just bought a 2003 v strom 1000 30,000 miles has full luggage (suzuki issue) its my bumble bee bright yellow and black. i plan on setting the valves and replacing all the cooling hoses. i plan on using castral 15/40 full systhetic the clutch isnt noise at idle but does vibrate and make noise from 3200 to 4200 rpm . the former owner cleared the baffles in the mufflers sounds good but at times i get a back fire usually coming up to a stop, just wondering if these are related.
i do have an extra factory service manual if anyone wants one i can be reached at 1-800-622-1037 thanks ddburgman
