I came here looking for this thread to ask a question. You just answered it.
There's an 06 DL650 for sale with A LOT of extras, for $3,750. It has just under 40K miles.
Looks like I might just get it if it's still there when my bike sells.
Don't think u will be disappointed unless it is not still there!

I am a new wee owner and I have a question. is it normal for the DL650 to have kind of rattle sound (sounds like valves kinda) when accelerating at lower rpm.. like when pulling away from a stop sign.

Mine is an 05.

It is RPM related not speed. Unless you are referring to timing chain. Is there anyone in the Olympia Washington area with a DL650 that could tell me if it sounds like theirs?

If it's sounds kind of like a couple of ball bearings in a tin can, it's probably pinging from being made to lug at low revs and maybe dodgy fuel or carbon build up. Give it a full tank of premium fuel (higher AKI and has better cleaning additives) and see if it still does it after a decent run to clear the pipes.

I think I found an even better one at Home Depot, if all goes well, I'm going to pick it up this weekend and get it mounted. Once done, I'll post up pics. It's uber heavy duty thick plastic, light, hinged, and includes a hold for a lock. I figure it will cost me about $40 for the case and mounts that I have figured out. Stay tuned

Thumb Tires, mostly street?? little dirt?

Just wondering what you would recommend for an early season tire, before I can really get into the mountains and hit the dirt. You know, looking for an 80 highway / 20 dirt long lasting tire? Any ideas?? Thanks

2012 adv bag lock??

just picked up a 2012 adv, the bags are nice, but I hate the idea that I have to use the key to always open them, anybody find a way to modify the locks so the key isn't always needed, but can still lock the bags if wanted?
great bike BTW, coming from riding beemer airheads my entire life, this thing is awesome!

K60 rear
TKC80 front.
They work great on pavement and awsome offroad,plus this combo should last around 12,000 miles!!.I'm at 8,000 miles on this combo on a NCX and the front is worn about 60% and rear around 50%.

So am I the only dufus that adjusted his clutch lever so that the high beams flash every time I pull in the clutch?

I rolled the bars forward and had to adjust my levers and found that the lights were flashing!!!

front axel

I'm trying to replace my front brake lines with longer lines and I have found that I need to pull the front wheel to get that line holder removed from the fender. So I'm trying to figure out how to remove the axel, it has an 11mm hex head and the stock tool kit is of no help. I have an assortment on Allen wrenches but they stop at 10mm. I have scoured the auto parts stores and the funny thing is that 11mm doesn't seem to exist. 7/16 is the same size as 11mm or close enough but it seems hard to come by as well. I will try a metal yard today to see if they have a 7/16 hex rod that would work. What have the rest of you done to remove the front wheel?

short answer - yes !

my 2009 does it and most owners would say these are not the quietest engines ... lots about 'engine noise' over at stromtroopers so chk them out as well, they have videos too.

Thank you NWR. Our city is so small that our Sears is an appliance / tool store and they were closed yesterday. I will give them a try today.
