  1. Technical Discussion - V-650
    Hi all, Owned my V650 now for about 3 weeks and bought it after months of research, being that as a first bike its suppose to be comfortable and smooth to ride. I love how it looks and really enjoy riding it but since owning it, it's felt loud with high vibrations. I used to drive a V-twin...

    When I installed the givi tn-422 engine guards on my 2012 Versys 650, seems like the annoying buzzing sound got better. The front right motor mount seemed to be quite loose when I removed it.

    Hi All. I've read at least one thread about fixing the side fairings so that they are flush with the headlight housing. One guy did it trying to eliminate vibration noise. I came at from the looks direction--it just didn't look right crooked. The day I picked up my 2009 Versys from the...
  7. Technical Discussion / How To Posts/ All Models
    This is just a FAQ reference for this issue. It appears to be one of the most common Versys problems. In short, it seems to happen eventually with almost all Versys models. Kawasaki put out a fix in June of 2007 which involved placing some foam dampers on the affected parts. Newer bikes...
