Can someone tell me what function the empthy bracket is for on the starboard side under the tank. Having never had the pleasure of seeing another live V, I have no idea. I have noted pics of V's withthe same non occupied bracket.

(see area highlighted in yellow at top of pic)

Are you suggesting that the V is a Boat?

RHS for land vehicles.

I have ABS on my Versys, and there is a bracket further forward and up hidden by the side faring to hold the ABS hard lines.

I think that is a custom bracket someone has put there for something to attach too.

I believe it is a fairing mount for the Ninja 650 or Er6n which shared the frames with the Versys for awile. I hung a grenade pin from mine.

I just used the Gorilla Glue Epoxy worked like a charm..

Thanks for reminding me, I need to mount my BadBoy.
Its seems to be a thing with me. Not much room under the plastics on the FJR. So a buddy of mine that is a machinist made a bracket for me...

That is a mounting point for the metal brake hoses, when ABS is fitted. :)

See attached extract of page page 17-30 of the 2007-9 workshop manual :thumb:

Gigitt, sorry for using old boat references. And no, I do not thnk my wonderful V is a boat. I'll make sure to use LHS and RHS references in the future, and quit calling the bars the steering wheel.

I thought everyone knew that THAT is one of the 'hardpoints' for mounting up an AIM9 Sidewinder....

:nono:

... I hung a grenade pin from mine....
They were out of AIM9s when Joe did his....

:cool:

That's where the fetzer valve would go if you had one, thank god it's all ball bearings these days.
