Still working on cleaning and rebuilding the four carburetors from the 1981 Suzuki GS650, but this morning I finally installed the GIVI A172 windscreen that I received for Xmas on the 2013 Suzuki SFV650.
The instructions that came with the windscreen were fairly useless, just a picture of what to do and not much more than that. The washer locations were pretty clear…
Only two 5mm Allen head bolts that hold the instrument cluster and cable guides on each side of the the fork had to be removed and then replaced with longer 8mm hex head bolts to mount the arms for the windscreen. Each side was done individually so that the instrument cluster would stay in its proper place during the installation. 5mm Allen head bolt location (Sorry about the pollen. Can’t wash it every day):
Tight squeeze there with cables, frame, and fork, but not too bad.
I then bolted the windscreen to the bracket. As the windscreen was tightened to the bracket, the brackets found their desired position and the windscreen pretty much centered itself on the bike. I then tightened down the 8mm hex head bolts to finish it off.
Before and After shots:
First ride did feel like the airflow was a bit smoother, but it will take some more rides with different situations to see if it really makes a difference.
