    If it is not too much of a hassle you should take a pic when you take the fairing off to show your connection points. There are some other DR650 users that are interested in what you did.

    Thank you Max!

    No problem. I will also post a pic when I get to painting it.

    I did not take the actual fairing off out of laziness (sorry). But these are the attachment points I used for the dr650.

    If you have the stock dr650 shroud on your bike like I did, you can see that it is connected at 3 points. One screw on the bottom and two bolts on the sides.
    I used all 3 of these mounting points by drilling a hole through the bottom of the fairing into the bottom attachment, then attaching the fairing to the side mounting points by using a Alluminum rod/stick thing that I got at a harware store and used a vice to bend it to the proper angles for it to fit.

    To me the most difficult part to this fabrication was the bending of the metal to get the right angles to work. Keep in mind that I did cut the fairing at the bottom to my liking so this happened to work (OEM headlight was the reason I cut the bottom of the fairing so I could use the stock headlight attachment points and place the headlight on the "flat spot" of the fairing)
    Feel free to ask more questions!

    hey Bern,

    may i say, you're bike's looking awesome :clap

    that rack kinda looks a bit,, err,, large, when nothing's strapped to it, but i checked out you're photos in you're ride report & with all you're gear strapped on, it makes perfect sense, looks to be a very solid platform with the lower mounting points to help support the load. ATTA BOY ( you need to post a photo here with it loaded up )

    it's been a couple of months since my fairing arrived, ( as you know ) & had planned on it being on by now,, but life gets in the way of our plans sometimes

    anyways, i started on the rear of the bike this weekend, & will work towards the front by next weekend, will post up some photos as i go

    a couple of photos of my progress

    it looked tike this in the beginning

    [​IMG]

    the LH radiator was trashed,, so i just started slowly ordering & collecting parts thru the winter/spring

    a new seat was first on the list

    [​IMG]

    doh,, wrong one, lol

    [​IMG]

    seat is comfy as hell

    new plastics & led's in the ass end

    [​IMG]

    all new cables / radiators / thermostat / hoses / risers

    & started mocking up the fairing ( which totally transforms the stance of the bike )

    [​IMG]

    i'll have to re-fit the dash because of the risers, but no biggie

    [​IMG]

    this thing's gonna be badass, thanks Bern for hooking me up :clap

    That's some clean lookin bikes there NorCal Dog and your dash looks great. BTW on the bottom mounting point for the XR650R you can drop the rubber OEM grommets on the bottom and just use the nut / crush washer on the bottom of the mounting points to mount it up.

    Later,

    had a bit of time to mess with it today & i added a bit more aluminum to the mounts & got the dash mounted via 1/2" wire clamps mounted to the crossbar on the bars, worked out perfectly. now all i gotta do is fab another bracket for the top hole & it's a done deal. then on to wiring everything up.

    didn't care for the mounting brackets that came with the led's, so i figured i'd go with plan B & mount the lights directly to the fairing

    this is the mount that i came up with, quite simple, fully adjustable, & after it's 'glassed in & with the correct fasteners it'll be bulletproof

    Yeah Norcal Dog, you are onto something, that looks sharp. Especially since you can adjust the light angle precisely using the nuts/bolts and lock them + plus you just got yourself a bigger heatsink for the led's. Just add one of the dimmers that are floating around and you are set.

    Anyone in the audience - I do add flange bolts embedded into the fairing if you want now and that is what I run on my rig to support my lights.

    Good sanding down the glass to make the new glass bond. I love the smell of resin - it makes me think of working on my surfboard, the waves, surfwax, the beach, bikini's - LOL!

    Some pics of my ADV friend Kajj from Sweden running the Stealth on his ADVersys. It was a fun collaboration - he gave me precise measurements and I cut the holes for the lights 5000 miles away. He got this mounted up fast.

    Just need some paint on it and he is set; I dont think he can decide between blue or black.

    and mounted :clap

    the led's are currently just stuck in the holes, but after it's up & rolling again there's tons of adjustability for aiming the beam

    ( now waiting on a TM40 coming in from the power barn )
