    Hi everyone, A couple of weeks ago I was heading back up to my apartment from my parent's house when after a fairly hard acceleration onto the interstate, and about two miles further down the road, no power was getting to my rear wheel. The bike seemed to be shifting into gear and was revving...

    I have had a need to remove the slave cylinder etc so that I could clean the chain and front sprocket etc. (previous owner saw fit to just lag the chain in wax and never clean it) It's now sparkling like a new one. However, the issue I have, now, is all put back together and the clutch lever is...

    Hi everyone, I bought this "fixer upper" to put nicely last summer from someone who had in my estimation just ridden the poor thing for the last 50000km without any major repairs or maintenances. The bike has 160000 miles on the odometer so i spent most of July and august fixing everything i...

    Hi everybody! I'm on the way back home after 26,000 km, and I'm getting closer. Now in Albania I had a problem with the clutch disks for the second time. Being in a small town, I managed to get myself some FERODO clutch plates. The mechanic seemed knowledgeable but: 1. I didn't have...

    After far too many hard miles on my clutch, including silt mountain ascents, wheelies and dune riding, I've finally got to the point where the clutch is slipping nearly every ride and I've maxed out the adjustment at the clutch pushrod. I've gone through all the adjustment checks from the...

    Hey folks, I'm riding a new to me 2015 vstrom 1000. Beautiful machine, easy on the eyes, eats up the miles and doesn't leak oil everywhere like my last bike. Only issue is, as the bike warms up during my journey/commute, the clutch begins to engage further and further out. I start my day...
  7. DL650 and DL650A - 2004 to 2011
    I have a DL650A 07 with 63.000 km. At around 50k I had noticed that I had problem switching to neutral when I was fully stopped and the clutch lever had a lot of free play before it would engage. So I used the adjuster nut on the lever to reduce the free play. That fixed the switching to neutral...

    Hello all, just wanting to know if my clutch actuator on my 2004 Suzuki V Strom 650 has too much play. Please see the Youtube video I took, link is below. Also, It seems when I ride on hot days and the bike is hot, the free play begins to become more. I know there is no hydraulic clutch fluid...

    Okay, I have 2005 V and she was running like a champ yesterday. Today, after a bath I was unable to get her to start. I checked the engine cut off, as it's no the first or last time I've tried t run a bike with it off. After reading an older forum I plugged in my clutch line that had pulled...

    Hello everyone. I have a 2004 DL-650 and am looking for some guidance. I just replaced the battery and changed the oil after the bike was sitting for a few weeks (due to the battery being at the end of it's life). After I finished the tune up, I went to take it out for a ride and promptly...
  11. DL1000A - 2014-2016
    Maybe it's my imagination, but my 2014 Vee2 seems to doing more of a clunk/lurch than it used to do when I go into first gear from neutral at a stop. I've been doing more riding around town lately, so this could just be that I'm stopping more at traffic lights and am noticing it more than...
  12. DL650A - 2012-2016
    So we've had two weeks to get to know each other - super happy my old riding skills came back after many years on a scooter. They really are different animals. Installed the fork brace and kickstand foot from Rick at Adventure Tech. I'm a little less anxious about that stand folding on me...

    I recently bought a 03 DL1000 with 64k km on the meter. I was allready informed about the infamous chudder between 2 and 4000 rpm spand - no surprises there. However, what do surprise me is the difficulty of getting the bike into motion in 1st gear. It feels almost as the clutch plates are worn...

    Clutch “sticking” when up-shifting DL1000K9 with 60000klm on it - Clutch “sticking” when up-shifting – it does not want to disengage, even worst if I am heavy with the right hand Pull hard on the clutch and no matter how many times I lift the gear lever it will not shift. If I shift as I pull...

    When I push my bike around in neutral, it is very easy to move. If I have it in gear and push it it is much harder to move. When I start the bike in 1st gear with the clutch pulled in it move the bike forward against the front brake. I've adjusted the clutch lever travel to factory specs. It...

    Hey guys, I'm a new rider and my MSF course is in a few days (so I guess I'm not even hatched yet). I got a new 2014 V-Strom 1000 Adventure and have been riding around the backyard to get a feel for starting, stopping and whatnot. I drove several laps around the backyard in first, taking...

    OK, I have had my 06 1000 for about two and a half years with no issues, but now I have one. I out a new chain and sprockets on the bike a couple nights ago. I was working at night and was getting a little frustrated. Wasn't the first time and won't be the last, but I had some problems with the...
  19. DL650 and DL650A - 2004 to 2011
    I have a 2011 Wee, just purchased used @ 1700 miles. Love the bike, but on my first ride I noticed that in first gear when I'm riding the clutch (mostly slowing down, I think) I sometimes hear a jingling sound. It almost sounds like I've run over some metal pieces, or something like that...
  20. DL1000 from 2002-2012
    All, I'm currently changing out clutch baskets and am having a hard time removing the oil pump drive gear that is located on the back of the basket. I removed the spring pin clip, and the cylindrical key seems to be moving freely in the slot. The gear is not coming off, its not even moving a...
