Damn.  That's some golden Suzuki advertising right there.  They should feature you in an ad or something.

What is the STV actuator?

Secondary Throttle Valve Actuator
It's an electronic motor in a black box that adjusts the positioning of the second set of throttle valves (butterflies) in the air intake according to gear positions and engine rpm.

  I think your sig says it all, and I think you should contact Suzuki and notify them about your bike history and mileage, maybe they'll give you a new one... Bigok

Good for you, though I expect any Japanese bike to manage that if properly cared for.

What I can't get over is the length of your commutes EEK! Why bother wasting that much of your life droning on the highway.

Out here, anything more than a 1/2 hr is considered a lot, and over 45 minutes is nuts.

Riding is wasting your life? He even stated that much of it was so enjoyable that he would stretch an extra our out of the commute, I'm guessing by taking the even longer way home.

If riding is wasting your life then why do you own a motorcycle?

I'm flying home to repair the engine on my 00 bandit 600.  after 10,000 miles on my one month road trip, a spark plug shimmied itself loose and took the threads in the head with it.  Not knocking suzuki reliability, it's my own fault for not maintaining the bike properly.

I expect to get another 50k out of it once the head's back on.  Inlove  3 yrs of sitting though, i'm really hoping the thing still fires up, don't feel like rebuilding carbs while i'm home.

Congrats on rolling over 200k.  Send it to honda, make them cry that their korean counterpart does it as well as they do

I'd contact suzuki.   Good chance their engineers would love to see this engine.   And they may get you a new engine if they do.  

I have heard of GM doing this to a Caddy Limo driver in Florida.  He had 450,000 miles on the original engine.

It was anything but "droning on the highway".

During the Summer it was HOT !
I swear the temperature in the Holland Tunnel never drops below 80 degrees; even in the winter.
And the GW Bridge is COLD during the Winter.
Also; watch riding on the Pulaski Skyway. If you go down you WILL be run over.

But it was fun riding in on Sundays when there is no traffic. Especially during the Fall when the winds pick up.
Those crosswinds at intersections are FUN ! Smile

Wow, very impressive! Multiple bikes & winter to boot. Hail I got 178k on my sled but that's no BFD for a Conc.

Out of curiosity I'm wondering about hi mile Vstroms. Haven't heard of more than ~135k on a DL650.

WooHoo ! Another 50 !

My odometer displayed this when I got home from work today:





But admittedly it wasn't without issues: Fuel pump + injectors.
Read the following thread if you're interested:
https://www.sport-touring.net/forums/index.php/topic,63110.msg1464895.html#msg1464895

(Probably would have made 300 by now if it weren't for this damn recession and unemployment for almost 2 years.
I hope it makes 300. The cam chain is getting rather loud.  Sad )

Awesome, that's good stuff. Have you replaced the Stator or actuator again since the 200k mark?  

Impressive though, that's a lot of riding on a true sport bike. I'm planning on 200k from the Busa, so this makes me hopeful  Thumbsup
