Here is a sneak peak of my Britannia Composites Lynx R fairing that’s going on my KLR650. Two features I am stoked about are the powerful dual lights and adjustable screen.

THe stock 2008+ KLR lights are fine, but nothing amazing when it gets dark. Couple that with my aging eyes and I’ve been wanting more lumens on the road. Accessory lights are a cheap and cheerful way to add brightness to your lights, but I hate having extra stuff hanging off the bike that’s most likely going to be ripped off first time the bike takes a nap. With powerful main lights they are clean, simple and protected from all, but the worst crashes.

No single fairing will work for everyone so it’s a total crapshoot if you buy a fairing whether it will be better or worse than what you currently have. At least with an adjustable fairing you can find the sweet spot that works best for protection and reduction in wind noise. For a dualsport it’s also great that you can lower it out of the way for offroad riding.

I’m hoping to get this installed in the next couple weeks.

    Damn those aren’t cheap! Looks rad though, and reminds me of the cool older KTM style ADV bikes.

    Looking forward to seeing how it looks after you get it installed.

      Did you get this installed yet? Would love to see how you supported it and wiring for the lights

    Not installed yet. Spent last weekend stripping tank and stock fairing off bike then mock fitting up tank and fairing. Ran into a couple snags that slowed me down.

    I should get the fairing installed and wired this weekend.

    Hi. So you are putting this on a 2008 gen 2 KLR? I’m definitely interested in one.
