[quote=PackMule]PS, Ian, make a Rallye fairing for the 800GS. Thanks.

Oh no ! Not more work !!

You're not the first one to suggest it though ! I rode one in the UK and was really disappointed with the whole 'fairing/instrument set-up. You think they'd learn wouldn't you !!

Watch this space !!

AWESOME!!! Please Please have them ready for Christmas!!! I want a white one!!!

Nice

I am going to have to get me one of those for the TE 610, hope you make one for the Yellow/Blue bikes .

Got a question: does it work with the IMS 5 gal tank on the TE610?

Yes, it fits with the 5 gal IMS and yes it will be available in 'Husky Blue'

Guys following this thread will be interested that there are are a few changes to the KLR Fairings and a new model.

Right from the start, it was our intention that a dash would be an integral part of the KLR fairing kits, but the Carbon items (currently an option) were just too expensive to produce to include it. I'm pleased to say this is now solved and a new ABS dash (shown below)will come standard in all the kits. Further benefits are gained here by using the back of the dash as the mounting point for the electrical Relay harness and thus doing away with another component. The KLR kits will increase by $25 to cover the dash, but guy's who would order the dash anyway (around 2/3rds) will see a saving of $35 on the whole kit.

Also introduced, is the option to upgrade the lighting to HID on one or both lamps on all models. If your trying to imagine what that is like, think of our normal Hella halogens being about three times better than the stock KLR ---- and then DOUBLE that!! Only drawing 35w on each light leaves a lot more electrical power left for all those other power sapping items like heated jackets. as well !! On low beam, it draws 20w less than stock !

Finally (and it does seem like 'Finally' !), we have introduced our new Lynx Fairing which was shown earlier in the thread. This is a 'steering' based unit designed to fit on a number of small/medium sized DS bikes including the Husky 610, DR 650, KTM's etc. As with the KLR fairings, the unit includes the 3 'key' features of slidaway screen, twin lights and a dashboard. We are really pleased with how well this unit performs considering it's small size. It completely transforms riding one of these bikes on the Highway (not that we like doing this !) way beyond the expectation of such a small unit.

We're still waiting for some components, but they will start going out in early Nov.

Check them all out at www.britanniacomposites.com

Cheers Ian

Hey Ian
I’m glad to see that the Lynx made it to production
I’m still shopping around a bit but leaning heavily towards your fairing
Did you have a chance to test fit the SM beak (in particular the middle bottom part, between the side fins)?

Can you direct me to those testimonials?

Havn't checked out the SM yet (but will get back to you). The testomonials will be some time yet, because they won't get the fairings 'till next week.

Ian,
Nice chatting to you at the dualsportbc ride. We spoke about the fairing for the DR650. Will stay in touch.

Looks like I'll have a DR650 over next week to work on fitting the new 'Lynx' fairing. Hopefully not too many mods from the Husky version.

Cheers Ian

I can now confirm that the Fairing fits with the SM Fender. In fact the 'fins' on the top of the fender look very similar to the ones on the TE. The bracket on the bottom of the fairing just tucks in behind the fins to locate against the M6 threaded hole that you have on the front face of your bottom triple clamp (you do have this hole on the SM don't you ?)

Cheers Ian

PS After lengthy delays waiting for parts to get made up, the first Lynx fairings are going out at the end of this week and we're working on a DR 650 version next week

Hey Ian
I am looking forward to seeing your DR650 fairing. I have removed my stock speedo and replaced it with a Trail Tech Vapor. Would your design be compatible with the change?

In fact, things are a lot easier with a Vapour ! There's loads of space to mount it. I'm actually more concerned how the stock guages are going to fit, but I 'll know the answer to that by the end of next week.

I'll be posting up pics of the DR fit as soon as we've figuered it out. The one we're doing next week will be in Yellow.

Say where did you get your engine guard, mine is similar but is missing that down tube. Mine is a Happy Trail one, but looks like you have some serious protection there.
