Navigation tower and fairing

With the clock ticking, the best thing to do was locate a kit. The closest kit I could find that would require minimal modifications is the Touratech nav tower and fairing designed for the G450X. The fairing is designed to line up with the Safari tank I’m using but lining it all up was a bit tricky as the nav tower did not bolt up to the Husqvarna frame. We needed to cut the BMW bracket, modify it and weld it to the steering head.

The bike at Scott Schriver’s shop. Scott is a Hendrick Motorsports fabricator/expert welder. He’s welding the modified bracket in the background.

Now that’s some good looking welds.
