Will the twin headlight fairing include headlight assembly? If so will you be able to buy w/o headlight and add your own lights? Very interested....

OK, as promised, here are pics of the one we're testing. This is the 'model' (which is made of fibreglass, plywood, metal and filler !!) and will now be used to make the split molds in order to produce them. There are still some minor 'tweeks' to do, but largely this is it.

Sweet I need one. The new look is awesome and I see that you have filled in some on the bottom. Awesome.

Yeah, the bit filled in at the bottom stiffens it up a bit and hopefully reduces any draft coming up (yet to be established !) The unit performs similarly to the XS, but it doesn't have the same stability as the XS.

We will be on with the twin light version of the XS tomorrow. Hope to have that done by next weekend. Both should be available in a couple of weeks.

OK I skipped to the last page for the pictures...

Will the fairing kit include lights?
Are the lights better than the firefly butts currently being used on the pre '08s?
If the fairing kit comes the 2 bright lights will a wiring upgrad be required?

Those interested in spending some money want to know how many sofa cushions we are going to have to look under for change....

The fairing kit will include the twin Hella lights (pre fitted) and a wiring harness taking power directly from the battery and activated by the OEM lighting circuit via relays. We are considering adding a small junction/fuse box to allow for other power consumers (GPS , Acc socket etc) to draw power from the same source behind the fairing (all nice and neat).

We are still gathering quotes for the supply of the electricals, but we ESTIMATE a price of approx $350- 390 on this unit and approx $70 more for the twin light XS.
