    DL650A - 2012-2016
    Hi All again, Sadly, due to an unknown bug (identified now as Forum-COVID-20) in the StromTrooper system, my original post (and login details) were deleted. I had written war and peace regarding the issue, but I will give the five minute version. Problem: Once warmed up, the bike would bog...
  2. Sourcing TPS in Canada?

    DL1000 from 2002-2012
    I am pretty sure that my tps is failing, since my k3 started surging and stuttering a lot at low rpms after warming up. It was also stalling if I was ever not on the throttle. Is 13580-02F00 the right part number? Does anyone have a good source for the sensor? The cheapest I can find it is 100...

  6. TPS adjustment

    DL1000 from 2002-2012
    Installed new TPS. Having a hellava time adjusting it. Sometimes, after adjusting, the line on the dash moves upward after snugging down the screws. Other times, the line will be in the center after getting the screws tight. When I test it, the line moves up with the throttle but doesn't move...
  7. 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...

    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...
