here's a model I did in google sketchup of what I want the fairing to look like, and another pic of the bike this time with cardboard panniers, and trunk for approximation of size and location. the trunk is longer than it needs to be, but it looks like I'll be closer to 9' long.
If you are going to have a fan give some thought to putting it behind the motor,
I would probably have to move the battery or airbox to put anything behind the motor, as they block most of the space behind the motor.
I have also thought about oil cooling. The question is would that be enough. I used an IR thermometer, and the head gets to about 250 deg F before the crankcase hits 90.
