Hows the high beam?

Has this proven to resolve the "windscreen disgust" that everyone, included me, has with this bike? Meaning the wind noise and buffeting?

I just installed mine....





All the install photos here...
http://www.pinkbike.com/u/radek/album/2014-adventures/

I have a 990 with the euro light and the wiring is really simple for that. I basically removed the whole harness that comes with the Voodoo and simply plugged in the lights to my existing connectors I had for my previous HID lights. The low beam plugged right in, the squadron i had to exchange the connector from the harness as it's a different style. So I didn't have to run anything to my battery which made the job really fast.

I didn't need this...


Also I originally thought that the gps mount came integrated with the unit, but am happy that it does not as I don't have a flat unit that i use. So you dont need to install the gps mount and it simply looks like this..


Good job Ian and Lica. Thing bolted on nicely. Going for a test ride now...as soon as the hail stops.

My '07 990 has the Euro light package as well. I didn't want to cut up my stock harness and I want to utilize the switched and unswitched accessory circuits that came with the Voodoo, so I just pulled the OEM style North American 3-bladed connector from the Voodoo harness and wired a stock KTM Molex connector.

You can pickup a kit that contains all the parts needed for 2 complete connector pairs at an electronics parts store. It's Waldom Electronics .093" 6 Circuit Male/Female Molex Kit : 1261PRT. And contrary to posts in other headlight threads, these are the proper 6pin connectors.

Sorry - bad cell pic

Also thought it was integrated, might be possible to use this solution with my oil pressure gauge installation, is the screen tilted back compared to the OEM?

Its a quite tight between screen and gauge:

Johan, I'd say at best it's going to be very tight. The new fairing is swept back much more than the stock screen. Photobucket is down for me right now and I can only attach 1 pic, but here it is for reference: measurements are approximate @ 3.75"

I found the darkest, straightest, two-lane road I could find without any overhead street lights. These lights are SUPER BRIGHT so I doubt anyone would really need any extra auxiliary lights anymore with this setup.

There's a little bit of a yellow/warm hue in these photos, but that's just the camera. In person the lights are pure white.

Thats great, thanks for going to the effort.
Can certainly tell the quality difference compared to others

Went for a night ride today with the Voodoo Fairing on a dirt road on Vedder mountain The projector is excellent. Nice wide, even light that is not overly spotty/bright up close. The Squadron throws far complementing the low beam to create an even field. One of the things we talked about when testing different light combos for the fairing was to eliminate hot spots close to you which would then desentize your eyes making the hight beam at distance less effective. I think this combo does the job really well.

Switching to hight beam at 1:16 in video

I've been riding with a moose short windscreen as I couldn't resolve the buffeting with the stock or touring windscreen.

Do you have buffeting issues with the stock screen?

and has the britannia kit resolved them?
