Info on the DLR turning lights, please.
So is it a plug and play? Or does relays have to be changed due to LED? I hate it when the turn signals blink faster than normal.
It comes with a full describtion how2do it. The most difficult part was to dissemble the front indicator lenses...
Hello I'm interested for the Led lamps but I have not found some one with a good beam of light.
p.s Sorry for my Bad English.
Go for the LEDs from Bikedesign (Google on it) Not the cheapest, but well worth it.
Palmer screenadjustment mounted to the bike today. OK, being 2,04m tall it still isn't 100% perfect but I recon that I won't come any closer to perfection. Full review in the Varadero International FB group (see below for link)

Hi @Flagman ;
Unfortunately the 'cover' on your bike is just an cosmetic accessory. There is no quick-lock tankbag system, unless you use a bagster tankcover (which I use, brilliant in my modest opinion), or a system for which you can mount a lockring on the fuelcap. Can't remember the brand, but I am sure Mr. Google does.
I'm using this one.
You just select the tank ring that fits your bike.
These fit perfectly on mine.
Probably the wrong place to be asking this question, But I am looking for anyone else in USA (Please not Canada) with a Varadero. I knew of a few people years ago but lost touch and am curious if there are any others hiding int he darker places here in America? I have two of these beasts and am considering trying to sell both. Thanks in advance... Strey1100
I have been looking for another Dero, after owning two of the earlier released models when they first came out. I found this Gem of a bike with very low km's (16K) on it and a deal was struck.
It is being transported to my home now, and will be converted to a sidecar during my post spinal surgery recovery project. I still reckon these things are one of the most comfortable rides around and really suit my tall frame.
First post here in the Jap section. Usually in the 1150gs forum.
Picked up this '08 yesterday. Been parked for 5 years near the sea,some of that time was outdoors,under a cover. Its pretty corroded underneath. Nothing that some time and effort won't sort out. Its a heavy beast compared to the GS.
Hi Guys i have recently picked up an 2001,has a few issues i sorting,but could do with some info.on the bottom of my carbs there are two drain hoses from the float bowls,they run to a Y piece and then split into a hose that has a hook bend in it that i cant see where it should attach,and another hose that runs out to drain. Can anyone shed light on if the hook shaped hose is just a vent? Does it attach anywhere? Or can i do away with it..many thanks
All hoses under the carbs/tank/radiator/battery etc are drains and they should all converge somewhere under the engine. Not a very big thing.

Ok, you've got punctures and punctures but this one is from the extraordinaire departement.
Barely left my village...
Part has been identified as an 'Volvo Truck Brake Path Sensor Bracket'. Who would think about that.
OK... Now I was as happy as a dog with two willies with my new combined LED rear / brake light, una grande problemo: because of that LED my cruise control no longer works ...
Contact with the manufacturer in Australia ... LED lamp can stay, but then I have to install new wiring harnas. Its not the cost, 17, - Aussie $$. Where then 20, - Dutch €€ in shipping costs are added ...
Shortcut (whats in a word, lol): put back the traditional lightbulb and cruise works again like a Swiss watch. A happy ending after all ...
