Delivered Tuesday

My Wee will be delivered Tuesday

I'm new here and new to the Wee, hey y'all! I probably won't be able to ride it for another 3 or 4 weeks because of knee replacement but I wanted to take advantage of the 0% from Suzuki.

Oh, I'm getting the Adventure. I ended up liking the all black look better.

Congrats on the new bike. Welcome. I've had my 650 Adventure several months and like it more every time I ride it. I'll wager you'll be very happy with yours once your knee heals up and you get to "try it out."

Go to the Suzuki motorcycle site, bring up the 2012 DL 650 page. You will find a tab there somewhere with "accessories". Copy the part number of the accessories you want and Google it. You might want to add "suzuki" to the search. I found that the best way to get a good price on the factory accessories I have.

Before you go wild on OEM accessories, discuss your needs here. Many aftermarket accessories are better quality and less expensive depending on what you are seeking.

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

I was thinking about a matching top box. What would you recommend?

I would recommend buying the basic instead of the Adventure and equipping it the way you want. With the Adventure, you're pretty much stuck with the Suzuki Top box. It's a good one, though expensive. Talk to your dealer. Suzuki has screwed up the accessory page in a major way. Suzuki Cycles - Product Lines - Cycles - Products - V-Strom 650 - 2012 - DL650AADV - Accessories - Luggage - 990D0-ALTCE-038 lists the aluminum top case but shows the plastic one and lists Top Case Carrier Plate and Top Case Installation Kit as necessary even though the Adventure has the plate installed. Anyway, you wind up paying about $550 to add a top case in addition tho the $1500 premium of the Adventure over the basic.

Greywolf,
I see that you added the Adventure style side cases to your bike. How much did they cost? (from where)
TIA,
Steve

Nope. I got SW-Motech quick release racks from Twisted Throttle and Givi E36 side cases from sporttour.com



You might have seen this pic that is not my bike.
