Since it has been over a year since you discussed it in that thread, do you have further thoughts??
It seems every pic I have of the laminar lip, it's covered by my Wolfman carryall. Here's one from a Creel trip in 2006.
It worked well enough, but with the wolfman bag covering it any "laminar" effect was gone. I smashed it to bits 2 days after this photo in a hard "unscheduled dismount".
When it was mounted, it was very similar in height to a stock 640 adventure mask. I just through bolted it to the mask, the hook n loop that comes with it didn't work very well.
I won't buy another one, because the windbreak gained is so little when used with the Wolfman Enduro Carryall
. And I LOVE the Wolfman bag!! It rocks!!
I'm waiting on brown santa (UPS) to bring me my next round of upgrades/changes/maintenance items.
- Electrex 270W stator c/w Reg/Rect/Harness
- Heated Grips
- Baja Designs Diablo HID Headlight
I already wired the bike for GPS and Electric vest, but adding the
- heated grips
- helmet cam
- satellite phone charger
- blender (hey, I'm goin to Margaritaville)
- bean grinder & coffemaker...
OK, so the last two were a joke. But the stock stator puts out maybe 85W. I need to mod the stator to switch over to full DC for the HID headlight anyway, so I'm going with the Electrex ESG145 kit comes with everything ~$250
I've also upgraded the battery to a Yuasa YZ7TS or whatever (search KTMTalk for battery upgrade).
Waiting anxiously for this bad boy to show up.
