KTM 640 Fibreglass head fairing
« on: March 24, 2009, 03:41:43 pm »
Greetings all,

For those that remember the Dirty Duke from my earlier posts, well the Duke 2 fairng just does not cut the mustard on our tough roads and I finished my Lesotho trip with way too many cable ties for my own liking........so, reckon that a 640 Adv type fairing is the answer BUT...

There is always a but isnt there?
The Adv faring intergrates with the std Adv tank, and my tank is the std LC4 Enduro/Duke type tank. The 690 fairing that was shown for sale in the smalls section, will not work as it too intergrates with the tank.

So what I am hoping to start with a 640 Adv fairing in fibrglass that I can them trim/modify to suit my tank interface.
I hit google for a reference but came up short....any of the dawgs know of the direction I need to be pointed?
I could start by making a mould of a std plastic Adv fairing, but for that I would need the Adv fairing as a sample and i dont have one of those

Any tips, greatly appreciated
