New to vstrom and in need of advice
I just picked up a 2010 dl1000 with 23 000 km. I have read that this is a very reliable bike. But as a new owner what are the thing I just look for or inspect?
What are the maintenance and the interval?
What should I never do with it?
Can I inspect the valve myself or should it be done by mechanic?
Do you use 87 or 91 octane ?
What are 5e common mechanic problem ( if there is any ) ?
What mod are a must?
It is my first bike and I am getting confident with it over time but I keep staying in low rom 3000-3500, the does not like it, it often studder and make weird noise, can i damage it overtime if I keep it in low rpm too often?
My high beam head light turn on sometime for no reason what should I look for?
Winter is coming here, I am looking to. 4 month with 6 feet of snow, so the bike will be in the garage and I will have plenty of time to take it appart, mod it, and do everything so It can be ready for next season.
Thank you very much
