Go with your first instinct!

Awesome day Saturday. We actually ended up finding some snow that same day.

Fairings worked great on the highway there and home and absolutely no trouble whatsoever offroad. Thanks for all your help!

Looking to do the same sort of set up on my KLR. This is the "Stealth" version right and you got the indicator dashboard for it as well?

Anymore details on this install?

PS feel free to PM me so we don't highjack the thread.

PPS: LOVE my fairing, thanks Ian!

Another Yamaha WR250R Lynx Fairing Install

I replaced my headlight with a britannia composites lynx fairing with hella lights yesterday. I also mounted the gps to the dash (garmin montana with rugged power mount). the whole process which included new indicators (LED DRC 602) took about 4 hours. I am please with the end result. I haven't ridden it yet but will repost once I have. I am still waiting for an eastern beaver switched circuit to complete the power connection for the gps (and heated grips later) but all the wires have been run.

bit of a rats nest of wires, but it all gets hidden. I certainly kept more that I needed but I wanted to be safe, maybe I'll clean it up later. i changed the flashers to DRC 602 LED lights. The fairing would get in the way of the original. the fairing could be trimmed but after installing the DRC edge tail kit I wanted to clean up the front and the LED's are brighter in my opinion. the fairing kit comes with brackets to move new flashers a bit lower so they don't get in the way. The only problem I found was the flashers only have a red and black wire while the stock had three (blue, black and brown/green). The stock lights were running lights (blue wire) and flashers (green/brown wire). The new flashers could only be setup as running OR flashers. I opted for flasher of course but it would have been nice to do both ... any solutions for this?



I moved the stock display and gps onto the dash. the stock bracket for the display has to be cut away from the frame because it is welded to the front end. It could be spot welded later if need be. Make sure you file the sharp edges after you cut it so no wires get cut. there is a hole for the key because the ignition would be really hard to move. i don't like the look of this but what can you do. at first i thought the hole was way to big (precut at factory), but it is in the perfect spot and size in order to get your fingers in to turn the key. If the hole wasn't predrilled i would have considered moving the ignition. there was just enough room for the garmin mount. I had contemplated getting a touratech locking mount but it is pretty big and slides up to release the unit which would not work with the dash space. the garmin rugged mount has the release on the side and the top only lifts a quarter inch. This approach is not secure but that's the concession I had to make.



here the front fairing is on. It doesn't come in yamaha blue. i was going go with black but i think the white with blue decal looks pretty sweet. I guess i just need an ADV decal now. the two hella headlamps have protective rubber pads on them which seem pretty good in case a stone hits them.



here all the wiring is working. here you can see the windshield on the highest position. I haven't had it on the road yet but I think the protection will be significant. Off road with the windshield down should be ok. Your view is obstructed a bit but not when standing.





final result

You are gonna love it. It has been one of my favorite mods on my WR250X. Wait till you take it for a ride at night.
I hope you took the time to adjust the lights... you for sure want to do that before riding when you need them. they are BRIGHT...

I went for a 100km ride tonight and the whole setup is awesome. The lights are bright, HID would have been incredible! I didn't adjust them but no oncoming traffic complained so they are probably ok. the fairing provides more wind protection that I expected.

Lynx

Very pleased with product, and the whole process of ordering, shipping, and recieving. Great communication from Brittania!

Already raved about the Lynx in "Thumpers", anyone looking for lights, windscreen, and fairing I find that this fits the bill! Price is appropriate, quality and looks are A+, install process was good and man, did I mention the lighting?

HID Low beam baby, alllll the way

Good Stuff Ian, a pleasure doing business with you!

You managed to steal a KLR for roughly 600 bucks Canadian?

Build quality, lighting capability, and superior wind protection (over stock) top me exceeds the price for this kit.
(Just don't tell the folks at Brittania that!)

I have a hard time parting with my bucks also, having 4 kids makes it tougher. But the way I look at it, now I can get home faster at night (and safer) and be home earlier! Or...stay out later

Each passing day, this was money well spent for me. Good stuff!

Hi Ian, I had one of the Lynx fairings on my KTM625SXC

Awesome bike and the fairing was fantastic.

The only problem was that it was way too tall for me. I now have a 2006 Honda XR250L that I'd like to put a Lynx on as well. Does the XR650L Lynx fairing fit the XR250L? Has anybody tried it? The bikes share a fair bit in common.



Cheers.

I don't think we'd have any problems putting a Lynx kit together for that bike. We don't have the model up here, so I can't go look, but just send me some photos of the bottom and top triple clamp areas and we can go from there.

Cheers Ian

PS that 625 looks sooooo cool !!
