Thumbs up New Member: '08 Versys in Seattle

Hello -- have a 2008 Versys, ~ 30K and running strong (other than a starting issue that I hope to get resolved via this forum). Thanks,

Some 2008's had issues will cracked coil packs. My 2009 had an issue cranking because the idle was set too low. Make sure your idle is set at 1300 rpm once warmed up..
