Part Help

Hello,

I've got a small problem, I was washing my bike today and this "heat shield" with a not so sticky backside came off from somewhere on the left side. Third time I've washed it and I don't use a lot of pressure so this is crazy it came off of wherever it's from. See attached photos plz. Anyone have an idea? Thx.

I'm assuming it's a heat shield.

Just keep the old piece, buy some aluminum heat shield on amazon, and cut to the same shape as the OEM. Just make sure the surface you want to bond to is spotless.. maybe even scotch brite it so you know it won't come off again. Most likely this shield wasn't applied properly and the adhesive on these things dry out super quick if they're not bonded to a surface properly.

Hi there! You actually have a couple of problems here. First one is that you're using water to wash the bike. The next one is you didn't just pull up the parts diagram to figure out where it goes. Left inside frame rail, not the fairing.

I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.

Lots of people use water to wash bikes. I kinda have to because I ride in all kinds of weather. But I wish I didn't have to. I didn't think bout a parts diagram. Thx 4 help.

it sticks to the inside of the frame hear the radiator on top. it should fit into the somewhat recessed area around the same shape of the piece. The Gen 4 did not have any of them but had similar openings/impressions as the Gen 5 does.

Anyone know why they added these in the impressions for the Gen 5 when the Gen 4 did not have any?

Forrest if you need a picture of where that piece specifically goes on a bike I could get one for you, just let me know.

I'll take a pic for reference only if it doesn't make you go outta your way and take bike apart. I'll be taking my bike apart soon to put it on and do some other work. Thank you.

It would not be out of my way at all, in the least.

We have a Gen 4 and Gen 5 torn apart with engines removed sitting on tables side by side where I work. I could easily snap pictures of the frame's inside area and the pads/lack of them in the difference generations. The only reason why I recognize the piece you posted is because after tearing down the Gen 5 I noticed the pads installed inside the frame and wondered why they were added, also why they are absent from Gen 4 machines.

On Monday I will take a few pictures of the area and I can throw them up here Monday night when I get home. might as well considering its barely any extra work.
