World's Edge Shock Review tomorrow evening @1630AST
I'll apologize if this has been discussed already, I can't find that part of the thread.
So far I've only used the Suzuki OEM oil filter on my DL650. Does anyone use the K&N filter?
I'll be there!
I have in the past. Why do you ask?
No specific reason.. just wanted to make sure they're a viable alternative.
Not I, I don’t like the quality control on K&N products so I shy away from them if I at all can.
I Added SW Motech recently and they don't seem to vibrate. Haven't had it above 60ish with the new bars, though.
Anyone know if the ABS software can be updated so it doesn't activate below about 3 mph? Especially the front? Annoying that it keeps letting the bike roll in loose gravel.
After changing the bolts that I think were the problem, I wrote that vibration was 90% gone.
Well, that was a quick test ride on the street. After 160 miles today of various conditions including some gravel roads, I found a TON of vibration, at various RPMs and speeds. Like a harmonic, it comes and goes.
But I don't think it's the bars themselves vibrating through the mounts. I think it's a plastic vibration in the fairing, because I hear it more than feel it. At some speeds and RPMS, it's really bad. I think it's the fairing actually contacting the bars at some point(s). I'll have to investigate and isolate the problem..
Edit: I found the front crossbar between the engine bars was 1/8" from the fairing, and vibration probably made them touch. I adjusted it, and will take a test ride tomorrow.
Yes, and HiFlo filters too with (same as K&N) and without the nut. They all work well, but that nut makes removing the filter easier.
More range feedback.
To review. if the fuel image and the last black block are blinking in tandem you have about .5 gallons of juice left.
It also has a count down of miles left.
Yesterday, I got fuel with 8 miles to go. The last black fuel gauge image was not blinking. I put in 4.75 gallons of juice, so I had about .55 gallons of juice left.
I had her on the center stand due to how precious fuel is here in the Outback. JK. Gas stations are all over the place in my A.O.
I had way more than 8 miles to go. But, I'm glad both were not blinking cause I had over .5 gallons left.
Also, the max amount of range that showed up after the fill up was 340 miles. I road around for nearly 30 miles before the number started to go down.
Have a great week.
Just random photo of the bike from today. Had her for approx 2yr now, about 8km.
I don't know about software updates but why you just not to turn it off when you going off road?
8000km in 2 years? Seems like she is a garage queen...maybe that's the reason she looks so good though.
I didn't think we could turn ABS off? Traction control can be turned off and I do when off road.
25,000 in two years and this was a slow year, second Vstrom and still lovin it.
Did pickup a DR350 for some of the backroads stuff this year though
Yes you can and it's pretty simple. Stop the bike and put it on the center stand. Start it up. Go to 2nd gear and rave it a bit till you see ABS icon on dashboard. ABS is off. Don't turn the bike off. Continue riding. ABS will be off all the time until you turn the bike off again.
37000km since I put it on the road exactly 1 year ago in September 2019.
Nice trick, thanks! Hoping to still have ABS above a slow walking speed, though. I guess not.
nope. It's either on or off as any other bike with ABS.
