  1. DL650A - 2012-2016
    I have a 2015 V-Strom with the Adventure package (well, the Expedition package here in Canada). The windscreen has this horizontal attachment on the top that I can adjust. I've attached a picture. What is that thing for? And how am I supposed to set it up properly?
  2. V-Strom Modifications and Performance
    About to purchase a 2012 (orange) Wee Strom. 8,000 miles, super clean with only two mods on it (that I know of) Hepco and Becker crash bars and MRA windscreen. (Check out my albums for pics) The crash bars are in good shape, except for a weld that just seemed to have snapped on the bike. Anyone...
  3. DL650A - 2012-2016
    Hi Guys, I'm actually in the middle of a road trip from Chicago to Las Vegas. Everything's going well, except that the wind buffeting is really wearing me down. I noticed that if I slouch in the seat a couple of inches the wind noise is dramatically lower. Because of this I decided it would...
  4. V-Strom Modifications and Performance
    Thinking of reviving my thin strom project this winter. I have a couple of ideas that might work out but I'll wait until it get too cold to ride so I can justify taking my bike out of service for an extended period. That way, I won't have so many withdrawal symptoms. Anyway, I was wondering...
  5. DL1000 from 2002-2012
    I just installed my new V-stream windshield, not too impressed....... Any tips on how to use this thing properly? Or am I just screwed or did I expect too much? In all fairness, it is a gusty day. Buffeting is somewhat reduced at highest setting, but seems no less than stock screen in the same...
  6. General V-Strom Discussion
    I have a 2008 DL1000 that I bought new last year and I just received the new Cee Bailey "Perfect Strom" windshield. I am having problems mounting the shield due to: 1. The mounting holes on the Cee Bailey are slightly larger than the stock shield, allowing the screw heads and washers to pull...
  7. DL650 and DL650A - 2004 to 2011
    Hi all, I am a new Wee owner - 07 ABS - and am doing the windshield replacement thing. It came with a medium Parabellum which I could not get to work well (even with a Madstad), and just for laughs I tried the stock which was worse, and ended up with a new one from National Cycle that I have...
  8. V-Strom Modifications and Performance
    Love the windshield, hated the shipping. Someone sent it parcel post so it took 3 weeks by boat to Hawaii. So I am 6'5, with an inseam of 34 ish and ride with a Sargeant seat. If I set up straight as a board, I can just see over the top of the shield. Normal postition i look thru the top...
  9. V-Strom Modifications and Performance
    I just bought an 08 DL1000. Unfortunately the stock windshield directs the flow of air right at my helmet--very noisy! (Seemed even noisier than my buell blast which has no windshield at all!) Looking around online I found a lot of aftermarket windshields... Can someone who is 6'2"+ vouch...
  10. General V-Strom Discussion
    So, I winterized my Weestrom, with TKC80's and about 130 studs. Problem is, the stock windscreen with a Madstad in the highest position pushes the air right about chin level for me. (I'm 6'8") What windshield do I want to replace this with? Givi? I've heard recommendations against the...
  11. General V-Strom Discussion
    Been reading the messages regarding windshield turbulence and installed a Laminar lip. I also added a tank bag. I have K7 650 but imagine this applies to 1000's also. Test ride after mods was interesting. Windshield turbulence gone but then encountered MORE turbulence coming up under my chin...
