vee

  1. For Sale
    Brand new, never installed. The packaging was damaged on the FA231 (right) set, so they're zip-tied together to keep them protected, but the pads are not damaged or contaminated. I've tried them all, and these are my favorite brake pads. I've found that I prefer the black "organic" compound...
  2. Maintenance, Tech and Products.
    Probably a long shot, but...if anybody local to Northern Cali happens to have that tool, I'd love to buy or borrow it from you! That bent rim I got also dented my steering head bearings. I already have new tapered roller bearings, but don't have the tool.

    Please delete if it's redundant. Love this site, it's been a great help! I have finally hit one too many deer on my '12 Vee and insurance has decided to total it. I started with a heavily used 06 Vee and within a year went for the '12 (2 years old showroom floor) I loved both! This last one...

    Hey Guys and Gals, Newbie to the forum, I've been on bikes for as long as I remember, only recently got a reel "pull" towards the open road. I have been looking at buying a Vee because I think it is the best bang for buck, everyday, everywhere bike you can buy, but I have some weight related...

  7. DL1000 from 2002-2012
    So ... Last week sometime I asked (yet another) KLR question, basically comparing it to the Vee offroad. Thanks for all the replies. I've since gotten to ride a couple and I've also made a determined effort to spend some time with my relatively well-farkled Vee in the dirt ... here's some...
  8. DL1000 from 2002-2012
    I'm wondering why there is no ABS option available for Vee? Talked to the mechanic-owner at the dealership where I bought my bike and he told me that even if it might be possible to buy the DL650 ABS assembly and install it on DL1000, the problem would be the ABS computer that programmed for...
  9. Stromtroopers - New member introductions
    Hello all, I am an avid rider and I ride everyday, no matter the weather, hence the name. I currently ride a 2009 KLR650 but it just isn't enough for me. I have owned it for a year now and have put 8000+ miles on her. I try riding 2-up with the Mrs' but it just doesn't have the power to go, and...
