Traitors Corner / Re: What have you done with your bike today?
« Last post by mr_diver on Today at 13:05:12 »
There was always a massive back order for wheels with Honda. Sometimes going back months. Speak to Honda customer services uk. They will light a fire under the dealer.
The spokes have always been stainless, but they have upped the stainless grade twice now and are still having issues. Problem is most owners are treating the bikes like they would with alu wheels and not cleaning the spokes meticulously.
Some do and yet they still corrode.

If you use high grade stainless they will be too brittle and snap. Honda just don't seem to be able to get the correct alloy.

They should do what Yamaha used to do and resin coat the spokes.

V-Strom specific discussion / Re: Sprocket change on a 2013 650
« Last post by Dave L on Today at 11:08:37 »
Hello,
Here is a link to some soft ware that could help you:  https://www.gearingcommander.com/

Personally I am considering going up 2 teeth on the rear sprocket when I change. I did this on my SV 650 and it improved drive out of corners. It did move the revs up by about 250 rpm in all the gears but this was not an issue. My thinking for my 2015 DL is if I can move the revs up slightly I can benefit from the increased torque available.

My tyre dealer told me the pr4's in all sizes and  types are discontinued. I had to get a road  5 rear. My Suzuki dealer has 4's but want to much, they even have 3's.  Out there if you look I guess
