  1. DL1000A - 2014-2016
    Man, i have been just testing new 2016 v-strom 1000 and I was amazed how torquey this engine is. It has awesome low down torque and power characteristics, better then Africa Twin, better then R1200GS, better then ktm 1190. Suspension was great too, despite of shorter travel then those other...

    Tudor A I bought the Givi crash bars and got one side attached without too much trouble (once I broke free of the much-maligned locktitie holding the four bolts) Now I'm on the kickstand side, and having removed the four bolts here, I'm having great difficulty aligning the bike's original V...

    Hi all, Does anyone know where I can get a hex driver that's long enough to reach up through the bottom of the fork to the bolt that holds the damping rod to the fork tube?
