Yes, we now have smaller ballasts that fit much better to the back of the dashboards. They weigh in at 10oz.

Yep, and it would ship by the end of the week.

Anyone tried one yet on an LC4E?

Has anyone tried one of these on an LC4E yet? I'm tempted to pull the trigger and clean up the front of mine a bit for longer DS rides. If anyone has done one yet, please post some pics if you have em.

Nobody as yet fitted one to an LC4 ( to my knowledge). However, there is one on a 950 Enduro and that didn't seem to be a problem. The only drilling that is required, is a single threaded hole ( M6 or 1/4") in the centre of the front face of your bottom triple clamp. This is where the bottom of the fairing attaches. You also have to consider whether you have enough electrical out put for the Halogens. The safest way is to have the low beam as an HID (this remains 'on' all the time and only draws 35w), then the bike will have no problem handling the extra 65w when you have High on as well.

Taking it on and off would be a real pain in the ........ The fairing comes off easy enough, but the dash part is clamped between the top triple and the handlebar risers, so you would have to take the handlebars off every time. The dash also holds the Relays and HID ballast (if you have HID's), so all that would have to be unplugged as well.

I don't want to put you off, but that's the reality of it.

I can't wait to get mine. I'm anticipating it's going to transform my TE610 into an ideal tool for DS touring here in the Rockies. And in light of how much it costs to get a European rally kit to fair the bike from roadspray and improve the lighting, the Britannia Composites rig is a bargain.

Thanks for the honest reply. At the moment its 6 connectors and three or four bolts and I'm lightless and ready to rock/crash. Might look into a better bulb and a dakar windshield for it.

Maybe sometime when I get this whole "jumping and railing around stuff" thing out of my system. I do really like the look of it!

I like the modified version on the G650X. I really want to keep the factory front fender. We will talk on dualsportbc.com.

There are already two that have gone out on the 690 , but I don't have any pics yet. There are also some going out for the 950 enduro.

Cheers Ian

xrr

If you have the stock triple on a xr650r I don't believe it will work. The handlebar mounts are one piece with the triple clamp. Most bike have two bolts here which is where the lynx fairing attaches (correct me if I am wrong Ian). I was hoping to put one on my xrr. You could get a new top triple, etc. Some nice ones out there with stabalizers built in then the lynx fairing would work but the cost just a got a bit too much for my wallet.

On a side note I had one of Brittanias fairings on a klr I used to have and I would give it two thumbs up, keep up the good work Ian, wish more folks had the same ethics and customer support that you have (how many companies follow these threads and jump in with answers to customers concerns).

My two cents for what its worth.

I suppose you want one cheap now !!

Actually there is another solution to the dash/triple clamp issue. A guy with a DRZ (which has the same problem) has simply made up an aluminum bracket that attaches to the face of the top triple and then rivets to the underside of the dash. The spare bit of ABS dash that would have gone under the risers is just cut off.
Apparently, he thinks it was quicker to make uo the bracket out of 1/8th than taking the risers off anyway !!

Cheers Ian
