    Thanks for posting up Atravlr!

    Interesting setup there with the switch location. If you notice additional engine noise you might want to consider adding an ABS dash. Looks like your paint came out nice :)

    Let me know how she rolls now!

    Later,

    If ABS means the carbon fiber you sent I still have that. Yet now I will have to do some tricky cutting. I angled my speedometer so I can glance at the face and I know 60 is straight up, and added the battery charger line up front also. Noise level is not bad, a liitle vibration sounds in the gears up to 45 mph but after that it smooths out and I dont hear a sound. The key is on the far left of the fairing down low so it's hard to notice. Thanks for your effort in helping me Skip and the guys at AZ Cycle Sports in Lake Havasu.

    Oh ok, sorry I forgot I made you the CF dash. I am always amazed at the creativity of people that want something different :)

    This project has been slow-going for me, in fact I'm not done. In any case here are a few pictures of the fairing.

    You did a good job. Was it a little to tall. Thinking about trimming mine down but what to keep the lip at the top.

    Yeah the thing is you can't make it longer if its too short and cutting it is easy. On Stealth 2 I made the lip pretty "long" to allow for several inches in height adjustment.

    I like the look of yours a lot better then the globetrottin one. Little more $$ but I think it may be worth it! :D

    I really need to take some new foto's with Stealth II on my bike since what I have out here gives it no justice. Only problem is my bike is in a 100 pieces, going thought it front to back after I kissed terra firma hard, so If things warm up around here then I can get some work done on her.

    I saw this fender in passing, some time ago and now I'm finalizing my Zuma 125 offroad conversion... found this thread in my searches and am so pleased to know you're in South Denver.

    I'll be posting up a build thread (I mostly peruse Zumaforums regarding this).

    Maybe when I'm ready to get that custom HID set-up going, front-fender [reduction] (bug-eye deleting/smoothing), etc, we can put our heads together for coming up with the bracket. I would love to do business with you. If all goes well, I'll be installing a chassis brace this weekend and actually hitting up some dirt this Sunday for the first time (with the Zuma).

    If you don't have any allergies to scooters, this could work out. :clap

    If not, well, I'll understand. :cry

    Hi K-Chil - I have no allergy to scooters LOL! I spent some of the most fun times of my life cruising the Islands of Greece on a scooter and actually ramped a scooter a couple times at a BMX track...

    I like it when people do something themselves to solve a challenge and use their creative side, even if it comes out to be something you don't want, you tried and had some fun during the journey. I don't live to do the same thing every day.

    You are welcome to stop by and moc something up, even just to try it out for size (which I think might be an issue). I can also give you some tips on designing and making something if you care to do that.

    Just pm me and we can arrange a time.

    Thank you so much.

    Yeah, the Zuma has grown on me over the past year or so that I've had it. When I bought it, it was just a commuter and allowed my GF to use my car during the summer (the car-pool was a mess with our schedules). I guessed I would get 70mpg and did the math; the bike would pay for itself in 2 years (less now, with real-world 90mpg). Then I just grew to love it, no longer feeling an immediate need for another "real" bike. Naturally, I've dumped a lot of money into it now (not part of the original plan), not for repairs, but for upgrades and while it still gets 90 mpg, it might take another year or two before it "pays for itself." :D

    Well, you might surprised; when you take off the speedo-cluster on the Zuma 125, there's a nice protruding plate coming off the stem, ready to mount just about anything you can dream up, or so I hope.

    I'm not even using the speedo at the moment, because it's incompatible with my aftermarket spoked wheel (or requires cannibalizing the old wheel, which I'm not in a hurry to do); mainly just relying on phone GPS to track mileage. It's currently mounted, but it's only function is the indicator lights and fuel gauge (which I don't really need). Planning to eventually get an accurate digital gauge, but I'm waiting on some enterprising Taiwanese people to make something compatible with the aftermarket wheel of mine. But I digress.

    Thanks again for the offer. I will definitely be contacting you in the near future. Possible very soon!
