Jim:

a few things from your pictures:
  • you will want to shim the upper headlight screws to aim the lamp a to point further up the road.
  • you can also adjust the fairing by trimming the top off the side wings at a angle so the front mask sweeps back father
  • you can also trim the back of the sub-frame to help with the angle of the front mask.
you see what I'm talking about when you ride at nite..

bike is looking good.

kenaroo, you might not remember me, I am the guy that has been looking for fairing options for the big pig and we spoke a little bit on here.

I havent had the time to get anything going. Though I have had time to think about it and man what a challenge, I have a basic idea of what im going to do but its going to take alot of refinement. Ill keep you updated as things progress.

Question on the fairing.
Do high rise handlebars hit the fairing / windshield at full steering lock?

Plenty of clearance. I have high CR bend fatty bars with Acerbis handguards and there's at least an inch gap to the fairing.

hi Ken, I have a question, why you change the twin hellas lights for the ktm 990adv euro model headlight?

I have a klr650 and I was thinking on put a pair of 90mm hella modular lights, they are good? I need to instal relays or stuff like that?

thanks!

My Dakar piggie!

Hey guys,

Just finished up with the "Dakar" conversion of my BRP. So a little review. I must say that I really like Kens fairing and it looks great on the bike. I went with the scotts mount version and did a few changes to the mount so it would adapt to my bike. I also sprayed the back of the fairing with a rough matt black paint which looks very nice. The frame for the fairing is very solid and Ken has built it to alow for many variations in what you want to do with it. I ended up rerouting the steel braided brake line down over the front fender as the GPS and control box got in the way. Took it up to around 70mph today and there was a bit of buffeting on the top of my helmet but that is expected with me being 6'2. It did provide me with wind protection for my chest though! Overall I am very happy with the way it turned out and Kudos to Ken for doing this venture.

Some pics:

This is going to be FUN...

Well, I sent a check to Ken and ordered one of his Dakar fairing for my XR 650 R .

I've been wanting to build a 'Dakar' want'a be bike for a looooog time. I'm starting to acquire parts and will be assembling the bike in about 3 or so months.

If any of you guys have cockpit photos of how you have customized your Kenaroo fairing I'd love to see them.

Thank you Ken for making these fairings. I know you make VERY little money on these deals and this really started out as a labor of love.

Thanks again Ken.

Jim
