You're joking.  The brakes are shocking on the V650 and the suspension is way too soft.  I've upgraded the rear shock and I'm tempted to do the same at the front.  The bike will be getting braided lines at some point. 

I do love my Mk3 but it's not perfect.
   The suspension on mine is very good for what I do , the way that I ride  and the roads that I ride on. .  So no I am not joking.

 I have just come from a Versys 1000 that was upgraded with Maxton suspension, that had been set up specifically for me, and again the roads that I ride. So I know the difference between good and bad setup.

And again, good brakes to one user , are crap brakes to another.  My brake pads last 30,000 miles, so I am not last of the demon late brakers. Consequently the little Versys brake set up is perfect for me.  I too love my MK3, and agree wholeheartedly that it is not perfect. But what is :question:
What would you rather be, or a wasp?

And therein lies the root of all happiness.

I know it's not perfect for everyone, but it is perfect for me.
When you find what you like, embrace it and [censored] everyone else.

" ....and [censored] everyone else."

 Well no because I think a little discrimination, a small cull  :027: might be required first. And besides, think of the time it would take  :5: .

  That said, do let us know how it goes, but speak up because I'll be keeping my distance. Can't handle too much joy  :2: .

  Sadly not  :2:.
