  1. DL650 and DL650A - 2004 to 2011
    Used but great condition SW-Motech Engine Guard for the V-Strom 650. All hardware is included for mounting. Came from a 2009 V-Strom 650. Upgrading to the 2019 XT Touring which already comes with one. Asking $210 Email me if interested: [email protected]
  2. V-Strom Modifications and Performance
    2018 V-Strom 1000XT Curious if anyone's done this before. I don't like how low the SW-Motech Crash Bars are... and the Givi Crash Bars seem to be at least at a 'decent' height. BUT the Givi Skid Plate is HORRIBLE imo because of how much variance there can be on the skid plate. As in, I've seen...
  3. DL650 and DL650A - 2004 to 2011
    Howdy, Has anyone here tried the SW-Motech gear lever on a pre-2011 Wee? I'm having problems finding fitment/compatibility info on it, outside of the manufacturer stated 2011- fitment. The typical search keywords yield mostly sales sites on Google and general gear lever discussions on forums...

    I have an on-line subscription to ADVMoto magazine and just received a notice the latest issue was available. Now truth be told, there really isn't much inside most of their issues related to "our" bikes as they cater more to the hard core adventure motorcyclists, Dakar types, RTW folks on...
  5. DL650A - 2012-2016
    I just wanted to answer some questions I had remaining after reading the 10,456 crash bar threads I found before I installed my crash bars. This is all regarding the new Sw-motech bars and a 2013 strom. I had no issues removing the OEM bolts- I guess warm sunshine was all the heat they needed...
  6. DL650A - 2012-2016
    Anyone have comments about how the SW Motech skidplate is mounted? I am thinking about getting one from twisted throttle, but I am unsure of the mounting scheme. I don't think I like the concept of having to remove the side case screws. It seems a better design would be to tie into the crash...
  7. Maintenance, Tech and Products.
    Confused on what adapter I should use for the Givi E45 as a topcase. Confused about adapter differences between Givi 528 and SW-MOTECH. Not sure if I have a choice between E528 or SW-MOTECH Toprack, or if the SW-MOTECH can only be used in conjunction with the SW-MOTECH adapter. Just want...
  8. DL650 and DL650A - 2004 to 2011
    Well I have done some of the popular mods and wanted to offer my opinion now that I have used them for a couple of k-miles... Oxford Heated Grips (~$75) like them overall. It's a bit of a pain having to hold the button down for 3 seconds to turn them on/off but they get nice and toasty and I...
  9. DL650 and DL650A - 2004 to 2011
    So after some hemming and hawing, I attacked my Motech Bash Plate farkle. PLEASE NOTE: This was done adapting the SW-MOTECH Bash Plate to my GIVI Crash Bars on an '06 Wee. I didn't like the adapter system included for the Motech Crash Plate that I bought from Twisted Throttle. The Adapter...
  10. General V-Strom Discussion
    I like the concept of being able to take off my luggage racks when they are not needed. So how many of you, that own and use the SW-Motech Quick-Lock sideracks, worry about them when you park for lunch, or shopping or what ever. I have seen the you tube video and these things come off fast...
  11. General V-Strom Discussion
    I'm not sure is this is the best sub-forum but I know I'll get the most eyeballs here. I'm trying to install some siderack mounts I just purchased. I need them installed for this weekend. Or so I think. I bought SW-MOTECH Quick-Lock EVO sideracks: SW-MOTECH Siderack The EVO carrier is the...
