Couple of questions. I copied the URL for the pics and looked at a couple of others you had taken.

Have you mounted the entire headlight unit from the steerer stem bracket you fabricated? Yes...the 6mm al. stem plate attached by the al. clamps is very strong. Most fairings including Mecca system rally fairings are supported by a single stem bracket (which is where I got the idea from). Some like to weld the plate to the stem but I wasn't willing to risk cooking anything and wanted to keep the frame original.

How did you mount or attach the fairing to the safari tank? Fairing is indepenant of the tank.
Do you get any buffeting that you know of from the fairing considering how vertical it is in the pics? Some buffeting i'm (6',1") though. Not as bad as my 990 was!!
Does the light unit or fairing vibrate at all at speed while on smooth roads? No virations at all...even over rutted ground. I noticed some head shake though at 160 klm (100mph) in stong cross wind... but that was on test run...I don't generally ride at that speed (honest!!) so its not a problem.


p.s. If you get the chance can you take some close up pics of the headlight/fairing mounts with a better resolution? happy to when I get the chance
