Falling Flat

All,

I have an 02 with 35K on the clock. When I crack her open at about six grand she falls on her face. It acts like she's starved for fuel. Cleaned the filer in the tank to no avail. All maintenance is up to date and she runs great every where else. Any lessons learned and shared would be greatly appreciated,

Thanks in advance,

That sounds like a fuel pump/filter problem. Do a flow test discussed at http://www.vstrom.info/Smf/index.php/topic,3981.0.html
Also see the sticky posts at http://www.vstrom.info/Smf/index.php/board,15.0.html for various solutions and more information if the test indicates a problem.

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
