Hello everyone. This weekend I traded in my old 2009 Versys 650 towards a mothers day present for my wife. Lots of farkles are currently enroute to our home. LOL Of course my wife being all of 4'11" tall Ill have to lower it a touch. There doesn't seem to be a lot of foam to work with in the seat for reducing the seat height though. I removed the SWMotect plate and givi topcase to put on her bike. I have lowering links from T-rex coming as well as their adjustable side stand. Im not big on lowering bikes but not much of a choice when you're a shorty. Shes had several bike previously, I built her a nice SV650S with GSXR suspension parts that she loved but we sold it when we moved.

Hi Mike.

I am interested in adding these to my bike as well. I know it may not matter but when I clicked the link for the lights it said that the fitment is not for the 2022 Versys 300x. Just curious if you have had any issues and why it would say it would not fit the bike.

Thanks for any info!!

It鈥檚 a standard 1157 base bulb. It literally fits 1000s of different vehicles but probably not OEM which we already know since the OEM is not an LED.

Excellent thank you for your quick response!!

Mike, It's a 1157 bulb (rear tail light & brighter stop light) You can just edit your comment above to reduce any confusion. Great find by the way with the blinking stop light feature. I'm going to order it now. The LED I have has been working great but without the blinking feature. I'm all for safety - and with this bulb more safety. Thanks for sharing.

I changed the dog bones and had the seat redesigned with multiple layers of foam and a higher quality covering, both together lowering the rear more than two inches, I am 5 7. I am a late starter, or returner, only riding a Honda wave around Phuket for last 15 years . I am 鈥檕nly鈥 76, was 72 four years ago when buying the 300X, wanted something I could lift back up after dropping it (which I have done several times) when exploring some of Thailands back roads. It has been great, 61,000kms later after riding the length and breadth of Thailand it was a great choice, but with reservations a single cylinder with lower revs and low down torque, ie RE Himalayan might have been easier to handle in those small tight lumpy corners, and negotiating the rocky farmers tracks.

Found some yellow aux lights I like. They put out a good beam but to be honest they are mostly for visibility when commuting and they accel at that. They are Amazon cheapies but if they last great. If not I鈥檓 not out much $$$. What I like most is how small and light weight they are.
