New Member!

I've just bought myself a 2009 Kawasaki Versys! I must say it is different to what I am used to, I have always been a sports bike rider, and I have just got rid of my GSXR1000K5 and bought this as a commuting/ holidaying bike!

First impressions? I'm pretty happy with the thing!

It does seem to make alot of noise, but I'm assuming this is because I am used to the much smoother Inline4

Anyway, I am here to say Hi! so Hi guys, glad to be part of the gang!

Aleck.

Oh and I suppose I should ask as its fairly urgent! When I bought it, it came without the original side stand attached as it had snapped and currently has a incredibly (scary) weak replacement off of something else...

Does anyone know of any other bikes which side stand will bolt straight onto this, I can't seem to find any Versys 650 side stands near to me for sale!

Thanks.

Aleck.

Not sure it would work, but the 650R ninja and ER6N kawi are the same frame platform. My guess is they have a lower seat height so they may not work. Best bet is to find one for a Versys.

Welcome to the group. Lots to learn here. I came from a heavier bike and really love the handling and mid range power of the V.
