  1. Fair price on a used 2012 V-Strom 650?

    First, apologies if this post is odd, or if I accidentally break some etiquette I'm unaware of, I'm new to the forum and looking at purchasing a used 2012 wee-strom. The elephant in the room for me is that it's got roughly 30,000 miles, and he's asking $4,700 for it. It's black, looks to be in...
  2. Dl650 Oil Leak from Front Valve Cover?

    Maintenance, Tech and Products.
    35k on my WeeBeast (bought at 30k), and I just noticed the right front side of the engine is covered in oil gunk. Cleaned it off, rode fifteen minutes and checked for the culprit. It appears that the front valve cover gasket is leaking. Everything else seems dry, even on top of the valve cover...

  5. Electrical Problems - No Response From the Ignition

    Maintenance, Tech and Products.
    I was riding my wee home (90F and humid for SoCal) two weeks ago and at a stop sign 2-3 miles into my commute the electronics cut out and would not come back on. There was no response from the ignition (turning the key), with the exception of the blinkers when I turned the key back pasted the...
