    My kit finally arrived - I believe it is one of the first kits in the US. I need to get the fairing painted locally then start assembly. Hopefully I can finish this in the next 2-3 weeks, which is a bit aggressive given my current work load, but I will give it a shot. I will try my best to document the installation on this thread.

    I think this kit will transform not only the look of the Super Enduro, but also make the bike computer readable (which is now completely obstructed by cables and wires), add space for a 6" road book and GPS, as well as vastly improve the poor stock lighting with two separate lights with a HID hi-beam. Can't wait!!

    Greetings Kurt,
    Please keep us posted with detailed info and pics.
    This setup looks like one I would actually buy, if the fit/finish/function is as good as it appears.
    I can't wait to hear your thoughts! :D

    P.S. What is the wattage (35w, 50w) and color (K) of each of the HIDs?

    So is the low fender a must or does the stock high fender still work?

    Thanks everyone for your interest in this project. To answer questions so far:

    $ - tbd

    Low beam is a halogen (could probably be converted to HID)

    High beam is HID - 35w, 4300k

    Low fender is not required. I am told it will work fine with the stock high fender.

    Once I get caught up from being at the Moab rally, I will start digging into this project. I have a few other parts I want to install at the same time so I need to run those down as well and get the fairing off to the local paint shop once I decide on a color scheme. Decisions, decisions.....

    WOW - THAT LOOKS SWEET. Thanks for sharing. Getting mine built out just moved up on the priority list!! Do I need to send you some new black dog stickers for skid plate? I think our new design would go with your color scheme pretty well and they are reflective.
