    Hello and thanks for accepting my membership. I've been riding since I was in my early 20s in So Cal. Now I'm 40 and live in CT and will be picking up a 2005 DL 1000. The bike is pretty well maintained with a lot of add-ons such as skid-plate, crash bars, and fog lights, platform and luggage...
  2. For Sale
    I'm selling my beloved V-Strom Adventure. We mostly rode it to the NC/TN mountains. It has been a fantastic ride but I have purchased another stable mate for my M109R. I have a feeling I'm going to miss this bike! Charlotte location. My sig shows all the farkles that has been added to the bike...

    Hi guys, I ride a 2018 DL 1000 and I would like to know if anybody has tried the Air Flow seat cover. For those who have no idea what I am talking about www.airflowseatcovers.com . I personally think this is a great idea for those long day rides under extreme temperatures. Apparently it works...

    So due to the fuel shortage, the gas station (QuickTrip) that I go to for ethanol free fuel has been out for at least a week. I found out that the nearby boat marina has ethanol free fuel as well. So I went and bought a tank of fuel from there. The difference between the QT and Marina fuel is...

    Hello! I'm new here and also new to motorcycling. New as in just about to take the basic rider course this weekend, assuming none of my family progresses to a life-threatening condition or seeks a court order to stop it. They're not really fans. But I am! I'm pretty excited. I'm here...

    Bike & Details: 2009 VStrom DL1000, ~50K miles on it, Midgrade fuel w/ethanol. Recently replaced the TPS due to prior stalling issue after long rides. After TPS replace, there was a rear spark plug error code caused by a loose wire. Recently filled the oil, new chain added too. The Problem...

    I bought a new chain (525), rear sprocket (43T) and front sprocket (JT, 16T) from Blair at SV Racing - as I have done previously with no issue. However when I went to replace the front sprocket the new one (JT sprocket - no holes) does not slide all the way in like the old one (old one has holes...

    I had some stalling issues after long rides. Things seemed to be TPS related. After replacing the TPS with a new one, I'm now getting a C33 (injector signal #2 rear) error code. I'm not sure what to do now.

    Not sure of a better term than jerking, but I notice while riding that the bike feels like it's jerking or lurching while riding. While riding in gear, the feeling is like it jumps forwards ever so slightly, repeatedly every second, more so in lower gears. The feeling isn't bad, but it's...

    Hey just posting to ask if anyone knows the best Suzuki dealer for a full service on my 2012 dl1000 in the tri state area? I live in Brooklyn, NY and have about 25k on the bike. Last service was done at 10k from previous owner. I’ve considered doing it myself but I’d rather have a pro mechanic...

    Hi all! Got a question and need a feedback / opinion. i'm riding a 2014 1000. Anybody have removed their thermostat and running on with no thermostat? what are the pros and cons of not having a thermostat? I'm from Singapore. Other than the monsoon season at the end of the year and the...

    Last Saturday I intended to ride to Camden SC to collect an ADVRider tag. I have to do the car rodeo to get bikes in and out of the garage and left the bike idling while I put the car away. When I came back this was under the bike. I've had this 2003 DL1000 since late last year but haven't...

    My right rear turn signal is loose and dangles by the wire. I can hand tighten it, but it's so compact and awkward in there, that I can't get a wrench on the nut and a socket won't work since the wires come through the middle. So, within one ride, it loosens itself back to a dangle. I put lock...

    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?
  16. DL1000 from 2002-2012
    Just got this bike last week and I am loving it. But the key is really hard to turn in the ignition, especially to get it in and out of the "Lock" position. I put a little bit of graphite in and it seemed to help a little, but thought I'd check here first before I put more in. Any ideas on how...

    Hey folks! Just finished an awesome ride around the ADKs and Montreal. Came back and noticed the paint on my '14 DL1000 has some serious scuffs from my Aerostitch Darien pants. I am heartbroken but I should have know. It can be fixed. I am looking for a paint guard film or protector to keep it...

    Happy Friday Everyone! Looking for some protection on my new to me '12 DL1000 and was curious to see if there are any specific crash bar recommendations out there before I make a purchase. Thanks in advance!

    Hello, all. I just picked up my first V-strom this week, a 2014 DL1000 Adventure. Looking forward to getting to know the bike and many of you. I'm based in Mesa, AZ. I've been riding motorcycles since I was a kid (and I'm nothing close to a kid anymore...although I still feel like it)...
