Has anyone mounted the Phoenix twin with a UFO or low fender? Pics?

The beak is growing on me, but I think the low fender would look better, and get rid of the high speed fender waggle.

Maybe a "little" like this:

no pic, how about this: http://www.motorcyclespecs.co.za/mod...enere%2008.htm

weight??

Hi Ian,
How much does the XS twin weigh?
How much does the full dash panel weigh?

Just looking to see if weight can be dropped by switching to the new fairing and new instruments even though there will be two headlights instead of one...

Thanks,
E

We never actually weighed it ! But to answer your question, the XST weighs the same as the OEM components it replaces (inc front fender), so there is no saving. In fact when you pick one up, it feels like quite a lot weight until you realise you are picking up the lights, screen, fairing and front fender all at the same time !

We looked at ways of reducing weight in the fairing, but at the end of the day, the fairing itelf weighs 'next to nothing', by comparison to the other components in the kit.

We've tried to improve most things with the fairing, but I'm afraid weight isn't one of them !!

Actually there is shortly going to be a full test comparison of our fairings done on www.KLRWorld.com and I think an actual comparison weighin has been done for that test. Keep you eyes on the site.

Cheers Ian

Yes, although it is not on our website until next week. The upgrade comes fitted and costs $90 for the low beam and $ 175 for both.

Cheers Ian

Hi Ian,

what's the status of the TE610 fairing/lights?

I've been eagerly awaiting some quality photos, etc.
Its definitely on my list of upgrades to purchase over the winter.

cheers,
Edward


p.s.
For you KLR owners on the fence about buying this fairing.. it looks FANTASTIC in person. I've ridden with Hondo a few times recently (he has the black one) and if I owned a KLR I'd be buying one for sure. It makes a "generic bike" look like a "rally exotic" imho (not to mention the cool adjustable screen and the extra light even the non-HID's put out).. s

Thanks for your kind words ! There are two of the new 610 Fairings going out to owners within the next week (one Red, one white) as preliminary orders. One has a single HID on the low beam and one is twin HID. They are not in full production as yet, because we are still waiting for components, which is why it isn't on the website yet. I'll see if I've got any more pics for ya.

No reason at all ! In fact, following many many emails regardingthe DR (far more than the Husky) the DR is the next one we will be working on.

The fairing, unusually, relies on the dash as part of it's fitment ( see pic)which in turn, locates by being 'clamped' by the Handle bar riser bolts. We anticipate that the dash will need to be slightly different for the DR, in that somehow we have to accomodate the clocks and ignition switch.

Realistically, it will be into December before this is available. However, if you wanted to forget all that and simply get the fairing (which has the lights mounted in it) and find your own way to actually mount it, then we could do a 'one off' for you now.

Another thing to consider is electrical power. The 610 is 'blessed' with an unusually high stator output (for this type of bike) and has no trouble with the twin 65w Hellas. However we will be offrering HID on either one or both lights for bikes that have low electrical outputs. These only draw 35w each and the light is 'unbelievable', but it costs nearly $100 per light for the upgrade. What is the output of the DR ?

Thanks for the interest

Ian

I don't suppose they are going to be made in 06' blue eh?

I wonder if I can fit an 07's red sides on my 06... then my bike will look like ketchup & mustard
