Got the front raised up 1" and the rear 3" (from where it was). No, Mr. HD a DL 650 is not a bar cruiser! Oh, and on the maiden voyage I discovered that the center stand the PO from Madison, WI installed neglected to install the center stand springs. DOHHHHHH!!!!

You'll need all of them.

here's my new beast. At some point an inmate owned it due to the adv sticker on the fender. Only 10 minutes on it and I'm impressed. However the two bros exhaust is way too loud.

It's pretty close to farkled just right. Heated grips, Corbin seat, windshield bracket (mass tad I presume), pciii, mirror extenders with ram ball, shelf with ram ball, motech rack and top case, etc etc.

The Strom is my mile muncher. I'm getting a DR for the rough stuff. The sale of the GS will pay for both...

You, my man, are just getting warmed up. I don't see the fork brace, the GSXR750 calipers or the fork gaiters.... Get with the program.

Brakes, definitely. That's on my immediate shopping list. Fork brace is already on it, did I forget that in my list?
First is trying to track down a very irritating rattle in the dash. Then full service, then brakes.

Once you get that squared away we can talk about clutch chudder and your rear sprocket carrier bearing, but I don't want you to worry about this stuff all at once.

Mine kinda vibes at 4700,not sure what else is probably wrong with it,but yesterday I rode it 150 miles part of which was on muddy pothole dirt roads,I stopped and filled my body with unhealthy greasy food in a town called Hayfork,then I rode it like I stole it all the way to Redding and when I rolled in the garage I thought damn I really love my V Strom

Gentlemen, Are there any groups dedicated to the V-Strom?
I'm thinking along the lines of HOG, MOA, Gold wingers and the like.
Thanks
