Used Vstrom inspection checklist

Hi guys, I'm thinking of trading my '08 Honda VFR (or Interceptor as it's called back home) for a '07 Vstrome (or DL1000 they call it here in Hong Kong). I've used the VFR as my daily commute and weekend group rides for the last 4 years and wanted something more comfortable and within the same price range on the 2nd hand market so I don't have to fork out more money.

Would appreciate if Vstrom owners can let me know of any special "high wear" parts that I should pay attention to or anywhere that would show signs of abuse. It's done 31,000kms (considered high mileage here since it's such a small region).

Anyone went from a VFR to a Vstrom or vice versa?

Thanks

Took a test ride and did a hand shaken deal. Looking forward to joining the Stromtrooper army!

The 650 is a much better bike for the city driving you will be doing. The 1000 engine doesn't do well tooling around with low rpms.

Check out my post, below. I'm moving from VFR (though 5th Gen) to weestrom, and have some of the same questions.
