Just having a bit crack on here with all my internet buddies is a great help.

clocks in their lowest setting:


Clocks in their highest setting (well actually they could rotate round and point forward at the moment but imagine the fairing is in front of it)


Probably where it will end up for day to day use:

So sorry to hear about Emma, but I'm sure she'll be kicking it's ar5e [filtered] again in no time.
I know we're a 1000 miles away (practically speaking) but if there is anything at all that we can do to help, don't hesitate to ask.
On another note, can't wait to see how blue turns out.

Likewise, so sorry to hear the news.

cheers for the offer rob but I may as well do this from scratch, given I have to make the plug mould etc

Sorry to hear that news fella, fingers crossed for you all.

I like the sound of an adjustable screen - I may have to pinch that idea for Kylie ;)

I quite like the looks of the side DRL's, but hard to think what it will look like in a fairing, so you may be right about being busy.

I have an old SV1000 top fairing you could have.  I don't think it will help you since you have gone vertical alignment of the lights whereas the SV is very wide horizontal, but you'd be welcome to have it if you wanted to chop it up and use pieces as a base for support etc (it's cracked on one side so cutting up wouldn't be an issue).

Not a great deal happened lately. Got some bad news about Emma, her brain tumour has returned. We are waiting to see the surgeon to see what they want to do.  Its just one of those things we have to deal with. She is super strong and I am sure she will be fine.


So I managed to do a little bit last night. I have made myself an adjustable bracket for the clocks. I got the idea from a review of a triumph tiger 800xc, it had clocks where the angle was adjustable.  I thought 'I like that idea' so copied it.





I added some DRLs to the side of the main lights, but I am thinking its a bit too busy so might be chopping them off and putting them somewhere else.



You have to imagine it all contained within a fairing. not easy to do at the moment.

I have been thinking about the fairing options, and I might do away with a screen altogether and just make everything out of fibreglass (or carbon fibre)

Considering my 850 lights stay on at <cough> motorway speeds, on cheapo fork brackets, I think you'll be more than fine with those :)

based on the steel I have used it will probably be around mach 2

fairing might have dissolved before then but the lights will still be on
