My Wish List for the DL650
The very first thing I would like is a better way to set the clock. Pushing both the buttons at the same time just doesn't work for me. I finally get the numbers to flash but what a chore. Any easier way?
Also, why does the ignition have to be on? Turn on the key and the fuel pump primes the injectors, then if you "miss" the two button push and end up just sitting and waiting, you are using up battery power, then you have to turn the key off and then on again and the pumps start up and now you have to much gas. Hard to start.
Next thing, a real helmet lock. Please
How about a dual exhaust setup? This would keep the symetry of the bike and they could be made of a light weight material, a skid plate and hand guards. Better horn, lights are perfect the way they are.
Finally, junk the trailwings. I find they can slip very easily when on painted markings such as crosswalk squares etc. I'm usinf Maxxis Presa Detours and what a difference.
That's all I have. The rest of the bike is real fine to me.
Be careful what you shoot at. Most things in here don't react too well to bullets. - Capt Ramius, Red October
