Mounts are well made. Make your own shield or buy one from Tom.

Windshield

I bought an small MSA universal windshiled from Twisted Throttle for my DR & it bolts up to the handlebars with lots of adjustment for height & angle.

Cut down KTM 990 shield.


Weld some tabs to my 8" race light bracket and voila! It works great.

That came out pretty good. Most of them are hideous.

+1 the MRA RoadShield is top quality, provides great protection, and is adjustable on the fly. I have photos posted on a windscreen thread about a KLXS not long ago.

+2 on the MRA screens. I've owned two different models and will buy a third. The mounting kits are great and have a lot of adjustability. This is the Road Race model on my XMoto.

Try the Lynx fairing from Britannia composites. I mounted one on my KTM 690 and found it to be excellent for both wind protection and function. I owned a "big red pig" before buying my 690 and wished the Lynx was available then. Get both hid lights too for the best lighting.

very cool design

I like the design. Does it block a lot of the buffeting? Referring to the Aimhi fairing

You might start with a super-cheap Harbor Freight shield just to see what sort of coverage you'll need. Scroll on page 2 to see the posts from BPG; the cheap little screen works much better than you'd imagine:

And be sure to check out Istewart's trash can design:

Most everything you see on the DR screen thread should apply to your XR. Good luck.
