Dealer can't find a part

The rubber bumper that prevents the centerstand from hitting the frame fell off, and the dealer can't find it in the diagrams.Anyone have a part number for that?

The DL650 doesn't ship with a center stand bumper.
The bumper is part of the available Suzuki center stand kit.
I installed a Suzuki center stand on my DL650A9 and the
installation instructions show every part, including the
cushion (bumper), but no part numbers. The cushion
actually installs on a bracket which is on the bottom of
the rear cylinder exhaust pipe just as it joins the front exhaust.
The Suzuki parts diagram shows the muffler and exhaust
with welded on bracket but no cushion.
If parts are available separately for the center stand maybe
your dealer can approach it from that direction.
Good luck.

The rubber bumper came off of my center stand too. I searched in the garage & found a thick rubber washer of about the same diameter. I used some tie wraps to secure it making sure the tie wraps were not in the line of impact when the stand "kicked up".

I live in my own little world, but it's OK, they know me here.

Got to Lowes or Home Depot or something and get a plastic or rubber "Foot" similar to what is seen on electronic equipment. Many of them are self-adhesive, others have a counter-sunk hole for a bolt to go through.

I know Lowes sells packs of 6 or 8 self-adhesive pads that are about an inch in diameter and maybe 1/8" thick. Stick a couple of them together and they should be about the right thickness. Punch a hole in them and run a bolt up through the bracket and they probably won't come off again.

I'd also look around where you normally park your bike when it's on the centerstand. After all the pad that was on it can't come out when the stand is up so it should be on the ground close to where the stand was down.

Mine fell off in the garage, and I reattached it with a through-bolt from the hardware store. The fellow at Ace said he thought a suitable replacement might be found in various auto body bumpers available from auto parts places. My fix has lasted, so I have not pursued that possibility.
