Wink DR650 rally fairing

Howzat all.

Been toying around with the idea of putting a rally type fairing on the front of my 08 DR650. The idea was started when I saw a build done by DisTech on a DR650. He built an instrument tray for the front and immediately I decided I wanted the same. Glued to the rally bikes, other ideas started popping up and I decided to do the build which ended up like this:[IMG][/IMG]

I used this Dakar screen for a while and after a few too many falls, the fittings started wearing and I started getting a few decent rattles.
Then I thought: seeing as though I'm gonna do this over, I might as well do it properly! I started looking at rally bikes and their instrument towers and settled on a kickass looking fairing design.
It was off to design mode and I came up with this:[IMG][/IMG]
The thought was to fit it to the brackets already holding the front headlight and have the whole assembly move with the front end. Then Lukas noted that It most likely affect the handling I thought a bit further and I'm now in the process of building the front end onto the frame. Thanks Lukas
I have just finished Building a mold for the fairing and will post a pic or few soon. Be patient. Any Ideas are welcome.

Cheers Dyl
