Most of the changes to the Lynx are small and really constitute improvements to any 'niggles' we have had over the past few years. The existing molds have pretty much done there time now, so the Lynx gets an updated 'look' as well.

I can't remember if I mentioned it before, but a preliminary look at the GS lead me to think that the GS model will probably involve the removal of the complete OEM unit including the instruments, so it will be stripped back to the forks and triples and we'll go from there.
Any further teasers on the new lynx? I want one for my 690 enduro......
When do you think they will be available?

I was just about to 'launch' into detail on the new Lynx and post up a couple of photos BUT I don't seem to be able to upload the photos. Being over 50 is why I don't know how to solve this, but in the meantime just email me britanniacomposites@shaw.ca and I'll get the photos off to you. The new one will start going out in about 2 weeks.

Cheers Ian

Having got the new Lynx and Mirage 3 done, I'm searching for a 'donor' GS locally to get going on that version of the Lynx.

Fresh pics of the newest Lynx design for folks to oogle...

Love the deeper recess for the lights, and the new lense protector.

I'll suggest we all ignore the "forks" here... or maybe Ian is working on some fancy upgrade kit for them he isn't telling us about... ;)

Looks sharp! Seems the transparent screen mounting is the same...any black/full-tint option with a reverse lip at the very top? That would look/work sharp...

My Lynx arrive for my 690, 31 days after Ian sending it out, all down to bloody UK customs and ParcelForce having too much work on apparently!

This was meant to be my xmas project! Anyway rant over, I had a day off yesterday and set to fitting the Lynx, as well as my Garmin Montana, heated grips, USB charger, and relocation of my fuel mapping switch all onto the new dash. I opted for the HID dip beam and halogen high beam.

Here's the pics:
This is a comparison of the OEM light unit:








Dip Beam


Main Beam


MESSAGE TO IAN AT BRITANNIA: I NEED ONE OF THOSE NEW PROTECTORS ASAP!!


Will it fit mine and if so, when will it be ready to buy??

Cheers

2- Doesn't the brake cable bumps into the Montana when riding and the fork compresses?

3- for the 12v plug - wouldn't the male connector for your device interfere with the brake cable?

Thank you

So, Is the white 'theme' some sort of premonition of the new UK landscape ? Looks great !
I suspect your question about the new stone guard is going to be the first of many and I'm afraid the initial answer is 'no', the new fairing and guard have been designed together. However, I'm going to look into a way of creating a kit to make it fit the existing Lynx. Watch this space !

Seeing the power socket reminds me of another improvement in the works. Shortly, all Lynx wiring harnesses will come with 2 fused 'pigtails' that can be used for powering accessories and I will be supplying the power sockets as well. This means that accessory installation will be largely plug 'n play which will help the 'electrically challenged' guys out there !

Yes to February, but the fairings are likely to be ready to go before the new harnesses are here. So, people who are getting the power sockets will get the new wiring harness and may have to wait until the end of feb, whereas those who aren't, will be getting the fairings in the next couple of weeks.
