You need to remember that early V-Stroms had two low beam headlights, where today's models have just one. My 2010 DL650 has never suffered from idle hammer, and incidentally, it has also never suffered from starter button issues either. However I have had LED headlight bulbs for years now, and I have always had the bike garaged.
I would suggest to late model owners that the chances of starter button issues should be minimal.
