Perhaps I'll ask my torque / countersteering question on the V1k forum and watch the fall out. North/South Korea will have nothing on that  :008: :008: :008:

Sorry Dave T, but 78B, you must do it  :028: :008: :028:

I for one will sit back and chuckle to myself in anticipation waiting for some of the most diverse comments that will come flying in - especially from our resident scientific expert on everything. Who said these forums aren't fun - I just love some of the replies as long as you don't take them toooooooo seriously  :008:. I must say, however, that the majority of posts are really useful and very helpful  :152:

Yes please Bart, if not too much bother.

I have had a reply from the supplier on FleaBay and he says the one advertised, shown on a Versys 650, will fit my 2018 V1K.................but I am a bit dubious.

BM,
Just tried it and it is too small, not by much but will not work.
I originally bought it for the 650, sold that and then used it on a CB1300 where it fitted perfectly but not the V1k.
The label on the cover says 4xl, however the bag/wrapping it came in had the XL circled ????

TM's link to the 1000 forum showed a guy had a 5xl.

Let us know what you get as it looks like I will need another.

I have been doing a bit of back reading on the forum while the storms blow through here.
This is such a great write up and the pictures have seeded some touring dreams, those towns and mountain roads, charmed by the Tan y Castell  brekwast.... making a change from the tortilla bocadilla and cafe con leche.
Cheers Bart.  :028:
