Sorry for the delay - just came back from the Rocky Mountain Adventure Rally in Silverton CO - OMG that place is heaven for riding - people reading this YOU NEED TO ATTEND NEXT YEAR. Besides the riding we gave away
$10 000 worth of freebie prizes anything from $1000 Klim Jackets, iPads to keychains!
Later - B
Thanks man! I'll definitely hit you up soon.

Also, I've been meaning to get out west, but looks like I'll be stuck up here in NY for the rest of the year. Will def. have to make it a point to get out there next year. The rally sounds like a lot of fun (also the freebies )

Ride safe

Painted and cut to size. I love this thing.

Headlight is wrapped in "Super firm closed cell foam"


Dash area yet to have carbon plate installed.


Right side view.


Full Frontal View


Solid as a rock at free way speeds, and very noticeable difference over standard Dr650 headlight cover. Much improved! Great for long distance riding. I had to cut mine down about 3 inches in the front, and I'm very happy with it now.

Alex - Ok dude, I am going to say it myself that black looks badass and you have officially figured out the brackets for the DR650!

Minor resemblance:




If you need a flangebolt for the top of the carbon fiber dash connection point let me know or HDepot have some wood flange bolts that could double since it does not need much up there. Just put a minor bend in the middle of the flat area and it goes right in the "fold" on the inside. Once you put the dash on it will contain some of the sound being deflected up and transform your bike from a dirt bike to an Adventure bike.

On the carbon fiber dash - I was a bit concerned that the epoxy was not 100% set when I sent it off so let me know if it hardened up ok - carbon fiber epoxy can be a pita - fiberglass is cake compared to it.

Ride On!

Later,
Bern

Stealth II

I have been thinking about how I can make my Stealth fairing better. I considered customer and fellow ADV rider feedback and looked at the newer bike light designs (see below), DOT requirements etc. and came to the following conclusion:

What is working on Stealth I:
A bikini triple-mounted fairing does the job fine, even at high speed - who needs a full-bathing suit - (I should add pictures and you compare )
My "wind-splitting" stealth design works and it is sturdy as a result of my triangle concept
The fairing forward design is the way to go for safety and that cool rally bike look
My attachment method is sturdy and simple, the flange bolts are bullet-proof - I crashed twice HARD and I just straightened the aluminium
The dash area is awesome for electronics, it transforms a bike


What should I add to Stealth II:
Overall make the fairing a little bit shorter and more compact
Make it slightly lighter
Make the lip at the top longer so if someone wants to trim it down they still have the lip for wind deflection
OEM lighting is coming along + LED OEM bulb plug in replacements are now available - why go non-DOT and spend 100's $
Make a fairing that accomodate the new OEM lighting shapes (notice the V at the bottom of the lights below)
Make the bottom section a bit narrower to accomodate more oversize tanks
Provide a larger/ flatter, more flexible area (lower down) to accomodate the LARGE enduro lights and to easily surface mount non-OEM
Location perfect for a "NACA" like vent to reduce high-pressure build-up at the front of the fairing

I still like messing with this concept!!

The Starting Point:


New OEM Dual-Sport / Enduro Light Shapes - in no particular order

If you make something to fit a v-strom, you could make a killing. We (mostly) all hate the factory option.

I think there are many bikes that come out of the gates with a difficient fairing. I don't have the resources to provide alternatives to bike specific fairings. I enjoy this project and the challenge to make a universal fairing since I foremost do this for fun and fundraising.
