    Hey Folks, Hope the weather is warming up wherever you might be reading this from. Wanted to check in on an older issue that I never quite got sorted. When I come to a stop often I'll look down to see my tach reading a high idle, around 2000, sometimes higher but never above 3k. Anyways, I've...
  2. General Discussions - V1000
    Hi, getting my Versys 1000s 2021 soon but I noticed it has only suspension adjustment in one, right leg. Why is that and if Versys suspension is good enough for 100+kg rider? thanks

    But ill take internet half-assed guesses as well. My goal for this bike is to make a long distance tourer that is capable of tackling gravel roads, dirt roads and possibly double track while still being able to preform well on the street. The bike will normally wear a set of PR3's for...

    Hey! '09 Versys, green, just bought it in North Carolina. Loving this bike - last was a Suzuki SV650S, and I wanted something that was similarly light and fun but with fewer visits to the chiropractor after multiple-hour rides ;) My biggest problem right now is that I'm just not very...
