  1. DL650A - 2017+
    Hi all, wasn't quite sure where to post this - my question is specifically in relation to any potential changes to the 2017+ 650's for a valve adjustment, so went with the 2017+ forum, but I obviously understand it's a maintenance question. There are posts abound regarding valve adjustments...

    I would like to be able to adjust the rear preload to fit my needs (switching between solo and 2-up). However, my dial won't turn at all. Well, maybe 1/300th of a degree.

    Clutch lever friction point? Hi, First service complete and my dealer adjusted the clutch. The friction point is now just before the clutch is fully released. After a 40 min ride through traffic, I found it really annoying. At the same time, the bike feels a bit smother. So the question...
  7. DL650 and DL650A - 2004 to 2011
    Its time for my valve adjustment. Actually its past time! Anybody close to WNC that would be willing to show me how and got the tools it would be appreciated. Never done it, got the manual and it probably aint that hard but an experienced hand would be nice. Let me know. RR
