Finally got this bastard on. It only came with puny fork clamps which were nowhere near the size of my USD forks so I made my own brackets and mounted it directly to the frame. I think I'll get some PIAA bulbs when I find some locally or a bulb goes. They seem pretty damn bright in the garage...

I'm going to do a complete photoshoot tomorrow morning or afternoon. Just need to find a good location.

Right now the Honda is gone and replaced w/ Daytona 675. We also seem to have obtained a 2003 CR250R.

He was referring to http://www.parts4naked.com/

The fairing he's talking about is the Roadracing Alien fairing. I got this one from Germany for $300. BUT, it was a PITA to come up with a mount for.

I'll have more photos this afternoon of the entire bike so you guys can see the side view and such.

Yep, its a quakeIII sticker. Being its a triple and I'm a hardcore gamer going to grad school for video game design (Masters of Interactive Technology), I thought it was fitting.

H3 bulbs in projector housings. They're about as bright as the 1050's low beams. I'm going to replace the stock bulbs with PIAAs or an HID kit if it won't melt the housings...

I couldn't really tell a major difference until I was in a full tuck. Wind noise was loud in a full tuck, but the wind went right around my helmet. Wind resistance doesn't seem to be noticeable like other fairing projects I've tried. I'll have photos tonight. I've just been busy with class and chores. Charged up my camera's battery earlier.
