Clutch cable is an easy and cheap replacement.
Around £20

A new key set will be a problem because you need to change the ignition barrel and ECU because of the codes
About £200 on Ebay

The fact it is a disgustingly butt ugly mark 1 is going to cost a bit more to fix.
About £3k

And welcome from me.

enjoy the forum and welcome to Versys ownership!

sounds like you've bought yourself a nice .... project  :whistle: :001:

My Mk3 V650 GT will be up for sale around February, if you're fed up and want something a bit newer, and better looking by then.

Otherwise, like I said enjoy the forum, there is loads of people where with lots of helpful knowledge and advice (not me I'm afraid) and ride safe!  :028:

Half the country knows you’re selling that bike by now!  :157:
Flog it in the for sale section like a normal person!  :211:
Just waiting for the old London “2 fer a poond”

Welcome to the forum pal, sorry to hear about the MK1, better luck next time! Maybe stop by spec savers on your way to the dealerships…

Thanks for the free advert Jay  :152:  :008:

You're just jealous because you got rid of yours and bought one of those slow V1k's!  :4:

I will be selling soon, don't worry!

going to the dealer to discuss and hopefully get a better idea on delivery of my Triumph Tiger Sport 660 next week  :celebrate: (did I mention I was buying a Tiger 660??  )  :008:

No man you had us all in suspense about what bike you are getting!
Good to see that bump on the head is still affecting your judgement though! Lol

The others will only be jealous  :008:  :4:

BTW, my bike is first on the list and will be one of the first few delivered to customers in the country and world as UK is first.
It'll be in by mid to late February but I've asked to hold off until 1st of March, for the new registration.
If anyone's interested, Laguna, Maidstone and Triumph Ashford will have demo's available from mid February.
