I got an email from Kawasaki a few days ago with a survey about my opinions on the bike I bought in February.

It was full of insightful questions obviously written by people interested in how the bike was being used and how it could be improved.

One question was how I felt about only one headlight being on when set to low beam.

It's a shame I got stuck on question 30 further on and couldn't understand what it was on about. It wouldn't let me get any further no matter what answer I put, so I had to just shut down after many attempts to get past that stage.

2015 Versys 1000- 60,000 miles, 1 frayed starter circuit wire, 10 shims (over two checks), 6 rear tyres, 7 front tyres, 6 oil changes, 2 sets of plugs, 2 air filter, 6 fork seals,  1 set of head race bearings, 2 chain and sprocket sets, 4 screens, 3 pairs of front brake pads, 2 pair of rear pads (old ones wouldn't' wear out) 8 washes and counting.

can you remember if you used the same wiring colours as for the z1000 as I have just purchased the module and looking to install soon.

the colours are different on my Versys, because both plus and minus of lowbeam were black  :003:  so i had to measure which one was plus...  same for highbeam, but thats only 1 wire, because only plus is used.
And its better to remove the sidefairing, unless you have really small hands... :015:

Unless I'm really confident which colour does what I always check with a meter, for those that don't need anything fancy they're cheap enough these days and could save you a fortune if you were to connect things incorrectly  :002:

Increased lighting is much appreciated?

Picked one of the Doubetronics up. Can anyone who has installed one of these say which of the manuals they have available is closest to the Vk1? I assume the Z1000...

I like it.

I have a Skene Design IQ170-A lying around that I was using to dim my led driving lights on my old bike.  I'm thinking about using it to do something similar.

That looks prit-near exactly what I'm looking for.

I checked the link you sent (thanks!) and the install instructions make the modifications seem pretty minor; one wire snipped, I think?

Do you have any experience riding at night with the mod switched on and if so, what's your opinion of the headlight effectiveness overall? I'm assuming you had no issues with aiming or beam spread/range as the customization shouldn't have modified any of the existing stock configuration...

Any trouble hiding the module itself?

Thanks again!
