Recommended Posts

has anybody changed out the headlight assembly for something else? another headlight assembly? a small light bar?

 

trying to get some ideas of how it would look/perform

 

edit:

 

ive got the cyclops LED bulb, while it performs great, ive never been a huge fan of the 07's headlight

This is what I'll probably end up doing to my bike. Hope this helps!

I replaced the stock light with two PIAA led driving lights.  I wired both directly to the high beam circuit and have had no problems with blowing any fuses for 4,000 miles now.   So, no need for any added fancy wiring using aftermarket led lights.

Yes. I replaced over a year ago. The OEM headlight was also my least favorite part.

 

The 1st pic here is what I have now. These headlights plug directly into the OEM harness. They are projectors with halogen bulbs with 1 on for high and the other on for low. When they burn out I plan to replace them with LEDs and finagle a way so that with the high beam, both are on. The 2nd and 3rd pic are an older, cheaper assembly.

Currently I am using the standard bracket but the headlight is mounted to the turn signal mount which is about the same length as the short bracket. I plan on ordering the short brackets to see if they work but I have not done that yet.
