questions from a newbie...

What air pressures do you recommend?


My bike has the Alpha Tecknik Lowering Link and I believe it has a somewhat shortened center stand. I can only get it up on the center stand after I put a 3/4 in piece of wood under the rear wheel. It is dang near impossible getting it down again!!! any suggestions?

Thanks

Tire pressures vary by personal preference and tire type. Try pressures between those recommended on the bike's sticker or manual and the mark on the tire sidewall. Oil questions can only be addressed at https://www.stromtrooper.com/maintena...il-thread.html

Stock links are 140mm between hole centers. Longer links lower the bike. You can go back to stock links if your legs are long enough.

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
