Excellent Video Paul !!

The unit seems very well thought, can't wait to test mine

I hope these units will soon be replaced by these boys . Without a servo assist at the moment

Shouldn't be long, tracking says it just cleared customs, let me know when you get it too, I can't wait.

If they tore it open I'll bet they didn't get everything back in the same box.

I'm considering this one for my exc530, it's seems very light and compact.
Like the HDB frame mounted kit. Time will tell what I'll choose. :-)

looks like it requires drilling the headstock, am I right?

Been mounting the Highway Dirt Bikes rally nav tower this weekend and thought I should share....













I'm really liking the simplicity of the mount. It offers everything the other full fairing kits do but with a lighter weight and an ease of maintenance. The HDPE is bomb proof, Its amazing how light and tough it is. The fairing is enough protection for the nav gear but not a huge sail. The dual Squadrons are a ton of light, can't imagine needing more on a rally bike. I'll throw the 690 on the ice one more time before I start prepping for Sandblast rally on March 2nd. Nice work Paul!

Glad you got the erector set together without any instructions.

Looks good. Can't wait to here how it does.

Fortunately for me, I never read them so it worked out well:lol It was very intuitive honestly, once I started with the steering stem block, it all just fell into place. The thing is really rugged, I'm amazed at how tough the HDPE is. I almost want to throw it on the ground to test it

Wait till I have some time to make the next version before you do the real destructive testing.

It's going to get rally tested in two weeks at the Sandblast rally, at speeds over 100

Can anyone tell me why I would want the f2r 750 instead of the "new' f2r 730? It's $110 more but I can't really tell what the difference is.

Thanks!

It has redundant o-rings for all drive components as well as the cover latch. It also holds 48mm diameter rolls instead of 46mm.

No doubt, since the 730 was revised in November 2012, the differences are fewer.
