  1. Maintenance, Tech and Products.
    Okay, I have 2005 V and she was running like a champ yesterday. Today, after a bath I was unable to get her to start. I checked the engine cut off, as it's no the first or last time I've tried t run a bike with it off. After reading an older forum I plugged in my clutch line that had pulled...

    Hello All, Well I looking for a few ideas of what to look at to fix my issues outlines below. History: I have a 2006 650 Strom with 42K on it currently. I have owned it since the early 30K's. The guy before me was doing a lot of off road riding with it on ORV trails and decided to get rid of...
  3. Product Reviews
    Powerxross Glove So many of you may have read about my 2013 Klim Inversion Glove review I did previously. Well, as stated in that thread, as happy I was with the comfort, styling, and warmth of the Inversion glove, the quality of the Velcro Strapping was lacking. (I had to replace them under...
  4. Maintenance, Tech and Products.
    First of all, I apologize if this thread is in the wrong section--I didn't see a gear section although I may have missed it because I am so damn cold...which leads me to... I just got back from a 70 mile ride from Los Angeles to Palmdale, CA. I took Bouquet Canyon road (a steep twisty canyon...

    Hey Everyone, I am a relatively new rider and I always abide to the master rule - ATGATT (armoured). In all honesty, I can't imagine anything else as that has been my habit since the beginning.:thumbsup: I also wear a high visibility ICON jacket over the top of my riding jacket. Here's my...
  6. V-Strom Modifications and Performance
    Hey all, I've had a 2005 DL1000 for a year and REALLY WANT to like this bike, but it seems to have problems that I cannot resolve. Can anyone recommend a skilled shop or mechanic in the DC area? I've had new brakes, tires, chain/sprockets, air filter, plugs, TBS, and oil change, and I still...

    Hopefully this thread isn't out of place! I'm looking to buy a one piece suit this spring and was initially going to get the Olympia Phantom as it seems to be a good all around suit for a reasonable price. Having spent some time on the boards though I have now read about the Teiz Lombard...
  8. DL650 and DL650A - 2004 to 2011
    Decided to go ahead and fight the family and keep my bike. I know I'm getting Gerbings gloves and jacket liner. Can the Wee handle the pants too or is that asking too much of the battery? I figure with a splitter I can run the jacket and pants off one controller and the gloves on another...

  10. General V-Strom Discussion
    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...
