  1. Wanted
    Giving this a try. Want to buy VStrom 650 as my first bike. Preferred location - NorthEast; price around $2500; good working mechanical condition. Cosmetics are nice but are lower in priority than functional. Having no skills can't take up project or problem bike. Safety features as crash...
  2. V-Strom Service & Maintenance Questions/Discussion
    I replaced a front brake line on my '08 Wee with ABS. Now I need to fill and bleed it. Someone posted a diagram that showed how ABS works (alas, I don't have it at my fingertips, so I can't give credit :-( ), and it showed that under normal circumstances, a bunch of the tubing is closed off...
  3. DL650A - 2012-2016
    I just picked up a new to me 2012 650DL. Did a little maintenance/clean-up. Took it for a short ride. Everything worked great. Tested ABS, worked well. No issues. Got back to the garage, parked it, turned OFF the ignition and took out the key. The Neutral Light and the ABS light stayed ON...
  4. V-Strom Service & Maintenance Questions/Discussion
    I had my foot on the rear brake and rolled backward down a hill. I think the rear brake caliper rotated and broke the sensor. Has anyone experienced this? I am struggling to find a replacement part, any recommendations? Thank you
  5. DL650 and DL650A - 2004 to 2011
    As the title implies my 09 DL650A has a little headlight problem. Let me start by saying that my headlight issue is NOT from the starter switch assembly on the right side. Its brand new from suzuki and I put it in less than 2 months ago. The headlights flicker on and off and i cant find the...

    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...
  7. V-Strom Service & Maintenance Questions/Discussion
    I just replaced the tires on my 2012 Vstrom 650 and now the ABS light is staying on. I took the sensors out before taking the wheels off and just double checked that they are still tightly attached. The sensor rings do not appear to be damaged and there are no electrical issues that are...
  8. DL650 and DL650A - 2004 to 2011
    Just recently picked up my 2008 650 Vstrom, after riding a Honda 1100 Shadow for a decade plus. Could someone tell me - is there a simple way to determine if my bike has ABS? Nothing wrong - just wondering.

  9. DL650 and DL650A - 2004 to 2011
    I'm looking for a used Gen II Wee. I believe I want ABS but have no experience with ABS. I recently went down (hard) due to locking up the front wheel as I swerved to avoid an oncoming cager. Exited the pavement and went into gravel on the side of the road. Would ABS have allowed the wheel...
  10. DL650A - 2012-2016
    I believe I understand where to install the Easter Beaver ABS cutoff switch - to a point. There appear to be two ABS fuses, and I THINK they have similar connectors to attach the switch to. My question is "Which ABS fuse do interrupt/install the switch on? The 25amp ABSMOT (the one on the...

    Some have found it necessary to remove the side panel plastic to gain access to the ABS wiring to install Eastern Beaver ABS switch kit. I was able to access the terminal with the panel just loosened in front. Releasing the 25 amp ABS fuse holder from its bracket gives the wiring enough slack to...
  12. DL650A - 2012-2016
    Has anyone figured out a way to put some kind of shutoff for the abs? Love the abs, but a switch should be standard on any dual sport motorcycle.

  13. General V-Strom Discussion
    Hi all. One day last year I had to brake hard and the front ABS kicked in for a couple of seconds. Immediately after that, the ABS warning light came on (and has stayed on ever since). At the end of that days riding and with the engine turned off, I realised I could hear a buzzing sound. I...

    Another brake related question. I know from reading other posts that the rear brake is soft. But I'm wondering if the ABS is working correctly on the rear. I thought ABS prevented locking up. When I brake gradually from soft up to hard, I feel nothing on the rear brake until ABS kicks in...

    My ABS warning light had been coming on at random intervals over the last few days. It would start normally and remain on until I got to around 5km/hr and then go off (which is normal), but would then come on whilst riding for as little as 1 minute or sometimes as long as 20 minutes. I was...
  16. Stromtroopers - New member introductions
    Picked up a 2009 DL650A last Saturday with 7800 miles. I've been reading the forums/looking for a few months. I'm pretty excited about doing a little farkling. Ordered a Blue Sea 12V socket today and some Grip Puppies. Still contemplating a Gel seat. Just wanted to say thanks for all members...
  17. DL650 and DL650A - 2004 to 2011
    Hi All - Just wanted to share some of my excitement on the forum. I'm 25, just made it through the MSF class, and purchased a used 2009 Wee ABS. Have some experience riding mostly dirt bikes in high school, but not much since. I'm 6'2, 185 and thinking the Wee will be a great first "real"...
  18. DL1000 from 2002-2012
    I'm wondering why there is no ABS option available for Vee? Talked to the mechanic-owner at the dealership where I bought my bike and he told me that even if it might be possible to buy the DL650 ABS assembly and install it on DL1000, the problem would be the ABS computer that programmed for...
  19. General V-Strom Discussion
    Trying to decided between an ABS bike and non-ABS (650 Strom, in either case). When braking and *not engaging* ABS, how do the brakes feel? Are they the same as a non-ABS Strom? I'd hate to get the bike and find that the brakes feel odd, just because it has ABS.
