I'm not a 100%sure which it is yet..has the dl sending unit and the 3 nutted connections on flange though. Not sure there is any difference besides sending unit type. Thanks so much for pointing directly at the resources I need. Waiting on parts to make any more progress.
Any part numbers stamped on the fuel pump by any chance?

Can't help you with the Power Commander. The only thing I know is that it sits between the ECU and the injectors, increasing the amount of fuel injected at certain power/RPM combinations. On a stock DL1000 the engine should run OK to OKisn (depending on who you ask) without a PC so a normal first troubleshooting step would be to deactivate the PC and take it from there. But in your case, do you know what sort of ECU you have? DL or SV?

As of yet I'm unable to make a definitive distinction. I am however getting better at kicking myself.

I think you need out figure out which ECM you have. If I remember right the 02 bike was a 16 bit, while all SV's were 32 bit. You should be able to track part numbers and figure out if he switched to the newer bikes 32 bit. My DL was an 04 with 32 bit, so I used all SV electrics. The origional fuel pump was used and with the PC made 106 RWHP. It was a blast to ride, and 8 years later I still kick myself for letting it go. Too soon old, too late smart. 😪

So I got the fuel system all cleaned out and performed an external filter bypass mod and all seems well. It must have been suffering partial cloggage before I ever got on it. Full flow now lets me know it's a significant sleeper. Hafta be pretty careful to keep the front wheel down. I stripped down the electrics but have yet to discover if that took care of idle power drain. Looking forward to some new tires and some side cases to be nearly good and geared ready to go through a few tanks of fuel. cheers. Also will be looking for crash bars and skid plate on the used market. cheers again.

I like all the color changes from black to silver on that bike (looking at the pictures on the thread @Gert linked). If I had the time and spare cash, I think my red 2006 would look great with stuff redone like that. Hmmm...🤔🧐👍🏽😎

I'm so new to this I don't necessarily see all that is unique about the bike. I'm starting to see that it is nice in multiple ways and after I get over the 'once bitten' bitterness of having been stranded by it on my first ride, I think I'm gonna end up liking it. It came with 3 extra seats, none have any tags so I have no idea exactly what they are. I'm not a big guy so I put on the slimmest and definitely like it better than the others. The nicest quality one was on the bike when I bought it, but really doesn't suit me. I'll take some photos of them all and maybe y'all can help me figure out exactly what they are. They're up for grabs.

Little update: This bike is a helluva lot of fun but not exactly inexpensive to ride. I've put 6k miles on with 2 long hot heavy trips to the Mecca riding in Southern Appalachia. Went through a Shinko 705 in less than 5k...just put on a Road 5 Trail to compare it with. And if anyone has definitive info on the technical differences between the road 5 and the road 5 trail I'm all ears. Only getting 30 mpg and thats around town light and cross country hilly and heavy. Best thing about it is the suspension I think with the wilbers and the Axxion ak-20. Could prolly definitely do with lighter spring up front for light riding but loaded heavy is perfect just capable of a lot more weight handling. Gravel riding has to be cautious. My trips have been about 2000 miles each but include about 250 miles each way of straight slog making time getting there riding. The very hot 90 degree plus temps are probably a great contributor to my short lived 705 rear. High speed buffeting keeps me mostly off the freeways and I'll need to improve that with either a madstad set up or laminar lip and ears or something I'm open to suggestions but I DO NOT want to hafta look through a windscreen all the time. I'm interesteed in riding other v stroms to compare.

That's good mileage for a 705.......in particular on that bike, I couldn't get much better on my previous 650.

Well, I hope to get more than that on my new sticky michelins. Seems like a tire every 3 months is...a lot.

I found this post on an SV forum and laughed and laughed...

I need horsepower between 4000 and 7000 rpm, so that's why I get litrebikes. I purchased an SV1000S shortly after posting the above. Been riding it for 6 years. Best bike I ever owned, actually it wasn't complete when I bought it new. Yoshimura and Heli-Bar made it complete. The SV1000S is quite different from the TL. The DL is like a wife who is faithful, and a good cook, intelligent and fun to talk to. The SV with Yosh pipes is like a wife who is faithful, and a good cook, intelligent and fun to talk to, with a supermodel face and a great body, and good in bed. By contrast, the TL is like a coke-jacked latex-wearing hooker with a knife in her boot. Time of your life, but...
