    DL650 and DL650A - 2004 to 2011
    After sitting for a year and a half, I decided to get my 06 Wee going again. Layoff was due to a bad hip, got a new one in March. When I parked the bike in an unheated garage, I changed oil and filter, lubed the chain and the usual stuff, and filled the tank with fresh gas and a liberal dose...

    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...

  7. Correct idle speed?

    DL650 and DL650A - 2004 to 2011
