Creating a XR650L Rally Fairing

Hi All,

So I am in the process of creating a rally fairing for my XRL and figured I would put a thread up here.

I really love the XR but hate the lack of wind protection. I don't like the look of any of the aftermarket windshields and I want the space to put a custom dash on.

I like the rally raid fairing but was looking for something with a skinnier profile and that gave a little more dash room....

So here it goes.

Started out with a template made of paper.







Plenty of space to add a dashboard

Then I made a template out of foam-core





Next I will make a fairing out of acrylic by cutting out the pieces and gluing them together. Then I will do ride tests to see if I like the shape and wind protection. After that I will get a plug made or make one for injection molding....maybe.

What do you think?

Buy a Lynx fairing with better lighting, an adjustable windscreen, and call it good. You'll spend far less time and be much happier over your results.

Yeah I have looked at them but I like making my own farkels and I am not about to spend over $500 on a fairing. I am also planning on doing something with the lighting on my bike just not sure yet. Probably and LED bulb
