So fellas, what are the little upgrades that all the experienced Versys guys do first to a new bike? Got this 08 as a decent daily commuter. Going to order a key and ignition set since the previous owner lost the key and now the used ignition he found and the cheapo aftermarket fuel cap are keyed different, plus the seat latch key is destroyed, hence the strap over the seat in the pic. Also looking for some middle of the road priced hand guards to keep the wind off my knuckles, so who likes what brands?

Welcome from another '08 owner!

For handguards, I use the PowerMadd guards with ATV mounts so that the levers do not have to move. The downside is that they offer no crash protection whatsoever. I'll see if I can dig up a picture (bike is still snowed in, unfortunately).

I have ZETA XC handguards on my '08 (AND had them on my '09)



- they survived a 20 to 30 mph low-side crash on Mt Graham near Safford, AZ, w/ ONLY scratches, that I fixed w/ tape, electricians and reflective.
