Has anyone converted there S3 to a Single Headlight? Where did you get it? I have only seen a conversion kit on NewSpeed3.com.

Most importantly, Do you have any pics?

thx -Matt

A single headlight totally kills the hooligan look of the Speed Triple and it's the one thing that really makes it stand out in a crowd. Without it it's as if you ripped off its brand mark. Example: take a Coca-Cola and rip off its label, what do you have..? A cola..

Definatly don't like it. The speed triple has the distinct dual headlights that really set it apart from EVERYOTHER bike. Why make it seem like its just another bike.

But to each his own. Ill keep my dual headlights. :-D

If you want a single headlight can I suggest that you buy a Suzuki Bandit. The double headlighted S3 has become its trademark!

Are we forgetting the roots of the S3?



Do what you want man, be opinionated it's a free country! I really like both. With clip-ons I like the single, and with regular bars I like the double. I guess I'm just weird. Have you seen the LSL Cafed S3? If I was going to buy a 05+ S3 it would look alot like that. I first saw this bike in a German Streetfighter mag that I bought In Germany this summer when I was at the MotoGP at Sachsenring. Check it out here.
