Looks great Ian!

FWIW I never had a problem with the 20mil vinyl protectors on mine way back when but as you say the grill looks the part and will work better for bigger rocks.

Hey Ian,

Ian, many thanks for the bits you sent. The ballast did the trick and the stone guard looks the dogs bollocks! Cheers

Ian,
Are you guys going to do one for the T800? Buddy has one on his f800 and I am really impressed with the quality.

Awesome 2nd edition Lynx

I took about 2 hours Saturday and installed Debbie's new Lynx on her 2010 KTM 690R. I have a 1st generation Lynx on my 2010 690R and have been very happy with it for over 13000 miles now. I really like the new and very improved lower mounting point on the new design. She opted for HID for both low and high beams. WOW! I thought that I put out a wall of light with the HID low and halogen high.
Once again I have to say the Ian puts out a great product with excellent support (even on Saturday afternoons!)
Here's a few photos of mounting and mounted.

Many thanks for the kind words and it's great to see the newer and older model side by side like that

BTW Anyone looking at the photo of the back of the dash here might like to know that I've changed the mounting point of the HID Ballasts from the back of the dash to inside the chin of the fairing. This was always the intention with the bigger chin area, but couldn't do this on Debbie's, because I hadn't received the new wiring harnesses that have longer wires to reach down into the base of the fairing. The benefit is that there is more room on the back of the dash for other stuff and mounting right down at the bottom of the fairing places the weight lower down and nearer the new strong bracket that Tom has referred to. Less shaking on the rough stuff and less strain on the dash.

'The relentless pursuit of perfection' ( Yeah, right !)

No problem. How did you fit the rock guard to the older model ?

Me and 50 others would like to know !

Ian

BTW Hearing phrases like "Dogs Bollocks' really makes me homesick for Blighty ! Tried explaining it to the Canucks, but just got a blank look !

I reckon we could sort you out by photos. You would need to change the front fender though. The 630 one looks very similar and that fits OK with the new Lynx.

As far as I'm aware, there still isn't one in a dealership here in Vancouver. There's only 2.5 million people live here so I guess the Husky dealer doesn't think it's worth getting them in !! Dig

Is the new mask injection molded or fiberglass?

Still glass/kevlar composite. Injection molded unit would be much too 'floppy' for the design to work.

How durable is the glass/kevlar mask to cracking under flex or vibration?

Vibration isn't an issue and flex is fine up to a point. There seem to have been very few breakages these past 5 years, and this is in part because a fairing of this size generally doesn't get hit badly unless the bike flips upside down. So, you would probably need a direct hit against a rock ( and pretty hard at that) to break it.
