  1. General V-Strom Discussion
    Hey just posting to ask if anyone knows the best Suzuki dealer for a full service on my 2012 dl1000 in the tri state area? I live in Brooklyn, NY and have about 25k on the bike. Last service was done at 10k from previous owner. I’ve considered doing it myself but I’d rather have a pro mechanic...
  2. DL650 and DL650A - 2004 to 2011
    I have a DL650A 07 with 63.000 km. At around 50k I had noticed that I had problem switching to neutral when I was fully stopped and the clutch lever had a lot of free play before it would engage. So I used the adjuster nut on the lever to reduce the free play. That fixed the switching to neutral...

    So I recetly posted a warning about how the electrical diagram is reportedly wrong from the Suzuki factory for the 2012 DL1000L2 (perhaps all years, I don't know) regarding the coil assemblies. The story behind this is that I ordered the rear coil (left side of the bike) from Partzilla because...

    I need to buy one of these so I can be sure that the things I'll do myself, I'll do properly. :) Any opinions on whether the Haynes manual or the Clymer manual is better? Or just flip a coin? Haynes Clymer

    Hi Troopers Where would you recommend shopping online for general maintenance parts such as oil, oil filter, break fluid etc. Just going to do the 30K service by myself. Also, any good tutorial on bleeding front break fluid? Thanks Mica

    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...

    Hello all, I am a new owner of a 2003 1000 and love the bike. However, it has some issues, including many that I have seen on this forum. As I am not a very technical person I will need to have someone do the work for me. Is there anyone you would recommend in the Chicagoland area? Any help...
