Hello

Hi I've been a member here for a while but never introduced myself. I've been riding for 20+ years; I've got a 2004 V-Strom 650 w/40k miles.

I'm 6'3" and I find the Wee a bit cramped. What is the best way to increase the distance between peg and seat? Taller seat? Lower pegs? Also looking for a recommendation for a good bar riser to go along with this combo but I will continue looking in the other threads. Thanks!

Hello

Rox Risers, peg lowering kit, taller seat, different bars. The vendors here have the peg kit, Seat Concepts makes a tall seat that is priced reasonably. Protaper Adventure high bars help.

Welcome to the Forum. The K4 Wee is a good ride to own. Ride safe.

Hi, I have a 2010 v Strom 650 with 25k on the clock. I'm looking for a bit of advice with the OEM heated grips, they will come on and heat but once you are out on the road and the revs go up, the grips go off, I think there might be some sort of voltage overload. Has anyone had this experience and what did you do to fix it.

Would it be possible to swap out the control with an Oxford control and let the grips and wiring in place.

If you get a peg lowering kit, please buy it from the guy who developed it and not one of those who purchased it from us, handed it to someone else, and said copy this and put my name on it.

This may be helpful as well. https://www.adventuretech.biz/shortertaller-riders.html

If you are having trouble getting your boot under the shifter check out our foot peg and control lowering kit with gear shifter relocation. Oddly the DL650 has slightly more room between the shifter and the peg than the DL1000. So go with eth esamller kit unless you have a US size 15 or larger.
