Hi all!! I'm new the strom tl1000. Can anyone recommend a good service motoshop? I am experiencing the 3 big problems of the Strom already (ie engine stall at red light, over-vibration during pick-up and astmatic exhaust after I took out the damn noisey SuperTrapps).

 

I went to motoshop friend reccomend but I think may be abit too expensive for me.

most likely your tuning have gone out of sync...

try retuning the bike...ur bike is most likely tuned with the supertrap exhaust..

just need to retune back with your stock exhaust...

 

about the over-vibration...is it normal for V-twin engines?

i've been encountering this also...

 

for the bike shop, u can try loois motor..

I'm game for that.............anyway I cannot understand why motodium must close so early. Pple after work 7plus PM earliest, I called Looi's and MtotTechnik and both closed already! Like that we working people must waste a Sat morning/afternoon going down and rushing with everyone................sigh

 

And the biggest joke is I also see some goondoo student types ALSO going down on weekends to rush with we old uncles............those r so free on weekdays but must choose weekend to cheong with us.............haha.............mysteries of life

i own a dl650, k4. bought in 2004 july from looi's motor at 16k.

 

great bike, no problem, no hiccups.

 

i have added a main stand, engine guard, grip guard. just changed my spocket set and both tyres, cost me $720.

 

used to ride it for 1.5 yrs but stop recently as i drive more on my new car. it's now my weekend bike.

 

intent to keep the bike for life, even if i hav to add another one.

 

milage is a good 25km/litre on SLE/TPE. 22km/litre on start/stop traffic.

 

it's love at first sight. tall windshield, high seating position, huge fuel tank of 22 litres, big body like the 1000cc, good looking fairing. you either love the look or hate it. i am sure not more than 10 pcs on singapore road. more will go for dl1000 instead.

 

pick 650 over 1000 due to maint. cost, fuel cost, road tax and insurance...

 

it's powerful.

 

what i still love about the dl650 after these while...

 

1. high seating position. great visibility. give you great confidence on the road. can get in between jammed traffic easily.

 

2. high windshield. you feel that every trip is a touring trip. the wind actually gets behind your back like the st1100. i adjusted the windshield to the highest. great comfort.

 

3. great look, big bike. i never washed the bike since the first day, and it still look new. it has the look of a dirt bike and tour bike, and street bike, off road... you feel like sitting on a big buffalo which has a rocket speed. you don't feel tire riding this bike. it has lots of power for you to explore. good cruising speed btw 90-110km/h. look good with a givi top box.

 

4. fuel saver. a powerful yet nimble bike, save my pocket. one tank give a milage of more than 500km.

 

what i don't like about dl650...

 

1. the seat is too high. it took me 3 f**king months to get use to the high seating position. when i occassionally ride on it, it still take me a while to build up my confidence all over again. nearly scrap the cushion to reduce another 2 inches. it's a japanese bike built for angmoh.

 

2. the bike is too huge. the top is too heavy with such a big tank, plus the fairing. i tipped the bike a few times in the beginning. so i added a set of engine guard at the bottom to balance up. now it makes the bike heavier. sh*t. but one good thing is that this bike is built to tip. no signal light or other accessories were damaged when tipped. nowadays, i tip confidently without fear.

 

3. numbness experienced by the right hand. got use to it eventually.

 

4. heavy top and fairing catches side wind. start to vibrate above 120km/h due size of the bike, may be. it should fall apart if it reaches 160km/h or more for 10km.

 

despite all these. i will never part with my dl650.

Makes me wanna go and trade in my Deaville for one of these... :sweat:
