You were hit harder that me if the bumper got came off. One has to wonder about frame or swing-arm damage.

Were you stopped when hit or on the brakes?

Vee cam profile

Hi guys. Does anyone know what the cam profile is on the dl1000? I am looking at installing TL or SV cams in it for a few more ponies. Thanks guys hope you all had a great summer of riding and playing.

TL's won't fit.... machined differently on the retention area. SV's will tho... same blank as the DL's.
Likely not worth it tho.... loss on the bottom for a bit more up top where you likely will not use it on the street & damn sure won't in the slow stuff...
Get w/ Dale @ Holeshot Performance about "degreeing in" the stockers first.... you can pick up a suprising amount just from that
One of mine was 6 degrees off when I checked it....

I first bought a DL 650. The bike was great and fun to ride, but I was commuting 90 miles roundtrip and wanted a little more power. Co-worker had this DL 1000 for sale and I couldn't pass it up. kels.

Any way to change the rear brake fluid without tearing the whole rear of the bike off? The placement of the rear master cylinder was not very well thought out.

Can't you just pump out the old stuff with the bleeder valve as you add new to the master cylinder? That's how I've always done it.

Here is a photo of my new to me Wee. Picked it up two weeks ago. Has a full set of Givi luggage. Enjoy it so far.

so my dad has a 2012 Vstrom 650 Adventure and I got to sit on it and fiddle with it this weekend. I was very impressed with the Vstrom over all and would definitely consider one as my next bike or another bike. :)

question though. The bike has 12 miles on it and threw an ABS light on the dash. Right after it did that it threw a Fuel Injection and check engine light.

any ideas? it goes back to the dealer tomorrow for inspection but I was curious if anyone has run into this. Over all though the bike is still fantastic.:)
