springs and leave it. I just bought a TW200 front fender bracket and am gonna mock up a blue 2014 TW front fender on there. If that looks good I'm leaving it alone.
