    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...
  2. 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...

    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...

  8. 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...

    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...
