    2007 DL1000 Second Edition Build

    Hopefully this showcase will be a good place to document all the changes I'm making to this new bike as I bring over all the stuff from the old one. Current Image of the Bike:
  2. DL650A - 2012-2016
    I was watching a video of some hacky mods a guy had added (mostly in regards to wind deflection) and I thought "Gee, that could easily be printed... I can't be the first person to think of this." Do we have other users who have found some decent prints? The only thing I've seriously considered...

    What are your thoughts on buying a an older bike with desirable mods over buying newer with less options for the same/similar price? I've been looking around and I see nice '09s with top and side cases etc going for the same price as '12+ with no extras. I'm leaning towards the older bike with...
  4. Stromtroopers - New member introductions
    I started riding about 5 years ago. I have been through a number of rides and I think I have finally found what I want. Very happy now that I have made it mine by: changing handle bars, adding throttle tamer, installing Hepco_Becker crash bars, adding Givi bash plate, Givi center stand, Givi...
  5. Maintenance, Tech and Products.
    Hey everyone, I'm looking into building a raspberry pi trip recorder mount for my Wee. I already built the trip recorder that logs video, GPS, Temp, Speed and some other things, but I'm having a hard time finding a place to mount it without hurting my wee :(. I don't want to drill or use...
  6. DL650A - 2012-2016
    Hopefully someone here can help me out. This weekend I received my Givi E55 and brake light kit. Installing the case itself was a breeze. Hooking up the brake lights- meh, not so much. I'm not an electrician, nor am I particularly savvy with wires. Problem 1: wires on my 2013 Dl650 are...
  7. General V-Strom Discussion
    Since I'm planning a long trip and don't want to have to hunt & scavenge for food while im travelling I've been looking for cheap outside-the-box farkles. Some sturdy wire shelving for a luggage rack, hiking gear as luggage, etc. Cruise controls are expensive and I may have found an alternative...
  8. General V-Strom Discussion
    A lifetime of biting off more than I can chew has set me up for a new adventure. In September ill head off on a 5+ week trip across America on my new strom with a couple friends on HDs. In order to have money for the trip, I limited on my farkle budget. There are plenty of farkle threads but I'm...
  9. General V-Strom Discussion
    I went with the 650 adventure right off the bat to get the big things out of the way- namely the luggage. With these cold spring mornings here in the mountains of nc, i had to get a set of hand guards, decided to go frugal and get the oems off eBay @ 60.00, maybe ill have some bucks left to get...
  10. DL650 and DL650A - 2004 to 2011
    First ride today (70* in Montana in march???) on my '09 Wee abs, after 3 months disassembled in the garage! So many farkles added i can't count them. I even dove in head first and did all the electrics myself! Today i couldn't believe that there was no "bzzt, bzzt" shorts or electrical fires as...
  11. Techy World! GPS, Electronics, etc
    I'm trying to get a cheap GPS for my wee. It needs to have turn-by-turn directions and I'd prefer something waterproof and mounts well, but the only "need" is directions. I've been thinking about getting a used Garms GPS V, but have concerns that memory isn't large enough to hold many maps at...
  12. DL650 and DL650A - 2004 to 2011
    I’m about to buy a used Wee, and it’ll be my first. Would someone be able to provide me a checklist of (or link to) the farkles recommended for a Wee to ride on rough/gravel roads, including a long trip in general? I’m planning a tent camping and hiking trek from CA to Prudhoe Bay, Alaska...
