  1. DL1050 from 2020 - ?
    I've had this issue ever since I got it, and I've learned to live with it. It's a nuisance nonetheless, and I can't reproduce it to show to a mechanic. I'm wondering if anyone else had this issue. After starting the motorcycle and going into first gear, the throttle kept at exactly the same...
  2. DL1000 from 2002-2012
    I just installed a G2 Throttle Tamer tube on my dl1k7. My bike has the typical jerky on/off throttle that plagues these bikes. Installs same as factory tube, so very easy. I do wish the g2 throttle tube had the collar on the inner side like the factory tube does, but not a big deal. I will say...

    So early in the morning I went for a ride. A couple of streets from home I entered the highway and noticed that even with full wrist, the bike was not revving up. I was in 6th gear and about 50ish mph, I went down to 5th gear but the engine was still at 1500 +/- and I even felt was going down...

    Hey guys, New DL1050 XT owner here. Does anyone know if the tension on the throttle is adjustable, or if there might be a drop-in mod to increase it? It's my first ride-by-wire bike... I also own a 2017 SV650 and love the cable throttle on that. - Bryan

    So i started my day getting on my wee and noticed that the indicators dont work which happens sometimes when it rains and it poured for a few days before, so i take the indicator mechanism apart, cleaned out the muck and it was good as new. Then i noticed that the killswitch doesnt exactly go in...

    Bike & Details: 2009 VStrom DL1000, ~50K miles on it, Midgrade fuel w/ethanol. Recently replaced the TPS due to prior stalling issue after long rides. After TPS replace, there was a rear spark plug error code caused by a loose wire. Recently filled the oil, new chain added too. The Problem...
  7. DL1000 from 2002-2012
    I just finished a throttle body synch on my 07 Vee for the first time. It cleared up my off idle, low speed misfire, I'm happy to say, but it did take me 5 hours. The biggest problem was not having a great way to turn the adjuster. I got it done with a combination of long needle nose and a...
  8. DL650A - 2012-2016
    So we've had two weeks to get to know each other - super happy my old riding skills came back after many years on a scooter. They really are different animals. Installed the fork brace and kickstand foot from Rick at Adventure Tech. I'm a little less anxious about that stand folding on me...

  10. DL650 and DL650A - 2004 to 2011
    I recently purchased (for a good deal) an '07 650 from my cousin who hasn't ridden it for the past two years. There was even fuel in the tank from 2 years ago. After replacing the battery and an oil change, the bike started right up. I pumped the tires up and took it out for a ride. It was...
  11. DL650A - 2012-2016
    So I installed Symtec heated grips on my bike. They work great, but they warped my throttle tube and now it sticks. I've contacted Symtec and currently working through a resolution with them. In the meantime, I need a new throttle tube, preferably a metal one that won't get soft and warp with...
