    I would be in for one for a 650 BMW Dakar. If it is as sexy as the one for the x challenge I would probably take one for the wifes 650 also.

    Any progress on the Dakar fairing? Another vendor has them now but it
    doesn't look so good.

    I am interested as well. Is this a possibility for you to make? Or is this not likely to happen?

    Hey Man,

    If you can look at making one of these for a DR650 with IMS tank, I will buy 5-10 of them from you, and then look to sell them on to inmates and all comers. PM me, I can provide pictures measurements etc. (ps will sell them on at cost for inmates, and I work for a freight company so will keep the cost down). The more the better I presume??

    I dont know what the market would be but I think you might be able to drum up some business from the pre '99 Tiger owners. The Tiger fairing is less than desireable.

    PM'ed and emailed you.

    Though I doubt this would work out of the box with my DRZ ... I'm sure I could get something fabbed up to fit.

    Anyone received any of their fairings yet? Any reviews, photos of install, etc.?


    Many thanks,

    Hi all,

    slowly there has been made quite some progress in creating the subframe for the XChallenge fairing. Slowly but surely we're reaching a product. Measuring is done, a prototype has been built and the subframe is in CAD now:

    (CAD drawing)

    [​IMG]
    (Jut and Jul deciding instrument positions)

    things to do:

    - define the length of the central spine
    - find the right bulbs that will get through TÜV
    - finetune fairing and headlamp assembly location
    - make the upper part somewhat modular, being able to suit both adventure- and rally riders (riding and reading the instruments sitting down vs standing up, allowing different dash angles and layouts)
    - get enough fairings (!!)
    - and finally (don't underestimate this though), fix all unforeseen problems...


    Cheers from Cheesecountry,

    Erik and Max
