    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...
  2. DL650A - 2012-2016
    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...
  3. 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.

  6. 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...
  7. 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...
