On the original removal, I did as I thought: Ground down the heads of a couple of grade 8 bolts just enough so that they'd twist in and bite, then I think I connected those to a slotted puller bar and tightened them down.

Good luck.
Thanks! Doesn't look too difficult. Maybe I'll open it up and find that it's already changed! Doubt it though.

Cyclops Headlight

Has anyone heard anything good or bad about these headlights?

http://www.cyclopsadventuresports.co...products&id=94

Looks to be DOT approved so I'm thinking it might be a neat addition for my DR project.

Found some info in http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=712386

if it were me I would be more inclined to go with Baja Designs. Lots of options but their base model for an 8 inch is cheaper than what your looking at and it comes with their outstanding quality that they are known for

http://bajadesigns.com/ProductDetail...8-Inch-Halogen

ps....hows the DR coming along? Carb ?

I agree. The Baja Design kits are nice. And as much as the HID kits are bright as hell, decent light is possible from halogen. Less complexe because you're only dealing with a bulb, and cheap/reliable, too.

Also worth consideration: I've seen the DOT legal halogen kit from Trail-tech installed on a couple of bikes. Very good value for the $100 price tag. Probalby not nearly as bright, but if you add an auxiliary set of Denali LED flood lights, you'll have plenty of lighting.

Yes. I hope to put some time into that project over the winter.

Forks and steering damper are on. Just need to find some different sized bolts to get the handlebar clamps to mount to the triple clamp properly, then I can mount the fat bars and start to put all the controls back on.

I just ordered a new billet aluminum throttle tube that requires 15% less rotation to get to full throttle.

Carb is sitting right here beside me with the procycle.us rebuild kit. I'm going to sit down one night next week and figure out how it all goes together with the new jets.

Rear shock still needs to be put on but that is easy.

I also have all the stuff to do valve check/adjustments so I need to do that too.

Still on the shopping list are heated grips, Solstice lights, New turn signals (mounted to the barkbusters), and potentially a new headlight depending on how well the old one goes back on.

Did you get a new rear shock, or rebuild?

Could have saved a few bucks on the billet throttle tube. For $15, the OEM tube from a Yamaha R6 goes on without any issues.

If you want a hand with the carb and/or valves, let me know.

I've also got 1 brand new Solstice LED if you'd like to see it.
