I'm amazed. At how you managed to adapt that thing and fit the light, and how you managed to do it so quick. Do you have 3 day weekends in Singapore??? Or are you friends with every workshop in town?
That's a totally unique pig, visually it looks real good, and that fairing looks like it forms a pretty good air scoop too.
Well done dude.

Will that front fender be a problem with mud, if you get a heavy build-up on the front wheel?

hahaha..not friends with every workshop dude...the fairings all done up across the border...just 5mins ride after the border...takes 2 weeks to get it fit right on with my XR and all the paintwork..the fairings is left at the shop to be completed...i am working during office hours time....so sundays is off...with alternate saturday...
So last saturday morning,after giving them a call and got confirmation on the fairings done,i ride over to get it fix right on...then yesterday,i am not doing any rides,so i just did the respraying of the top fairings...and by noon,i took the pig out for a little ride...awesome...

oh about the front fender,thats what i thought so...but i will give a try this Thursday since its our National day and its a holiday..

Did a test ride today...as usual...its raining like there's no tomoro in the early hours of 7am...lots of single track,slippery ruts,mudpools,beach sand,clay mud,you name it...but no steep hills...:p

the Rallye fairings did well...it didnt affect any of my riding postures,and even with low branches,it perform as good as without any fairing...nothing came off for sure..:applause:
