    I've looked through a stack of air horn installations here, but still have a question on installing the relay. Mine came with the horn (similar/same to Stebel Nautilus), any feedback on they way it came wired would be appreciated. My main issue is that the 85 and 30 loop to each other, as I...
  2. DL650 and DL650A - 2004 to 2011
    I posted a while ago about a problem my 2009 DL650 has been having for the past 2,000 miles. The VStrom has 38,500 total miles on it at this point. In short, the bike will suddenly experience a drop in RPM (extremely noticeable while riding) and then the power immediately returns in what seems...
  3. DL650 and DL650A - 2004 to 2011
    I was late for an appointment and thought I'd zip over on my Frau's 2011 (the battery was dead on mine) as it was overdue for a run. It was a little strange that I didn't have a neutral light ...but it started right up and ..well... I was running a bit late. I had forgotten how nice the bike...
  4. DL650 and DL650A - 2004 to 2011
    So here's the sequence of events. I'm doing a long ride from Los Angeles to the Canadian border. 2011 Wee. One night, the high beams were flashing randomly, as if a gremlin was randomly hitting the high-beam switch. Low beams stayed on through all that. But then the next day, the headlights were...
  5. DL650 and DL650A - 2004 to 2011
    Bought a 2011 a few weeks ago, rode it home from seller in the Bay Area down to Los Angeles, been riding it a bit for the past 3 weeks. PO put an LED voltmeter on, and most of the time at decent speeds it was a healthy green. Turning ignition on and starting it was never a problem. Had it out...
  6. DL650 and DL650A - 2004 to 2011
    I appear to be having some electrical issues with my 09 DL650. The majority of it appears to be related to operation of the turn signals. 1) When utilizing turn signals, the bike will sometimes die. Turning off turn signals, cycling the starter switch, and firing up the bike will cause it to...

    Hopefully someone here can help me out. This weekend I received my Givi E55 and brake light kit. Installing the case itself was a breeze. Hooking up the brake lights- meh, not so much. I'm not an electrician, nor am I particularly savvy with wires. Problem 1: wires on my 2013 Dl650 are...

    If you are thinking of a short term wiring solution for your GPS on your '12 650, perhaps this will be of some little use. The post will be updated with the final couple of pics once the solution is finalised. (1) Remove seat. Short term, you can simply run the cable(s) straight to your...
  9. DL650 and DL650A - 2004 to 2011
    Hi, folks, I added heated handlegrips to my 2005 WeeStrom. However, they do not turn off when the ignition is off, so there is a danger I will drain my battery. In fact, I presume there is a 100% chance this will happen. :green_lol: Can anyone point me to a good tutorial about how to wire it...
  10. DL650A - 2012-2016
    I believe I understand where to install the Easter Beaver ABS cutoff switch - to a point. There appear to be two ABS fuses, and I THINK they have similar connectors to attach the switch to. My question is "Which ABS fuse do interrupt/install the switch on? The 25amp ABSMOT (the one on the...
  11. Techy World! GPS, Electronics, etc
    I read a thread already regarding Flash2Pass installation, but didn't see this particular question specifically addressed. I have the Easter Beaver headlight wiring by-pass installed. I'm looking at the headlights, and see 2 horizontal (yellow and white) wires and 1 vertical (black.) I want...
  12. Techy World! GPS, Electronics, etc
    Some have found it necessary to remove the side panel plastic to gain access to the ABS wiring to install Eastern Beaver ABS switch kit. I was able to access the terminal with the panel just loosened in front. Releasing the 25 amp ABS fuse holder from its bracket gives the wiring enough slack to...

    Does anyone know if there are any Wee Strom stator wiring/plug differences between the Australian and American markets? Mine just died after 70,000 km and the Electrosport stators looks like a good replacement. cheers John
  14. DL650A - 2012-2016
    I bought a license plate frame with LEDs for running, brake, and turn signal augmentation. So I have to run a bunch of wires from the license plate frame to under the seat towards the rear where I have Eastern Beaver brake light and running light power, and then to the turn signal wires...
  15. General V-Strom Discussion
    I've purchased the running/brake/signal tail-lights from Hyperlights. It's my understanding that the farther apart you have them, the bigger you look and it helps with depth perception for cage riders. So, I'm thinking of mounting them on the outer edge of my Givi trunks. What bugs me a...
  16. General V-Strom Discussion
    Hello all, I bought the Coocase S48Liter Luxury a few years back for my Tiger 1050. Since then, I have moved onto a DL650 and I have not been able to get any of the functions other than the running and brake lights to work. I don't recall exactly when it quit working, but I don't think it...

    Hey all Going to install bikevis bullets on my hand guards, What would you recommend as the best way to route this cable inside the hand guard and stick it down? glue gun? gaffa tape? some kind of cable clips? what would you suggest? Many thanks, Mal
  18. 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...

    I bought 2 autoswitches back in 09, one was for my R1150GSA and he other for a friend who then decided he didn't want it. Consequently, I have a new in package 5NB2 Autoswitch I'd like to use on the blinker cancel switch. I haven't found a 2012 wiring diagram yet, but on an 09, it looked like...
  20. V-Strom Modifications and Performance
    Hi, Today I purchased a set of driving lights from Walmart. The box says they are Optronics something or others and they are 55w bulbs (I will switch them out for 35's so as not to drain the batter). I removed the reflectors on the front forks and bolted the bracket into that receiving end...
