Svlwolf are you thinking of making it a fixed fairing or using the nose like the cockpit screen or cowling on the naked models IE  fixed to the headlight and binnacle ?

welcome aboard svl

yes some of us have cut the fairings length back a bit so not so much protection around the knees area ....could that be more like getting rid of the interference to the knees trying to get back into a good riding position and constantly poking the knee caps or catching them at least ...hurts as well

but that fairing looks to be raised a fair bit in height to fit the higher bars ?

the tree (metal frame ) that supports the fairing would need to be modified  to suit ...perhaps they have used a rt tree instead of an rs tree to gain the height ?

the rs fairing does sit a fair bit lower than all the rest by about 3-4 inches .

have a similar thought in mind for a future project



cheers

How handy are you svlwolf?

Check out Scheffer's post.
He has pretty much re modeled his fairing.
