Hi, Shachar. Welcome to the forum!

I can't speak from personal experience, but I have heard that the Laminar Lip, an add-on deflector that changes airflow around your windscreen, is very helpful at improving a passenger's experience in the rain. The company's web site is http://www.laminarlip.com. You'll find a Scooters link, and from there can drill down until you find Burgmans (Burgmen?).

Myself, I opted for a larger after-market windscreen from Givi. More expensive than the Lip, a bit of a pain to install, but I am pleased with the results I get. It made riding in the rain and wind much easier for me.

Hope this is a helpful start. You might want to search the forum for key words like Givi, Clearview and Laminar Lip.

Again, welcome, and good riding.
--Chris

MR Motorcycle has fiche for the 2004 AN650 on their website. When you pull up the fiche, go to category "side leg shield" and look for part 3A "leg shield cover". That is what we refer to as the rain deflector. It is Suzuki part number 48183-10G00. They sell it for $7.98. You might also want to purchase the two screws (part 6). Suzuki part number 03541-05163. They are 55 cents a piece on this site. They are not included with the rain deflector.

As an alternative, you could call Ron Ayers with the parts numbers and probably get them a bit cheaper. I think I paid less than $4 for the rain deflector there when I bought it. Ron Ayers also has fiche, but only for the 2003 model, which does not have this part. But if you call them with the parts number they can look it up and give you their price.

I forgot to order the screws, so I went to the hardware store and bought two 5 X 16mm screws. That worked fine and was a few cents cheaper, but it was a pain in the neck finding them.

You will have to drill two holes in your left side leg panel for the screws to tap into.

The part number of the rain deflector is 48183-10G00 . You should be able to get it from any dealer. A couple of online sources are :

Oneida Suzuki
Ron Ayers

Ha! At least we both came up with the same part number! But you forgot the screws, Bill. I win, I win! :p
You beat me to the post by exactly one minute. Of course I forgot the screws, mine aren't loose like yours. Mine got lost along with my marbles. :p

I'll be damned if I can ever find anything on Ron ayers site. I was trying to look up this part number 48183-10G00 and all I get is "add to cart". I want to see what it looks like.
On Oneida 's site, there isn't a picture available.
Is this something that protects your legs/ankles? Where does it mount onto the bike?

The rain deflector mounts right above the side stand. There's some pictures of the rain deflector installed at :

The 2003 Burgman 650 didn't have the deflector. Without the deflector, the bike often ended up looking like :

If you're hesitant to drill holes for the screws in your Burgman you could consider using 3M Automotive Trim tape to attach the deflector. It's the two-sided tape that most car manufacturers use to attach trim, emblems, etc. and is available at most parts stores.

Thaks Bill, that answers that. Its not what I'm looking for. What I want is wind/rain deflectors that would protect my legs. Something that would fit the contour of the feet area.
Thanks for the pictures.

Did you have to tap the holes or are they self tapping screws?

Do you install one on each side or only the left side by the side stand?

Janine :?

Janine,

Just one above the sidestand. Being a 2004 model, "CLYDE" should already have one. I thought the 2004s all had them installed, but seem to remember someone had to add one to a 2004 model too.
