If everything else has gone south then perhaps you don't have much to offer, apart from being well equipped and good with your tools

Rally fairing by Hot Rod Welding

After Bas did some stuff on the bike, I brought the bike to 'Hot Rod Welding' Erik in Zwaanshoek. The bike will get a tremendous make over by Erik! First of all:Rally fairing (including mount) and Rally dashboard. Besides that he will manufacture an X-rack, 9L X-tank, and protection parts on it.

Regarding the Rally Fairing: Erik made a dozen of X-Challenge fairings the last few months, but one for an X-Country he has not made before. Mine will be the first one!
And as the X-Country, especially the seat of it, is much much lower than the X-Challange, the Fairing (of course the mount included) had to decline as much as possible. Erik managed it to rebuild the mount 8cm lower than the mount on the X-Challenge! So the Fairing will also be lower for 8cm!
I haven’t seen it live yet…. Unfortunately.... But I’m lucky Erik sends me pictures every now and then.

Erik and Kees
























When you think the yellow part in white, its pretty cool isn’t it??

This is the status for now! Hope to have more new pics soon!! Thanksss Erik, for all the work up till now (and of course Bas too, with all the questions I have….).

From Erik, the bike will go to Hyperpro Bas and Rayz seats. To be continued!!!

Bye bye, kiss, Maggie

Maggie, it is hard to tell by the photos and it wasn't on Walters list, but have you replaced the standard gear shift lever for a steel model from Yamaha or TT?

Hey Cruzz! Aha somebody who's paying attention!! :) Erik had some gear shift levers in stock. I don't know which mark! One who will bend instead of break.
Besides this item, I think I need an other stand too (is it a stand in English?). This one is to short.
Thankz!

Good stuff Maggie, pretty sure Eric can add a bit to your current side stand.

You fitting a centre stand as well?

Do you stand a lot when riding, I can recommend the Pivot Pegs over the standard ones if you do, plus something like Tag Metals hand grips for extra comfort and longevity.

Just use a shift lever from a F650GS or Dakar

Perfect fit & bendy steel

Fit & forget

For the price of the BMW part you get 5 or 6 of the ones I use (some aftermarket lever for a Yammie XT). It even comes with the foldable tip . Just have to redo the bends a little, which is abt. 2 minutes works if you got a vice.

@ Maggie
About the sidestand/jiffy. I'll lengthen this one a bit if you want. That's a piece of cake

Oh, and yes I did a few fairing projects lately, but a dozen?.......... The plan is to get to that number on short notice though
Ah well, exaggeration is the privilige of woman (and fisherman) of course
