DL650 Handguards

I have a question concerning handguards for the 650 and their availability. I have been unable to find them at my Suzuki dealer in Belleville Ontario. Does anyone have a part number or supplier for the wee-strom handguards in Canada? I found a part number on the Suzuki USA site, but according to my local shop it is not a valid number in Canada. I have noticed many Canadian troopers have the handguards for the 650 and I was hoping someone could point me in the right direction. I appreciate any assistance that anyone can offer.

Thanks,

SS

Tony's cycle in Kingston might have some and if not it only took 4 days to order it in for the wife's 07. Give them a call. (613) 389-3552

Thanks Forseti. I'm just north of Belleville so Tony's is not too far away. I'll contact them to see if they can help me out. My 650 -also sleeper grey- is an 07 like your wife's, so all should go well. How well do the guards from Tony's fit your wife's 07 650? Is she happy with them?

Thanks jstephensca. I have only a little experience when dealing with Suzuki Canada, but so far it is not encouraging. The standard reply seems to be "arrival date unknown". I bought and paid for my 48L topcase a month ago and Suzuki's best guess is that it may be here in early July. Is patience really a virtue???

Guess I should have been wearing pants...

Funny how a fellow wishes to spend his hard earned Loonies at a bike dealer, only to find out the riding season might be over before you actually recieve the goods.

The bike part market (especially factory parts) is a joke, a disgusting joke. I live in a rural area, and can order any part for my car/truck/etc in the morning and generally have it in the afternoon.

The bike industry is a joke. Everything is backordered with never a date that you can expect a part.

Good thing my Wee never needs any factory parts!

Cheers!

As long as the handguard is functional- does not cause clearance issues with the levers and looks good-is all I am concerned with. I really don't care who makes it.

The dealer managed to get me the Suzuki engine guard and centrestand in only a few days. They also managed to get the rack for the top case in less than a week, although it now seems fairly pointless since said case is nowhere in sight!

The guards fit perfectly (even with the heated Oxford grips) and she loves them.


While they don't stand up very well to a crash they provide real good protection from weather, flying debris and branches etc.
