If anyone needs help with maintenance tasks up to and including valve adjustments on the 650/1000 my garage is open for help. I've done 8 or so 650 valve adjustments, and 3 on the 1000, and have most of the tools you need to do any routine maintenance job that a vstrom might throw you. The only thing I have not done short of rebuilding an engine is front fork seals (don't have the tools or practice). Send me a pm if you need help. I'm in the northwest suburbs and have a small heated and well lit area to work in.
