Thanks, I went there and checked them out. They look smaller than what came with the bike.
I'm not suggesting using a Windjammer, that was just the thread title. However I would like to see something that would do a little better job of deflecting weather than the ones on that link. As it is I use the best gear I could find and am surviving the environment.
I dream about this issue and someday just may buy another road machine just to have the protection from weather. Before you give me hell about wanting a better fairing remember I live in and ride in Alaska. The conditions here on a good day are what people down south buy First Gear Kilimanjaro for. When I get stuck in a bad ride it is a genuine bad weather ride and chances are I can't ride out of it.
I bought the KLR for the ground clearance mostly so that I can use it to reach some of my back country fishing spots. It will carry a good load of gear and roll over logs and whatever else I need to cross but it would be cool if I were just a bit more protected from the wind when on the road. Actually the fairing is only good for catching rocks and rain. Beyond that it only serves to stir up turbulence for the ride. I would remove it completely but rocks and rain are an every day threat so...................
