I bought a 2013 Model new, and have made a few changes, mounted up some Motowerk crashbars, went with the 16T drive sprocket, higher windshield, and lowering block on swingarm as well as peg lowering block. I am aware that the newer Ninja models went with a frame that reduced the weight I believe like 40#, and am wondering if that transferred onto the Versys as well. Welded up some highway peg mounting brackets on crash bars. But other than that, fill er up with gas and run it. Been trouble free for 12 miles+.
