Hello All,

Just acquired a 2003 650 Burgman yesterday. Has quite a few miles (47,000) on her but, she's in good shape and appears to run well. Has been well cared for from the looks of it. I live in Tomball, Texas (Northwest Houston) and am a 'newbie' in the Burgman world!

One issue I see is that the clear plastic dash face is pretty beat up for my liking. I am pretty anal about the condition of my vehicles so I'd like to be able to replace this I was wondering if anyone knows how difficult it would be to replace this part and if that part is readily available? Is that clear plastic dash cover a separate part?

Other than that, the bike does need a new front tire which I will take care of shortly.

I do not have an owners manual for the bike so have no reference for anything about it other than what the former owner told/showed me.

This will be quite a switch for me as I have owned many bikes over the years including a 1981 Honda GL1100, 2001 Kawasaki Voyager 1200, 1985 Kawasaki Voyager 1300, 1999 Honda Magna 750 and 1990 Honda Pacific Coast. The Burgman reminds me a lot of the Pacific Coast although it was an 800cc. In fact, I traded the 1985 Voyager 1300 for the Burgie. Looking forward to spending time on the Burgie!

Thanks!

Any help or suggestions as to things I should know about this bike would be much appreciated. I figured this forum has all the answers I could possible need.

Welcome to the site, tons of info here and friendly folks willing to help when possible.

Yes, that part can be had for about $65 (ouch). here is link it is Part #5.

It does require removing lots of plastic to get to it windshield and most of the nose. In the mean time maybe some plastic lens cleaner may help.
There are lots of DIY instructions and videos in the "HOW TO" section and in places like the Knowledge Base and LeDudes Burgman center. Even if you only have basic wrenching skills these will walk you thru most anything.

I hope he provided you with the last time the bike was serviced. If not then Flushing and replacing all the fluids and filters would be in order, along with inspecting the rubber hoses for cracks and dry rot.

The hardest part is getting all the Tupperware off w/o breaking any of the tabs.
