    Just purchased this set for $10 on Amazon. Because I like the Red.. feels dangerous... :sneaky: lol Anyone have experience with these? I'll update after I have them cut.
  2. V-Strom Service & Maintenance Questions/Discussion
    Hi all, As I went to unlock my luggage, the whole cylinder came out with the key. From what I understand there is a bolt that holds that and a cam in place that probably backed its way off. Unfortunately the box is stuck locked and my wallet is inside. Does anyone know how to fix this problem...

    Just got this bike last week and I am loving it. But the key is really hard to turn in the ignition, especially to get it in and out of the "Lock" position. I put a little bit of graphite in and it seemed to help a little, but thought I'd check here first before I put more in. Any ideas on how...
  4. V-Strom Service & Maintenance Questions/Discussion
    Hello Everyone, I have a 2005 650cc V strom. I went on a ride today and dropped my bike at a stop (I'm still learning how to deal up hills). Other than some scratches, the bike seemed fine.

  7. General V-Strom Discussion
    I went over to my local locksmith and tried to have a couple of extra keys made but ran into an issue. The blanks they had for the previous generation are shorter than my 2012 key by enough that I wonder if I could get it into the steering lock position (since you have to push it down and...

    I would like to make the keyed ignition unnecessary. 1. I never use the accessory or steering lock functions. 2. Occasionally I leave my key on and drain the battery. 3. I haven't lost a key, but I know it is just a matter of time. 4. The ignition is starting to get sticky. 5. I ride over...
  9. DL650 and DL650A - 2004 to 2011
    Hello there, I was wondering if anyone else here has an issue with getting their key into the ignition - like me :confused:. Everyday when it's time to get going, it will stand there like a shmohawk trying to turn the key to the 'on' position. Now, I am not an idiot, and I think I have...
