OK I don't know to call the piece so I will describe it.

When my bike got brought home my b/f was unloading it in the pouring rain by himself off the ramp.

It caught the right side plastic lower chrome "chin piece" on the bottom of the radiator and broke it. It is still hanging on with some glue, but it doesn't look like it will last long.

Can I get these without buying it from Suzuki?

I see you guys replacing your radiators with some other "chin piece", do you have any of these left over?

I am sorry I don't know what the name of the piece is. Chin piece seems right.

I believe you are talking about part #1


They are over $100 from a dealer, but used replacements should not be hard to find.

The actual name of the part is the 'Frame Body Cover', but if you post wtb in the 4-sale section and watch ebay, you should be able to find a replacement.

Also, Right and Left is not a great description as it leave room for interpretation. Brake-side or Clutch-side makes sure you get the one you need.

Good luck

Hey Blondie, I think your in for your first official Razzzzzing or maybe they will let ya slide. Im sure one of the local riders wont mind selling you thier lower radiator shroud pieces. Your bf is brave unloading that beast by himself in the rain. If you cant get one I bought the chin spoiler in the group buy but mine wont ship out for some time.

OKAY then.....I need a brake side lower radiator shroud piece thingie.

OK and square rounder, that diagram doesn't help me much. Nothing on there looks like it.

If you look on my bike in my picture. The lower chrome piece at the bottom of the radiator in the corner under the brake handle side.

That thingie there.......:D

First off, no one even notices that there is a motorcycle in your picture. Something else is distracting them.

If you took a picture of the broken part then someone would be certain of the piece that you need. If it is part of the chin spoiler, there will shortly be about 80 of them as surplus. If you're willing to hold off for a couple of months I don't think that you'll have a problem getting one.

You guys are sweet. My first day here, I said I just got my bike. Everyone said OK we need a pic to prove it. So I did that. Then everyone at work wanted a pic. Then my grandfather. My grandfather rode a Harley back in the 40s. He can't believe his granddaughter rides. Nobody ever wanted a pic of my last bike.......lol. I am used to being a TomBoy and men not believing I do some of the things I do. I also have a Miata Turbo that I have been known to embarrass more than one guy driving his "manly" Corvette at a light next to me.

So anyway. Square Rounder did a wonderful favor for me and highlighted it in the pic.

And yes I can wait no problem. But should I ask what everyone is changing to and why?
