So I have been wanting do to this build for a long time. Now that I have some time on my hands and the resources I need, I am going to give it a go. I am building a frame-mounted mini rally fairing. The components will all be 3D printed for the first iteration and I later plan to laser cut a stronger version and provide flat DXF files for laser cut metal versions. I will attach pictures as I design the mounting and as soon as I finish my prototype, I will release files so anyone else can make one too. I am not sure how I am going to create the fairing itself, I do have some fiberglass experience so I will most likely try that. My prototype will be installed on a 1983 XR350R I am rebuilding and I will also install one on my '85 XR600R and I may possibly make one for my '07 YZ250F as well, so the mounting will be designed to fit multiple makes and models. The fairing will house two LED light pods and have a mount for a standard sized cell phone. I may make other mountings for the fairing like a single light version or secondary mounts for trail computers etc. I plan to design it to be completely modular. The first iterations will all be installed with large zip-ties for easier modification. Later iterations will be either hard mounted (welded tabs) or bolted. Anyone who has attempted this before any advice would be appreciated. First prototype I am printing pictured below:
Hi everyone, Today, I've picked up a used rally kit for my 09' Yamaha WR 450 f. The kit includes: Two seat tanks Two front tanks Front rally fairing A seat by JVL Nav tower with headlight and two tripmasters Two HGS mufflers with the exhaust pipe that runs under the bike Kevlar bashplate with two little toolboxes and a small water container Two extra wide radiators with cooler fan Oil cooler Lots of mounting material.,/ small brackets The funny thing is, that I've already encountered this specific kit on ThumperTalk in a post going back to 2013. Posted by a user by the name of Sidewinder1970. The kit used to be mounted on a 06' Yamaha WR450F and has raced in the Africa Eco Race of 2016 by Thomas Schattat (NR.128). Afterwards, the kit was sold to someone in the Netherlands. This gentleman never used the kit, since he sold his WR before he got the chance to build his own rally bike. Fast forward a couple of years, and now I'm the proud owner of the kit! I will be posting updates of the build as time goes on.
