    There will be new Lynx for the 690/500 EXC in the fall that will be styled in a similar way to our new Voodoo 990 fairing with the same lights [​IMG]

    Looks great but ........... will the low beam light be too low in the fairing? I run a fender bag on the front with tube and tire stuff that may block some of the light?

    It's a good point and I was aware that this style would not be suited to fender packs for the reason you have given. It would be in the way !

    The only thing I can say is that the 'R' is not intended to be a replacement for the existing Lynx, so the option will be there for guys wanting to use fender bags.

    Riding across Labrador right now with the current style Lynx on my bike, just today standing and looking over the screen at my fender and was thinking the very same thing about the new Lynx... got wifi in Lab City to get a better look at the light placement and see that we think the same.
    I've always used a Fender bag as well for a tube, powder and a patch kit.

    Looks like I'll need to get creative again...

    Ian,
    With the Lynx, if running each light is 35w, wouldn't that make running both at the same time draw75w? Does running the bulbs at high or low change the draw?

    Each lamp is different . The low beam lamp remains on all of the time and is drawing 35w. When the Hi is switched, the Hi comes on in addition to the low, so you have both lights on and the draw is 70w.

    No bikes have a problem running this as the draw on low beam is actually lower than stock and there's no problem powering the 70w for the periods of time a Hi beam is normally used.

    :freaky :clap

    No no, I know. I am just trying to determine what kind of electrical load I am putting on my stator with all the other dumb shit I'm installing on it.

    Thanks for clarifying. :deal I'll be ordering mine in the next few weeks once I get the core charge credit back from ProCycle for my 790 kit :wink:

    Nothing more to specifically update you regarding the KLR kit, other than the work on the the new R is done and we are are just getting the parts together for production starting at the beginning of October.

    We are actively looking to 'borrow' both new and older KLR's locally to get the KLR kits done, which will be pretty straightforward. Unfortunately, trying to get a hold of either models before October is challenging as everyone tries to get the best out of the rest of the riding season up here !

    One thing that I haven't made clear is that both the existing Lynx and the new R fit with the same mounting hardware and share the same dashboards and screens so, when the new fitting kits are done, guys will have a choice over which 'look' they prefer as fit and function of the two fairings will be the same .

    Cheers Ian

    ^ niiice!



    Ian,
    1) does the cockpit for the LDR650 Lynx come pre trimed to accomodate access to the ignition? If so, can I opt out of that?
    2) When ordering the Lynx with sockets, does the fairing come with the socket installed, or do I do that myself (trim the cockpit)?

    Hi Ian!

    Any luck in finding a friendly f650gs single owner willing to let you do your magic with the lynx series fairing?

    I got a question...since the f650gs as a fixed headlamp, do you think your kit could be fitted oem style with the proper brackets while keeping a good fit with the stock fender beak?
    Other option being fork mounted but since the fake tank as on each sides long side forward fins, would'nt it be a problem as for clearance when turning full lock?

    Keep me informed.

    It's still a bit early to be getting guys off their bikes to 'donate' it for a month, so more likely to get going towards the end of Oct.

    There won't be a problem with the tank shrouds, but the point you make about fixed vs steering is something we will look at when we get at it.

    Cheers Ian
