I've got just under 5,000 miles on my Versys now and it runs like hell. I put new Dunlop Roadsmart Sport Touring tires on it at 4,500 miles. The stock back tire was shot but the front still had some tread on it. I put about 200 miles on it today mostly highway at 75 to 80 mph. My only gripe about the bike is the ruff shifting in 1st and 2nd gear. I've had Yamahas all my life and this is my first Kawasaki. It is by far the worst shifting motorcycle I've ever owned. In 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th no problem, but 1st and 2nd drive me nuts. Are all the Versys like this or just mine. I've adjusted the clutch play on the handlebars a couple of times now but it doesn't make any difference. The bike has been like this since I bought it. I'm use to smooth shifting motorcycles.
