    Good comments, Mr Ken

    And we know you put some skin into one of these projects so you know it is not a 5 minute job.

    Graphics - John & I have talked about this at some length. I think both of us have had higher priorities. But if you have any visions, please share them.

    Stand off - The design of the fairing brackets & fork brackets was designed for flexibility from day one. This fairing can be positioned as far forward (within reason) as you like. The best way to do this is to use (2) fork bracket kits which gives you 4 fork bracket mount points. You can now insert any width spacer bracket between the fairing brackets & the fork brackets. As an example, you could fab a piece of sheet metal 2 in wide x about 7 in high, insert (4) holes at .5 in edge margin to match the holes in the fairing bracket. Do 2 of these. Assemble this and wa - la, the fairing is now 1 inch further forward.

    if this is unclear, let me know. I will provide pics.

    Thanks for your thoughts.

    Jim :D

    Still wanting to get one of these for my LC4, trying to figure how to maintain my dash/speedo.
    Also wondering if it would be a good choice as my bike sees a lot of low speed off road and trails.

    (mostly because I ride slow) :D

    "Maintain my dash / speedo"? Is you setup different than OEM? The fairing clears all OEM equipment. What is your setup? :D

    That is "great" news! Have communicated with Harcus several times regarding this and sent pix of our light brackets... There are tons of these WR250-R's/X out there. I will hold off on purchasing until there is a WR specific unit. Looking for PnP!

    Keep up the great work!

    Nope, stock LC4. Just not sure if I can keep it in the same place.
    Need to look at it closer I guess.

    Awesome build sanjoh! And a decent price, I am coming up with excuses not to buy it. Might be easier if you post where you can buy and update your initial post.

    I really dig the fairing. Do you also sell a plug in case of running 1 light only?

    I'm getting one for my DR350. Really looking forward to it. :clap

    There were some pictures of flush mounted turn signals on some of the earlier pictures. Any info on where those can be obtained?

    I am almost ready to pull the trigger, but need some info. I will be installing on a DRZ 400. From what I have seen the electrical is PnP. So if I do not purchase the dimmer, will I be able to switch low and high beam or do I have to have the dimmer module to do that? And if that is the case does it work on the factory switch? Thanks!

    Sanjoh: My "vintage" XL 600 has an AC headlight system. Any solutions?

    On mine I have the bottom light set for low beam at about 50% of max (and it's about as good as the stock light on hi-beam!), and, with my factory switch, I can then go to full on on both lights, which is incredible. I also run a pair of Solstice 10s aimed pretty wide so that on low beam I still have the sides of the road covered for the pesky critters that are out there. I also have both the fairing lights and the Solstice lights on their own switches so I can turn them off for starting or when I'm running the heated grips and the heated jacket. I really, finally, feel I have adequate - great, actually - lights on my DR650.

    Any pics of your setup? I'm putting one of the fairings on a DR350 and am curious how much the Solstices help. Right now I'm just planning on running the fairing with two lights but you've got me thinking of adding some lights to help illuminate the sides.

    So you need the dimmer module to accomplish that?

    That's my belief. Course, I suspect if you had an in with electrons (which I decidedly do not) you might be able to do it some other way.

    See posts 169, 170 and 171 of this thread. The Solstice lights don't show up very well, because that wasn't what I was trying to show. I mounted them where the front side reflectors usually are (probably in violation of several laws). In post 171 you can just see the right one from behind.

    Has anyone mounted one on a KTM 690 Enduro? Got any pics? The stock lighting on my bike is easily the worst i've even seen. Would the stock signals need to be relocated at all?
