I got a Secdem shield last June. The shield is 53cm tall and 44cm wide( across the back. I have the bracket set in the lowest position and the bottom bolts were replaced so I could use 12mm spacers under the bracket ( I used a dremmel tool to cut the fairring plastic to give clearance and allow the bottom of the bracket to be raised) I also added 3 x 3mm rubber spacers under the bottom screws that hold the shield on. This rakes the shield back a lot. I also added a Black plastic edge to the shield to help "trip" the air flow and brake up some of the turbulance.
This configuration works very well for me. I am 5'11" with 33" inseam. I easilly look over the top edge. The air flow is very quiet and comfortable around my shoi full face and I usually keep the visor half open. I have about 10 000km with this shield and I am quite pleased.
I think all the shields are similar in profile to the stock shield and they are the wrong shape. The top part of the screen is steeper than the bottom. I think it should be straight or curved the other way.. my opinion.. not worth much.
The screen is good, you will still have to "play" with it and adjust it to fit you. It was less expensive than the US based products. It is available from a Canadian distributor ( in Quebec). Service was good, Delivery in about 3 weeks.
I want to save anyone thinking about mounting one of these Ravetech GPS mounts on their 2017+ V-Strom 650s, which cost $48.17 with shipping on ebay.
I waited exactly one month for the mount to arrive from Thailand and upon arriving I mounted it on my 2019 V-Strom 650XT Touring. Once I had it...
I've seen a few people asking for a set of plans for the DL650 so I've gone through the process of creating a CAD file which can be used on a CNC machine to cut out the bash plate or simply used for the measurements and angles.
Hey all, I am in the market for a replacement battery for my Wee. I've greatly enjoyed the benefits of Lithium based batteries in my off road bikes, but the benefits for that application are significantly greater than for a Wee since (a) the weight savings is a more significant portion of the...
I have a 2012 DL650 with OEM heated grips. The only two times I've used them, the left grip gets really toasty and the right one is only luke-warm.
Has anyone else had this problem?
Are there any suggestions for troubleshooting?
I'd like to take care of this before the weather turns.
