say has anyone discovered why the left side of the 650 burgy gets so much rain on the driver? i had to drive home in the rain and my left leg from my knee up got soaked! the right side was fine. my guess is the side stand but because it was dark i could not see where the water was comming from. has anyone tried to figure a way to stop this? maybe a shield over the side stand may stop it if this is where it comes from. thanks for any help bp.

You can buy the part for between $8 and $12. Easy to put on

Could be the rain deflector thingamig (or lack of it) that has been mentioned.

Or did you have passing traffic on that side? If so there will be a lot more water in the air and turbulence that side compared to the right (assuming you were in the 'inside' lane).

Just a thought - its probably bollocks! :wink:

It's definitely the lack of the rain deflector. Look at the inline picture in the link Bill gave... (It was enough to get me to buy and install the part on my '03 650.) I bought it through Ron Ayers. They do need the part number to order it. The Suzuki part number is 48183-10G00.

Believe it. Suzuki wouldn't have made it standard on the '04s and up if it didn't work, they would have made it an extra-cost accessory or just left it for a third party to sell (like Throttle Rockers, etc.).

But they were getting complaints, and this was their fix.

It changes the airflow along the bottom left fairing enough to keep rain from swirling up at the stand. For less than $10 you can't go wrong.

While cleaning up the bike today, I discovered that I've been grinding down the deflector. :shock: Under hard braking while cornering (yes, I do dumb things) it seems that makes road contact before the centerstand. :oops:
