    Here is my 08/80 R80G/S. Not quite a dirt bike but quite capable, Seibenrock 1000cc kit and Racetech fork valve emulators, such pleasure to ride

    I remember it too and have searched every way including Sunday....and nada. It almost made me buy a 640 fairing.....I'm wondering if it was something @ontic posted.

    So I've decided to take this build in another direction and want to use a paralever setup and modern inverted forks. I'm looking to part with most of the components: Rebuilt rear wheel, final drive, RM250 conventional forks, wheel and custom machined triple clamp. Potentially the whole bike for someone itching for a decent project. If there's any interest out there shoot me a message, located in Richmond, VA.

    Looks like a pretty nice start just the way it is, why not just keep going?

    On the 640 Adventure the fairing is supported by brackets mounted on the tank lobes and at the headlight bracket. There are six total mount locations — 2 on the left tank lobe, 2 on the right lobe and then 1 on each side of the headlight.

    The dash is a little more complicated if that is being used (I suspect it’s not) but simply mounts on three studs (studs are on the dash assembly and align with three holes in front carrier).

    I happen to have a spare fairing/dash set up in the 2007 livery (orange) that seems a bit much to keep as a spare.
