    All,
    I can’t seem to find any threads regarding the AS mini fairing. I saw two sell in the past few months. I just came across these and am curious. Anyone have one?

    thanks 63CCD067-A44A-4D80-8D4D-BA768DD1AF53.png

    You might try asking this in the Equipment forum, or the forum for whichever bike you want to mount this on; e.g. Thumpers.

    Thanks. I wasnt sure the best location. I came here because it appears to be a GPS mounting option.

    Hi Guy's,

    I ordered one back on June 13. Just got the package in 07/03. I think there is a bit of a communication issue. I thought the $36 was for the whole thing... The website pitched it that way IMHO. Well for $36 plus $9.99 shipping you get just the plastic deflector.... Either shipping it back or buying the rest and eating more in shipping.

    FWIW I have the specific CRF450L version. Slightly different as it mounts on the triple clamps on that bike. For me, does a good job at blocking the wind on the chest/shoulder, leaves the head in smooth airflow.
    I think the bike in the picture has the brake line routed "rally style", most bikes will have the "going over the dashboard" brake line. This can interfere quite a bit with your gps/roadbook mounting, depending on how you do it (cradle like the picture or using a ram arm, or..). Nothing you can't do about it but it's good to know. I tilted the fairing all the way forward and did not use the "spacer" bracket designed to hold a gps cradle (directly bolted a ram ball) to gain clearance.

    I went ahead and ordered one. Adventure Spec says they're supposed to receive a shipment this week so hopefully we get them soon.

    Cool I’d be interested in your review once you install it. My issue is I’m afraid my front brake line is going to snag my RAM ball mount on a big bump and get damaged.
