  1. DL1050 from 2020 - ?
    It seems that I've misplaced the flat gasket (see picture) in the adjustment knob mechanism (XT) during the installation of an aftermarket screen. Can anyone kindly tell me the diameter and thickness so that I can buy a replacement? Is it metal or rubber?
  2. 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?
  3. 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...
  4. 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...
  5. 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...
  6. 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...
  7. 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...
  8. 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...
  9. 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...
  10. 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...
  11. 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...
  12. 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...
