headlight

  1. DL1050 from 2020 - ?
    So I’ve pulled the trigger on a new 1050XT, while ridding home I find that overall headlight aiming is on the low side....for the life of me cannot find a point of adjustment Hoping some of you guys have a good idea as to how. Would be greatly appreciated. Cheers

    I had ordered some led lights for the headlights from a local repair shop but apparently their shipping is going to be extremely slow. I need to order from a bigger chain so I’m wondering what the best bang for buck H4 LED bulbs for the Strom would be? thanks!

    Hi all. I have a question which applies to all bikes. I know my bulb is a 55w H7 that’s fine. What I’m looking for isn’t about the brightness but rather the range of the light. The stock bulb that came with my Vstrom 650xt was an Osram candle light colour but it had really good range lets say...

    Hi troopers! Actually I am new here and if there were such topic earlier - drop me a link please, i couldn't find it in a search line( I bought a 2020 wee this spring, this is my second v-strom , my previous bike was the 2009 650 and it had a perfect bright headlight beam! Eastern beaver...

    I opened up my starter switch because my headlights were out and found what is in the attached picture. There are a lot of threads on the V-Strom about how the starter button is overwhelmed by the headlight current, but I was shocked to see that the wires on my 2012 were so damaged. No wonder I...

    Fast forwarding about 6 years since the last post on the subject of LED headlight bulbs I've seen. Past 6 years have seen about a hundred more manufacturers, no doubt all from China that manufacture OEM replacement LED bulbs for the original H4 Halogen bulbs. I am just curious which brands...

    Good day StromTrooper community. Riding a 2007 Vstrom 650DL. Was heading home after a tennis match, started the bike, turned it around, let off on the clutch and it stalled. Forgot to put the kickstand up... Re-started the bike, went on my merry way. Got to a dark street and noticed I...

    So, my headlights are down. It isn't the bulbs or the fuses, and the small marker lamps in the headlights are still on, the tail light works, brakes and turn signals work.... I had to work late yesterday, and again tonight, so I haven't had a chance to do simple things like verify...

    As the title implies my 09 DL650A has a little headlight problem. Let me start by saying that my headlight issue is NOT from the starter switch assembly on the right side. Its brand new from suzuki and I put it in less than 2 months ago. The headlights flicker on and off and i cant find the...

    Was riding home from work this after noon in the rain. Kids on bicycles crossed in front of me without stooping. I hit the breaks and went into a skid. Did not lay it down, its a Strom not a Harley. I was only going 60km and the roads were not that slick. I have have quick stops in similar...

    Hello there. My headlights have not been working for about a week now on my 650, and I narrowed the problem to the starter button. I have opened it up, cleaned everything up put it back together and nothing. If I press down on the starter unit itself (the white enclosure with the 4 wires...

    I'm used to riding motorcycles that have the headlight mounted on the forks, so it turns and points wherever the tire points. (500cc cruiser and 225cc dual sport) For those of you who went from motorcycles with a similar headlight setup to a V-Strom with its fixed position headlight that...
  13. DL1000 from 2002-2012
    I did some searching here and have not seen a picture of what I need. I took the left handlebar switch apart because me low beams quit working. After checking the fuse I figured this was the next logical place to start. The second time I took it apart I was in a hurry and did not make a good...

    Searched a little and couldn't find the answer to this question. I don't do a lot of riding at night, but found last night that my headlights dim slightly at stops. With clutch pulled and a little revs, light gets brighter. When I take off, light is brighter. No pulsations or flickering...
