    Finally all sorted :) We actually got some warm days and I got to take a ride today too! Very happy with it all in all, although the aerodynamics are still a bit violent in the helmet area for me at 186cm and a peaked helmet. Big thanks to Aurora for great service!

    Found similar effects myself; a small spoiler on top, oriented almost exactly vertical did the job. I will also add that the lighter the helmet, the more the buffeting is felt. With my stupid light endurocarbon helmet, it still wanted to bounce around, with or without peak. Heavier Shoei helmet, no problem. Will be trying an AGV9 later today will hopefully be the just right in between weight.

    Something like this? I found it helped pretty much up to a certain speed. But overall the wind protection to the body is really good and stable.

    Mostly. I tried that fancy one with no luck on the stock windscreen. I also tried a nice Touratech one on the Aurora screen with no luck. I then tried a $15 ebay one and it solved 95% of the buffeting. I’ll take a picture in a minute or three. Also, why is there a remote reservoir for your clutch when it looks like you still have the OEM master cylinder with integral reservoir?

    I liked my low fender too, but the fork guards are way too short if you go 270mm on the Pro suspension. I mean, obviously it fits, but it leaves a little more gap than I am comfortable with.

    For my riding I don't need 270mm travel :) I'm slow and old and have no intention of hitting anything where 270mm travel might be of use... The low guard certainly suits the aesthetic of the Aurora kit. Hmmm. another purchase coming up me thinks.

    You are right. The look of the Aurora Kit with the low fender is perfekt to me.

    I bought it and ordered a used low fender from ebay. It was the S, so it doesn't fit. :lol3

    @SoilSampleDave Good to know. If I am going to make the KTM perfect, there must be a solution for the Xplore Pro with a low fender.:photog

    Sweet, I actually have one of those in the garage :) Will try that next. Regarding the brake, I have a 17,5 mm radial front brake master on it that performs way better than original (Adeline pump from china, works great) and a left hand rear brake setup also.

    Any old 1090, 1190, 1290 low guard fits.

    I've got the same issue, USA spec bike. I don't have the dlr option in my menu. The hlu error comes up when I start the bike, so does the malfunction indicator light, when you go to the warning page it only shows the hlu error so I assume they are both in relation to the hlu. Also my low beam only comes on with the Aurora switch.

    The bus code in some 890s, irrelevant to where they are from at the moment, it's not the day lights or anything, the code itself is different now. @Yellow Pig 's light is on our CANbus developer and we are making a new bus controller with a switch to select bikes. Unknown from which 890s this started, some of them are ok from our customer base. we've stopped supplying controllers to 890s and we give only a simple harness and then as soon as the new controller is ready we will ship there.

    They don't make it easy, but we will get there.

    Pretty much done.

    The only things missing are the single sided brake and the Konflict H.A.S. Suspension.

    @640 Armageddon take a look at the bike in this post. I think there is a good chance that this fairing modification would significantly improve the airflow of the bike, and provide a better basis for modifying the airflow and allow riders flexibility in "tuning" for reduced/eliminated buffeting. It would also simplify the attachment of the fairings to the bike over your current design. If you had those panels available, I would order them today.
