DR650 Lynx

Here’s the layout I did for my DR650 with Lynx HID. With just a few rides under the belt, I'm very happy. With all of my kilometres done on country roads, the HID is chalk & cheese compared to the standard DR650 head light. That alone, for me, is worth the cost of the unit.
From left to right; Grip heater switch, Trail Tech Vapor and original neutral, indicator & high beam status indicators.

That's a really neat instal . It's not easy getting all that stuff in behind the dash and you've left yourself plenty of room for a GPS if required,

I just got mine in the post on the weekend and love it! The install was pretty easy. I didn't have a hacksaw to cut the headlight frame down, so i just bent it back with a crowbar. It took some time because that also bent the dash support holes back too, but I eventually found a compromising spot. The twin lights look so cool and are incredibly bright compared to the rubbish stock bulb. I also love the rally style tall dash. My project over the next few days is to paint the bike. (I seem to try something new every year) I can't wait to take her for a spin in the new year!

The KLR fairings are still being made, but will discontinue before the spring. All backup parts will still be available beyond that.

I got one of these fairings for my KLR 650 a few months ago. It has transformed the bike completely.
Installation was reasonably easy and the supplied wiring harness made the wiring very easy.
I have ridden the bike down to central America and have never enjoyed riding the bike as much as I have since the installation of this fairing.
Everybody I meet is admiring the bike, not a common thing for a KLR :)

Sorry, I need to clarify things and we are DEFINITELY still making fairings !!

The long running XST ( with the beak) is changing to 'special order' status and will discontinue as an 'off the shelf' item. The reason for this is that it continues to cause excessive stress to the KLR's weak headlight frame and so we will only be offering it where someone is doing a major re-build and making up their own headlight frame and dash and replacing the OEM instruments etc. We are doing such a build for a guy in the Netherlands who is fitting one to a KLX 650 ( major project !)

The Phoenix will continue and frankly is both better and cheaper to fit straight onto the standard A model. So the KLR is certainly not forgotten !

Other news is that we have a new Mirage 3 fairing nearly ready for the 1200 GS BMW's, which resembles the Mirage 2 for the 650/800, but with some new improvements including a carbon finish dashboard. Should be available in Feb.

Many thans to everybody for their ongoing support and interest and wishing you all a very happy Xmas and successful New Year !

Cheers

Ian

Yes, I've thought about a 're-worked' Lynx for the single, but wanted to inspect the new 'Dakar' ( or whatever they call it) from BMW to see if there is enough commonality in forks/triple clamps and front fender to design one to fit both the older and newer models.

It's next on the list once the Mirage 3 is up and running,

The Lynx works well:



But - you either need to swap your upper tripletree to one with bolt-in risers, or make an adapter/mount as I did:
