    I've started to pum my forks back together and realized that I don't remember what way spring came out. Does the tighter wound end point toward the top or bottom?

    Hi :) I'm fairly new to motorcycling and I bought a 15 year old DL650 K7 ABS with 18k miles on it in summer that I have been quite content with so far (well, except a broken TPS). The last report of the safety inspection required by law in my country listed a notch when moving the handlebar...

    Hello all! Wiring my husband's gps, and decided to use his aux plug. Ordered the connection pigtail off eastern beaver (as hubby doesn't wanna cut off the stock plug and solder). Got an email from Eastern Beaver that there are covid restrictions barring them from using their usual shipper. I...

    Hi, I have a rubber hose underneath my rear brake lever, that I'm not quite sure what's for - I was thinking it was overflow for something, but I couldn't quite think as to what. Does anyone know what it's for?

    Hi, How long can you ride before the 1000 km service? Is it okay to ride 1300 km or should it really be done around 1k? Thanks in advance!

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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?
