Backordered Manual and grips

Bought a new 2008 DL650 from On The Edge in Amherst, Ohio. Still waiting for the owners manual and the heated grips. Everything is "back-ordered". This is my 1st new motorcycle and I wanted to do everything by the book. Dealership keeps telling me it's back-ordered. It's been over a month. Thanks,.

Write it off to the popularity of the bike, I ordered a Suzuki manual from an online service manual place and it was back ordered for a month there as well. Hope this helps. I didn't do the heated grips, though in hindsight......... :rolleyes1:

The owner's manual or the service manual is back-ordered? I assume you mean the service manual since the owner's manual comes with the motorcycle.

Congrats on the new purchase!

When I bought my 650 last May I bought the Suzuki topcase at the same time. It was backordered too. It finally showed up in August! So this year, thinking I would outsmart them, I ordered the side cases in February with the assumption that they would be here by the time riding season began. They showed up the very next day. The lesson learned: if you order popular accessories during the riding season, expect to wait for them. It does seem odd though that you'd have to wait a month for a service manual. It may be because the 08 manauls haven't seen a full print run yet.

I picked up my new service manual (DL1000 2002-07) yesterday at the dealers. Two weeks from order to delivery and this was not the dealer where I bought the bike from. Maybe yours will be here soon.

Sometimes getting parts for the Vstrom takes a long time. The motorcycle industry hasn't caught up to the instant-everything world we've come to expect.
