Suzuki Hand Guards 2012 DL1000GT K8
« on: November 06, 2020, 22:43:35 »
I'm looking for replacement Original Suzuki Hand Guards 2012 DL1000GT K8, I've been let to believe that they are the same as the 650 but a bit reluctant to buy from ebay to be left with something that doesn't fit.

You could try Fowlers to compare part numbers.
Alternatively, Barkbusters could be a good alternative.

Daft question but is K8 not 2008 for DL1000?
If so then try here:
"Suzuki DL1000 V-STROM 2008 KNUCKLE COVER - MSP" https://www.motorcyclespareparts.eu/en/Suzuki-parts/2008-DL1000-v-strom-motorcycles/knuckle-cover
Other years and models available 😉.
Even with postage they're usually cheaper than the UK based suppliers.
Is it just to replace a damaged one as fitting them to a bike that didn't have them originally means new pivot bolts etc.

Well spotted. Unless it is a (very) late-registered bike, I wouldn't expect a k8 to wear a 2012 plate.

The 650 has a cable clutch, the 1000 a hydraulic so I don't think there the same, the master cylinder might get in the way.
