No, at least if you mean in that storage space directly under the seat.

I don't know that that's true as my DL1000 ran fine last year when I went up Pikes Peak and hit 14,000+ km


Besides the issue happened when I was at the lowest altitude today and maybe the last few days.

Parking in the sun, especially after fueling and if like me squeezing the last to drops in when on the road, will cause the fuel to expand and some will get into the evaporative canister. I assume your bike has one. I have had it happen on the first RT I had where I modified the filler neck to squeeze in more fuel. Hot engine and/or parking in the sun caused it more than once. Similar symptoms.

That canister is meant to absorb vapors, then allow them to be drawn back into the engine as you drive. Get liquid in there and it can suck that back in instead of vapor which would cause stumbling and stalling.

Although that still doesn't eliminate a fuel tank vent being an issue, it just makes it much less likely

Clutch Lever Switch

V-Tom, There is a strong chance that you have a clutch lever switch issue. This is a known issue (by folks who have had it) but not known by every Suzi dealers. I went through this and I called it "limp mode" https://www.stromtrooper.com/dl1000a...r-c28-c65.html

The V2+ bikes share ECU DNA with the GSXR bikes. The first test is: With the side stand up will the bike start without the clutch lever pulled in. I never noticed that my bike would because I just never tried to start the bike that way. That is not the only test but it is a "litmus" test.

Sometimes the wire is broken, other times the switch is just dirty or misaligned. Very simple to remove / replace.

Could the speed at which you filled the tank moved crud away form the pump screen ??


Are your throttle bodies butterfly's moving freely ?

I was thinking I was getting some fuelling issues, while looking things over I lubricated the throttle bodies and all my concerns disappeared.

I'm not convinced I did anything but things are better now.


I'm always concerned about my fuel pump, I'm always expecting it to give up, it has been run dry quite a few times but except for a bad dose of fuel it has never let me down.

Well the issue returned again today. This is the first time I rode it nice posting about it (have been in training with work.)

It ran fine for a while (something like 60 miles) and the temperature was in the upper 90ís Andy then it stRted doing the same thing. I stopped for a short break and the problems stopped.

I ode a bit then gassed it and added some fuel-injector cleaner. I didnít ride enough after that for the issues to happen but when it does happen backing off the throttle and/or shutting the engine off for a few seconds seem to give temporary relief. Iím working with the theory that it was some bad gas and hoping the fuel injector cleaner might help out.

I sure hope itís isn't a fuel pump as Iím a long way from home. I have an 800 mile day tomorrow and hope it gets better.
