I do like my Versys after putting 2000 miles on it since buying it (used) in January, but it is not without its faults. Neither am I, for that matter, as I dropped it once on ice (yeah, my bad) back in February. I bent the rear brake pedal during that drop, and used a long wrench after surveying the aftermath to halfway bend it back. Why halfway? I could already see tiny cracks forming…

Anyway, I somehow overlooked in concentrating on the brake pedal that I also managed to crack off the outer 1/3 of my right foot peg. It's just not there. (It may have disappeared in spirited cornering sometime in the interim after being weakened or cracked in the drop, too, but for whatever reason I just noticed this last week.)

Additionally, on the topic of the bike's shortcomings rather than my mishaps, my wife complains mightily about the vibrations she feels through the passenger pegs while riding pillion. I'd also like a little less engine braking and a taller 6th gear so bumping up the front sprocket or dropping the rear a few teeth seems in order as well, especially since I'm about due for adjusting chain slack anyway.

This brings me to the point of this thread, to post a shopping list, partly for self-reflection before I pull the trigger in the next week or two, partly to have others look it over and make sure I'm not missing anything crucial, and partly to serve as a future resource for those who are in the same boat as me: looking for more comfortable front and rear foot pegs and seeking to get a little taller gearing.

I made up my shopping list through mrcycles.com. They're a bit more expensive than cheapcycleparts.com but they have the 2010 Versys parts listed whereas cheapcycleparts does not as of 6/9/10.

Kawasaki 16 tooth rubber damped sprocket: (part # confirmed here: http://www.kawasakiversys.com/forums/showthread.php?t=650&highlight=GOOD+16t+front+sprocket )

SPROCKET-OUTPUT,16T,# for Kawasaki
# 13144-0038
$34.60


All said and done my shopping cart is sitting at $293.10 now, with pricing again from mrcycles.com since they have 2010 Versys parts listed. That breaks down to $109.96 for the Concours 14 footpegs + mounting hardware, $98.84 for the 2010 Versys rear/passenger footpegs + mounting hardware, $49.70 to replace my bent brake pedal, and $34.60 for the rubber-dampened 16 tooth front sprocket.

It might be possible to save a bit of money off the totals above by reusing some of the existing mounting hardware (ie, front peg mounting pins) but I'm planning on playing it safe because the details are not exactly the same. In the example of the front peg mounting pins the 2008 Versys uses a 12x37mm pin while the 2008 Concours 14 uses a 12x42.5mm pin. It's a small difference but if it that's what it takes for things to slide on smoothly versus banging my head because a circlip won't go on in the garage then so be it.

Cheapcycleparts didn't have 2010 Versys parts listed and I figured saving a few bucks on parts would be overwhelmed by paying twice for shipping. When you get a chance I'd definitely like to know what parts can be removed from the list.

A few weeks later and I still haven't ordered any of this. Upon further reflection I think I will do it more on the cheap: New rubber 2010 Versys footpegs for my wife but no new Concours footpegs for me, just a replacement '08 Versys-spec right one. I will go for the sprocket since I need to bring in my bike soon for an oil change and chain slack adjustment anyway, but might only go for a brake lever without the supporting bits as I think that's all that is broken.
