a couple of photos of my progress

it looked tike this in the beginning



the LH radiator was trashed,, so i just started slowly ordering & collecting parts thru the winter/spring

a new seat was first on the list



doh,, wrong one, lol



seat is comfy as hell

new plastics & led's in the ass end



all new cables / radiators / thermostat / hoses / risers

& started mocking up the fairing ( which totally transforms the stance of the bike )





i'll have to re-fit the dash because of the risers, but no biggie



this thing's gonna be badass, thanks Bern for hooking me up

That's some clean lookin bikes there NorCal Dog and your dash looks great. BTW on the bottom mounting point for the XR650R you can drop the rubber OEM grommets on the bottom and just use the nut / crush washer on the bottom of the mounting points to mount it up.

Later,

had a bit of time to mess with it today & i added a bit more aluminum to the mounts & got the dash mounted via 1/2" wire clamps mounted to the crossbar on the bars, worked out perfectly. now all i gotta do is fab another bracket for the top hole & it's a done deal. then on to wiring everything up.

didn't care for the mounting brackets that came with the led's, so i figured i'd go with plan B & mount the lights directly to the fairing

this is the mount that i came up with, quite simple, fully adjustable, & after it's 'glassed in & with the correct fasteners it'll be bulletproof

Yeah Norcal Dog, you are onto something, that looks sharp. Especially since you can adjust the light angle precisely using the nuts/bolts and lock them + plus you just got yourself a bigger heatsink for the led's. Just add one of the dimmers that are floating around and you are set.

Anyone in the audience - I do add flange bolts embedded into the fairing if you want now and that is what I run on my rig to support my lights.

Good sanding down the glass to make the new glass bond. I love the smell of resin - it makes me think of working on my surfboard, the waves, surfwax, the beach, bikini's - LOL!

Some pics of my ADV friend Kajj from Sweden running the Stealth on his ADVersys. It was a fun collaboration - he gave me precise measurements and I cut the holes for the lights 5000 miles away. He got this mounted up fast.

Just need some paint on it and he is set; I dont think he can decide between blue or black.

and mounted

the led's are currently just stuck in the holes, but after it's up & rolling again there's tons of adjustability for aiming the beam

( now waiting on a TM40 coming in from the power barn )

Hi. Yes it turned out great.

Yea I know, I need to paint it I just can not decide how I want it to look

Maybe I`ll try white in a few weeks, but for now all I want to do is ride
