Hi, I'm hoping I can tap into your wealth of VStrom wisdom here..

I'm looking at a 2008 DL1000 with almost 40 thousand kilometres on the clock. It comes with heated grips, rad gaurds, fully adjustable Hyper rear shock, engine gaurds, Leo Vince pipes, adjustable touring screen and appears to have been well loved up to now.

What sort of issues should I be looking at for a bike with this sort of mileage on it, and as I'm looking for a keeper, I wont be looking to get rid of it until I've put another hundred thousand odd km's on it.

Is this feasible with this sort of bike, and what major servicing could I be looking at in the future?

Thanks for any advice you can give.

My 08 has around 36,000 miles ( around 57,000 k.) now. No issues. Fluids, valve check, tires, chain and sprocket. I have had good luck and unless it has been mistreated or not serviced, I know of no issues. I believe you will have some 100,000 mile club members here. Mine has the clutch chutter. There are a lot of individuals here that can give you good advice.
Good luck.
Mike
