I second the stacked light fairing for my new 690!

I'll third the stack light combo!

And if I could humbly throw in another request...

I'd love to have some way to quickly raise/lower the headlight beam. Just tonight I gave a short ride in the city to a friend and my pretty well adjusted auxiliary lights were all of a sudden 50' up in the trees. To have a quick nob you could reach while sitting on the bike that had a range of adjustment from rider and no luggage to rider+Passenger+luggage would be awesome!

FWIW I wouldn't want a squadron. At this point the Hella Bi Xenon's are far, far superior. JW speakers probably has the best (albeit insanely expensive) LED's out there now. Price to performance ratio vs HID projectors they are not really in the same league - I think the guys that buy them with understanding do so kind of like guys buying Prius' 10 years ago... it was for the sake of supporting developing products.
All that to say if you make the stacked light fairing I'm hoping we could still use the vastly superior HID projectors and wouldn't HAVE to upgrade to the LED squadron's!

Mine came in yesterday.

Here it is installed:



There was some rotary tool action involved with making the dash touch only at the mounting points (I read that if you don't do this, it will buzz), and it took awhile to align the lights.

The light output is impressive, and an unexpected feature: the current Lynx has a delay relay, so you can start the bike before the HID fires up (which should make the ballast last longer).

The only bug I'm still working out is that the Lexan guard buzzes something fierce on the 690. I'm thinking spacers to keep it from contacting the fairing (and slightly longer screws) will cure that.

Overall, a very impressive product, and I'm happy to have it.

2nd Generation Lynx

After almost 3 years, I finally decided I was tired of the lower mounting of the 1st generation Lynx. After a brief exchange with Ian I ended up with a 2nd gen Lynx and can't be happier! Much better mounting system. Awesome product!!

The wife and I put on our supermoto wheels and went for a 500 mile, 2 day ride this past weekend.
