Britannica Composites "Lynx"

Seems it would be good on road.. but I have heard they are brittle and break in a crash.

It's a Lynx made by Britannia Composites.

I have a HID low beam and Halogen high beam in my first generation lynx. What an amazing difference.
My wife has a HID for both low and high beam on her second generation Lynx. What an even more amazing difference!

I crashed pretty hard outside of Green River, Ut and only cracked a small area at the top of the windscreen slot. My 690 has been used more off pavement than on and that was the only time I've had any issues.

Ian, at Britannia Composites repaired the Lynx for the cost of shipping. He has provided excellent customer service from day 1. I liked the Lynx so much I got one for my wife's 690.

Hows the wind protection on that Lynx?

Is the screen fairly sturdy lifted all the way up at interstate speeds?

Thanks for the input.

For those of you looking for a new/different fairing, the HDB Rallye Lite Kit and Dual Sport fairing looks interesting.

I've seldom ridden with the screen all the way up. It seems to give me the best wind protection about 2" from the top. I'm 6' tall and wear an ARAI XD4 with the beak on. With SuMo wheels I've ridden close to triple digits for short distances and the Lynx works well. It doesn't keep all the wind off but definitely makes a difference.

Quick questions:
  • Which motard wheelsets did you go with?
  • Any upgrades to the front brake?
  • R&G axle sliders?

I have yet to see a Basel kit on any bike other than the promotional photos. I wish they would take more/better photos of the kit in detail to show us why it costs as much as it does.
