Just an intro from me to the forum.

I have A model 650 which seems to be registered in 08, not sure if this is unusual or not....

Hope to get some advice and tips as a member and also hope I can give back when I have something constructive to offer.

Based in the north of ireland and bought my bike needing some(lots) of TLC.

So far it has been a very unpleasant journey and close to selling it off cheap as the problems have been plenty. Turned a corner with it recently and managed to get it starting again. After a short ride I do want to keep it as it is a super bike to ride...

Still running problems to cure and paint work to do, hopefully it will be worth it.......

Here in Canada we got the Versys in '07 (orange, and grey I believe), then the US came in in '08 (red), so an '08 registration makes sense.

Oh - and it WILL be worth it - GREAT bike!

Post away, there is a tremendous wealth of knowledge on this forum, I felt the same way when I bought my 07, today you couldn't pry it out of my hands. So far there is nothing like it out there for me, simple mods like tweaking the TPS, vacuum hose mod, and many more. Things you can do yourself!
