    A little while back, I noticed my oil had turned milky - I changed the oil and started noticing the bike was running hot, so I also changed the coolant (unfortunately not checking coolant levels before hand). Since changing both, the bike has started overheating at modest RPM (>60mph+ for more...

    I just damage my engine last week riding in Icelandic highlands. It had only a 27.000 km on it and I am told it's very expensive to repair and I should try to find a used motor. Unfortunately I am not the engine expert so therefore I am scratching my head over couple of things: What year of...
  8. DL1000 from 2002-2012
    Hey guys! I'm not sure i can explain what has been going on with my V but i'll try. I spent some money on a mechanic trying to neutralize the famous clutch chudder. After replacing the rivets on the plate and adding spacers on the springs, it reduced the chudder but not completely. I now...

    Hi all. I would like your opinions on engine noise please. 2 days ago I traded in my Kawasaki W400 for a 2012 vstrom (Japan-market model) here in Japan. I guess there are very few mechanical differences apart from sprocket/ratio etc between Japan / Euro / U.S. models. Whilst my W400 had a...

    I recently purchased (for a good deal) an '07 650 from my cousin who hasn't ridden it for the past two years. There was even fuel in the tank from 2 years ago. After replacing the battery and an oil change, the bike started right up. I pumped the tires up and took it out for a ride. It was...

    Why does the mototune breakin suggest using 2nd, 3rd, and 4th gear? Why not just 2nd? Or 2nd and 3rd? The reason why I ask this question because I have lots of streets where I can do 30-35 mph, and 2nd or 3rd would keep me in the ideal RPM range. But not sure if the higher gears are used to...
  14. DL650 and DL650A - 2004 to 2011
    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...
