Instructions? Oh, you mean that sheaf of paper with all the photos that came with the kit. No, I just set that aside and waded in. Clockwise and anti-clockwise - check.

Thanks!

Well, I think there is no doubt that you can claim to have the most unique bike with a BC fairing on it !!

Looks awsome

Awesome Customer Service!

Just wanted to share an experience I had dealing with Ian.

I ordered a Lynx fairing for my DRZ400SM and took a couple of nights to install it 6 months after I ordered it as a Christmas present to myself. The fit and finish was great, but I had an issue in mounting it - which was likely a result of my own inabilities as a handy man as anything to do with the product.

Anyways, Ian responded to the problem quickly and went out of his way to make sure I had what I needed to finish the installation properly.

Just wanted to call out great customer service when I see it. And you won't be disappointed with the product either.

Africa Twin?

Checked out the Lynx fairing at the UK Horizons Unlimited meeting just gone and was very impressed. I'm wondering if anyone has tried fitting one to an Africa Twin, or similar bike with a full fairing?

My bike got written off recently, all the plastics and lights were trashed, and I'm currently rebuilding it in a stripped down form. I've looked at rallye type fairings like the ones from Boano, which look cool, but I'm not building a rallye bike and like the idea of something a bit smaller.

Cheers

We manage to get the Lynx to fit most bikes. However, in order to advise which Lynx model would suit best, we need to see some pics of the top and bottom triple clamps from the front (preferably with everything stripped off) and go from there.

Email me @ britanniacomposites@shaw.ca if you want to look into it further.

Cheers Ian

Yes, we have done quite a few of the new XR650L Lynx in 'Honda Red', but it's not listed yet on the site. If you wanted one in Red, it's no problem. No pics of one fitted yet though.

the screen is an old screens for bikes screen that i used. it kicks up at the top a little and just seems to suit my needs a little better. the grill has two cap screws with flange nuts on the inside of the fairing. both are along the centreline of the grill with one at the bottom and the other in behind the grill near the top. you can just see it in one of the photos.

HID Re-Wire

Has anybody re-wired their HID to remove the relays?

I'e been having some problems with my High Beam Flickering at high revs, and the low beam being very flakey. I've traced it back to the relays acting up, and on my bike (TE 610) It's REALLY tight fitting in there.

So I'm thinking about ripping most of it out and re-wiring the whole thing. I've seen some pro-con arguments on car HID sites, but was just wondering if anyone's actually done it and what the result was on a bike?
