Customising a rally type fairing

Post  AJsgp on Thu Dec 11, 2008 11:58 am

It's really no big deal for some,but it's an epic just yet for myself.The good part about something like this,is,the memories will always stick around with you for a long time.
Introduction :
Before the whole thing got started,I've bought a used 2002 XR650R with already high milege of 60,000km.I've gotten used to the bike doing the weekend trails almost every sunday.

The Mods :
The XR have been slowly built up for the highway long run.I've fitted a Acerbis Sahara 25l tank,black excel rims,and was customising a rally type fairings which have been much influenced by those dakar rallye bikes.But the idea is simple,i got a beaten up Honda NX650 front fairings,and did some fibreglass job.

Here's the process of welding a bracket at the front of the bodyframe to hold the headfairing bracket.





At this point,it looks like it's a screwed up job.



I've added a KTM radiator fan for cooling the bike on traffic situation.


It takes 2 weeks to complete the fairings job.



And on it's 1st day out.



2 weeks after the fairings done,did one tight trail

Rammed against a tree during the tight and slippery clayey section of the trail early sunday morning...well...after those breathless moment,headed for the open section to clear the air...
