    Great to hear. The neighberhood will never be the same. It's going to be one of a kind around here.

    I have been thinking about how I can make my Stealth fairing better. I considered customer and fellow ADV rider feedback and looked at the newer bike light designs (see below), DOT requirements etc. and came to the following conclusion:

    What is working on Stealth I:
    A bikini triple-mounted fairing does the job fine, even at high speed - who needs a full-bathing suit - :wink: (I should add pictures and you compare :eek1)
    My "wind-splitting" stealth design works and it is sturdy as a result of my triangle concept
    The fairing forward design is the way to go for safety and that cool rally bike look
    My attachment method is sturdy and simple, the flange bolts are bullet-proof - I crashed twice HARD and I just straightened the aluminium
    The dash area is awesome for electronics, it transforms a bike


    What should I add to Stealth II:
    Overall make the fairing a little bit shorter and more compact
    Make it slightly lighter
    Make the lip at the top longer so if someone wants to trim it down they still have the lip for wind deflection
    OEM lighting is coming along + LED OEM bulb plug in replacements are now available - why go non-DOT and spend 100's $
    Make a fairing that accomodate the new OEM lighting shapes (notice the V at the bottom of the lights below)
    Make the bottom section a bit narrower to accomodate more oversize tanks
    Provide a larger/ flatter, more flexible area (lower down) to accomodate the LARGE enduro lights and to easily surface mount non-OEM
    Location perfect for a "NACA" like vent to reduce high-pressure build-up at the front of the fairing

    I still like messing with this concept!!

    If you make something to fit a v-strom, you could make a killing. We (mostly) all hate the factory option.

    I think there are many bikes that come out of the gates with a difficient fairing. I don't have the resources to provide alternatives to bike specific fairings. I enjoy this project and the challenge to make a universal fairing since I foremost do this for fun and fundraising.

    I am happy to present the new STEALTH II Enduro Fairing

    New Features:
    New design
    Overall shorter and more compact
    Slightly lighter - under 2LB
    Make the wind deflection lip at the top longer -if someone wants to trim it down they still have some material left for deflection
    Make a fairing that accomodate the new OEM lighting shapes (notice the V at the bottom of the lights below)
    OEM lighting is coming along + LED OEM bulb plug in replacements are now available - why go non-DOT and spend several 100's $
    Make the bottom section a bit narrower to accomodate more oversize tanks
    Provide a larger/ flatter, more flexible area (lower down) to accomodate the LARGE enduro lights and to easily surface mount non-OEM
    Attachment - flange bolts embedded in fiberglass
    Can provide "uncut" so you can customize the depth/cut of the fairing yourself


    This should give you a good idea of the size and overall design that I feel will compliment the new angular/ triangle design that is found in most of the newer bikes - but also backwards compatible to bring that newer look to an older bike.

    Unfortunatley I will not have it on a bike for several weeks....I broke my hand while out riding down 12800ft American Flag Mountain -F!
    Reaching the summit @3:40 was pretty cool http://youtu.be/DuiOeQ3-Iwg

    So I just finished my touring windshield that I was working on. Was running low on cash so dropped the fiberglass idead and managed to pull it off with a 16gauge acrylic sheet that bolts on to the existing headlight fairing. Cost me $25 total.

    I thought I should atleast give aiMhi credit for the similarity in design. Most google searches popped up his stealth fairing and i came up with this weird looking thing. which surprisingly works great!

    I think that looks legit! If you are interested I am willing to work with you on getting one of my new Stealth 2 fairings since you took initiative to fix a problem yourself.

    Later,

    Thanks man! The Stealth 2 looks pretty gnarly. I plan on doing a complete overhaul of the bike (paint job, upgrade engine parts etc) this winter, which up here in upstate NY is fast approaching :cry. I'll definately get a hold of you on your latest disign then once I have some $$$ put away =). Keep up the good work!
