After some measuring I figured the second generation ('08-'13") KLR650 would fit my Versys.
I was wanting a larger foot but wasn't crazy about the options I had seen.

Perfect fit and I'm very pleased.

Just make sure you re-use versys's spring instead of the klr's.

Stand & Bike look great not to mention the GarageMahal, nice to see you haven't forgotten the V with all your other toys!

Best,

Sam

Hey Sam great to hear from you.

Over the years I've had several bikes and can honestly say I've enjoyed the Versys more than any other!
Simply a great bike.

Take care & ride safe,
Dan

Regarding sidestands:

IF you put a larger front tire on (Metzler Tourance 130/80x17 for instance as I and many others have), the stock stand will work, and be TOO short in reality - but I'm pretty sure will be the correct length IF you've lowered your bike.

That set-up has your bike leaning left quite a bit more than stock.

KLR side stand.

Also fitted a KLR 650 side stand. I fitted a speedies lowering block so i shortened my side stand. I simply cut the foot of at the weld, cut 1 inch of the stand and welded the plate back on. It looks original and is a far better, more stable stand than the Versys. You need to use the "KLR SPRING" not the Versys spring. The spring mount on the KLR stand is in a different spot. :thumb::thumb:
