Picked this up from the upholstery shop tonight.








It started as a Corbin Seat that came with the bike. I had the shop add about 1" on each side and 3/4" on top in the back half of the seat. Corbin uses a really hard material for the top as well. This thing is now wide where I want it and soft too boot.

Mini rally fairing

I want some added wind protection on my 690 and have been looking around for different options for fairings. But as my budget don't really allow for a nice Rally Raid kit with tanks and everything I started to look for a smaller, cheaper solution. I couldn't really find something I liked, so now I'm thinking of building my own in carbon fiber. I want the wind protection (and looks) of a big fairing, but still keep it simple without all those complex mounts for the navigation tower attaching to the frame. So my plan is to make a fairing that attaches at the fender and somewhere at the clamps for the handlebar.

I did a quick mock up in the computer to visualize my idea and would love some feedback! Why haven't I found any fairings like this? Is there some negative effects from having a high fairing like that turning with the handlebars? Is it just too ugly? Or what am I missing!?

Thanks! The collective knowledge of this forum is amazing! But even my 30 minute design look better than those IMHO :P

And now when I've started to think about building my own I think it could be a fun project.

We've installed 2" and just rotated the throttle cables to work.

I guess you didn't like the Lynx fairing?
