SV or TL heads fit on a DL1000??

Hello all,

Just curious, will the SV100 or TL1000 heads fit on the DL1000? Has anyone done this? What about the FI?

Tks, Ed

Just an educated guess, but I don't think so. I feel pretty safe in saying no on the TL, but not as safe with the SV.

difference between tl 1000 r and DL 1000

Does anyone know the difference between engine or computer, or how to get your V strom to 125 hp

An entire engine swap is your best bet. See,79.0.html

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

Please vote in the poll on what Strom(s) you have at

pretty much the same

I own both TLR and 1k strom, that said they are essentially the same. Now I know some of the differences between the TLR and TLS are cast pistons and rods in the TLS and forged in the TLR. I'm pretty sure I never read anything about the heads being any different. So I'd guess that the differences would be similar. I'm pretty sure the cams are different too (not in journal size just the lobe seperation/duration). I don't think the computer matters much. you would probably want to get a power commander so you'll be able to program the FI map accordingly. I'd suggest the TRE, I've read on this site that some didn't notice a difference. But I know it does on the TLR, I just haven't put one on the strom yet. I will say from the outside the engines look identical except the location of the oil cap which is on the 10 o'clock on the TLR and 2 o'clock on the strom. I can't see any reason it wouldn't work, but at the same time I'm not sure they are different either.
