  1. DL650A - 2017+
    2020 V-Strom 650 purchased 7/31/20, 540 miles on the odometer. The last few days when I turn the key the voltage reads 12.0 or less. Today was 11.7. I put approx 100 miles on it yesterday. The voltage while running is >14.0. The battery looks like it was manufactured in 10/2019. Last week I...
  2. DL650A - 2017+
    Hi guys and girls. I have a 2019 650XT, I want to buy auxiliary lights, mid to long range. It's mostly for highway, high speed, nothing technical. So I want something that can illuminate for a good distance, but not the extreme. Does that make sense? I don't know what type of lights to buy, I...
  3. DL1000 from 2002-2012
    Hey, Here is my situation. With my headlights (LED) connected my voltmeter does not read past 12.5 most of the time and if I run the bike like this it will drain the battery and won't be able to start up again later. Voltmeter will drop to 11.9 after running. Without headlights (LED)...
  4. General V-Strom Discussion
    What voltage does your bike typically run at? (According to the dash) Mine often sits around 14.3 to 14.5 volts. I seem to go through headlight bulbs pretty quickly, and I thought 13.8V was more of the "standard" automotive level? Wondered if what I'm seeing is normal or if a regulator or...
  5. V-Strom Service & Maintenance Questions/Discussion
    Hello, I am making my own computer for V-Strom. I would like to know what signal is generated from crankshaft. Does anybody already measure this? I believe there is a Hall effect sensor on crankshaft which generates a specific frequency depends on RPM of engine? But when I went to a garage...
  6. DL650 and DL650A - 2004 to 2011
    This spring I had my mechanic install Oxford heated grips on my 2009 DL650 with 36,000 miles. We connected them to the V-Strom's factory heated grip connector. We tested them while stationary and they worked correctly, but I never had occasion to use them on the road (it being spring/summer)...
  7. DL650 and DL650A - 2004 to 2011
    I have Wee 2007 with 17k miles. Last weekend I used heated glove line kit from Powerlet. The instruction warned that setting the digital controller should be adjusted no higher than 3-4. I kept it at H3 for a while and was really feeling hot spots between my fingers. Reducing to H2 felt like...
