Anyone fitted one on an Xchallenge yet?














The question is if the fairing will fit in the frontfender and the lights will clear the cockpit unit

noisytoys screwed with this post 12-29-2012 at 03:26 PM Reason: extending

Looks like it could fit. On the fender...how wide is the well? What is the ctr-ctr distance on the pins? The fairings can be delivered blank so you can drill to match the pins. But check the well width. I measure the back of the fairing at 7.1 inches.

x3 So easy to judge.. there is so much time and effort put into these projects.. then some J-hole spends 2 seconds with a single word response of negativity.. Like the OP I always welcome these people to do better.. a few my try and most will fail.. others may be inspired.

My Critique? (not that you asked) I'd like to see someone come up with a graphics kit that would accent the lines and make it look better in the pictures.

I'd also think it needs to stand off the forks a little more to make more room for a cockpit/instruments (i.e gps and possibly a road book)

great job and I applaud your efforts..

HI there -
Put me down as a vote for a kit that fits the DR, plus an option to buy w/o lights. (I would like to put HID projectors in).

thanks!

Good comments, Mr Ken

And we know you put some skin into one of these projects so you know it is not a 5 minute job.

Graphics - John & I have talked about this at some length. I think both of us have had higher priorities. But if you have any visions, please share them.

Stand off - The design of the fairing brackets & fork brackets was designed for flexibility from day one. This fairing can be positioned as far forward (within reason) as you like. The best way to do this is to use (2) fork bracket kits which gives you 4 fork bracket mount points. You can now insert any width spacer bracket between the fairing brackets & the fork brackets. As an example, you could fab a piece of sheet metal 2 in wide x about 7 in high, insert (4) holes at .5 in edge margin to match the holes in the fairing bracket. Do 2 of these. Assemble this and wa - la, the fairing is now 1 inch further forward.

if this is unclear, let me know. I will provide pics.

Thanks for your thoughts.

Jim

Still wanting to get one of these for my LC4, trying to figure how to maintain my dash/speedo.
Also wondering if it would be a good choice as my bike sees a lot of low speed off road and trails.

(mostly because I ride slow)

"Maintain my dash / speedo"? Is you setup different than OEM? The fairing clears all OEM equipment. What is your setup?

That is "great" news! Have communicated with Harcus several times regarding this and sent pix of our light brackets... There are tons of these WR250-R's/X out there. I will hold off on purchasing until there is a WR specific unit. Looking for PnP!

Keep up the great work!

Nope, stock LC4. Just not sure if I can keep it in the same place.
Need to look at it closer I guess.

Awesome build sanjoh! And a decent price, I am coming up with excuses not to buy it. Might be easier if you post where you can buy and update your initial post.

I really dig the fairing. Do you also sell a plug in case of running 1 light only?

I'm getting one for my DR350. Really looking forward to it.

There were some pictures of flush mounted turn signals on some of the earlier pictures. Any info on where those can be obtained?
