Greetings! New member located in Crowsnest Pass Alberta. I Recently added 2012 V Strom 650 to my small motorcycle collection. Lots of useful info here. I'd like to fit 2017+ cast aluminum wheels on my 2012, but unsure they will fit. Anyone know? Thanks & ride safe!

Welcome to the Forum, lrb. Congrats on your new ride. Sorry unable to advise on your L7+ wheels fitting the L2 Glee question. Have you compared the part numbers?

If all the other parts in the assembly fit, the wheels will fit. As above, check the parts diagrams on the big warehouse parts houses web pages.

Please post what you find out, but I'll bet they are interchangable.

Welcome aboard! Gotta be amazing having that scenery around you all the time!

Stop in at the Canadian forum in Regional Forums here. There are other Strommers in BC and Alberta that might also want to say hello.


My Opinion:
Vee or V= DL1000 before 2014
Vee2 or V2 = DL1000 2015 to 2019
Vee3 or V3 = DL1050 2020 to?

My Stroms:
2006 DL650: 202,000 km 125,500 miles, Sold
2012 DL650 139,500+ km, 86,700+ miles. Sold
2015 DL1000 New July 2015 205,000+ km, 127,000+ miles.

This can help preventing from cars pulling out in front of you (SMIDSY)
