What grip covers are those? I have the same color scheme (by far the best) and am mulling over the purchase....

Just got a new 2012 Versys 650 home the other day, it's sharing the garage with the KLR. Hopefully they'll get along.

I'm REALLY looking forward to spring, can't wait to hop on and get some trips in!

But... better take advantage of the winter while I can and start buying farkles. Crash bars are a must, methinks...

Crashbars and the SWMotech bash plate are nice to have...

I want hand guards that:

1) use the stock end weights. usually the bar ends that come with the hand guards aren't as heavy and you get increased vibes.
2) allow me to do a full lock with my givi screen in the highest setting

I can't find one that has those 2......

Merry Christmas Versys owners!
It may be hard to find hand guards that meet these requirements. Won't the weight of the hand guards themselves add weight that would replace the weight of the weights? I've run without the weights for 35000 miles and not noticed any vibs.
BTW I had to trim the screen too.

Not even close - re: vibrations i can barely tell a difference on my DRZ with no guards vs with guards. But the bar end weight makes all the difference in the world.

Versys check

Hello
this is Jim, after about a 20 year absence I am back riding again with an 09 grn Versys. Love it and greatly missed the riding. Made some mods; bark-busters and weights(well of course you need them no matter what they say) , mirror extenders(M/W), bar riser-damper (M/W), spools (M/W), foot stand pad (M/W), windshield with extender, crash~bars, Skid/bash~plate, Scorpions at 8500 miles(stocks were just not there... next set ???)
2011 did a week to central Oregon/cascades and on to Crater Lake, then to the coast and back to Portland area.

A few trips out and around to Detroit Lake.
2012 A long weekend (4days) to Prineville (Murderers Creek) Burns, and Frenchglen eastern Oregon
2013 ???
