The Xtankteam's XChallenge rallystyle fairing kit

Takes a bit of time to get to the moment that you're satisfied yourself, but in the end............

It's officially on the market

I like it !
Looks like you have modified the seat height so nearly anyone can touch !

Cheers Callum,

The pic is courtesy of my friend Mr. clearandlock of this fraternity. After the build of the bike he took it to Morocco for a testride and supplied plenty of great footage

Hmm very interested in your fairing. How adaptable is it? This wouldn't be going on a BMW but no sense spending weeks trying to make a nicer fairing. I wonder if your mount would work to adapt to my Ninja project? I have FX projectors currently as well as some Hellas.

I really enjoyed your work with Walter and always checked to see when/if you would release these.

Could work. How adaptable? Well the fairings form is the fairings form

About the mount: what's the rake of your bike and what's the forklegs's centre distance?

Else e-mail me. We could look into it

Fork rake is about 27 degrees, fork centerline distance (you're asking how far apart are the fork tube centerlines correct?) is about 190mm as close as I can measure with a tape measure. They are KTM RFS fork legs and a KTM style triple clamp.

I understand the fairing form is set, I can modify the lower fairing parts to join my bike. I'm just wondering if the fairing support is going to be close enough to modify or would I end up hacking apart your nice handiwork to fit an obviously different bike?

I have a waterjet shop locally and can weld aluminum but I also recognize the work and engineering you put into yours and I think it would be much easier to use yours assuming no dramatic differences. Hard to guess from the distances apart we are. It would end being an expensive paperweight (although nice looking) if I couldn't use it and had to start from scratch.

Wouldn't work as a paperweight, not heavy enough

rake's no problem, the 190 (KTM) mms are, for steering angle with my full bracket
You've got mail back
