FZ-07 Round headlight conversion

Recommended Posts

FZ-07 Cafe?
 
Got a 7" round headlight kit, whatcha think?
As usual, this is work in progress.  Need to get some new signal lights as the OEM ones won't fit.

I like it a lot! Can you tell me where you found the light and screen?

Makes it look about 8 years older... I prefer the sleek modern look personally, but good work nonetheless. I would like to see it with the dual round lights (a la a 2010 Triumph street triple) so if you decide to try those out as well I would enjoy the picture...

I'll probably do the same if I ended up doing the R6 front end swap one day.

The striple would look better if the headlights were fork mounted instead of stuck way out in front on that frame mount.

Bubba, it looks great 'though I agree with thomascrown that a café racer should have a lower and smaller headlight, plus of course clip-on handlebars... so great looking, but not IMHO a café racer.

Maybe just lower. So the screen rises just over the gauge.

I got everything from motodemic.com. I noticed they had a kit for the FZ-09 and inquired about fitting it to my FZ-07. Brad from Motodemic was a great help. In the end, I ordered the round headlight, standard length brackets for 41 mm forks, and the Dart fly screen. I don't think the 2 other shorter brackets they have will not work as there will be clearance issues. I have say the quality of the parts are top shelf! The brackets are like little art sculptures! And the packaging was the best I've ever seen!
 
It was a straight forward install. I cut off the OEM plastic upper fork covers and mounted the brackets and light. If you wish to mount it up high like mine then you'll either have to order slightly longer brackets ~1/2" longer, or take a BFH to the back of the light housing as the ignition barrel is in the way. If you're ok with mounting it lower, from my pic above it would be similar to moving the upper bracket down to where the lower bracket is, then it will work out of the box. I used the BFH method as Motodemic does not have the longer brackets in stock and I wanted the light to sit up high.
 
Go Jays go!

Was the fly screen necessary (as in does it look bad/incomplete without it)? Any chance to get a pic without the screen?
