Since this relates to both Burgmans available here I am posting it here. I was a little flustered the first time I had to remove a body panel to install my backrest. To prevent others from being confused I took 2 pics with explanations and posted them to my allwalk photo gallery

Hope they help others who are taking there machines apart.

Try Ron Ayers. If you can't find then on the website, email them and ask. You can usually get OEM parts at a good discount there.

Great info

Thanks! I'm going to have to replace the back cover frame. I cracked mine (long story involving gravel and a nice pump knot on my leg to show for it). I looked at the plastic fasteners yesterday for a couple of minutes and couldn't determine how to remove them.

This will save me from paying the dealer $85 to do a small job. Great info allwalk!

burg650, I would check at http://www.ronayers.com, they might stock the fasteners

I checked Ron Ayers site. They have microfiche you can view for both the Burgman 650 and 400.

Link for the 650: https://www.ronayers.com/fiche/frames.c ... roupid=170

Link for the 400: https://www.ronayers.com/fiche/frames.c ... roupid=150

From there, you can find the part you need and their price.

The leg shield I repaired is $132.00 - I spent less than $10 to repair it.

The big push pin fasteners used to hold the bottom leg shield are 87 cents apiece.

Of course you are going to pay shipping too, so if buying something like push pin fasteners, you'd need to buy about a dozen to make it worthwhile.

Hey folks if your driving by an auto wreckers stop in there. I hear Suzuki use them on there automobiles as well. So take a stroll through the wreckers and just grab a few from some old clunker :wink:

Fasteners

When I was doing my valves on the 400, my neighbour who owns a VFR has very similar fasteners said LORDCO sells the exact same fasteners. He has had to replace a few in his 95K of riding. This may save even more of your 87 cents because you don't have to pay the shipping if you have one close by. Timothy

I had a Suzuki SV650 with the exact same push-pin fasteners. I lost a couple and went to the local Suzuki/Kawasaki dealer in Sierra Vista, AZ. They sold me a packet of 6 for something like ten bucks.

The people at this particular dealership have all the charm of North Korean prison guards.

When I bought the Burgman (used, and not from them) I immediately went there to transfer the warranty. They made it clear that hell would freeze over before they ever had a "motor scooter" on the floor. They then proceeded to sell me an oil filter for the Burgman, which they oddly enough had in stock, for $16.50. After that they told me they absolutely would not service it.

Anyone know where to buy OEM oil filters for less money?

Anyone know if there's a perfectly good non-OEM filter out there, and if so, where, and how much?

Ted,

It would be great if you would forward that dealer's comments to Suzuki. I think they at least deserve a reprimand for refusal to service a current product, and their voiced hostility toward the same product. I poked around on the Suzuki website and found this - it is buried a couple of layers deep.

We need to start addressing hostile & incompetent dealers if we are to see any improvement in the situation.

Try Ron Ayers for a discount on the OEM parts. They list the oil filter for $9.62
