Stem, I'm not a fan of the triple look.

What lights have you used for this?
Why are the lights so far forward? Is it clearance issues or is it just the photo's that make it look that way?

I did correspond with Paul about making brackets for my bike, but he was busy at the time and I just let things fall by the wayside.......It's probably going to be a "next winter" project.

Thanks for posting the photos.

Cheers

I have used the VisionX Optimus Round's
VisionX.com

Why are the lights so far forward? Is it clearance issues or is it just the photo's that make it look that way?

They do stick out quite far forward... the reason behind this is because the roadbook is laid very flat to be able to read it while standing up at speed

this was how the roadbook was... impossible to read while standing up without leaning back and ducking down to read it



After that I cut the original fairing and it allowed some more room.




This was still not enough... the decision then was made to scrap the fairing and A) have a "Rallye Lite" style setup B) to have LED's instead of the HID C) to have a easily removable fairing to access important wiring quickly - the reason for this was to remove the original orange fairing you had to first remove the seat then remove the gas tank to access four bolts hidden by the tank - PITA!

finish product turned out nicely and I have been VERY VERY happy with all Paul's service he has provided me!

more dakar style tilt to the roadbook




I did correspond with Paul about making brackets for my bike, but he was busy at the time and I just let things fall by the wayside.......It's probably going to be a "next winter" project.

Thanks for posting the photos.

Cheers

Ben;
Thanks for all the answers and what you have done makes more sense knowing why!
Was it Paul that made the Nav tower for you??

I do have his handguards,so I know the quality of workmanship.

Thanks again for the info!

Cheers

I purchased the fairings from Paul. My bike already had the stem mounted subframe.

Sorry for the absence guys, we've been hammered with guard orders and are barely keeping up right now.

The production versions of the 106 and 100mm towers will be finished up next week with any luck, and then I'll try and get them on the site. Then I can look at a 96mm for the DRZ's, so hang in the Hamilton.

Ben, you've been busy, thanks for the lead on the VisionX LED's.

I've been looking at a frame mounted production version, but not sure if I want to make a bolt on or force guys to weld frame mounts and I know this might be stepping out for most guys, but they'll most likely be HDPE. It's down the road a bit, but we have proto's out there being tested.



Another version in testing,

Anything you make I will stand behind, and buy... So when you get around to it you can count on at least one sale, ha ha. Hdpe sounds great to me. The only thing about welding, I would like to see an alignment system built in. Otherwise I think bolt on for most of us is just fine. Love your guys work, keep it up!

Question for Motorfiets

I see Vision X offers a range of beam spreads from 10-60 degrees.

Which Vision X lights did you get, the reflectors on yours look different? Have you tested them at night yet?

These may be a viable alternative to the Squadron lights?

Cheers,

Adrian

Asked the same about the vision x.. The reflectors are big on those. I would expect it should have some pretty serious throw.

Paul, stuff is looking great. The hdpe is pretty good I think and cheap to replace. I have been using it successfully with some pretty high speed. A get off that does damage to the hdpe is also more than likely going to bend up some aluminum...
