Yah, I've had a couple. Stuck on top of a big Cal Sci shield.
Had one it on my ST and it blew away in the Banning Pass which is famous for horrible winds.
The replacement I got Mr Lip fitted to the shield, he's in Orange Co, Ca, and I opted to use the plastic screw and nut he offers. It attaches with an industrial looking velcro buttons. I drilled through the button to use the screws.
For placement I rode around with the lip duck taped in place. That was I could stop and reposition and find the optimal place for best results. Then It's just peel and stick with the buttons. Easy-peasy. It's on to stay but easily removed if I want. I can clean/under around it well too.
I'm probably going to purchase a 2019 650 vstrom ( the loaded version) within two weeks. I've not riddin in 15yrs. Is there some threads for people new to the vstrom platform? I don't know much; so I don't want to waste peoples time with dumb,already answered question.
Im looking in to buying a new bike, and a new 650xt is at the top of my list. I testrode one the other day right after I tried the ktm 790 adv, bmw 850gs and the 1000xt.
The other bikes I tried I only tried to compair, Im not in the market for bikes in that pricerange.
I recently purchased the service manual for the DL650 directly from Suzuki, not a dealer. The link from the suzukicycles.com website to the genuinesuzukimanuals.com. The manual I have is the one that is listed as. "2017-2020 DL650A (V-Strom)". On the cover it has 99500-36250-03E.
