Wee-Strom handguard installation instructions needed

I bought a used set of Suzuki hand guards (never mounted) and the previous owner neglected to send me the installation instructions.

Does anyone have an electronic copy they could send to me? I've already emailed the seller, but would like to have instructions before installing them later tonight.

Thanks a bunch!

Did you try the search function of our beautiful forum?

YES! And your beautiful forum's search mechanism turned up fewer results (and none were helpful) than the search on the V-Strom forum... and Delphi's forum was worthless too!

So, not to be a jerk, but do you have a set of these instructions or were you just yankin' my chain like I'm a Noob? :lol:

If I had a scanner, I'd send them to you.

Otherwise, this is the best I could find on the 'net: http://perljam.net/motorcycle/dl650/handguards/

If you have any questions, let me know and I'll try to help.

Sorry if you feel I think you are a noob (btw what does it really mean? I'm not kidding, english is not my native language so I am not familiar with slang) I did not want to be insolent.
I have experienced that a lot of our fellows just post a question that are already answered just because they are lazy to look after. That is why my advice.
I do not know other V-Strom forums and also do not plan to discover. Our beautiful forum helped me a lot, I have used its search function and it worked for me pretty well so far. I am really sorry that the topic you are interested in is not processed yet. This is not the forum's fault, isn't it?
Hope you will succeed with lajaro.

I will see if I still have the instructions tonight. If I do, I can scan them and send them to you in the morning.

mokusbajusz, NOOB = Newbie - someone who is new to the forums.

I've read quite a few smart-a$$ed remarks made in the past about the search facilities (which has probably made me overly sensitive). The only thing I could find is folks who have them installed or bought a bike with thme installed.



lajaro, I found that web site too before posting here and it looks to be the winner so far. It probably has better photos than the Suzuki instructions do!



the borg, I am waiting to be assimilated! I've been really bitter since it's been in the 30s each morning this week and my blasts into work have been cut short by the cold temps. Usually I'd take a longer route on the way to work, but this week I've been forced to warm my fingers!

Thanks for the offer of your scanning services! I appreciate it.



All, if you sell a brand-new item on the classifieds please include the instructions. :lol: Or if you don't have the instructions any more, let the buyer know ahead of time. I'd have paid the extra 10 bucks to not go through this mess. :roll: :wink:

One quick tip

I did this installation a week ago, which means it falls about six days outside of my useful memory. However, one thing I remember from reading various posts is that when you first remove your bar end weights DO NOT take the screw all the way out. Just loosen it enough that you can slide the bar end weight out of the handlebar as a complete assembly. Do a few turns of the screwdriver, then pull on the end weight. If it doesn't slide out, repeat. Eventually you'll be able to pull it out easily. This will save you trying to find the nut that falls off the inboard end of the screw if you take the screw all the way out.

It's a relatively painless procedure overall.

gbart951, thank you!!! Between this and the other instructions I got in email... I should have it completely covered!

Thanks!


Bunker, I've already been there with the grip installation. Coming from cruisers, we don't have any bar end weights... so of course I just undid the screw. :lol:

I ended up removing the control housing from the handlebar and then pushing that nut assembly out with an old coat hanger. Definitely falls into the cartegory of PITA. :x
