The Smoked Instrument Cover for the GSX-S1000 is a snazzy mod if you want to clean up the front end a bit...
Fitting Suzuki’s Smoked Instrument Cover for the GSX-S1000 is a little more complicated than the mods we’ve done so far, mainly because there’s a little drilling involved. It’s still within even basic DIY skills though, so don’t feel daunted.
You’ll just need a drill or electric screw driver that’ll take a drill bit and a couple of drill pieces. Probably a 2-3mm, 5-6mm and a 10mm (for the final hole size, which Suzuki says should be 9.6mm).
The Smoked Instrument Cover looks great and can add a bit of character to your GSX-S1000, plus it’s a great place for stickers if you’re into that kind of thing!
Plus this is also the basic steps that’ll be required if you ever need to change the headlight bulb, or part of the steps required to fit a set of Suzuki Heated Grips.
The Smoked Instrument Cover gives a tiny bit more wind protection which is always good on a nakedbike, but isn’t really in the same league as most tall screens – not that it’s advertised as such. It’d definitely be a mod on my list along with the heated grips.
