I've noticed that in a very short time you could plant a crop of potatoes in any of the storage areas of the bike. I never ride in dirt and always park in my garage when not in use. Has anybody figured a way to make these areas more dust proof?

Ride up here in the great northWet. No dust here. :D

I get sand in all three front compartments. I know its from the tire flinging it up. I have put a front fender Extenda on and wii see it that helps.

I'm not sure where the generous helpings of dust are coming from--I assumed the glove-boxes were pretty sealed at first. It gets into the keyed latch on the large one and gums up the works.

Maybe the new Burg is better in this respect.

None of the storage compartments are sealed well. There are drain holes and no sealing where plastic covers are installed or where plastic components meet. I think that's the source of most of the dirt. Next time when I have all of the front plastic off, I'm going to apply RTV where Suzuki should have.

I added some weather stripping foam and it has helped alleviate the dirt build-up inside the compartments.

the pic is too big to display here, cut and paste the link below to see what I am talking about.

to truly seal them off, you will have to take the front box out, undo the little glove boxes and seal the seams/joints between them.
