Thumb Wee Strom Thread Index

Seems compiling an INDEX for various models is becoming one way of gathering USEFULL information into one place. I contacted Packmule who said nobody was looking after the V-Stroms yet; so I have volunteered to start an INDEX for the DL650 aka the Wee Strom.

I’ll be following the tried & tested methods used over in Thumpers for their various INDEX threads & yes that includes “stealing” parts from the Intro(s)

If you see a broken link (or no link), please PM me so I can investigate it further & include as warrented

If info works for both the DL650 & the DL1000, it will be included. If you have links to ADV Threads drop me a PM and I’ll get started on populating this INDEX. All links are not equal and I’m hoping for the good links; i.e. those not populated with the Wee is better than the Vee posts.

Please do not send links to other forums, as they WON'T be included.
Links to "Private Homepages" can be included

Since I started looking into creating this thread, I have found some quality general info for other models & think it makes good sense to include those links in this thread.

All External Links will be marked with the following Turquoise note.
External Links! AdvRider is not responsible for anything at these links; proceed at your own risk.

Also, please be aware that this is not a FAQS page. Although QA/QC edits are ongoing in an attempt to not lead anyone astray, people should use their best judgment and if in doubt ask questions! The point of this thread was not to make questions unnecessary; the point is to help end the relentless search for "those" thread links. If you disagree with an inclusion, submit your complaint to the committee.

NOTE: One tip for searching this thread, try using your web browser’s page search function (usually pushing CTRL and F at the same time will bring it up, or try the Edit menu on the toolbar) - it will save you some time. Another suggestion is this: CLICK HERE and then add your search terms to the search and Google will only search this site. It is a great tool for searching this site with 3 letter terms.

Oh yeah, and one other thing that might help us help you:

I read that as "Threat Index" and was wondering what Uncle Larry had done now.

Thanks for the great work, NW.


Adding the index to the Beasts Hall of Wisdom, and unsticking the individual thread.

We'll use this post in the Thread Index to list Ride Reports & Personal Homepages

If you have a Homepage dedicated to your Wee Strom please drop me a PM and I'll add it here. Likewise if you know of a great Ride Report share it with everyone (I'll confess here, I rarely venture into the Ride Reports section of ADV ) Outside links, as noted above, are not the responsibility of ADV nor anyone else participating in this thread

Since there hasn't been a deluge of (complementary) copy-cat thread indexes, this will be re-stickied for a while.


If bike indexes become all the rage, we'll go back to a Hall of Wisdom/master index format.
