Front fairing for KLR 650
 
Hey guys!
I have recently got a 93 KLR 650 because its reliable, good on gas and there is a god supply of parts for it.
I have close to 1000 miles on it already and I have to tell You: its a keeper :nod:nod. I know for the money we spend on these machines We can not criticize the design of its bodywork but I wish there is a replacement front fairing out there for us, what looks good, gives weather protection, wind protection.
I mean not just an over sized fuel tank or an over priced plastic piece from Canada, but something You would see on a rally bike ( Dakar ), something what measures up to the KLR !
So far my search was fruitless and I start to think I might need to fabricate something for myself.

So far the only piece I have made for my bike is a carbon fiber fender ( 2 fenders using different CF cloth )

Also. I remember seeing someone made a complete front fairing for their KLR with diamond plate.
It's somewhere on the ADV sight.
