New to Versys
« on: Oct 17, 2020, 08:34 PM »
Hi, I have just bought a nice 2007 Versys 650 in Orange showing only 6300 miles. It is my first foray into the Versys family, but have had many bikes before, currently have a Ninja 1000sx. Rode the Versys the 100 miles home and so far so good. Could do with a lowering kit to make it a better fit, so if anyone has one they no longer need give me a shout.

Hi and welcome to the forum.

Nice to hear of another classic Mk1 still on the circuit. They were the best- the others are like sequels - never as good as the original.

Welcome, nice low mileage there, hopefully she'll run  for 100,000 more.

It is easier to ask for forgiveness than permission.

Sorted with a lowering kit now thanks. Hopefully many more miles will be travelled on it.
