I saw that too, then went and looked it up at Rocky Mountain ATV. $60-ish each. BUT.. the heat shield is another $40 or so. Basically, ProCycle makes little or nothing on that stuff.

Next best bet will be Maier, in the off chance they have something. Otherwise, eBay.

Like I said, there are NO inexpensive DR side covers.

I guess I was looking at those through the eyes of someone who had to replace plastics on a sport bike. When you've paid $450 for a single fairing panel, $190 for both sides starts looking cheap.

Yup. To make matters worse, Suzuki just hit us with another price increase. It's the 3rd or 4th one in the last 12 months.

Well, looking at it from a more apples to apples comparison, as in 2 dual sport bikes, I can get a whole Acerbis body set for my KTM 450 EXC for $99. Thats not only two side covers, but two shrouds and 2 fenders as well.

Thanks for destroying the dream!

You forgot the $33 for the heat shield.

If Acerbis is making them that cheaply for the KTM, and the numbers of DR650SE's sold throughout the years seems greater than each KTM model... perhaps petition Acerbis to create body panels for the DR650?

Even if they only came in one or two colors, if the price was right for side-covers (or a whole kit)... they'd sell compared to Suzuki's prices.

Heck, they make sets for the DRZ that are $115.

suggestions?

The thing I like about this, over a tail bag, is it's not likely to fall off and it can be locked. I keep mostly camera gear in it.

Find the plastic pale that has the color you like, and forum your own plastic parts. or even better is to make them out of aluminium.

They are so easy to make, and home built looks better if you put some effort into it.

We have a good selection of diffrent colored pales up here in Westen Canada. White is the most common, then Black is pretty readable. Blue, Yellow, are a bit tougher to find.

I cut on my square and reform it into the flat mode with hot, hot, and hot water. Then cut out the shape needed. I put it in place on the bike to see where it needs the bends and mark them on the clean out side. With a heat gun on the back side of the pannal is were I heat to make my bends.

A few race stickers and your good to go.

From Jeathrow Bowdean PS: Man made it, and man can fix it him self !!!
