  1. V-Strom Service & Maintenance Questions/Discussion
    I need to replace my chain, sprockets, and brake pads on my 2009 Wee. I have the parts, but my trusted shade-tree mechanic has been overwhelmed by his day job and has no time (even to ride!!) Dealer labor rates are too expensive for me. I know there are lots of how to videos etc. available...
  2. Texas Troopers!
    I'm a newbie to this forum; I'm a touring bike owner that just picked up a 2008 DL 1000 as my second bike on Saturday; it needs some basic TLC (a tune up, oil change, and maybe a valve adjustment). My jaw is still on the floor from the estimate I just got from Cycle Center of Denton. Any...

  6. Maintenance, Tech and Products.
    Greetings, I bought a WeeStrom in Santa Rosa, CA but there isn't a Suzuki dealer here. My former all around mechanic sold his place so I don't know where to go to have basic maintanance and repairs done without a long drive. If anyone can help me out it would be greatly appreciated. I will say...
  7. General V-Strom Discussion
    Hello all, As my title says - I'm looking for a good knowledgeable motorcycle mechanic or independent person who can check over my Wee to make sure everything's up to spec for safety and regular service. I'm located in the north Orlando suburbs, can travel about a 30-mile radius of downtown...
