Checklist for used 14-16 Vstrom
I'm reading as fast as i can...
I've got a second test ride and after reading the stuff here, am trying to come up with a 1, 2, 3 of the best ways to discern if there are any of the known issues (in my case on the 2014). I can't go digging to get the ecu part number, and won't take the sprocket cover off to check for clutch grime...
What can i do in an on-road test to discern if the bike has known issues?
Like how would you try to trigger the low-speed stall/backfire (gear / speed combination).
I've read other things that mentioned noise/vibration under heavy accel in certain rpm ranges in some gears... anyone know the combo where it would happen.
That's the kind of stuff I'm looking for if anyone can rattle it off.
Oh... also gotta find a description of the functino of the controls on the handlebars to test that everything that touches is working right... traction control, etc.
