Hi, I'm thinking about buying this faring for my XR. I know they are sold for HD Road King. Does anyone here have already do it and is it hard to fit ? If you have pics, it will be appreciated, thanks !
@BBob, yes my first real streetbike was also an XS650 (1979 XS650SF),
previous had been an early AT2 Yamaha 125cc motocross machine (trail bike really) purely used off-road, and a Honda C50 that I took on a long tour which died after a few hundred miles of merciless thrashing:devil
A blatant Triumph/BSA/Norton clone for sure, yet when new it didn't leak oil, and could outperform the Brits in every area except handling (tending to weave a bit up around the ton)
To me they were the epitome of motorcycling, they looked sounded, and performed like a real motorcycle, for less money, and they had street cred.
They had a kickstart, and vibrated, a mans machine!...it took balls and bravado to ride one hard.
Basic construction meant routine maintenance and tuning could be performed by the owner, and with 750 kits, cams and carb upgrades they were a force to be reckoned with in their day.
Very successful in the hands of Kenny Roberts on the dirt flat tracks over there.
Over the years Ive owned a succession of models, ironically going backwards in time to XS2 x2, XS1B, XS650 x2 , TX650 x2,
on the lookout for another at the right price (they're quite sought after these days and a decent one needs good money)
subscribed to the thread..... i liked this fairing on the Ness Custom Cross Roads that I have found online. When I emailed Ness about the fairing they confirmed that you had to fab up some of your own brackets.. i keep my eyes on ebay quite frequently for one and was thinking of trying to reuse the factory crossroads windshield mount or possibly trying to find the brackets they use for the batwing fairing for the crossroads and see if either of those could be modified easy enough without a welder or anything like that.
will be keeping my eye on your progress though!!! can't wait to see the finished product.
I have been looking for a XC trunk but have been having a hard time finding one (that isn't outrageously priced). I see lots of Vision trunks for sale and was just wondering if anyone has ever tried mounting one on their XC. I haven't looked that closely at them side by side so I'm not sure how...
I also frequent a Wrangler TJ forum - there is a thread similar to this there and it has 1,000s of responses. You can get ideas and learn from what others are doing with their toys - so, lets see if it works here...
I installed the 1/4 turn throttle from Lloyds. I did not find...
Or a k&n. 2010 cross country
Here in Canada parts available suck...Amazon got one for over 300$. Wtf???
And why is it when I search here for " airfilter part number" I get a bunch of crap....those who say " use the search function". Have you every really tried to use it? Lolol
I just purchased a 14 Cross Roads last weekend. So far I love it but I have a problem and a question.
The front and rear turn signals are acting as running lights. I understand the front should be like that but I am pretty sure that you shouldn’t run amber lights in the back.
