Nice, I like your mount also, (from previous photos). I had something similar on My KTM 990, but they cost a fortune. Did you use a relay when you wired them up?

On the BigVersys1000 thread there is a someone who posted that he test rode both, and bought the Versys because the FJ09 had serious vibes. A test ride on both will certainly be in order.
