Lynx Fairing Install

I'm still waiting on time to finish the second version of the install.

After installation of our fairings, we contacted Ian at Britannia because at full decompression of the front suspension, the front brake cable would contact the instrument cluster and rub on it. To help this we cut out a much larger opening for the cable and moved the instrument cluster. I put mine on the handlebar clamps.

Ian has redesigned the dash to be mounted forward of the bars instead of underneath them. No more binding according to Getafix who's already done the install. The opening for the cables will likely still need to be made bigger.

I have also started to run the fairing without the windscreen. I find the air cleaner and thus less noisy. One of the thumb screws would keep coming loose.

Both Getafix and I have had several of the original bulbs burn out. We contacted Ian and he's sent out replacement with apologies. Wonderful service.
Ride on.
