I'd second checking the valve clearance if it hasn't been done recently. When I checked the valves on my '06 just after I purchased it used with 11,000 miles on it they were all either tight or at the bottom limit.Be sure all the fluids have been renewed. In addition to engine oil, be sure the coolant, and front & rear & clutch brake fluid are new.
--Valve clearance check is important.
I'm starting to think this might be moved way up on the list of things to do to mine. But I think the front suspension work and some ergo improvements will come first.A big reason to add headlight relays early is to prevent failure of the switch contacts and wire connectors which are a pain to get working properly again after being heat stressed.
That is a known error caused by lifting the information from a previous bike and applying it to a DL1000 outline. Check the details in the manual.Thanks but I'll follow my Suzuki Service manual...

Grease will stay on the exposed cable ends. Nowhere in the step by step detail in the manual will it say to oil the cables. Oil will attract dust and make the nice, slippery cable coating worse.
