thoughts and concerns ??? feel free to p.m. me the answer if you wish as im not always in the vendors thread
The Lynx HAS to be mounted to the steering. There have been a few fitted to DR350's, but I can't recall exactly what we did to get it to fit. If you wanted to look into it further, it would be best to email us with a couple of photos of your triple clamps and speedo location so we could advise further.

I'm using the "stock" bulbs - and they ROCK! HID is on the list, but more to reduce power requirements than because I feel a need for more light. I've got some concerns on a HID high beam - because of the startup time. Rather, they come on - but have to warm up to their full output. Only a problem if you need to "flash" someone/something.

Well, it's almost a year since I fitted the generic Lynx to my TE450, this Friday, I got my 2nd damage, my first damage was shattering the stock clear screen. This damage was from a rock off the spinning rear wheel of a Husaberg FE 570, with new tires! Man, I'm lucky I still have a my high beam. Guess I'll learn some fiberglass repair....

Ian, the fairing has been great, workmanship and durability are superb, almost 6,000 miles on it now.






After dismounting the Lynx, I found that one of the three mounting tabs had been broken by the rock, THROUGH the fiberglas, wow, can't believe the high beam survived.

Two part epoxy will work in there, mines been like that for 40,000+kms. I crashed into an angled tree, busted the light mount like you, cracked the fairing between the lights, and broke of a turn signal. lol

I did a Jake-fix on it (fast and ugly), looks OK, not great, close enough to paint black over and hit the road, I'd rather ride than spend too much time on cometics, 65F here, had to get out there....

Yes, there have been several 625 Lynx's and they suit the bike very well.

Email us at britanniacomposites@shaw.ca and I'll send you some pics and more details.

Sorry, the new Mirage 3 is for the 1200's and won't fit the 1150

We are out of stock as of today, but will have more by the middle of the week, so there will be no problem getting one to you by the beginning of Feb, unless you want a colourmatched one, in which case it might be a bit tight.
