Not keen on the instruments and the standard screen is a shocker.

Big question is.......is it $5k better than the DL650?
Got the bike back, no issues found so all good.

Riding the DL1000 and the DL650 back to back, the 1000 has a lot more low down torque and better brakes, would I trade the VStrom in on one, no.

Cheers, Oz.

I received my recall letter today so will have to book it in. The last recall was done in the cbd at action but they've since closed. Guessing Kigarah is the closest to home now. Any ideas on how long the work takes for the vee?

Is yours a Vee2?
If it is it depends if any of the wiring harness needs to be replaced and this can't be known until the the tank is off and the connectors can be examined. When mine was done they needed it for a few hours only as the connectors were ok. Otherwise they would have needed it all day.

Stu53 mine is a 2008 model. It's my second recall in 5 years and I thought they did something to sort the rectifier last time. That's what they are looking at this time. From what Ive read here most are for younger models.
