Another shock rebuilt option
I have a Givi tanklock quick detach on my 650.
20L bag. Micro adjusts for and aft some.
Best and easiest tank bag I've ever owned.
Kappa is also Givi luggage just with less visual bells and whistles. Built the same just not as sparkly.
I have Kappa bags on my bike, built just like Givi only cheaper. Kappa has tanklock too.
Part of the Wee Brigade now. Picked up an 06 for $1k off marketplace!
Now to find a cheapish set of crash bars and a skid plate for it. Lol
Ha, yea "cheapish" - otherwise your farkles will end up costing more than the whole bike!
Good luck and welcome to the club.
It is a stand that slips over my frame slider to lift the back wheel off the ground, lighter than a centerstand
Are more photos of it if possible please.
I have a 2015 V-Strom 650 XT. I am wanting to purchase a center stand. Previous owner installed a GIVI skid plate. Does anybody know if the Suzuki OEM center stand fit with the GIVI skid plate? Or is anybody out there running a GIVI skid plate and have a center stand that fits without interfering with it.
I have a Givi Skidplate with a SW Motech Centerstand on my '12. No interference.
Ok having a problem with the signal 15A fuse blowing. Seems to happen when i crank the bars to back into a parking spot. I took off the side panels and the tank, turn on the key, cranked the bars, could not get it to replicate. Anyone know what all is on that fuse? I noticed i couldn't get my grip heaters to come on. They are plugged into the factory connector. Are they only powered when the bike is running? I knew they where at least on the key. Also shook and wiggled all the wires attached to the handlebars while powered with no results. Any ideas? Hard to troubleshoot with it not replicating in the shop. It has happened twice this last week. I have replaced the fuse and ran for a couple of days with no problems and then boom.
SOUNDS LIKE A DEAD SHORT,trace all the wiring for said blinkers before you melt it down
Pretty much everything runs on that fuse, incl the grip heater connector. Check out a wiring diagram for your year and model.
I'd start near pinch points
And individual blinkers if there is any indication they have been replaced
How’re you guys liking the 2017+ V-Strom 650s?
Considering a 2019 650 XT as a replacement for my XSR900 and so I can do 2-up touring with the wife.
Just an update on mine. I found a broken wire in the right heated grip. Not sure if that would cause the issue since it is the middle of summer and the grips have not been on in months. Time will tell if this fixed the issue.
I haven't ridden the XSR, but seeing that it's a naked bike, I think you'll find the V-strom 650 infinitely more comfortable and better suited for 2-up.
However, if you and your wife are large and heavy, and plan to lug around a substantial load up steep, high speed mountain roads, you might find the power of the 650 marginal.
Do the first gen DL1000’s eat wheel bearings? I replaced the rear about 6-7,000 miles ago and just finished a 1,400 mile 2up trip with the bike loaded heavy and I’m hearing a whine thats pitch increases with speed. I installed Anakee 3’s before we left which are slightly cupping. Can the tires be the cause or do I have another wheel bearing going out?
Front wheel has no movement, rear wheel had a tiny bit if I had my hands on the top and bottom of the tire and put some muscle into it. Rear brake is not dragging, chain slack was set per service manual.
Also, what tools are required to swap the bearings?
