    I don't know if this is a 1000 cc thing, or a V twin thing, but my 1050 loves to shake off its bolts! I was under the impression 90 degrees V twins are calmer than parallel twins, but I'm not sure that's entirely true here. I don't especially feeling vibrations or buzziness in the pegs or grips...

    This was certainly nice to wake up to on Labor Day and enjoy with my morning coffee!

    I'm trying to change the anemic OEM horn on my DL1050, and have bought a Fiamm Freeway Blaster I went to fit it (as an OEM drop-in, I don't want to use a relay), but have faced 2 problems: 1) The stock connection can't be fitted onto the Fiamm as-is, and I have to break it in two (which would...

    Hello Stormtroopers I'm seriously looking at a DL1050XT. But I have to park it in my shed where the door is only 80cm / 31 inches. Can I get it through the door? Anyone with experience?

    I replaced my tires a few days ago at a garage. The nut is torqued to spec. I've been noticing in the past few days that the rear caliper bracket rocks slightly back and forth when spinning the wheel and braking (spinning it backwards and braking, then spinning forwards and braking, this...

    I've had this issue ever since I got it, and I've learned to live with it. It's a nuisance nonetheless, and I can't reproduce it to show to a mechanic. I'm wondering if anyone else had this issue. After starting the motorcycle and going into first gear, the throttle kept at exactly the same...

    One year and 24000 km later and 3 bolts have fallen out while riding. As my warranty conditions require me to service it at the specified intervals at an authorized garage I've been doing that. I check the bolts at home per the manual whenever I work on it. I've lost 1 bolt for the plastic cover...

    Has anyone tried this MC? I saw it on SV Racing Parts I can't find pictures of it installed with Barkbusters. Do I need to manipulate the banjo for it fit? The stock (DL1050) hose passes over the bracket (Barkbusters) that goes on the handlebar, without much tension or flex Any comments on the...

    We all know that things are made to meet budgets, deadlines, supply chain limitations, designed by humans, assembled by humans, etc etc so nothing is perfect and fits every single customer What are things that can be done that benefit longevity (parts won't be available forever) and help with...

    There's a gasoline smell when I cold start the engine, the kind when the air/fuel mixture is running rich. It goes away after the engine warms up. Is this normal? Do I need to have my intakes and valves checked? I'm at 8600 km currently, and getting around 5.6-5.8 L/100 km (42-40 US MPG) doing...

    Has anyone successfully installed risers with stock cables? I bought 2 risers off of AliExpress, one is 20 mm up, and 25 mm back, and the other 25 mm up and 28 mm back... neither fit. The cables and hoses are too short on full lock (even when removing the hoses and cables out of the metal...

    It seems that I've misplaced the flat gasket (see picture) in the adjustment knob mechanism (XT) during the installation of an aftermarket screen. Can anyone kindly tell me the diameter and thickness so that I can buy a replacement? Is it metal or rubber?

    The manual is very clear about the maintenance schedule. However, with my previous bike I had to start doing calculations as I got beyond the listed mileage to figure if my next service is a major or minor one (sometimes it became complicated!) So with this new bike, I've created a spreadsheet...

    This is a guide for making the service interval reset tool that plugs under the passenger seat and allows Dealer Mode. The Suzuki OEM part's number is 09930-83130 (Dealer mode switch). This article builds on the efforts of the contributors in 2020 1050 Service Interval Reset (special thanks to...

    Hello fellow Strommers, I'm at about 1300 km now, and I did my break-in service last week. I talked to the dealer then and mentioned the high fuel consumption I get, and he commented that it wasn't that much and that I must have been riding hard. I do mostly freeway, at about 125-135 kph (77-83...

    Please help! I have about 800 miles on the 2020 1050xt and today the TC light, ABS light, Engine Light and Master Warning light came on. In addition to that, the speedo went down to zero after I got past 3rd gear or so intermittently. I also have no fuel efficiency display. All the fuses are...

    I'm looking for mirror extenders, and one option is SW-Motech (the other being maybe Rick's, other suggestions are welcome). The official website shows SVL.00.505.10500/B as the compatible part for the base DL1050, but none for DL1050 XT. RevZilla and FortNine list SVL.00.505.101 as the...

    My new DL1050 XT came with 3 lock cylinders that match the ignition key. The dealer told me they're meant to be fitted to Suzuki luggage (or perhaps luggage in general). I know Givi makes the official Suzuki luggage, is it possible to fit them on Givi V56 Maxima 4 top case?

    Hello everyone, I've joined this forum to share my thoughts on the new DL1050 XT. It's been 2 days, and I'm still breaking it in. These are my thoughts so far. - History: SV650 2017 (2019), CB500X 2017 (2019-2021), DL1050 XT (2021-?) I loved the SV650, but needed something with more wind...

    Hi! Sorry for my bad english, but I'll try anyway). I had free time between tune bikes, I decided to finally measure my Suzuki DL-1050XT V-Strom 2021 on a dyno. The mot is still in full stock, the mileage is almost 7k km. The motorcycle complies with Euro-5, has modern Mitsubishi ECU, which are...
