I have not tried on my 2020, but based on the post it seems to have helped...I donít recall any changes from 2019 to 2020, so I suspect the result would be similar.

On the MK 2 - I just remove the neg to the battery, unplug the air sensor, remove the airbox, plug in the hoses, and then re-connect the sensor then the battery negative. I balance without the airbox on, which also makes it so much easier to get to the adjusting screws.

Reverse the procedure to re-fit - remove the negative before disconnecting / refitting the sensor that way there is no error code. I do mine at 1200 rpm tickover, balanced to number 1 cylinder (I seem to remember mine settled at about 26 cmhg) and it runs smooth as silk.  :002:

with my digital tool, I tuned all the cylinders to 150 number.  One unit is 2.86766002 mmhg, so it translates into 43 cmhg.  I had similar reading in my Versys 650.  I wonder why the difference.  in the factory manual it is said that the vacuum should be 40.7cmhg.  But in the instructions that come with the digital tool they say not to care about the number, but more that all the cylinders are in sync.

Versys 1000 - General Chat / Re: Seating position and comfort
« Last post by markymark11 on Today at 12:33:40 PM »
My 2017 is perfect for me and I have a bad back and wrists. (previous bikes include things like GSF1250 bandit, Fazer 1000, Tiger 800, S1000XR Vstrom 650 and 1000 and dozens of others ...75 in total  :008:)

The only issues I had on the Versys was when I tried bar risers which took too much weight off the front wheel and made it feel "flighty" at speed. I tried them because I wanted a better angle on the levers for my wrists and found that the standard bars would only adjust so far before they hit the tank at full lock with the handguards. It is not bad enough to swap the bars out though. I just remove the handguards for summer and adjust accordingly.

I have a Sargent seat conversion with air channels in it and slightly flatter than OEM, and it is all day comfy for me, but... we are all different aren't we   :002:

I did a test drive, and I really see no difference at all between having or not having db killer in my Akra; except the bike sounding worse with the baffle.  Steve is probably supersensitive to these things, but for me the bike is so powerful that I see no reason to crave more power.
