  1. V-Strom Modifications and Performance
    Hey all, I bought a Zumo XT and need to hook it up to the battery so the mount is powered. I understand that it will remain powered when the bike is off if I don't turn off the system. I plan on simply taking it off every time I turn off the bike. But I'm wondering, do I need to remove the...

    I've got a Monimoto 5 and I've placed it in a neat area underneath the seat and under a side panel but it's not that hard to find, the space under the seat looks quite cramped to start with, has anyone got any better suggestions where to place it? Preferably without needing the take the bike to...

    Knowing how to use a GPS is essential to off-road motorcycle adventures, but only half the battle. We've created this Garmin Basecamp tutorial for off-road riders so they can import, create, and share the tracks they ride.

    I've been looking around for a GPS for my new vstrom, the motorcycle specific units from the major distributors seem pretty pricy. I'm wondering what other people do? Should I suck it up and buy an expensive garmin / tom tom or are there are good other solutions I should check out. Also, for...
  7. Techy World! GPS, Electronics, etc
    In November I picked up a 2012 DL 650, which I love. I also own an iPhone 6. I am wondering what configurations (software, app, mounting hardware, etc) have worked for a budget-friendly gps system that I can use with my phone to find new routes and navigate. On the Texas ADV website there...
  8. DL1000 from 2002-2012
    So I just recently bought a 2002 DL1000 (converted from a Vulcan Nomad 1500 Cruiser) and I just love this bike. It came with just about every accessory that I wanted. But I wish there was a bit more room on the bars to add some extra accessories. I searched around online and found exactly what...
  9. 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...
  10. Maintenance, Tech and Products.
    I'm using a Tomtom Rider GPS and have an Android smart phone. In the past I've used Tyre to plan custom routes and upload them via USB cable from my desktop or a laptop to my Tomtom. However I've been looking for a way to create and edit routes while in the field using just my phone rather...

    What navigation solution are you using on long distance rides? Phone mount? GPS unit? Which models? There must be GPS threads in existence already, but this website's search tool won't accept the three character string "gps" as a valid input. Links/references appreciated.

    I'm about to order a RAM mount, but I have several choices of where I will place the mount (mirror screw, handle bar, above console, etc...). Why do you like where yours is, or what do you suggest?
  13. DL650A - 2012-2016
    I have heated grips wired into the left hand heated grips accessory socket and my GPS wired into right hand accessory wire under the fairing/dash panel. I noticed today that the battery is gradually running down on my GPS, although it shows on the screen that it is charging. In other words, it...
  14. General V-Strom Discussion
    Going to buy a GPS, primarily for gravel roads here in Oregon. In the dual sport World, the handhelds rule (plated dirt bikes). Would I be disappointed in the screen size on a handheld for the Strom on the street? I'm riding 80/20 street to dirt. Anyone out there using a mounted handheld?
  15. Techy World! GPS, Electronics, etc
    Has anyone used the SW Motech Vibration damped GPS mount (sold by Twisted Throttle) with the power cradle for the Garmin Montana? I just want to make sure it all works together before I pull the trigger. I currently have the GPS mounted up with RAM mounts but want to cut out the vibration and...
  16. DL650A - 2012-2016
    If you are thinking of a short term wiring solution for your GPS on your '12 650, perhaps this will be of some little use. The post will be updated with the final couple of pics once the solution is finalised. (1) Remove seat. Short term, you can simply run the cable(s) straight to your...

    Some friends and I are planning a ride to Alaska next summer. Although we are all Gold Wing riders, we plan to buy second bikes for this trip, ride to Alaska, then sell them and fly back. My choice of bike for the trip is a 2006 V-Strom DL1000. Being Gold Wing riders, we also wanted onboard...
  18. DL650A - 2012-2016
    I'm interested in the Twisted Throttle SW-MOTECH Detachable Vibration-Damped GPS Holder (Suzuki V-Strom DL650 '12-) for use with my iPhone 4S. There isn't any detail as to what the optional Cellphone/iPod holder (large or small) looks like. Has anyone purchased this mount? If not - does...
  19. 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...
