    Hi all. I have a question which applies to all bikes. I know my bulb is a 55w H7 that’s fine. What I’m looking for isn’t about the brightness but rather the range of the light. The stock bulb that came with my Vstrom 650xt was an Osram candle light colour but it had really good range lets say...

    Temp outside is 92F, went for 2 hr ride, the tire and hub are very warm. Its not too hot like silencer, i can put my hands on it but it feels like 60-70 degree celcius. Like putting hands on sunny day concrete. Is is so because of asphalt heat being transferred? or what is going on? The front...

    While swapping my old rear shock and spring for an even older (but with much fewer miles) DL1000 assembly I heard a ping as something metal fell on the ground beside me and the mystery of the nut began. This thing has had me scratching my head for the last few days and I can't seem to figure out...

    Hi guys, New member. I live in Europe but found this site pretty great to try my luck here. Have been riding cb500x for about a year now (new rider) and would like to swap it with a Vstrom 650 (not something above, doesn't make sense to me, at least for now). After thorough searching, I...

    Hello all, I recently got a new 2020 vstrom 650 and it find it is kinda buzzy. Even when it is at a stand still it vibes pretty bad while I rev it up or at idle. It’s not horrible but it is enough to make my arms tingle after a bit of riding. The dealer said its normal but doing some research on...

    I bought my 2019 V-Strom 650XT Touring model brand new with zero miles. A short while after the first service, I began noticing a strange rattling noise that appeared to only occur when the speedometer read 51 mph on the dot. The noise is best described as a loose washer vibrating at high rate...

    Hello together, I'm desperate because I've been trying to get a front rim for my 2014 wee since 4 weeks but no supplier can deliver the part. The part is currently everywhere back ordered and nobody can say when they will become available. Also when I search for used parts I cant find any...

    I bought a vstrom 650 2005. The instrument cluster is working, it lights up, everything else works but the tacho and speedo. Done some digging and I found there is an unattached cable. Its running from the speed sensor on the front wheel and leads to knowhere. Can Anybody tell me where it should...

    Just curious, does anyone know why LeoVince does not have an exhaust option for the 2017+ Vstrom 650 models? They have exhausts for the Vstrom 1000's. Given the popularity of the Vstrom 650, I'm surprised they don't have ANY exhaust options for the 2017+ models. 2020 and still nothing. I...

    At this point in time I have no idea what could be wrong with my 2009 Vstrom 650. It currently has 37,500 miles, and I purchased it with 32,000 miles. At about the 36,000 mile mark, I began to notice the RPM gauge showing fluctuations of about 500 RPM. The needle would just not stay in place...

    Hello, I just purchased a 2017 650 xt and am getting ready to purchase some protection for the bike. I live in Utah and plan on riding a mix of fire roads and pavement and possibly some desert terrain. I am torn between going with Outback Motortek and Happy Trails. Can anyone speak from...

    All, I'd like to install the oxford grip heater to my VStrom. I don't want to connect it directly to the battery because I am afraid I can forget the heater on after my riding. As I result I'll get a dead battery. For this reason, I'd like to use the grip heater connector which should be...

    So I was out riding my bike just fine earlier today with no issues. I came home turned off my bike and washed it about five to ten mins later. The bike now no longer starts. Water doesn't seem to be the cause or the issue as I tried again 30 minutes later and again a few hours later and my...
