Not my bike, but it sure looks like a HDB (Highway Dirt Biker) clamp to me.

I had the idea come to mind of the sort of dash put into the 09' and up KLR's or the KTM adventures. something with options for power ports and equipment mounts (GPS and such)

On the XR650L, there are locating pins, so to get a super solid mount would I also bolt to the existing light mount? If so what is required to get the needed inner braces?

You would use the existing fork mount for the XRL. The main brackets are included with the fairing. An XRL install should take about 30 minutes with 20 of that figuring out how high/low and the angle you want to mount the fairing.

Hmmm
Wondering if you could 'glass a set of brackets onto the back of this for a GPS mount.
Or do you think it would crack the faring over time?

Should be very easy. The fairing is bulletproof(almost) if it had an outboard we would call it a boat should handle a shelf without an issue.

Thanks for the reply. It appears it would be a great addition to my XRL, except when I read that it comes over the top clamps about 8", I have a spitfire windscreen on there that gives me significantly more coverage, and has spoiled me to be honest. I may just look into setting up some additional lights from you instead. The product is beautiful, just a bit short for my purposes. Maybe I am looking something more similar to the KTM 990 adventure fairing.

Figured it would hold it, I knew it looked pretty sturdy.
And a GPS is pretty light.

Very interested, but very broke right now.

Get back to you after I sell the wife's bike

Bigger is not always better! The fairing was designed as a dualsport fairing, you can ride it in extreme stuff off road without worrying about it smacking you in the noggin, while providing significant wind protection on the road.

A trade would suit me, that would keep me from cleaning the carbs and charging the battery.

Her "I want a motorcycle" phase is over. Right up until I sell it, then she will want a dirt bike.

I see your point. I am gonna give one a try. I just can't deny the good looks and lighting capability. I just got home from a late night ride, struggling with lack of lighting thinking about 7200 lumens of light and how much it should help.

So I met Sanjoh last night and WOW, what a super great guy. Very sincere. I was at his place to get help fixing my bent and twisted DR650.

There was a great looking old XT with one of his fairings mounted up. It. Is. Amazing. The fit and finish is perfect and the lights will give you a sunburn if you put skin in front of it and instant blindness if you look directly at it. Truly a great product that should be had by anyone the rides over 45MPH or would ever have to ride in low/no light conditions.

I will own one of these set ups, I but mainly just wanted to vouch for Sanjoh (John) and his amazing hospitality, competence, and genuine personality. I would not hesitate to do business with a man like this.


Thanks Sanjoh and I look forward to riding with you as soon as I heal.
