« on: August 07, 2006, 03:03:46 PM »
does anyone know what kind of fairing is on the vision on this page http://www.benvanhelden.nl/Condorclub/xz550/XZ550startpagina.html (second one from the bottom-kind of a graphite with a white stripe) i really like it. it looks different from most of the fairings i've seen..... thanks!

That looks a lot like a Hannigan fairing.  There are a couple of them in the gallery section, but this one looks like the windscreen has had some modifications.

If you have an accident on a motorcycle, it's always your fault. Tough call, but it has to be that way. You're in the right, and dead -on a bike. The principle is not to have any accident. If you're involved in an an accident, it's because you did not anticipate. Then, by default, you failed.

that is pretty sweet looking
82 with fairing, rejetted, 83 turbo seca fork and brakes coming whenver I acquire the rest of the parts, and she stops breaking long enough to be in the garage for an upgrade instead of a repair.

Yup, that's a Hannigan fairing.

The only person i've ever known with one Jason Morris (pics in the gallery) he said he eventually took it off because the buffeting at highway speeds was terrible. he sold it to someone here, I think Jeff Stobie.... (whatever happened to him?)

There's a lot of neat stuff there.  I love that fairing, if only my first one had worked out so well.  Is it an older design?  It dosen't look anything like what Hannigan is marketing now.

That's a really slick looking rearset too.

Rider2>Well it has different geometry now.

Buffetting is the nasty airflow that comes over the windscreen, knocking your head around or creating a loud booming noise in the helmet.  Very uncomfortable.

  This is not one of Dave Hannigans Fairings,it is possibly a European or British Fairing. All of the Hannigan Fairings look similar to the one on my Green 82 pictured in the Gallery,they differ in size.The pictured in the RoV gallery is a SS or super sport they also made a larger ST model. Excellent protection even better than my R100rs fairing.
