  1. Sheered OEM handguard bolt. Looking for extra.

    DL650A - 2012-2016
    Hey all, new 2015 VSTROM XT owner here. The used bike I just bought came with a Suzuki plastic handguard kit. When I was torquing the left pivot bolt to spec it sheered in half. The parts dealer in my area says that these bolts can't be singly sourced and I would have to buy a whole new kit...
  2. Sw-motech Crash bars and OEM skid plate fitment

    DL650 and DL650A - 2004 to 2011
    Hi guys, I have, what I assume is a oem Suzuki Crash bars and a oem skid plate on my bike... I'm not too happy with the protection and coverage that the oem crash bars are providing. They barely protect any plastics on anything that is not a soft grass laydown. So I was starting to wonder if I...

  4. hard panniers for OEM Rack?

    DL650 and DL650A - 2004 to 2011
    Hello StromTroopers, question for those with more knowledge that me. My new bike is an 05 650 Vstrom, and it has the nice glossy Suzuki hard bags and OEM rack on it already. I'd like to get some durable panniers for the dirt, but it would be great to be able to switch from dirt to street bags...
  5. New style OEM engine bars

    DL650A - 2012-2016
    I have read on various threads about the problems with vibration/cracking with the OEM engine bars and that some dealers said that Suzuki were aware of the problem and we're going to do something about it. My two week old Glee has OEM bars which came with the Voyager package. From the photo I...
  6. Adventure hard bags on a non-adventure bike?

    DL1000 from 2002-2012
    Hi gang! I just bought a 2012 V-Strom 1000 and I am looking to add some luggage. I found a pair of black bags on craigslist that I like. My question is do Adventure model bags fit on a non-adventure model bike? My understanding is the Adventure model difference is one merely around...

  8. Top Case Options with factory rack and side cases

    DL1000 from 2002-2012
    I'm sure there are lots of threads on top case options but when I search on the terms "top" and "case" it says they are "too general" and it returns no results. I just bought an '07 DL-1000 that already has an OEM rack and side cases. Ideally I would like the factory top case so it would...
