Definitive Tuning Thread

I have read most of the posts on VSRI about making Derestrictors, yosh boxes, removing secondaries on the DL1000, what boxes, combinations are optimum?

No gurus on this website anymore? Great history on the VSRI website, but a lot of threads have died. There must be some interest in tweaking the DL1000 2012 and prior, but no new info.

John Weldon made that site great. Things slowed to a crawl after he died. It's still a great resource library for the older bikes, especially the Vee.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s
See https://www.stromtrooper.com/general-...nicknames.html

Totally agree Greywolf, you are also an excellent source of all things vstrom, your input is genuinely appreciated. I have been reading everything I can find on this DL1000, and although you are a 650 guru, I have learned a lot from your posts...

Sorry that your friend John is no longer here, he is still a great source of information.

God Speed John Weldon.
