I wonder if anybody knows if the original 900 Thunderbird from '95 and the original Speed triple from the same era has the same size headlight? There is this really cool Le Mans Mk I replica fairing made for the S3 that I'd like to fit to my TB, but it depends on the headlightopening being the same.

Hi,

The headlight assembly is the same and so the opening would match. (You can check the part numbers on BikeBandit).

I am not sure about the mounting ears - I assume they position at the same height? What will you do with the front indicators, as I think a Le Mans fairing will cover the current Thunderbird positioning for the indicators?

Thank you, Geoff :)

If the indicators are in the way, I will reposition them or fit ministalks or whatever it takes ;)

Since my parts are scattered between a barn far away and my home - does anybody know if the TB use a 7" or an 8" lens?

I believe it's a 7" lens. I bought a Dart Flyscreen for my Legend and that's made for the 7" lens on the Bonnie. And since the Legend and TB have the same lens...

Just the n00b trying to contribute...I hope I'm not wrong. :eek:
