Ian, Your products look fantastic.

How about putting the Yamaha XT 225 on the to do list.

XRL owners would probably be interested as well.

Looks good Ian, any tips on how to attempt some thing like this for myself?

That price is looking pretty good, I was about to spend about half that just on aux lights.
You're right, there's a number of light switching combinations but I have a feeling that having low on all the time may be a DOT requirement. I'm not sure on this. I'm hoping that we find a good (and economical) HID solution for the projector low beam - that should solve all the electrical issues.

Dual light XS is coming along, but won't be done by this weekend.

It's a lot of work to do a nicely finished job for just yourself, so you have to decide at the outset, whether your project is just a one off, or with production in mind. If you aren't in the composite business, it can be very difficult using the products (and even dangerous !)

If you want to have a go (and you have a fair amount of time), I would start by reading up as much as you can on using composites and mold making (Google) and go from there. Please feel free to pm me anytime for guidance on specifics britanniacomposites@shaw.ca

PS. A good freind of mine is nagging us to do something with the X Challenge, so I spent a bit of time looking at the posibility of a smallish fairing that also incorporated a 3 litre gas tank in it as well. That would be different !!

Yep, we're lining up an XLR, TE610 ,X-Chalenge and a 640 KTM to see if there's enough common ground and interest to get the subframes designed to take a new design (that also uses a slide-away screen) using the same (or similar ) lights.

I don't think so, many dual light systems have one on at the time, even in cages, it's one or the other, but for cages, kits are available to convert to both being on at the same time. My Buell setup is one or the other. I'm pretty sure even on single light setup, you either have high beam, or low beam, not both at the same time

Low on all the time is not a req.

My KLR doesn't have the low on al the time, neither do any of my cages, all of which use high/low beams.

Daytime Running Lights are mandatory here though.

here too, unless your vehicle is old enough.

My KLR is old enough.

I think the bigger issue, though, is the liine of demarcation between high and low beam, as you mentioned earlier.

All of the OEM colours are available for the KLR and you're right, the colour of the prototype shown, is a match for the 01 Olive green (withouth the fading !!)
