I measured the width of the OEM bracket that holds the headlight bracket and it measured 6-14/16" wide (outside to outside of oem bracket).

At least he can see the ticks to count to 14. Those marks can be hard to follow and count.

Most off road oriented KTMs use 2 pins in the fender with the upper attaching to the fork legs with a strap, we have that. Electrics are similar, will be supplied with a plug n play connector. You will need to check the connections on your bike to verify High low and ground.

What does Husaberg use to connect the fairing? We have a 4 strap setup to attach to forks legs. This works if there is no subframe or other mounting.

My Husaberg ('11 FE570S) has the two pins on the fender (well, one - 'cos one of mine broke off ) and uses the rubber straps (x4) to attach the assembly to the fork legs.

Should mount up with the 4 fork mounts, the pin spacing will work if it is the same as a KTM (or you could just knock the other one off).

Hi sanjoh,

I measured the width of the OEM bracket that holds the headlight bracket and it measured 6-7/8" wide.

That will work with the fairing. Installation will entail choosing the veritical height of the fairing by using the lower bolt/hole on the stock mount, after removing the headlight subframe (not the ones connected to the fork). Angle can be set using the provided holes in our main bracket or if more angle/rake is desired, drill a hole in the main bracket and use the upper oem bolt location.

Does your electrical connector for the headlight look like this?

The fairing will be for sale next week.

The Dual Sport Fairing has been a joint venture between a couple of ADVer's that love to ride. Harcus has been using his mad skills to craft the fairing and mechanicals and I have developed the lighting and controls. You can see Harcus latest ride report here

The product will be available on both of our websites Globetrottin and ADVmonster.

We look forward to your questions and feedback on the fairing, we've put a lot of effort into it and think it will be a great improvement over what's available.

More to come....

Pricing will run from a bit over $200 to over $300 depending on lights choosen.

Damn near ready for release. It will be worth the wait


DRZ pics


That looks great on the DRZ.

I'm curious about wind protection and buffeting/turbulence on the road - any experience yet?
