  1. Custom rear carrier with backrest

    V-Strom Modifications and Performance
    Just joined the forum and decided to post the project I just finished up. The position of the givi mounting plate is waaay too close to the passenger and I don't particularly find their backrest pad very comfortable. So I decided to design a system that is completely adjustable in that the...
  2. Tomtom rider mount and 12V connection

    Techy World! GPS, Electronics, etc
    I just bought a Tomtom Rider GPS. I had one on the Goldwing and bought another for the V-strom. I hooked up the mount to an unswitched 12V supply coming from the battery (powerlet outlet). When I checked at the mount I was expecting a 12V reading but found 5V instead. That tells me the mount has...
  3. Top Case mounts

    DL1000A - 2014-2016
    Hello all. I have a non adventure DL1000 and want to install a top case on it. I know several manufactures make specific case mounts for our bike. I was wondering if the universal mounts that GIVI or Shad supply for all there cases will fit on the rear rack of the 2014 Beak Strom. Anybody...
  4. Loose Front Caliper Assemblies

    DL650A - 2012-2016
    LOOSE FRONT CALIPER ASSEMBLIES Last night, I was doing my usual "pre-flight walk-around" ... I discovered that both front caliper assemblies have "some" play ... This is just a very slight rattle, when torqued by hand ... I had a flashlight but it was not readily apparent how to tighten ... I...
  5. How do I mount my Givi Monokey trunk?

    DL650A - 2012-2016
    here's the thing. I had a '12 DL650 Adventure, and I had my trunk on it. I sold that bike about 6 months ago. Then I got to wishing I had kept it, so I went out and bought a '13 DL650 Adventure. I want to mount my Givi trunk on this one too. I have had this trunk on many bikes, and as a result...
  6. SW Motech Mount and Garmin Montana

    Techy World! GPS, Electronics, etc
    Has anyone used the SW Motech Vibration damped GPS mount (sold by Twisted Throttle) with the power cradle for the Garmin Montana? I just want to make sure it all works together before I pull the trigger. I currently have the GPS mounted up with RAM mounts but want to cut out the vibration and...
  7. Hyperlights install

    General V-Strom Discussion
    I've purchased the running/brake/signal tail-lights from Hyperlights. It's my understanding that the farther apart you have them, the bigger you look and it helps with depth perception for cage riders. So, I'm thinking of mounting them on the outer edge of my Givi trunks. What bugs me a...
  8. iPhone Tank Bag?

    General V-Strom Discussion
    Looking for a tank bag with a window that will allow me to touch through and operate my iPhone 5. Motocentric's won't work. Joe Rocket Hammerhead might, but it's unconfirmed. Anyone doing this? Thanks!
  9. Which Givi top case mount plate for Glee

    I know a lot of you use Givi monokey cases on your Glees. My question for you is which mount plate did you use a why?:confused: There are three options I have found. They are: 1. GIVI SRA3101 MONOKEY TOPCASE FITMENT KIT RACK - $143.00 This is a bike specific rack that is aluminum, also the...
  10. GPS Mount Options

    DL650A - 2012-2016
    I'm interested in the Twisted Throttle SW-MOTECH Detachable Vibration-Damped GPS Holder (Suzuki V-Strom DL650 '12-) for use with my iPhone 4S. There isn't any detail as to what the optional Cellphone/iPod holder (large or small) looks like. Has anyone purchased this mount? If not - does...

  12. signal adapter plates

    V-Strom Modifications and Performance
    ok, from a previous thread where one of our aussie brethren found these adapters on downunder ebay, after some checkin around i found the main site to get these, pretty cheap, might be handy for mounting up replacement signals on our rides, of course when they have more in stock that is...
