    Still trying to find a 'donor' bike to get going. Where have they all gone ? There used to be thousands of these bikes everywhere !

    I think most of them were abandoned in Death Valley. :rofl

    Everyone I've known with a BC fairing loved it including myself. Keep up the good work Ian.

    Hello Ian,

    Would it be possible to add the color SILVER in your color choice for the side stickers for the fairings. Many bike have silver in their color scheme so it might be a versatile choice for many, gives people a choice over OEM color scheme and add a personnal touch.

    Thanks for listenning.

    Yes, we are currently looking into decal designs and adding silver would be a good idea.:clap

    A happy customer testament:

    I've had my Lynx mounted on my WRR all this season. It proved to be a worthwhile accessory, keeping me comfortable on longer trips, at higher speeds, and during crappy weather. The lights (I went with normal, halogen) are very bright and powerful. I did burn one low beam bulb:deal from all the trail shaking.

    Now, here is the best part - I managed to dump the bike here and there (not a lot), and I even managed to hit a tree doing some singletrack on two separate occasions. (at low speed). Both times, the fairing came in contact with the tree, and one of those times I broke off my aux LED light mounted on the forks. The fairing stayed intact, without any issues whatsoever. :clap

    A great product, Ian! Thank you.

    Thanks for posting this - i've been considering getting a Lynx and it's good to hear it's working for you.
    I read your build notes - are you happy with the key relocation in the end, think it's worth the effort? :ear

    Hey Ian, is this free shipping I see on your site restricted to North America? :wink:

    <!--[if gte mso 9]><xml> <o:OfficeDocumentSettings> <o:AllowPNG/> </o:OfficeDocumentSettings> </xml><![endif]--> I’m looking to pick up the Lynx R with the 55W HID/42W LED lighting pair for a G650X, and as usual am struggling to get the most out of my limited available wattage.



    Here’s what I’m looking at doing:
    1. Install a dimmer on the LED light
    2. Reverse wire the lights: LED w/dimmer would be on the low beam (constant-on) switch, HID on high beam. This would let me utilize the higher power 55W/42W lighting by allowing adjustment to the constant-on (low/LED) beam to balance between the need for light and the need for heated gear or other accessories, depending on the situation.



    Has anyone done something similar? I’m no electronics wizard; is there anything glaring I’m overlooking?

    I think this may be over complicating things a bit. Firstly, it isn't an option to use the Hi beam LED as a low beam even if it's dimmed. It's a completely different light pattern and would be useless in the low beam role, which is why we don't fit an LED in the projector.

    However, all is not lost ! I can tell you that the new HID bulbs that we have just moved onto produce more light than the 55w we used just a month ago ! A whopping 4000 lumens !

    My suggestion is that you go for the new 35w HID low beam, but have the 42w LED on the high beam. You can then get a dimmer for the High if you feel it's necessary for power saving, although I would try it as it is with all your other electrical gear, because you may be surprised that the bike has no problem running all this given that the High beam is not normally on constantly for hours on end.

    This light combo is not shown on our website as an option, so it would be best to contact me directly if you want to go this way.

    Hope this helps

    Got my Lynx a while back. Forgot to post install pics as I was busy building my DR800, getting ready to take it to Alaska in 2016.

    The kit:
    Excellent quality, better than....basically anything that came on the bike stock. FAR exceeded my expectations. FAR FAR EXCEEDED.

    [​IMG]

    Cockpit / Dash:
    I got the Lynx because I wanted a dashboard to hold all my crap. Fuse block, farkle Switches, Vapor Tach, battery charge indicator, new ignition switch, SAE socket for heated vest

    [​IMG]

    Wiring Loom
    Allows for power to aux items while the bike is on, and off (I think)
    [​IMG]

    Dash Install:
    Remove everything, even the handlebar risers. Install Dash, then remount your bars. The dash fits under the risers using the stock bar bolts. YOu will need to loosen the top fork clamps, pull the forks down a bit, remove the stock headlight mounting brackets, that fit around the forks, then re-install the forks. The brackets will rub the fairing. (that was never clearly identified in the instructions)
    [​IMG]

    For the DR650, you WILL need to replace the stock ignition switch. I used a Honda ATV switch, and mounted it on the left side of the dash on the side pannel.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Fitting all the cables through the cable slot on the left side required a little extra trimming with the dremmel. In 3k miles, I've had zero issue, and no rubbing. SOLID design.


    My electrical rats nest.
    This looks messy, but its quite clean. Space for a LOT of crap under there.
    [​IMG]

    Windscreen
    I'm 5'11". I have 2" taller seat. The stock windscreen was about 3" too short at the highest setting. A windscreen from the Mirage 2 for an 800GS windscreen replaced it. I am much happier now.

    [​IMG]

    This is an outstanding product. I am VERY happy with its performance, rigidity, durability, design, look. My only issue is the HID Lexan cover. I had to add a washer under the cover to elevate the cover or it would rub and vibrate on the fairing. Buzzing was a little annoying. I also found the instructions to be a little lacking a time or two. Think about what you are doing, and take your time.

    Ian was extremely helpful, communicative and provides OUT-FUCKING-STANDING customer support. Its a pricy product, but if you want a VERY nice quality product, and the Lynx suits your needs, just do it.

    Finally mounted my Lynx R fairing on my XR650L. Apparently I'm the first guy to mount one of these on an XR650L and it went very well. Ian at Brittania Composites was great and was always quick to answer my calls and emails. This is a major upgrade to this otherwise dated dinosaur of a bike. The new lighting is incredible, and now I WANT to ride at night :D. Aside from working out a few vibrations where the dash was in contact with the fairing it has been an easy installation.

    The dash was the fun part, as I was able to layout the farkles to my liking. I'm still shopping for a GPS so I've the prime real estate open at the top of the dash. The wiring for the Lynx R fairing was very straight forward but wiring the Trailtech Vapor has been a royal PITA! ....it's not plug and play, that's for sure. I also put on a set of Baja Designs LED turn signals so I required a different relay. I still have to hook up the Vapor speedo, engine temp sensor and tach wires.

    Looking tidy.
    What system are you using to mount your phone?
