Any chance of any photos of the fairing kit installed on a 690 Enduro? Have a '11 690R I'm contemplating adding a fairing of sorts
Thanks!

We're about there with those, just need to mount it up on a WR250R to make sure.

Hi Paul,

Any joy yet on something that will work with an aftermarket DRZ400E top triple clamp?

Cheers,

Adrian

I used the HDB kit early on in the Year at an event called the Condo 750 and was extremely happy with the set up and managed to convince my riding buddy to use this set up for his new bike he was building for Safari.

This is my 3rd bike I have set up fro Safari over the last 3 years and the HDB set up is my favorite. First bike the nav gear was mounted to a handlebar cross brace and I found I had to sit down to read the roadbook. Second bike was frame mounted and was very far forward which gave the bike a pendulum like feel over certain terrain.

I like the HDB because I can read the roadbook standing up as it's position is great and also no pendulum like affect.

The safari is a 7 day 3500km off road race that had us in sand, hard pack and lots of f#ckin rocks. The HDB kit showed no signs of wear and did it's job perfectly.

If your after a light compact set up that is race proven under extreme conditions then this the 1 to get.

Thanks Paul you offer a great product with awesome service to back it up.:c lap:c lap

P.S. The handguards are also bloody good!

Lucas - Is that a RR Roadbook mount mounted on top of the 12 mm bar of the HDB set-up ? How does the whole thing fit. I have the exact plate including the side gps mount on my 690. So I can just take the whole plate off and fit it on my Husaberg with the HDB set-up.

Another one here too - 690 Enduro R - would be perfect for my needs!

Hi Athlon, sorry was out of town last week to deal with family business, I'm still working on clearing all the emails I missed while I was gone, but yes we are still around and I'll get you and anyone else I've missed taken care of today.
Thanks, Paul

This is probably a dumb question, but what is the real world difference in steering weight and rideability of the rally-lite style system of mounting road book, ICO etc. to the bars vs fixed steerer-head mount? Almost all the Dakar bikes seem to have a fairing/fixed mount, but your system looks much simpler & cheaper for the occasional part-time warrior...

On the Dakar and official FIM rallys you have to carry a lot more gear, e.g. IRITRACK, Sentinel, Balise, so you need more space and it weighs more.

For all other rallys you will just carry a roadbook reader, tripmaster, GPS and if you want a Cap repeater (RNS is awesome!). For that stuff the HDB setup is sufficient, simpler and stronger.

I used it in the Tuareg Rally last year and was very happy, didn't feel that the weight on the bars was a problem at all. And it survived my many many crashes - - including some front endos going down steep dunes - without problems (the two small brackets that hold the plastic fairing on got tweaked, but I bent them back), which would surely not have been the case with a full fairing setup and frame mounted nav tower.

Great value for the money, I can highly recommend it!
