I just picked up a brand new 2019 versys 1000 lt se and am eager to ride the canyon tomorrow. My other bike is a bonneville t100. I look forward to participating in the forum. I'm sure to bombard you with a bunch of questions.

I'm happy with it.

5' 10"  and I can look over easily or raise it to look through the top if needed.

Hi Phil,

Glad to hear the case is working well for you.  Always good to hear how something is working for someone who has used it for a while.  Perhaps a bit of dry lube on the expansion clips would work.  I have a can of Remington dry gun lube around so perhaps I'll spray a little on them if I find them to be balky.

I think you probably have the 58X case.  There are color plates for those and they come with a carbon fiber plate.  The 59x actually has an aluminum plate on top.  I do not see any color plates for them and it appears for the Shad photos that the shape or the aluminum 59x cover is different than the 58x color plates.  If you know different please point me in the right direction to look at them.

I was guessing that the white plates for the 58x were likely a glossy finish unlike the satin finish of the 2019 Versys white.  Is that correct?  I would have still went with the 59x though since the price was so good.  Once I get the case in hand I'll see if I'm good with the aluminum or if I want to try and cover it with a carbon fiber wrap or something.
 
Thanks for the info, cheers!

Have you got a pic and link to Ebay? Cheers

I thought about changing the screen on my 2020 SE but decided to add a deflector instead.
The width of the screen wasnít the issue, just the height.

At its highest setting w/o the deflector it wasnít high enough to stop buffeting.

At its lowest setting w/ deflector itís just right for me. No wind hits my head and itís very quiet even at 70mph+ (on the track only officer :152:).
Iím 6ft for reference. 

It was a cheapy off fleebay and it doesnít even wobble.
The only gripe I have about it is they supplied it with black bolts the bloody rusted... I havenít had time to clean them up and paint them yet.

Hiya NZ, I bought the 59x to replace the original Givi top box on my 13 V1k. It's a great job! Can be a bit fiddly to extend or collapse as the clips don't always go in easily, but it's a really versatile bit of kit. 2 x full face lids no problem. When I bought mine they hadn't the white top ,so gave me a carbon fibre lookalike until the white came. I haven't put the white cover on yet as I don't dislike the carbon look.
BTW they're expensive here in UK at over£300

While inspecting the bike (and the bag of goodies I got with it) I discovered the previous owner installed a ProCycle jet kit and cut the top of the airbox.  It has a 150 main jet in it, but has the stock exhaust.  That's too much jet for the stock pipe, so I did the only reasonable thing and ordered a Leo Vince can for it.  Next week, more BRAAAP.

   



Well, what other 'reasonable' options are there  :745:

I took a few laps around my neighborhood today and discovered some decent trails nearby, which may or may not have involved minor trespassing...I waved at some kids, and jumped some curbs.  Man, this bike is fun.
