I want to put hand guards on my 2010 Burgman 650. I have looked at some of the old posts here but wondering if anyone has any experience or suggestions. Any help would be appreciated. Do not want anything too large.

I do not have hand guards but my Givi wind screen has hand protection built into it.

you can check the hand guards that Suzuki sells for the Vstrom.

However, you want to first make sure that there is enough clearance to allow mounting them without hitting the wind shield when you turn the handlebar in all the way.

good luck.....

My Clearview Large keeps the air off my hands when the screen is all the way down. Trouble is when the screen is raised there is air coming in on my hands when I least need it - when its cold because thats when I raise the screen. If I raise it part way up I still get good wind deflection. Which reminds me - since it is summer I should pop the stock screen back on. It lets more air circulate behind the screen than the Clearview even with the vent.

Thanks for that input, I hadn't even thought of a different wind screen. I looked this up on Givi and it looks like it may be my best bet, so many of the hand guards are too big and they block the view of the mirrors.

Could you possibly take a picture looking straight at the front of the bike so I can get a better idea just how wide the screen is at the handlebars. I assume it mounts to the factory windshield brackets, right?

Thanks.

Best to ask if you have the standard 650 (fixed wind screen) or the Executive model (power adjustable wind screen) as the wind screens will be different?

Mine are standard model 650's with the fixed wind screen.

Here's the photos. The first one is from centerline 7 feet back from the bike and the other standing close to the bike of center left to the bike. The measurement is 29" across the wind screen at the widest part of the hand protection. Also note that this wind screen was shortened in height by a couple of inches by the previous owner of it which is somewhat common for owners to do (something about buffeting).

Thanks everyone for the help. After reading your posts I have decided to order the clearview for my 650 executive model.

thanks to MJR for the pics. It does look good! After seeing the pics of the Givi I have second thoughts and may order it instead.

Thanks again

I prefer the Clearview to the Givi.
It is 3.5" wider and excellent wind protection on the hands.
I'm amazed at how low temp I can ride with light gloves on. Big change over stock

If you put the screen up you get some air flow but the Clearview is 1.5" taller than the stock Exec screen so I rarely move it.

The same would apply to the Givi - a gap would open

That may solve one item on my list of things to make the bike fit me!

That is good question. I don't know. They look rather small (in height) so perhaps they won't but there is only one way to find out, unfortunately.
Has someone installed these?
