Personally,,, That fairing seems a little much. I've had wings with fairings that large but on a KLR it seems like a monster.
You lost me on the "dolphin lowers". I even Googled it to see if I've fallen behind on some new motorcycle term. I think of myself as pretty up to date. I don't even call my KLR an enduro. LOL.
Craig is really pretty good at focussing on function over form. When he was building the Windjammers you could get optional lowers. That was awonderful fairing.
"Dolphin lowers"; you haven't fallen behind. It is an old term.
Back in the day when all bikes were naked bikes and you wanted to build a sport bike they had these things called 'dolphin fairings'. They looked like this:
There were semi-dolphin fairings that looked like this:
Some of the manufacturers made detachable lowers for your semi-dolphin, thus 'dolphin lowers'.
All of the old manufacturers, Vetter, Wixom, Bates, Sprint, Krauser etc are long gone, so you can't find this sort of stuff anymore as a general purpose item. There are a couple of compnaies making re-pop stuff, but it's pretty specific and spendy.
Vetter is the only person who has made anything remotely decent for the KLR, and he's gotten into hyper-miling. He seems to have dropped the project several years ago in favor of doing the hyper-miling thing.
This is where the term came from:
