Dakar fairing

Post  PeteN95 on Mon May 08, 2017 5:35 pm

Just finished up mounting my new Kenaroo fairing on the "Dakar XR"! Used some triangular LED flush mount turn signals and some cheap Ebay LED 3" round headlights with a diode so they both go on with high beam. I used some old hand guard mounts and a cut up MTB bar for mounting my gauges. I am pretty happy with it. The Acerbis 6.3 gal tank is wide up front, but narrower than the Clarke 4.3 at the back.

That actually looks very nice indeed!
Why a Vector though, not a Vapor which will give you temperature?

Actually the Vector does have temp, just not a tach. I got it when I was racing RallyMoto because it has a rally timer feature.

Never knew Pete, then a Vector is actually nicer than I thought!
And I agree, very nice bike indeed, lacking superfluous clutter - great!

Thanks, BuRP.  The Vector also has a remote controller option that mounts on the bar.  To the left of the left mirror in the pic below you'll see a small set of 3 red buttons, these control the same functions as the 3 buttons on the Vector itself.  This allows you to manipulate the rally timer without taking your hand off the bar at high speed.

Post  itaiguy3 on Sun Aug 20, 2017 1:59 pm

Hi Pete,
I am new to this forum, about to do the Transamerica Trail and looking for a Front Headlight Mask Rally to upgrade my 2017 XR. I found links for European e-stores, but haven't found a US based store.
Can you assist here..?
-Wanting to upgrade front fairing and the gas tank.
Thanks !!

Not sure where my pics went, but my fairing was made by a guy in Texas by the name of Kenaroo on ADVRider.com.
