    Okay. Need some feedback here. 2008 DL1000 with 30k miles on the clock. About a month and a half ago, I did a coolant change/flush, skid plate install, and crash bar installation all in a very busy weekend. Then, shortly after that, I started having an issue where the bike would start getting...

    Welllll after chasing down a oil leak (the gaskets behind the front sprocket was the culprit), putting fresh oil in her and going for a 45 mile test ride, stopping half way to inspect, and all seemed well, no oil dripping on the exhaust causing smoke and making me look stupid, the motorcycle...

    My Google-fu has failed me. Anybody know why the coolant "guage" would always read 2 "bars"? I start up the bike from cold; 2 bars. Ride it for 5 hours; 2 bars. Oh; and it seems that the cooling fan never comes on either. Thoughts?

    Hi everyone, I'm a long-time lurker, first-time poster. This forum has been super useful. I'm running into a coolant leak issue and I was hoping to get some advice from some of you more experienced guys. I discovered a coolant leak on my '07 650 wee strom, and I'm not sure what the best way...

    Hello guys. Under my shiny ride this AM was a drip or two of coolant (no oil). It was coming from the rubber tube under the bottom fairing that is obviously meant for this purpose, but I am wondering at the cause. I will take a pic tonight to show you the exact hose but it "appears" to go to a...

    Hi, Anybody thought about moving the (Radiator) Engine Coolant Reserve Tank on the '07Wee from where it is positioned under the rear part of the gas tank? Where it is now you have to fuss about a bit and raise up the gas tank to add more H2O and coolant? I know my buddies 07 Vee has the...
