Hello from deepest Lincolnshire
on: January 15, 2020, 07:11:07 PM
Just changed from a Tiger 800 to a 2018  1000GT in red.
Love the colour, the smooth engine, the ease of putting on the centre stand & the comfort.
 Miss the cruise control ( couldn’t run to a new model) , don’t like only one low beam showing. Is there a quick fix? Had this issue 24 years ago on a Triumph Sprint, solved by plugging in a new relay, thought manufacturers would have sorted this by now.
I almost forgot , I can now “get my leg over with ease ” again as the tiger was so high! Must be an age thing!

 :764: :764:. There's a mod you can buy that puts both headlights on at the same time, I had it on my 2015 model. Can't remember what make it was but someone will be along to let you know.

Welcome to the forum Carnsey, and also to Versys ownership.

The cyclops headlight is an irritation And can be sorted with a Skene IQ 170-A kit, you can fit it yourself if you are reasonably competent.

Welcome!

Have met this guy once on a Dutch motorcycle fair, seemed to be working. But search the forum. Think there was someone using /used it.

Welcome aboard   :031:

You must have looooong legs.  The only downside I found with the V1K was the height of the seat, but  lowering links solved that problem.  There are plenty of throttle locks available.  I went with the Omni Cruise
which gives my right wrist a respite and is easily switched to other bikes.

Mccruise.com in Australia makes a really nice cruise control for your bike.
