Of course for a 2012, if that makes any difference.

Pics would be great, as well as part links.

parts....
threaded rod (make sure its long enough)
washers (youll need atleast 4 and make sure they fit on the rod)
walmart special skate board ($20 or so design doesnt matter just the wheels)
nut (that fir the threaded rod not the ones your born with)the nylon locking ones are best..........
(and or threadlock,locktightor, safety wire)

install
put one nut on end of threaded rod, then washer, then one wheel from skateboard then washer, then slide threaded rod thru front axle, then on other side put on washer ,skateboard wheel, washer, then end with a nut , cut off extra threaded rod (if you have any) and bam you have the foxy motard special front wheel slider on the cheap... and it comes with a extra set so if you do have a spill you can put the other set of wheels on and be ready for another slide :) or find another place to put them on the bike.....
once i get ahead i will be making a video about making a set and installing them on the versys

This is a case where I'd have to choose between time or money.
25 bucks +- investment and time or 40 bucks & a phone call.
Your mileage may vary

I just noticed the flat seat on your bike. Thought you were riding on a SC one. Do you switch off or have you developed a preference for one over the other?

TIA

I've had 7 seats. The one in the photo was #6 The Seat Concepts was #7. Both of the seats are great but if you ride with a passenger the flat one is useless very little padding for a passenger. The SC got rid of the forward slope better than all of the seats i had. If i were to buy another Versys i'd get the Seat Concepts for it.
