    No, the Phoenix remains as is, but just about everbody now goes for the twin HID with the new lower pricing. I'm afraid the Phoenix is in it's last year now.Very little demand as the model gets older :cry

    I break out into a sweat everytime someone mentions the Tiger. I've looked at it and it would be an absolute pain to do, the way they have designed it ! Is the OEM that bad ?

    Not terrible, but I'm a huge fan of the way these products look and function.

    Dont give up, sweat it out! :wink:

    I'm currently awaiting Ian's Lynx to put on my Wr250R. I'll be posting a link to the installation as soon as it gets here:deal

    So far, I've seen only one WRR with the Lynx, and it looked pretty good and functional as well.

    I was in the same spot as you, I could only find a few pics of a Yamaha WR250R/X with a Lynx. Since installing my own I feel I'm obligated to contribute to the internet's collective knowledge in the hopes it will help somebody else decide.

    I just went out to the garage and snapped these pics w/ my phone.

    Well, I guess while we are at it, I should show off my own WR Lynx ! Yes, I know it's blue and that's not an option on the website, but this one was specially painted for me and was an absolute $#^%*% to colourmatch apparently ! You'll also notice it looks slightly different from the previous photos. Mine is the latest one with a slightly better mounting system.

    Hey Muramasa57 nice looking bike... one question? Who's laminar setup have you got mounted to the top of your screen? I like that a lot for the long cross continent rides! And where is the lowest point you can remove it when in the woods?
    Ok two questions sorry... :lol3

    Thank you,
    JJ

    Hello

    Has anybody fitted any rally gear with lynx fairing? Is there enough room for roadbook holder, odometer(e.g. ICO Rally VR). If someone has fitted these things please post some pics! :)

    Jim,
    The screen is an MRA X-Creen Sport that I bought from twisted throttle. Unfortunately I haven't been able to ride with it yet as I bought it right before it started snowing. It is a clip on so you can take it off in the woods if you want, if you feel more confident with a drill you can bolt it on as well. Twisted throttle has some videos on their site showing how it adjusts if that would help you out more.

    That looks like a neat extension for the taller guys. I'm not sure when you got your Lynx, but the screen height was increased by 2" last October as standard.

    Cheers Ian

    I'd be interested to see if someone has done this also. The dash is ABS plastic, and I'm not sure I'd trust it to hold a large road book in race conditions. It holds a GPS and instrument cluster ok, but much more than that might be pushing it.

    The Lynx has been fitted with Rally instruments before and it is certainly strong enough. I don't have photos, but can give you the dimensions of the face of the dash : 9" top to bottom of flat face, 7" wide at the top, 10" wide at the bottom. Hope this helps.

    Thank you for the information, much appreciated!

    Hmmm that's really good to know! My screens are both from 2012, do you have the taller screen in smoke as well? And any additional width?

    Thanx a lot,
    Jim

    No wider, just taller. If you want more width ( and the same height as the new Lynx screen), the Mirage 2 screen fits and that's about 1 1/2" wider. The only downside is that more width means more vulnerability in a fall. :cry All available tint or clear.

    Great info... Thank you! :deal I will measure my screen and email you about options. How long has this Mirage 2 been in your arsenal? Perhaps that's the screen I got from you the last time around. :augie:hmmmmm I will go measure it now.

    Thanx again,
    Jim

    Ian I need a complete motorcycle dash makeover! :lol3

    I'm the one that asked recently about combining the Lynx with the bigger Highway Dirt Bikes top clamp/vapor computer.

    Here's my present "dash:"

    [​IMG]

    And another night time shot with my broken odometer:

    [​IMG]

    So at the present time, my lighting sucks (you can see the remainder of the messes of the myriads of things I've tried), my digital gauge is broken, my top clamps don't really match the bottom clamps, I've got headlight wires and buttons everywhere, my key is hard to get to and I really like to clean the whole mess up.

    I'm open to other suggestions, but what I'm thinking now is:

    1. Highway dirtbikes Top Clamp with
    - vapor computer & their billet holder
    - relocated ignition key (grind off original)
    - switches to turn off head light and for auxiliary lighting
    - 12 volt outlet

    2. Lynx fairing with Hella 90mm Xenon Low beam + 90mm Xenon Hi-Lo headlamp.

    So do you think that would be compatible Ian? Any better ideas? I suppose much of the stuff I wanted to mount to the Highway dirtbikes top clamp I could mount to the Lynx dash?
    My first thought on that though was on my really hard rides in the jungle I'd probably take the dash off.

    I've mounted up my new Lynx with HID on my sparkly new 690 Enduro R, but the HIDs won't stay on. The low beam fires, flickers for a few seconds and then goes out. High beam same deal.

    Neat observation is that my ABS light is on now, but I haven't had a chance to ride it since I got it from the dealer a week ago. 27 total miles, stuck-on ABS light, non-functioning headlights.

    Anybody have suggestions on what to check on the headlight front? Emails to Ian and the Brittania site have gone unanswered.
