    As promised, here are some first pics of my 2011 650. 9k miles. Fluids changed around 7k. I've had a few bikes, but the only ones that compare directly would be the G650GS or Versys 650. Maybe the Bonneville for utility ha. So far it reminds me the most of my K75, though. Happy Trails!
  2. For Sale
    I have a "Moose Racing Adventure Windscreen" for a 2012 to (I don't know) 650. It is labelled as 4" shorter than stock. Dark tint. I sold the bike a few years ago and this thing has been in my garage in a box ever since. $20 plus shipping and it's yours, or make an offer. I just want the room...

    Hey, I thought I'd post this since I couldn't really find a similar thread. I bought my brand new MY 2020 V Strom in September 2020. I rode it for a month or two; then it was time to store it away for the winter (I live in Western Europe). I never rode in the wet or snow. So my bike has also...

    Hello, My boyfriend loves his 2014 V-Strom 650, but the previous owner removed the "S" emblem on the side of the bike. Since he's proud of the fact that is a Suzuki, I thought it would be nice to find the "S" emblem and give it to him for Christmas, so he can re-glue it on. Attached is a photo...

    Hello all, I'm new around here. Recently purchased a showroom condition 2014 v strom 650 and I am absolutely utterly in love with it. Best bike I've ever ridden. I want to fit some spot lights /auxiliary lights to my crash bars, but im at a bit of a loss as to which ones to buy. Any...
  8. V-Strom Service & Maintenance Questions/Discussion
    I don't know if what I'm about to describe means the clutch isn't engaged or what, but it makes zero sense to me. I'm replacing my chain and sprockets, so I had to remove the clutch cable assembly. 2008 650. I watched a video on adjustment, which I did, but the following things happen with my...

    First, apologies if this post is odd, or if I accidentally break some etiquette I'm unaware of, I'm new to the forum and looking at purchasing a used 2012 wee-strom. The elephant in the room for me is that it's got roughly 30,000 miles, and he's asking $4,700 for it. It's black, looks to be in...

    So. I've almost got the money saved. (My treasurer/wife is big on "no debt for nuttin' that isn't a house.") Been watching here, Craigslist, and ADVRider to see what's available used and what's a good deal vs. not a good deal. Definitely want a 650, ideally already with luggage (my Excel...

    Hello from Colorado! My buddy and I just bought used 650's and are looking forward to hitting the Colorado and Utah trails. I dropped a ton of money yesterday over at Performance Cycle which is off the hook for gear, and am excited to get to do some off road riding that doesn't kill me. I'm a...
  12. Euro Troopers!
    Hi guys, Ben here, a journalist with Bike Magazine. I'm looking to chat with a few V-Strom 650 owners for a feature to go alongside our review of the 2017 model. Have you done big miles and toured overseas? Do you live in the midlands / SE England? Please pm me. Cheers! :grin2:
  13. DL650 and DL650A - 2004 to 2011
    Hi there, so I've got my eye on picking up a 2007 Weestrom in the next little bit, everything is in great condition except one of the rims is bent. In other unfortunate news a buddy of mine who has a 2014 with the spoked wheels on it has has a wreck riding offroad. He is o.k. but his bike is...

    Hi All, First post here. I had an accident while out on some remote trails a few weeks ago. Thankfully I'm fine and the bike only suffered cosmetic damage--headlight and lower fairings. I'm going with the X2 headlight for durability and much cheaper service/replacement--I take good care of my...
  15. DL650 and DL650A - 2004 to 2011
    Hey guys, Brand new here and to v stroms as well. Been riding for a while; started on a big green Kow 250 dirtbike, moved to a 92 KTM 300 exc, then got into cruisers- first an 88 VT1100, which I chopped up into a bobber, another stock vt1100, and then a Venture Royale 1200. I'm at the point...

  17. South and Southeast
    Has anyone ever planned a meet? I say that we pick a location like Raleigh, Greenville or Fayetteville. Pick a restaurant with a decent parking lot, lets all ride in, have a meal and see if we can't make some riding buddies. If nothing else, we can look at each others bikes and get some...
  18. HEY LOOK! There is a V-Strom
    Y'know, I'm a little surprised this section isn't called Stromspotting. Anyway, leaving Toronto shortly after my birthday, my girlfriend spotted this gem on Spadina Avenue south of College. She even recognized it without the plate, which is a good sign, but I suppose with that kind of...

    Hi there all Somewhat new to forum, but stalker for a while now. Bought a '12 650 about 2 months ago with zero on the odometer... racked up a massive 285 miles (too much work), and had to have the 1st service done in preparation for a 1400 mile trip from Roseville to Joshua Tree. Service...
