The install of the light itself is pretty straight forward. Just remove the top triple clamp (no need to remove gauges), hang it to the side. Unplug and remove all the electrical connections from the stock bucket. Slide the whole light assembly and headlight ears up off the forks. New light installed with the BC adapter plate right to the old rectifier location.That looks really nice Zen! Was the install hard? I have been trying to find a post detailing installation of 5"3/4 but haven't found any.
Thanks for the reply Zen. A few questions
1) Did you use a torque the bolt on top triple clamp?
2) Did you empty your tank before taking it off?
3) Does the BC Lamp come with High and low beams?
4) It looks like you cut the connectors on both the ends. Would it be possible to fit the wiring keeping the old connectors?
5) Do you remember how much time the install took?
Thanks a lot!
The headlight comes with a standard three pronged connector in the bucket already and just bare wires sticking out the back. I extended these wires and the attached the quick connectors to splice with where I cut off the old headlight wiring.Thanks Zen! Your post was very detailed and helpful.
If I understood correctly - for the wiring part you cut the headlight connector wire, then put connector in the bucket and taking out the wire end out through the hole in the bucket. Attached the quick release on ends where you cut the connector wire.
Been on the board for a while... guess I get around.:grin2:tankz;8060250 I did some more research and I want the headlight to be seated back between the fork. So I searched some more and found the following post: [url said:http://www.triumphrat.net/club-cafe/203900-head-light-brackets-for-5-3-4-side-mount-headlight.html[/url]
You've also commented on that post
I don't have any tools to machine parts so not sure I can work on the part as mentioned in the post. Did you ever try to turn around the BC bracket to seat the lamp deeper.
