Accessories and After Market items / Aldi 4x USB charger port
« Last post by King Orry on Today at 12:40:57 »
This could be a handy addition, looks to have a decent cable length and a couple of reasonably ‘fast’ charging ports.
Could be good if your socket is under the seat etc.
Cheap as too  :thumb:

Some other good stuff in there too like the Touring kit.

V-Strom specific discussion / Re: late DL1000 advice wanted
« Last post by wurzel on Today at 12:27:38 »
   It is now a recap, so no fuss anymore, just go to your dealer, you have to expose the ECU, which is under the seat tray, the serial number on the ECU needs the last 3 digits to be 002, not 001 or  000, it's is easy enough to check, but ask the dealer to confirm.
  The electrical connector blocks under the tank, on top of the radiator, can corode in time, and are best sprayed with ac50 or such like, and even shrouded with a bit of inner tube over them, just a good precaution if you will be a winter rider.
They are a good sound bike, mine has been ridden hard and done some long trips in bad weather, no issues, if you get a nice one I'm sure you will be content.

When you say the 02 version, do you mean the 02 version ecu? If so how do you tell?

The glee pic looks the best one, even though I prefer the "classic" bike.

The main one that springs to mind is the ECU issues some models have (There's a massive thread on here). Basically, any ending in 00 may cause issues with stalling. Suzuki will replace them to a 02 version but only if you make a fuss with the dealer/contact them. If it were me, I wouldn't buy one without knowing that had been done.
There were also a couple of recalls on earlier versions, earth relocation and waterproof cover for electrics under the tank (IIRC) so worth checking they're done.
Other than that, most owners rate the bikes highly  :thumb:

Sold my wee back in feb 15 but still had a daytona up till last december.
Thought I'd done with bikes but I'm finding myself strangely attracted to the late vstrom 1000 circa 2015 or newer. Not sure if I'm going to get one but its a possibility....Anyway the point being is there anything I should wary of on these later models?

Welcome Back. Ask a question in the general section as most people don't see intros.
