Hand Guard for 650

:?: I've seen pictures of a DL650 with hand guards that look like the stock guards on the DL1000. The local dealer says they are not a Suzuki item. Has anyone adapted the 1000 guard to work on the 650?

If not what else? Any ideas, or recommendations would be appreciated

Original Suzuki 650 guards are what you are looking for. They look just like DL1000 itsems but are designed for 650; the difference is that since DL1000 uses hydraulic operated clutch, the left-side handguard has different design. Obviously your local dealer doesn't know what he's talking about. Part no. in Suzuki Europe is 57300-27820-291; hope this helps.

Sorry, don't have a picture (well a bit can be seen at http://www.heikkil.com/strom/hepcot.jpg) - you just have to take my word for it... I have them in my DL650 and they are great for weather protection; for off-road use maybe not as sturdy as e.g. Acerbis guards.

This is another forum but they discussed the 650 hand guards

http://11109.rapidforum.com/topic=10...rch=&startid=2

Read my post - my dealer ordered the wrong Suzuki part - there is a kit available - there is also a picture and part number (same as heikkil's above) in the above thread:

Description: KNUCKLE COVER SET
Part number: 57300-27820-291
Application: DL650


I have the 650 HGs on mine - I like 'em!

Had the stealership install the DL1000 handguards on my DL650K5 for free as part of my purchase agreement. No difference between them, no mods needed.

I got the 650 ones on mine last week....got the dealer to fit them FOC too.
I doubt they'd have fitted so well if I'd tried fitting them! :lol:

I just put the generic UFO brand brush guards on mine. All I had to do was cut out a small piece for the clutch switch on the underside. (Note: it does not attach to the bar end and does nothing to protect the levers)

Works fine and costs way less than factory.
