Thanks for the pics. The place that I am getting the 650R also has a salvage Versys and many used parts. I originally wanted to get a bike that could get 200 miles before the "light" went on, so the 5-gallon Versys tank is good if I go that route.
I was curious, if you add the Versys front fork, do you change the rear shock too? Does the nose of the bike point upward if you don't? I am only 5'5" and sitting on a stock Versys felt really tall to me, but I like the idea of a little more suspension travel.
One more question, if I go the naked route, I wish to use a OEM headlight assembly from an existing motorcycle, so that I know that the lighting will be decent at night. I was thinking in this order: 1) Yamaha MT-03 headlamp (harder to get since it is Euro spec.), 2) new Yamaha V-max headlamp (easier, but harder to find used), 3) Buell dual headlight,or 4) LSL/Speigler urban headlamp (might be the costliest). My question, besides the customized brackets is wiring to the Kawasaki. Is it as simple as splicing?
Can't wait to see how your project gets along. Ciao!
