That's a heck of a drive. You are welcome to stop by and check it out. Shoot me a pm if you are interested.

Just did the trip north a few weeks ago. In Miami for a month or so again this time.
Do way too much driving in this job.

Give me a call if you want to ride, have a few bikes in the garage that need excercise.

Be careful in Miami, they got face eaters and people who talk different.

Hey did that other guy ever get you xrl dimensions? If not I have mine in the garage with expired tags so it's not going anywhere until stickers come in. Unfortunately bright lights are pointless in ak in the summer because it hardly gets dark until early am but I do like the conspicuity! That and I wired up the 60's to my snowmobile in the winter :-) Even rolled it over on top if them and only slightly bent a foot with the hd brackets on it! All I hand to syrup is unplug the spade and bullet plugs and remount lights and plug everything back in on other vehicle.

Yep, we should be good on the XRL, thanks. You will appreciate the extra protection from the pesky bugs

Hi Sanjoh,

Is a model being developed for the suzuki DR650? I recently purchased two model 60's from you and have them mounted on my hand guards. Will this faring be available without lights so I can use my already purchased adv monster lights to fit in it? TIA for your reply!

-Rich

DR650
The DR650 should be very similar to the DRZ400 and DR350 mounting and electrics. If you can measure the width of the oem brackets that hold the headlight bracket, I can give you a better answer.

Xchallenge
Whats the width of the headlight mount (the side mounts). What does the headlight connector look like?

The only difference between the DRZ400 and DR650 headlight/shroud mounting is the diameter of the holes that slip over the fork tubes. Both models share the same headlight, and the same headlight shroud. DRZ on the left has larger holes due to the larger forks. Other than that, the whole headlight assembly and mounting hardware is the same.
