Any idea when this fairing will be ready for sale to the public? I have one of the fastest grey 800's and could use a new fairing...
Thank you, and +1.

I just ordered one of these. My Cee Bailey took a rock last weekend and split down the middle.
While not as tall or multi-funtional as the TT D III, the angle is adjustable.
We'll see.
I could swear the part was available when I ordered it. Now the page is saying 2-3 weeks. Maybe I got the last one?

Wunderlich screen

It *looks* like a cockpit cover. I had one on my R12GS, and I loved it! All it covers is the instrument cluster, but it gives the rider plenty of "clean" air! I'm 6'3", and had difficulty even with the taller after-market screens.

On my F800, I've installed the new, similar windscreens made by Aeroflow. *Not* the barn door Aeroflow like I have on my 1150GS, but a smaller tinted windscreen that I like a lot.

Well I got an email from Ian a few days ago saying there's light at the end of the tunnel... these fairings should be available for purchase very soon.

For you local (Vancouver BC) guys, he says Pacific Yamaha BMW will be carrying them. Good reason to go and shoot the shit with Sheldon. nice...

Maybe we'll see a few pictures of the final product up here soon?

5'2" rider on a lowered F650GS, i'd be interested to know the height of the screen at it's lowest position to determine if i will be looking over it. can a custom, shorter screen be made so i can have some up & down adjustment ?

We've just done one for a lowered 650 and a rider of similar stature and they find that they really don't need to raise the screen at all.

We could quite easily do a modified fairing height for you that is lower, but you would lose the GPS perch.

Here is a photo of the lowered one and you might get an idea of how high the fairing is. For reference the sloping front of fairing itself is 12" coming up from the front of the headlights.

Hope this helps

Ian

Justthought i'd post my first impression-- looks like it stands up much straighter than the 20" c baily i had,also seems to sit a bit farther away from rider. Barkbusters clear, yay, it is quieter than the c baily seems like it is going to be a good screen, easily adj. and great service from ian called took a week to get cause of the mail but no problems

A better wind/cockpit solution is next on my list of upgrades and I would love to go with someone who has a great product and is mostly local, which would be Ian in both cases. Does anyone have pictures of their Brittania cockpit set-ups on a 650 or 800 in terms of GPS, switches, etc?

I am also curious about durability since I seem to be like a tiny motorized Weeble Wobble sometimes........

I am finally going to mount my Garmin 478 on the Mirage 2 cockpit. I have it mounted on my bars but it's time to make the move. I have the TT bracket and some cabling and BR2 electrical connectors and hope I can bring it all together like I envision. I will only have 1 switch and the will be Burns ABS on/off switch. My extra light switches are on the handlebar where I like them.

I hate doing electric but this - I think I can pull off. I have a 6 pack of Mikes so I am good to go. After 3 and it's not helping, I'll put the bike in a trailer and take it over to Harry at Basin Motorcycle Works in Mancos.
