  1. DL1000 from 2002-2012
    A few months back I had a minor fall at somewhere between 30-40mph with bike landing on the right side. The crash bars protected the body and I think my cycra handguards saved the handlebars but thats offtopic. For controls Im running a scotts damper, 3.5" risers, and pro taper bars. There was...
  2. DL1050 from 2020 - ?
    Has anyone successfully installed risers with stock cables? I bought 2 risers off of AliExpress, one is 20 mm up, and 25 mm back, and the other 25 mm up and 28 mm back... neither fit. The cables and hoses are too short on full lock (even when removing the hoses and cables out of the metal...

    Hello all! I've been riding my 2016 DL650 for a little over a year now and I've clocked 5000 miles [sorry folks, didn't have gloves warm enough in the depths of winter and being able to handle a clutch seems important]. ;) I had the 600 mile maintenance and changed my oil/filter for the first...

    Hello. I have a 2016 DL 650 V-strom xt. I would like to change my handle bars for more height, The handlebars I'm looking at are Pro Taper Evo Adventure Handlebars 1-1/8" the High version. However I can not find the info on the stock bar size. Are they 7/8 or 1 1/8? Can I put 1 1/8 bars on my...
  5. DL650A - 2012-2016
    Hi All, This is my very first post so please be nice. I have had my 2013 DL650 about a week and felt the need to install handlebar risers, nothing too fancy, just to see if they helped with comfort. I went with a set of SPP variable risers, they basically come with plates you can choose to use...

    A new idea in grips. Turn your present grips into comfortable foam grips with a minimum of work. Simply slip these high quality EPDM foam sleeves onto the existing grips for a great feel. These retail for $14.00 a pair. We sell them for $10.50 a pair and we only sell one size - V-Strom size...

    I have had my 2002 DL1000 since August last year, and I have added a few farkles to make the bike more comfortable for longer rides. So far, I have added: 1. Sargeant Seat 2. Givi Windscreen 3. Heated Grips 4. Grip puppies 5. Throttlemeister Most of my problems have been abated, but I think...
  8. DL650 and DL650A - 2004 to 2011
    Hi I am 6' 2" (185cm) tall and I find the vstrom riding position uncomfortable. I lean forward and arch my upper back most of the time and can't ride in an upright position. I am thinking to raise the handlebar or raise it and tilt it back towards me but I am not sure what to order. If you...
  9. DL1000 from 2002-2012
    I have an 08 DL1000 and love it, but I am at the point where I want to make some additional changes to eliminate my temptation to get at 1200GS! One of the changes I want to make is better handlebars. In my experience the stock bars are too wimpy (flex too much). I thought about an...

    so dont get them, just mounted mine up (that i had to special order so i can't return it) and the rise/width are almost identical to stock but with a good bit less sweep first problem, and i should have stopped right here, with throttle and switch block assembly in place, the brake/mirror mount...
