Ok, I have everything finished and ready for paint. The install was actually very easy. Everything lined up perfectly. I had to trim just a tiny bit on the stock plastic radiator shrouds but I believe this is due to me using the AT tank and fairing.

Here is the business end, my 376c with Touratech mount and my AceWell computer in perfect line of sight.



All accessories are run through a Fuzeblock http://fuzeblocks.com/ seen on the right.



Toggle switch with waterproof boot and LED for AutoComm.



Side stand light.



Standard and BMW power outlets.



Everything mounts on an aluminum bracket that mounts to the stock holes on the steering head.





Here you can see the V notches that I had to cut out of the radiator shrouds.



Dual H4 headlights.





Fairing mounts easily using 2 Zeus fasteners on either side of the tank, one phillips screw that attaches the fairing to the insurment panel on each side and one phillips screw just above the headlights.







And the cockpit view...

THANKS!!!

One thing I've learned from racing offroad all these years is, you can go much faster if you spend your money on upgrading the suspension not the engine.

Awesome build so far Quick question about the GPS mount. How did you mount the TT mount to the bike? Got any pics of that? Couldnt really tell from the cockpit photos.

That is an awesome job. Anyone who has ever wired anything can appreciate it for sure. You did do a great job.

How was drilling through the carbon/kevlar hybrid? I have drilled through straight CF before...fabric set in resin...and it was not that easy. Then again, if it was easy to drill through....it would not be so dang strong.

Forgive if I am being naive about those style bikes, but the height, and lack of visibility through, for this fairing set up..I guess is normal? Not an issue since I assume you stand most of the time while riding this style bike? Or, is the height deceiving in the pics?
