I loaned one of those when my Glee was in for recall work.

Brilliant fun and Suprisingly comfortable for the 100 or so miles I done.

Enjoy

V-Strom specific discussion / Re: Airbox snorkel removal

Does the 650 need to breath easier?
Or should I say would it benefit from having a more open airbox?

That's only something I've done on other bikes to improve performance and the gains were very minimal, only worth doing if you are making a whole raft of performance changes. The easy route in this case would be to buy a 1000.

For Sale (Bike related) / 2014 DL650, Red, 9483 miles. 3900.

This was my first bike which I bought after passing my DAS course in May this year. Having test ridden a number of different bike styles since I've realised that a 'naked' bike suits my riding better. I will probably never tour or commute serious distance on a bike.

I am the second keeper, first registered April 2014. It also has a full service history with invoices. I had a Suzuki centre stand fitted when I bought it and also fitted a Givi Airflow screen (original is included). I refitted the original as I did consider a trade in.
The hugger was fitted when I bought it, the original guard is included.
The tyres (Bridgestone Battlax) have a lot of tread remaining.
MOT expires 19th Feb. 2018. No advisories on this one which was it's first.
Two keys & handbooks, all recalls done (incl. stator).

Either reply here or call 0784 088 2226.
Bike is located near Portsmouth.

Cheers.

Ashley.

My V-Strom was my first bike bought before I got to realise quite what I'd want from a bike.
So, I went for this...GSX S750.



Loving it  :lala: , the Strom will be appearing in a classifieds section near you soon!

I am by no means an authority on bike prices, but that looks like a lovely clean low, mileage bike and if I'd known of this forum before I bought the Strom I'd have bitten your arm off.

I paid 6000 for a 2016 ex demo in blue with 200 miles on it last September.
Can I ask where you looked before you bought?

The offer price was too low.

Some people drill holes in the top half of the airbox. I don't get it. It's not a bottleneck and would tend to let water in.
