The 1980-ish look of the fairing also bothered me somewhat.


Its what i thought, but didn't want to say - I'm glad you said it.

New shape looks a million times better.  :thumleft:

I have a DR650R - supposedly a DAKAR model.

Has the piece below the tank giving it the look of a larger tank - 1992 model.

Do you think I could fit this to my bike?

If so imagine making it orange LOL?

Looks good  :thumleft:  Is it just me or does the 'windscreen' part look a bit too high?

Nope, it's just you  ;). I made it too high so it can be trimmed down as aal riders prefer different action from their fairings depending on rider height, riding style etc. Most guys would want to cut a center section out to insert clear panel too.

I had a look at pics of your model DR. I guess its a steel tank. The fairing can be cut to fit the edge of your tank, but fitting will be limited to Sika-flex straight onto the steel + bracket from headstock. Stick vynil over tank before Sika-flex goes on to make removal effortless in future because Sika sticks like nothing else!

Eventhough my DRZ is in the market I'm still working on the fairing. The plug is finally done so I'll have the mould ready by the end of August. If my bike is gone by then I'll need someone's Z to take final measurements which means that person gets first fairing cheap-cheap!

Sorry guys, I'm spending too much time on the paths at drift sands lately and had some spectacular wipe-outs too. Anyone have a spare original indicator perhaps? New = R570 FFS!
