    Anyone keeping track of operating costs? Cost per mile? I'm trying to see what my budget allows and hoping to get a ballpark idea of operating costs. I know, I can be a nerd. :nerd:
  2. DL650 and DL650A - 2004 to 2011
    Thinking about purchasing a used 2011 650, about 1600 miles, excellent condition.:hurray: Price is $6000 OTD. First, any thoughts on the price? Second, any thoughts on the bike vs the Glee? I know the Glee is a somewhat better bike, bit the Wee just appeals to me more. However, I also have...

    I'm wondering if anyone as done a high fender mod on the Glee yet. I saw this when browsing ADV Rider and love the look. Another V STROM High Mount Fender - ADVrider - Link to original post. So I looked at my glee and the first obstacle I see is no holes in the bottom triple clamp, so no...

    Apologies up front if this 'Appendix' idea goes against the 'the only one' theme of the main Windscreen and Buffeting thread... I'd be happy to move this topic into that thread but it is getting a bit long... so didn't want to clog it up. Happy to rename this if inappropriate too. Following on...

    Hi Guys. I curious about actual range, and the what others have experienced on filling up their bikes. The most gas I've put into my bike was 4.44 gallons. That was after 242 miles and a calculated (as opposed to indicated) fuel economy of 54.50 MPG. Also, I filled up while on the bike keeping...
  6. General V-Strom Discussion
    There is no consensus on short names for different models and years. Anybody can use any name they want. Vee is pretty well accepted for the 2002-2012 DL1000. Wee has been somewhat grudgingly accepted for the 2004-2011 DL650 and sometimes beyond those years. Gee, Glee and Wee2 are most often...

    I have a chance to take some measurements on the 2012 Fork internals on my 650 (can't quite call it a Glee yet..) anyway, I couldn't easily find the info. from the earlier years, but am sure it is out there, and thought there may be some interest to see what is different based on the different...

    I understand the Wee as the smaller V; Where did Glee come from?

    Just received a pair of theses chinese ajustable levers, installed...and removed. The clutch lever can not go more than 50% of it travel. [/IMG]

    I just wanted to say to people wondering what seat to use on their Glee. I just received my Baldwin (touring) back from loren and he also installed a Utopia drivers backrest in it. I put on 100 miles Saturday in 29 degree weather. I am so happy with it i did not want to stop. but it was that or...

    Is there any tricks to removing all the coloured pieces ? I am recolouring the bike
  12. DL650A - 2012-2016
    OK, I found out that "GLEE" has not been taken for a personalized plate in Utah. Would someone else please take this tag so I will no longer be tempted? If I REALLY liked the nickname, I'd jump on it myself...but, I'm still "on the fence" about it. :confused:
  13. DL650A - 2012-2016
    Did a quick search but didn't find the answer i was looking for, so... how much longer is the shock for a 2012 compared to the previous years? I wanted to make my forks a little better so I ordered some Intiminators from Ricor. I saw that they were having a sale so I ordered the shock too. In...

    To all the new owners of the new vstrom. What are your first impressions of the bike and latest impressions of your bike, even more if coming off an older model vstrom? Thinking about moving to a newer bike.

    I've seen a number of people reporting seeing white 2012 DL650s in the last month or two from USA dealers. Check the tenth digit of your VIN. If it is a C, it is a 2012 while a D is a 2013 model year. My Suzuki Pages - FAQ: identification is a bit old but can be expanded to 2010=A, 2011=B...

    Is there a second 12v accessory outlet on the 2012 model? Eastern beaver sells an adapter for a second outlet on the 2012 model. Anyone know where this one is if it there actually is one? Thanks, Barender

    I know theres another top case thread going on, but i'm trying to find the cheapest possible solution for a top case (JC Whitney, etc) And i'm not sure what fits this bike, i'll be getting givi's in a few months, but i need something to get by for now. Any ideas?
