    I just today purchased a new 2021 vstrom 650xt adventure. It's gorgeous and I'm thrilled to be a new owner! Previously I had a GS and then a Super Tenere but they were both huge and heavy and this bike will much more easily allow me to follow through on my plan to explore non-interstate and...

    I bought a new chain (525), rear sprocket (43T) and front sprocket (JT, 16T) from Blair at SV Racing - as I have done previously with no issue. However when I went to replace the front sprocket the new one (JT sprocket - no holes) does not slide all the way in like the old one (old one has holes...

    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...

    Hi! For the past few years, I've been riding BMW R1100 touring bikes (RT and S) and am now looking to get into some Adventure riding. I feel the GS is just a little too big and tall (I'm 5'9" and 160lbs with 31" inseam) and have heard/read great things about the Vstrom. They are a bit smaller...

    Hey guys, I'm starting to get into some content creation on YouTube. The majority of the videos I'll be posting will involve working on, riding on, or talking on my 2017 V-strom 650. I don't get paid to make these, I simply do it for fun. If you guys enjoy being informed about the new videos...

    Hi there, so I've got my eye on picking up a 2007 Weestrom in the next little bit, everything is in great condition except one of the rims is bent. In other unfortunate news a buddy of mine who has a 2014 with the spoked wheels on it has has a wreck riding offroad. He is o.k. but his bike is...

    Hi All, First post here. I had an accident while out on some remote trails a few weeks ago. Thankfully I'm fine and the bike only suffered cosmetic damage--headlight and lower fairings. I'm going with the X2 headlight for durability and much cheaper service/replacement--I take good care of my...

    First off....I've been lurking this board for a couple of years. I want to thank all of you for helping me make up my mind to get a V-Strom. I sold my Harley Springer Softail Custom and bought a 2012 Vstrom 650 Adventure. I love this bike. It's everything a Harley isn't. Anyway, I'm pretty...

    I already tried swapping the stock exhaust for one from an sv650, but the center stand was in the way and I didn't want to remove it. Just looking for improvement in sound and weight; don't expect much for performance. I'm on a budget and don't want to spend $600-1000 for just an exhaust, and I...

    Has anyone ever planned a meet? I say that we pick a location like Raleigh, Greenville or Fayetteville. Pick a restaurant with a decent parking lot, lets all ride in, have a meal and see if we can't make some riding buddies. If nothing else, we can look at each others bikes and get some...
