I have learned the hard way, everything Rev'it runs a full size too small. I'm 6'1 with a 41" chest and an XL is what fits.
The jacket fits great, flows decent air when the vents are open and is warm with the liners in at 40 ish degree temps.
Anthony touts this jacket as having a pocket for a water bladder... IT DOES NOT. There is a pouch in the back but there is no way to route a tube out of it at all. I was a bit disappointed to learn this as it was a high priority feature I was shopping for, but I like the jacket otherwise so I kept it.

They run small and can scratch the you know what out of your paint.
I'm 6'1 36" waist with a 31" inseam, contrary to the size chart, a Large does not fit... at all. XL fit perfectly.
Word of caution, the inside of the knees are very stiff, very grippy material that has scratched the ever-loving-___ out of my paint. Thankfully I learned that on my KLR and not my brand new NC700X.
Other than that, they fit great, look great and after several rides in 40 degree weather and only the rain liner in, they were plenty warm for me. Very Pleased.

REV'IT! Enterprise Pants The REVIT Enterprise overpants are one of the most versatile products in the REVIT! range. These water-resistant over-trousers dont come with a thermal liner, but instead are designed to be worn over regular street clothes. Thanks to the easy-entrance zipper they can be easily slipped on over boots. They feature two generous pockets, laminated reflection and CE-approved armor at the knees. The Enterprise trousers are the perfect complement to a number of matching REVIT! jackets. PROTECTION FEATURES: Outer Shell: Polyester 600D, polyester rib, wax polyester 600D Waterproofing: Hydratex G-liner (5000mm H2O) Breathability: Hydratex G-liner (5000g/m2/24hrs) Composition: Outer Shell: 100 polyester Lining: 99 polyamide, 1 polyester Protection: Knox Flexiform CE protection at knees , prepared for TRYONIC Seesoft CE-level 1 type B hip protector insert - version RV01 ( sold separately ) Visibility: Laminated reflection at calf ERGONOMIC FEATURES: Fit: Tour fit, regular Adjustability: Adjustment strap at waist, adjustment tab at ankles, short & tall lengths available Features: Short connection zipper, elastic at waistband, adjustable protector pockets, easy entrance zipper, hook & snap front closure Pockets: Stash pockets, slit pockets

Fit was small, very small (for any pant, let alone an Over Pant) and not true to size chart. I have a 36 in waist and a 41 in outseam, measured twice before ordering, which lands me spot on for a size L. They were snug, as in couldn't bend over without fear of popping the snap snug. Also, in the thighs, these fit like skinny jeans. There was no way I was ever going to wear these over any kind of additional clothing. Now, granted I do have larger than normal thighs but still, these were too snug in the thighs and waist. Looking at the size chart, I'm not sure the REV'IT line will fit me at all as I also tried REV'IT gloves, tried a L and an XL and neither of them fit me either. :( I gave it 3 stars because the REV'IT gear looks great, seems well made and has a great reputation, but sadly, just doesnt fit me.

 Shorai Lithium Battery LFX18A1-BS12
Shorai Lithium Battery LFX18A1-BS12
Shorai LFX Lithium Iron Battery LFX18A1-BS12 Shorai LFX Lithium motorcycle batteries are some of the lightest and most powerful replacement batteries available. Most powersports enthusiasts have gotten used to hooking up a tender to their lead-acid batteries, all the time. Shorai LFX have a much slower self-discharge than the best lead acid batteries (1/6 to 1/7, on average), they do not sulfate as capacity drops, and they are the ultimate deep cycle battery. This means that they can still crank your vehicle even if the remaining capacity is quite low. A fully charged LFX can sit for a year or more and still retain adequate starting capacity, without damaging the battery. As such, any vehicle which has no current flowing when the key is OFF should not need a tender. At most this battery only needs to be charged every 6 to 12 months, depending on the use and average storage temperature. Newer vehicles may have a significant draw even when the key is OFF, to maintain clocks and computers, etc. In this case Shorai expects that a few hours of riding per month will be all that is needed to avoid tending. If you know that you will go a number of weeks or months without riding, you can either attach a tender, or disconnect the negative cable from the battery. In any case, during storage you may use the voltage chart above and an accurate voltmeter, and consider recharging when the battery is around the 50 capacity remaining mark, or above. Features: Faster cranking for better starts Ultra light- one fifth the weight of lead-acid batteries on average Holds unloaded charge for one year without maintenance Zero sulfation for longer service life Super-fast recharge rate No explosive gasses during charge, no lead, no acid Military spec carbon composite case Multiple terminal connection options Includes adhesive back foam sheets Factory activated Environmentally friendly 2 year warranty Specs: 12 V- Volts 270 CCA- Cold Cranking Amps 18 Ah- Amp Hours 18 A Max Charge Rate Weight: 2.19 lbs/0.997 kg Case Size 1: 66mm/2.6 x 148mm/5.83 x 105mm/4.13 See Shorai Specs PDF below for full fitment guide Battery Terminal Location: Notes: It is extremely important that you use only the appropriate battery for your bike. A battery with incorrect amperage may damage the battery and your bike. Shorai Batteries require a charging system output of 13.1 Volts or higher at idle and must not exceed 15.2 volts at maximum output. Shorai Batteries may not be a drop in replacement for all bikes, some modification to battery box, terminals etc may be necessary. RevZilla recommends testing and charging all batteries prior to using. Shorai recommends NOT using a charger or tender if it has a desulfation mode which cannot be turned off. Shorai has confirmed that the Battery Tender brand does NOT have a desulfation mode and are OK for use with Shorai LFX batteries. However the best possible charger/tender for the Shorai LFX is the Shorai SHO-BMS01 Battery Management System .

This battery is ridiculously light weight! So far I have been very impressed as it's been installed for about 1k miles.
Note: I have a 07' V-Strom 650 and this battery is notably smaller and I had to fill the battery box with material to keep this battery from sliding around. I used a old Cush Drive I had laying around. Works great.

After several pavement rides and one 3 day off pavement ride/camping trip I can say that I really like this seat.
Install - installing the seat is NOT as easy as the stock seat. It takes some patience and precise placement for the seat to securely slide into place. The bottom prongs are short and shallow. Meaning you have to press down in the seat pan (hard) as you slide the seat forward to get the prongs under the saddle bar. Additionally you have to mind the lower parts of the seat and spread them open to slide over the plastic. So although you may hear and feel the rear lock click, pull up on the front of the seat to ensure the prongs are under the bar.
Although the seat does not slide on as easy as the stock seat, the comfort more than makes up for all of it! With the v-strom stock seat, my rump only lasted 1.5hrs before I would get uncomfortable. I have done 400+ mile pavement mountain rides and 3 day off pavement rides and never once did I get a hot spot or become uncomfortable with this seat.
This seat does sit a bit higher than the stock seat, prob 2 inches or so. With the stock seat (while riding) I could not dangle my legs as the entire foot would lay flat with bent knees. This Moose Racing seat, I can ride down the highway and dangle my legs without touching (I do have to keep my feet flat though - and not dangle feet).
The seat is very comfy and I recommend!

AltRider Skid Plate Suzuki V-Strom DL1000
AltRider Skid Plate Suzuki V-Strom DL1000 Protect the vital engine cases and oil sump without giving up ground clear with the AltRider skid plate for the Suzuki V-Strom DL1000. Constructed of impact resistant 4.75 mm anodized aluminum, this skid plate provides ideal protection for off road conditions. Your exhaust header pipe is also fully protected without sacrificing ground clearance. The oil cooler is well protected while still allowing optimal air flow. Made with the riders convenience in mind, the skid plate can remain installed during oil changes on the center-stand or side-stand since the relief is cut so oil can be drained while the bike is upright or on the side-stand. Included with the skid plate is a redesigned rear bracket that allows for easier installation and more overall strength. The skid plate matches up perfectly to the V-Strom crash bars using hidden fasteners for a clean, finished look. This product is also available in silver. Take a moment to watch the installation video (click the thumbnail to the right). Youll see everything that comes with your purchase, the tools youll need to complete the installation, and tips and tricks to make the process easier. Seamlessly integrates into V-Strom crash bars Made from 4.75 mm (3/16 inch) thick lightweight anodized aluminum Protects oil cooler without restricting air flow Full exhaust header protection Change your oil without removing skid plate Finished in your choice of black or silver Hidden fasteners Known to work with the SW Motech center stand Note: You may need an extra set of hands during installation to help you hold the bike upright if your V-Strom isn't equipped with a center stand.

This skid plate was purchased because my previous skid plate could not take the beating I was giving it. I bent the snot out of it beyond repair.
Because of the off road riding I do, I need the beefiest plate I could find. This AltRider is it. The mounting system is as it should be! Its somewhat easy to do the initial install. The mounting bracket under the bike is not the simplest to get to. It takes patience and u-joint socket of sorts but it went on without too many curse words.
The plate is very stout and has already proven to be the right choice for my riding.
If you need a gnarly skid plate to take a beating in rough off road conditions, this is it.

Frankly, the only reason I bought these bars is because I wanted the AltRider skid plate (which only mounts to these bars).
The fit and finish is great. Well it was when I bought them. I have since dropped the bike, lets just say several times and the bars did their job. The paint is scratched up but the bars themselves are without dents or scrapes.
The only complaint is price. Things are spendy.
High quality product but it better be for the price. =)

These work great! Easy to install and adjust. I have an 07' wee strom and did not have to replace any lines. However, I did somewhat reroute the brake line as it was a bit too tight for my comfort. I was able to remove it from the line holder that mounts to the front frame and tie strapped it to another wire bundle. This provided plenty of slack.
About 50% of my riding is off pavement, so being able to stand taller and more comfortable was worth every penny.
Also, I have the Moose Racing seat (which raised me about 2.5 inches over stock seat height) and I'm very happy to have the bar risers!
