I got the fairing here http://www.britanniacomposites.com/lynx.html

Good people to deal with and the fairing works better than the size would suggest

I have over 13,000 mile on the conversion and some tuff off road stuff to boot. she has worked awesome!!! I am very excited with how it has turned out. Next up will be a rear fender set up so I can swap back and forth with the 4gal tank. that way I can have it light and nimble for off-raod and shorter trips or plenty of fuel and luggage for extended touring.

Nice - probably my favorite conversion. I like it enough that I have been tossing the idea around myself. If I do it, there will be a good number of your ideas that I will try to copy (not sure I have the skill but I am willing to give it a try).

Hehe - I was wondering about that too Looks like you have gone through a few muffler revisions. Product of "fine tuning"?

the muffler bracket broke on me after the Dempster. The different configurations you see is my "convertible" exhaust take one mid pipe out and rotate the muffler and it is a high pipe for trails.

I'm going after a new look and have another pipe on order hope to have it in a few weeks

the whole convertible idea sounded good, but didn't work like I wanted with the bags on also I need a new mid pipe now and they are not making parts for it anymore so It's a no go for replacement parts. I have ordered a pipe that should work well with the luggage and normal riding and not as good in the big rocks of Colorado that I like
