You will need to do a little Dremil work on the right hand guard. The throttle cables have changed from all other years and now hit the OEM guard big time. If you don't do some cutting the guard will never fit. I bought the parts specified on the Suzuki site for an 07. Hopefully there is a modified version on the way soon. also to get the cables over the guard it makes the all important throttle calbe slack adjustment very hard to do. With the angle that the cables bend feeling the proper resistance per the manual is tough. Hope these (poor) pictures will help.

That's a puzzle. I have a DL650K7 and installed the OEM handguards with no problem on either side. Didn't have to cut or notch the right-hand side and though the throttle cables run quite close to the guard they don't touch it.

Me too. No problems. The cables are very close though.

Would it be a case of loosening the throttle housing and rotating it slightly for clearance. Also Suzuki was obviously listening to some one. They appear to have put the hi/lo switch where it belongs. Farkle On.

One other thing...does anyone think there is a ton of play (verticle) in the clutch lever now that the hand guards hardware is the pivot point? My lever goes up/down +/- .25".

I just tried to rotate the RH control pod and it is indexed to the bars so you cant. Then I tried to rotate the lever mounting bracket (that the mirror mounts to) and I can't move it enough to eliminate the interference. I'll bet you guys got a different part. Did the dealer install or did you get them online???? and what part number???

Thanks guys.

I do have some vertical play in the clutch lever, but it is no more than pre-install. I had the dealer give me a set of hand guards when I bought the bike and I installed them myself--sorry, but I don't have any pics now. I'll try to grab a couple later; as you might imagine, Sunday is a very busy day for me :wink:
