Nice job floarint that front wheel SDH! How does it handle at higher speeds 60mph+ ?
Little vibration. Stable. Good wind protection.
FINALLY got the XRR back on the road today
may I say I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS FAIRING !!!
put close to 60 miles on it today, & got some time in on the slab at speed ( 65/85 ) & it takes ALL the wind pressure & buffeting off your chest/helmet
ya know, i liked riding this pig before,, now will probably be on this more than my Harley :eek1
i'll post up some photos shortly
Just wanted to post a few pics of the bike. I didn`t paint the fairing, I painted the side cowlings instead
The fairing works perfect
looks great on the versys
How can you see? Looks too tall to see over. Does look great though.
hehe. My chin is in about he same height as the top of the fairing. So there`s no problem seeing over it.
In fact this screen has improved my riding as I now have to look further ahead
I did tend to look to close to the front wheel when riding offroad earlier.
here's a couple of photos
i've got it set up with a Kisan modulator on the M60 high beam, & a Skene P3 on the ass end
Looking saweet man You did a great job on the dash and putting both your bikes together.
Your end result is exactly as you described it when we talked
I need to scope out the Skene and M60 options you put on there.
Ride On Brother!!
thanks for the compliment
i've got close to 500 miles on the pig since last week & i'm totally satisfied with you're fairing
i'm running two dimmers on the front led's ( man, them suckers is bright ) with the Kisan P115W headlight modulator & let me tell you, people SEE you with this setup, i've had cars literally change lanes & let me pass while running the modulator, i have them on both bikes & wouldn't ride without them
& on the ass end i put the Skene P3 tail light / brake light / turn signal lighting system & it totally lights it up when i hit the brakes
definitely do check them both out
might be interested in the rack that you're running, ( with a couple of mods of course ) if i could talk ya into whipping one out
pm me if you'd be interested
The rack - that is a tough one my friend, at least my "Arachna Rack" which is not a simple little 4 bolt hookup rack.
Basically there is two parts to it and it is a one-off. I built my own steel subframe to replace the aluminium POS and then I built the rack. This bike in particular have around 18 connection points if I recall correctly (other things connect to the rack) and it is not simmetrical. I recommend to check out the Globetrottin Rack but thanks for asking:
Man, I wish I had seen this thread earlier. Got sick and tired of the stock and boring aftermarket windshield that are available for the XR650L. Started fabricating my own about a week ago in hopes of coming up with a good fiberglass piece. Hopefully mine comes out as awesome as this. Here are some build pics
P.S- Never worked with fiberglass before so any leads and tips would be appreciated
And rode the bike 100 miles today. AWESOME. I experienced a bit of uncomfortable buffeting from the top of the fairing, and also noticed a bit of extra road noise that seemed to come from reflection of engine noise.
However, I think with the top 2-3 inches cut off, this fairing is going to kick ass. It's solid as a rock on the highway at speeds, cuts wind very well, and is very impressive looking from the front.
I didn't do the best of jobs doing the cut-out for the front headlight, but it doesn't look too bad. I'm STOKED.
Here's a picture of the fairing on the front of my 2009 DR650se. I don't have the carbon fiber dash plate up yet. But it'll come.
Nice man and great job taking initiative!!!
You are welcome to call me to chat about it and I can give you some pointers and some important points of safety. My number is on my website www.aimhi-enduro.com
Sorry for the delay - just came back from the Rocky Mountain Adventure Rally in Silverton CO - OMG that place is heaven for riding - people reading this YOU NEED TO ATTEND NEXT YEAR. Besides the riding we gave away
$10 000 worth of freebie prizes anything from $1000 Klim Jackets, iPads to keychains!
Later - B
Thanks for posting up bigalsmith101
Looks good man, yeah if you trim it down a bit it works fine as well, I took 2 inches off and im 6ft4.5
You need to tag that thing with some paint! My vote is matte black. I actually tag mine with a gloss enamel, let it dry really well (1 day) and then tag it with a clear matte or just use matter paint.
My long term plan is to design another fairing over the winter and apply lessons learnt and ...... well you will just have to wait and see
Thanks man! I'll definitely hit you up soon.
Also, I've been meaning to get out west, but looks like I'll be stuck up here in NY for the rest of the year. Will def. have to make it a point to get out there next year. The rally sounds like a lot of fun (also the freebies )
Some Vids from The Rocky Mountain Adventure Rally - Silverton CO
There was $10K in door prizes and some of the best riding on this planet
$5000,00 total donated to COHVCrg to keep our trails open in the Rocky Mountains
MARK YOUR CALENDAR - SAME TIME - SAME PLACE NEXT YEAR - just sayin
The food AWESOME - now this is real fire!!

Headlight is wrapped in "Super firm closed cell foam"
Dash area yet to have carbon plate installed.
Right side view.
Full Frontal View
Solid as a rock at free way speeds, and very noticeable difference over standard Dr650 headlight cover. Much improved! Great for long distance riding. I had to cut mine down about 3 inches in the front, and I'm very happy with it now.
Alex - Ok dude, I am going to say it myself that black looks badass and you have officially figured out the brackets for the DR650!
If you need a flangebolt for the top of the carbon fiber dash connection point let me know or HDepot have some wood flange bolts that could double since it does not need much up there. Just put a minor bend in the middle of the flat area and it goes right in the "fold" on the inside. Once you put the dash on it will contain some of the sound being deflected up and transform your bike from a dirt bike to an Adventure bike.
On the carbon fiber dash - I was a bit concerned that the epoxy was not 100% set when I sent it off so let me know if it hardened up ok - carbon fiber epoxy can be a pita - fiberglass is cake compared to it.
Can't wait to get my fairing. So i can start working on it.
