Seems like it would be the perfect place for mounting switches or GPS type items.
Nothing at the moment.

This a CRF250L with a gauge mount. We could extend the mount to the sides which would provide a bit of room for other stuff.


This is the main mount, move the key switch on the drz


other side with dimmer and 12v socket

I'd love to get one of these on my plated Honda CRF 450X, has anyone installed it on one yet? It also has a Baja Designs kit on it, so I'd have to be able to get all of the "stuff" from it into the fairing. To your knowledge has this been done?

It seems like this would be a great market for these amazing fairings.

If you need dimensions, I'd happily provide!

I have a question about the electric.. stuff. It's my understanding that halogen lights run off AC power provided directly by the stator, and LED lights run off DC power from the battery. In your instructions, you say to wire the lights to the battery confirming that.

Multiple times throughout this post, you reference the "power difference" IE "stock headlights are 55W, and 2 model 60s are 60W so you're only using 5 more watts." But does it work like that? The AC power that used to be powering the headlights isn't now being used to charge the battery, so you're really just adding 60 more watts of DC usage, correct? Please tell me I'm wrong. I'd love to be wrong!

Not that I am aware of. The main mounting brackets provide a nice place to mount things though.

If you have a headlight that uses 55w and replace it with our Dual Sport fairing that uses 56w on full power and only 5w on low beam then the net effect is you are using far fewer watts. Another consideration is that you typically are using high beam wihen moving, ie higher rpms which means more watts from your stator.

The battery is simply a storage device, the stator and load (ignition, lights, accesories) determine how much of the battery is used.

Ordered a fairing and two 3600 lumen lights. Got the items two days later. Awesome service.

Just got the fairing on today and buzzed up the switchbacks from Banning to Idyllwild. One 3600 lumen light is PLENTY of light on the twisties, and two lights is just unreal. Need to steepen the angle on the fairing, but at 55mph it's a huge improvement.

Question Future buyer.

When your flipping from high to low is that a single model 60 going from high to low or on low 1 and on high both at full power

Hit the high beam and oh my, hide the children.



Low beam (rememeber, it is adjustable)



Pow, making daylight on high beam

If his is like mine, there's a single on a dimmer for low (I've set mine as low as the dimmer goes).

When you hit the high beam, both lights go full power.
