Custom Solo Headlight 09 Speed Triple

Hated how far out the stock lights stuck out and how huge they were, used one to make a solo setup

Need a better from all angles! Lol!
How did you mount this? New bracket or old modified?

Cheers,

Sweet. You re-used one of the original lights?

Yes I re-used one of the original lights and as for how I mounted it I made two brackets that mount off of the lower bolt hole in the neck from the original mount. I'll post more pics

This is how they are mounted from the lower hole on the neck and then where they bolt to the headlight I made a spacer to go between the two brackets coming off the headlight so that the brackets I made would clamp the light onto the spacer to prevent it from flipping down when I come off of a wheelie

Inginuity at it's finest. I went the easy route and installed the LSL. It pulls the light in closer as well as the instrument cluster. I agree with you in that I thought it stuck out too far.

I love the double bug eyes but a single using one of the classic round ones looks better than i thought it would. Nice work and good job making the bike your own.
