Hey everyone. Just joined from southern Ontario. Bought my first bike last week. A 07 versys 650. Got it out today for a small ride I'm pretty excited about it lol. I've always driven a Jeep in the summer topless and doorless of course and most motorcycles waved at me lol but now I'm officially part of the club! My boyfriend has an 08 versys. So we will hopefully be out riding a lot. My bike has some scratches on both fairings from previous owner. Any ideas what I could do there to cover them up? Stickers?

Thanks

Jenna!

Welcome, from a few hours down the 401.

For sure slap some stickers on the rashes. LOTS of riders re-badge the Versys, so find something you like and dress it up. Here's a thread with lots of examples:

Thanks for the warm welcome! I will definitely look I to some stickers for the scratches. I think that's the easiest. Here are some pics

G'day Jenna, depends on how deep the scratches are. You may be able to polish them out or a little touch up paint. Or of course stickers if that's what you want to do.

Red and green - great! Now, if you could convince a friend to buy a yellow one you could have a rolling traffic light.

Hope you enjoy your Versys and have many safe miles ahead.
