Newb here, new '12 wee

Hi All,

New guy here, first post !

Just picked up my new '12 strom yesterday, nicest bike I've ever had.

However, wtf was Suzuki thinking putting the "meter" switch right behind the frikking clutch lever?? Every time I pull the clutch in the display changes odo->trip etc. Sheesh.

Al..

Welcome,
I just got mine yesterday also.
Funny I don't have the issue you are talking about, is your clutch positioned correctly on the handlebar?

I just checked mine, you probably have to loosen the 8mm bolt holding the clutch lever tight and rotate the assembly down so that when you engage the clutch it's not hitting the switch. Mine was very close to it.

Doh! Thanks, feeling kinda stupid - the dealer assembled the clutch perch about 1/8" too high. Fixed!

With the older bikes having a flash to pass switch there, we'd get posts asking why the high beam light would come on when the clutch lever was pulled.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s
See https://www.stromtrooper.com/general-...nicknames.html

Glad that was the only issue.
