Headlight issues...

Anybody replace the headlights on their 2012 yet??? I can't fit my hand in there so I'm looking for the easy way to pull the front end apart. Do the light connectors pull straight out?

From the service manual for the 2010-2011 - I assume yours is the same:

Tire Selection

What tires do you guys recommend? I've got the stock tires on now, Dunlop Sportmax's, but it looks like I'll only get 5k miles out of them. Already showing a flat spot and I only have 3k miles on them now... any suggestions?

Pilot Road 3's are pretty commonly used....I'm running PR2's right now that have 8000 miles on them and still have a lot of life left. When they're done, I'll go to a set of PR3's.

My Versys! From Purchase to Now

Here is my '08 purchased in Junction City Kansas


It had 20K on the odometer. We decided to move from Kansas to Idaho so I rode up there to look at houses.
This is the road trip picture.



I decided that I could follow my sons on their dirt bikes...what could go wrong? I even had TKC-80's on there.
Well, it's NOT a dirt bike, for starters.



So I took off the broken plastics and kept on riding.
...To Yosemite



...and to Atlanta



...and to work every day



Sometimes I even share the "Motorcycle Only" parking with other people



I am now just over 65,000 miles. Not one single problem, not one issue, not one breakdown. I would buy another one of these in a skinny minute! Best bike EVER!!!

Take off one of the fairings and you can get your hand in to the lights
