Hi all once again some advice please. Will a 2011 650 Vstrom MRA touring screen fit a 2008 DL1000  Vstrom?
Thanks in anticipation of your reply.

Well no joy with the miss fire,  just out a run to check if I've done the service OK and the miss is stilk there! After 10 mile it went away just like before. Must be a sensor fault somewhere but no F1 light on as yet. 
Just as an experiment I removed the Suzuki crash bars cross bar,only two bolts,  boy what a difference,  so nuch smoother.  It's staying off

I should also have added that during the removal process I managed to stab myself in the finger with a terminal screwdriver...

Thanks for the reply.
Had checked that tank saddle already, but I wasn't sure, but thanks to your advice I will consider to purchase it.
I will also remove magnetic option, it was what I feared, thanks for the tip ;)

I have a Zumo 340, one of the discounted ones Aldi were selling last year, and just use the mount that came in the box in the middle of the handlebars.
This puts the unit just below my field of vision which I prefer for an occasional check. I realise some may say this takes your eyes off the road but I think this is preferable to riding to the road on the satnav rather than what I can see ahead with my eyes.
This was brought home to me when working with a highly trained driver on a cross country route and their driving was crap. As an experiment I covered the satnav in the car and immediately their driving improved to what I would have expected from them.
Horses for courses but this is my experience and hope it helps the discussion here?

Advertising here as I would consider a PX
Superb bike, Torquey engine, we'll cared for, fsh, mot until Aug I think but can renew. This is the S model which is supposed to be the better riding position over the ST, but it does have a full faring, which I think looks better than the ST versions. Nice extras include steering damper, lower fairing, Showa shock, custom rear carrier, led indicators, braided hoses. 2nd owner lots of paperwork and documented history. Expandable but not too oversized luggage, plus waterproof covers if needed. 2011 plate 10,000 or so dry miles, Returns 60mpg and a real pleasure to ride. 3900 Portsmouth
