I'm taking my DL650 in for its 600 mile service Friday. My Suzuki handguards came in today. I have some basic mechanical know-how and a good set of tools. (I installed Helibars and exhaust on my Ducati) Should I tackle this myself? I hate the thought of paying someone else to do a basic install, but I've read too many bad threads on this topic.

The directions stink, but otherwise it's not that hard (and I'm no master mechanic). Take your time, read the instructions (we won't tell :wink: ), and have at it.

On the other hand, if they'll install them for cheap, let 'em do it.

Am I going to have to re-adjust the clutch?

the clutch adjustment won't change. the important part is to unscrew the handle bar end weights no more than 3/4". then wiggle the assembly until it comes out as a unit. that's the only delicate part.

Listen to the wolf. He is wise like ninja.

Other than that it's a piece of cake.

Do it yourself its very satisfying

I have to agree with Kneedrachen, be careful with the bar end bolts or have magnetic pointy stick at hand. I found slackening off the clutch and throttle lever handles and rolling them forward a little eased fitting. I did notice however that the levers weren't 100% back in their original positions even with extra tinkering, however the change made no difference. In fact I found the throttle a little more comfortable, possibly because my right wrist is a little wonky from a break a few years ago. :wink:
