Hey all good news. We now have another windscreen option.

I was just over this morning at Suzuki Canadas main Headquarters here in Toronto for a Demo ride (want to try the 400) and they had a 650 with this extremely new windscreen on the 650. I got talking to the parts accessories guy and he told me it was just in this past week and he put it on to give it a try. It hasnt been released to dealers yet, next week he tells me. He didn't have the part number readily available but said if I e-mail him he will give it to me. There made in Italy by the way. So as once again if you look in the gallery/photo section under allwalk I have Posted 3 pics of this yet unseen windscreen (so they tell me)http://burgmanusa.com/gallery/allwalk?page=1
And another piece of information for you exhaust fanatics. They showed me the Yoshimura catalogue and they have a full system titanium/carbon fibre trioval replacement for the 650 Burgman.

I like the way it pooches out by the sideview mirrors. May take some of the windnoise away. Did you measure its height to see if it's in fact taller than the stocker?

Have you a price?

They told me that it is 2 inches taller than lasts year accessorie screen or taller screen. So I don't really know how tall it was. I didn't take my tape measure with me , It was a Demo ride after all and I wasnt expecting it. As far as price all he could tell me was it will be under $200 CDN.
He did say and that it was a little tougher to install as it was made of thicker material. They felt that the OEM replacement screen was to flexible, so the new one is of thicker material to reduce flexing. THis was obvious when I parked mine right beside it for comparison.

New Windscreen for AN 650

First of all, Allwalk, thanks for all of your great pictures. I open them up and familiarize myself with removing the plastic from time to time. (This afternoon I will be taking the plastic off to complete the installation of J & M's handlebar CB and Delphi XM radios.) The last picture in your portfolio was taken from the rider's eyeview and looks an awful lot like my Clearview XL as I am perched on the seat. It will be interesting to see a back to back comparison with the Clearview, Givi, and new Suzuki (when they become available.) Again, Allwalk, thanks for the pictures and keep up the good work!

Thanks for the kind words Bill. I'm glad the photos are helping. I'll keep posting and snapping pics. As long as it helps out 1 person I'm happy putting out the effort.

Ok gang as promised I have the part number for you. But first here is a little excerpt from the e-mail I received from my contact:
I do not believe the windshield will be available in the USA at this time
You're going to have to check with your USA dealers and use this part number
Tall Windshield: with added hand guard protection.


PN/ 99999-RMCRI-650 Suggested Retail $ 146.95 CDN


( interchanged from pn/ 99999-RAC50-650 )
I just picked up mine this afternoon on my way into work. I Plan on taking pictures for a Windsreen Changing Tutorial with pics. I will also take pics of them side by side and give you all true measurements when I install it tommorrow.
He also said:
I only have a few immediately available
I have no idea how many he has.

Ok hi again folks! I just finished installing the new OEM windscreen and I took pictures and measurements as promised. The pics again are in the allwalk gallery on page 4 http://burgmanusa.com/gallery/allwalk

As far as the measurements go here they are as follow:

Windscreen Width , Height , Thickness

Stock 17" wide 24 1/2" tall 4mm thick

OEM Replacement 16" @ the top tapering to 19 1/4"
@ the hand flare wide
27 3/4" tall 4mm thick

When mounted the OEM windscreen has about a 4 1/2" more rake, which means the top edge is closer to the rider, see photo in gallery with side shot showing the stock screen sitting on top of the new one.


I took it for a quick ride for an evaluation. I could actually ride up to 80 kmh with the visor up and just a wee breeze on the face, it was nice. No helmet buffeting at all and the wind noise was reduced by huge amounts. I can actually hear the engine now. Above 80 km/hr the windscreen was still excellent, no wind buffeting and I could still hear the engine. I felt it was more comfortable with the visor down at 110 -130 kms. I will readvise in regards to protection from the elements in wet weather.

Well done, Allan! My dealer told me today that there's a 240 deep backorder for the Suzuki replacement windscreen. Mine's been on order for a month, although I'm now making certain that the one I'll be getting is the new one.

Also, your installation shots in the photo gallery are first rate. Thanks!

Last years tall screen is 29" tall and a hint wider than the small, but has no hand protection wings. I am 5'11, however I'm all upper body. I found the regular screen on my wife's 650 could not stop the wind hitting me at any speed. The tall windscreen on mine made a difference, but I need another inch or two to stop it. I was hoping this newly designed screen would be it, however from your measurements posted it may be too short.

Thanks for the info.

Called my dealer in Ottawa today (Tuesday) and ordered the new screen. Will be in on Friday, just in time for another weekend ride.

I had my first ride on Sunday, glorious weather in Eastern Ontario, and did some 220km. during which I found the original screen a bit tiring at the end, buffeting around and wind noise even with ear plugs, so have great hopes for the taller model.

Having the product code was really useful, as it was not in the dealers system but they found it immediately at Suziki Canada. So thanks Allwalk for that v. useful tidbit.

Surprise, surprise, saw a Burgie identical to mine, Blue '04, parked right across the street (Sparks) from my office. Lucky owner get free parking right downtown! I have to pay.

I contacted Suzuki to see if the new windscreen design was made in tall and regular size as replacements.
Here is the response I received:

The motorycle accessories specialist indicates the part number you provided is the updated part number.( 99999-RMCRI-650 )

He states the new windshield is:

3"taller, but tapers back towards the rider more than the stock windsheild.
The dimensions are around 16" wide at the top tapering down to about 19 1/4" at the handguard and about 27 3/4" tall and 4MM thick


The tall windshield is the same as last year's model.
99999-RAC50-650

Hope this helps.

The new screen is about 1" shorter than the tall, but the tall has no hand protection.

Hi all; have the new OEM windshield installed on my 2004 650 at the dealer. I'm always reluctant to do things myself. My dealer (Wheelsport) has always been fair with me and I think of it as a little insurance if something goes wrong on the installation. Waiting time for the windshield was 3 days. Price (discounted) for a new bike $Cdn132.

I'm 5'8" on a good day and if I slouch a little (bad for the back) I can look through the windshield. Sitting fully straight, I generally look above the screen and further down the road, otherwise I'm looking half and half, which is disconcerting. Helmet buffeting is down quite a bit.

The OEM replacement shield looks like a copy of the GIVI screen or vice versa, in a comparison the parts manager and I made with a Burgman the dealer has.
