I bought a 2012 Versys 1K a couple of weeks ago, joined a couple of forums but forgot to say hello on here!
I'm a Brit living in Germany, had many bikes over the years but most recently a BMW R1150 GS, so the comparison with the Versys makes sense.
So far I'm very happy with the big ugly...
I have been hearing some noise while slowing down or while I'm driving, its pretty prominent when I speed up and then slow down. Sound much like an airplane landing and hitting the breaks, like an air suctions sound.
It was a slight sound before, but recently i took it out for cool 500km ride...
I just picked up a 2021 Versys 650 LT and I'm trying to decide on what crash bars (engine guards) to buy. Opinions/reviews with multiple pictures would help me decide.
Don't hold back! Tell me the Good, the Bad and the Ugly!
And don't forget the pictures....
Perhaps I'll begin here. I've joined the forum to gauge potential market space. I've been a fan of Kawi small engine bikes for years and years and years, and recently got myself knee deep into the Versys 300. Of course, stock Kawi bikes (small engines at least) are a bit lacking in some...
AC3 Performance Skid Plate, was briefly installed. Its solid and looks better than other brands. This retails for a little over $200.00 shipped from the UK (fleabay).
I'm going a different route with my Versys. I'm also looking for various items and would consider trades:
* Prior Model Versys...
I've been riding for a couple years, just sold my Honda cb300R for something I can use around the island but also go abroad on with a Pillion. I'm looking at purchasing a Kawasaki Versys 650 2016 with 6k miles on the clock! It's up for £4,250 and putting in an offer on Monday for it...
I got some dirt miles in again yesterday. I have some thoughts that may help some guys new to dirt or gravel. Most was winding climbing and descending fire roads nothing to hardcore but the loose gravel was tricky for some of the big bikes with me. The roughest sections had some very...
Hello everyone, greetings from Austria!
- Versys 650, '07
- 24.000 km, well serviced
- needs new tires --> Michelin Road 5
- stock bike without mods --> needs taller windscreen (190 cm / 6'3")
I haven't picked it up from the previous owner yet; will update shortly!
Hope you are all doing well, I recently stumbled upon this awesome website and was reading through most of the articles and post and I was drawn to how much great minds are here; so much creativity hens I decided to join in on the fun.
My name is Sultan and I was born and raised...
Good day to all my fellow Versys/Kawi riders!
I have a 2009 Versys with only 21,000km on it. It was smashed way back in 2009 and stored by the previous owner till I bought it last year with only 10,000km on it. the only issue with it was the front fender mounts were sheared off but no fork...
Bought a V for my first bike, pretty happy so far.
Put a few farkles on it this weekend.
Motowerk mirror extenders
Motowerk Lowering pegs
Motowerk Handlebar extenders
Healtek gear indicator
Painted my rusty headers with some paint I had lying around.
More to come.
