Picked up a 2005 DL1000 the other day! Only 20,000 miles on her. It needs a little cleanup and a front tire (already arrived!). Looking forward to racking up some mileage soon once I get the bike sorted out.

Can anybody make a recommendation for the best size Cee Bailey's Perfect Strom windscreen for me? I'm 6'4" and I have the MadStad bracket. Chart below from their site says the tallest, but I'm not sure I need that since I have the MadStad. Plus, I don't want it to be a monster if I can avoid it. Any advice much appreciated.

21" for most riders 5'6" and under
23" for most riders 5'7" to 5'10"
25" for most riders 5'11" to 6'1"
27" for most riders 6'2" and over

You'll be fine. It's only for adjustment. When the axel nut is torqued it holds everything in place.

PC 5 Map

Anyone got a good map for a 2003 DL1K. Stock muffler with K&N air filter.
Power Commander 5

I am getting lots of hesitation in low RPM but my studder at the 4k mark is gone.

Open to advice.

Hmmmmmm..... If '09 was the last year imported in the U.S. then why have I seen at dealers 3 different times, "Loaded" DL-1000's (with bags & stuff that say "Suzuki") in 2 different dealerships (1-Tx. & 1-Ms.) with Late 2011 build dates on the frame sticker?
Just curious.......
