    DL1000 from 2002-2012
    I've been having intermittent stalling problems and some surging in my '03 Strom. Had the fuel pump replaced, no improvement. It's been suggested I get a new ECU...$1600!! So some questions.

    Before I get into the details I'd like to provide some information on my bike. It's a 2014 non-adventure model with just over 4,000 miles on it.

  4. Stalling Issue

    DL1000 from 2002-2012
    I purchased a 2005 DL1000 last Wednesday and it has been fantastic, so much so that I have put about a 1,000 miles on it since then. It was running like a dream. It did not have a battery tender cable on it, so I removed the battery terminal screws and put one on. The next day on the way to...
  5. Advice for TPS adjustment/replacement and other maintenance

    DL650 and DL650A - 2004 to 2011
    Recently my bike (07 DL650 Non-ABS) began to bog down, stall, etc. (all the bad TPS symptoms). I adjusted the TPS with the engine at operating temperature and had the computer register -C00 at idle and then with the bar at the top at approx. 1800 rpm. It smoothed out my ride, but I still have...

    Hello friends, My DL1000 did not have any issues so far (9000m), but a month ago I was riding about 20m and stop on paytool and the bike went off.

  9. TPS help!

    Maintenance, Tech and Products.
    Vstromers, hope you don't mind a newbee following up on one of your older posts. I was on my new (used) DL1000 12k miles in 49 to 50 degree weather. Rode about 1.5 hours with a bunch of it at low speeds on dirt roads (rpm 3k ish) when the bike began to lose power then surge. It would stall...
