    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...
  2. DL650 and DL650A - 2004 to 2011
    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...

    Hi, a fresh V-Strom 650 owner here! Just checked and adjusted the valve shims and during this procedure I did as the manual described and rotated the engine assembly by using the generator rotor bolt, but it suddenly loosened up? I read in the manual that it's supposed to be torqued at 120Nm so...

    I'm looking to chain my chain and sprocket as I rode 15,000km last season and I'm not sure how many km the chain and sprocket had on from the previous owner. I'm looking to keep the OEM 15T front and change to a 45T back so that I can keep up with my riding buddies. I was wondering if someone...
  5. DL650A - 2017+
    Hi All I have bought a brand new DL650 XT in March 2020 and absolutely loving it over my GSX650F. My only issue I have is with my pillion. On my GSX I have never had any issues with leaning or accelerating with a pillion, with my Vstrom I’m having problems. When accelerating it feels like the...

    Hi there. I want to share with you my experiences with a DL-650 I bought a little over a year ago. I bought the bike at a good price due to its 100.000km on the clock. The plan was to buy it and use as a daily run around with occassional trips ~500km every now and then. I decided not to do much...

  9. V-Strom Modifications and Performance
    Hello crafty veterans. As I'm sitting in the house, cooped up and bored... I've been browsing the forums, learning, bookmarking, going off to see how to videos for maintenance and upgrades and trying to learn a lot. I have been mesmerized by the varied upgrades that many are putting on their...

    Hey guys, My k5 650’s rear shock adjustment is stuck, and the shock itself looks like calling for replacement. Can it be serviced? Or should I just go on ebay, and try to find one in better condition. I heard the dl1000 one is a good option, is it?
  12. DL650 and DL650A - 2004 to 2011
    I posted a while ago about a problem my 2009 DL650 has been having for the past 2,000 miles. The VStrom has 38,500 total miles on it at this point. In short, the bike will suddenly experience a drop in RPM (extremely noticeable while riding) and then the power immediately returns in what seems...

  14. DL650 and DL650A - 2004 to 2011
    Last week i bought my first Vstrom, a 2007 DL650. I bought it used with about 20k miles on it. Was out riding the bike around (about 200 miles), then when i was climbing a hill the engine died. I still had power and the dash was on. Initially i tried to restart the engine, but to no avail...

    2006 DL650. I took off the front sprocket cover to replace chain/sprockets and found this wire connector, apparently not attached to anything. It's about 7 inches long. I couldn't find anything that looked like it in the Suzuki service manual or in parts diagrams or sprocket-removal videos...

    Hey everyone, I am looking for advice on which rear tire to get for my bike. Currently, I ride on Bridgestone Trail Wing TW 152 Radial F which lasted about 6K miles but now I am wondering if I should try Battle Wing instead or stick with the same I have. Can anyone explain in simple terms the...

    Hello all, I've recently wanted to update my front turn signals but have found that the previous owner has had fun dropping this bike onto the bits that stick out (i.e. turn signals and plastics). They replaced the front signals with a semi flush mount type signal that I think don't stick out...
  20. DL650A - 2012-2016
    I was riding back from dropping a kid off at school and the bike just quit on me (in a construction zone, of course). I was able to fire it back up but it would quit again if RPMs dropped below 3k. I was luckily only a few blocks from home and coasted it most of the way. After getting home...
