This is what I got done last night...

Hole in place... took an hour to decide where.



The light.



The switch I had left over from a nitrous install.



Bolted in place... had to go get some nylon washers 'cause the mounting stud is "strange".



Another view.



The 3 shots of light patterns and intensities have been deleted and replaced. Go to post 67 to see camparative pics.

The last part of this will have to wait until tonight or tomorrow. I need to aim the beam on a real road in the dark... before I cut a hole in the fairing ... Only get one chance to do this right, and the whole getting shit lined up and the angles correct thing is a bit scary.

More to come...

how much for your old nitro kit?

good luck with the alignment creep - measure 50 times, only buy one more fairing -

nice werk creepy... so what do you figure based on what you found? ya think i'd be happy with two of those little cockwallopers mounted like the touratech guys mount their lights? they give off enough light to make my night blind ass a little safer on the highways?

you guys can have the pencil beams I want a couple minny floads pointed down for the night time technical stuff.
The stock E has a horendus blind spot from the front of the bike to ten yards out. Sucks when that bulder dissapears in the shadow. I'd rather see right up to the front tire.
If I was traveling highway miles the pencilbeam would be OK' but... I just don't put that many highway miles on.

The spot has quite a bit more spread that you might think, my biggest concern would be what is about threee seconds out... if something is right in front of you, say a second or less, all you have time for is to say "Oh Shit"... three seconds is enough time to devise a plan and make a manuver.
IMO, the stock lowbeam isn't too bad for up close and personal, it's the highbeam that blows chunks.

I'm going to aim it to about 100 meters out tonight, that'll give me a better idea of how tight the beam is.
Once I get the light positioned, then it will be the measure 50 times, cut once and pray, on the fairing.

Chrissy boy, you gota loosen up brotha... it's just a bunch of plastic, have fun with it! ... anybody can slap on a bracket or change a seat... go out on a limb and fuck with something.

Look what Passy did... took a lot of gutz to bedliner his whole bike. I don't care for it much... but if Passy likes it... My opinion ain't worth a crap.

I'll know more tonight. But it looks like a spot and a flood, or two spots would do some serious damage to the heart of darkness. I think this one spot might be all I need to overcome the blind spot I perceive.

Did ja' get that screw?

blah blah blah blah....
three seconds out on the road are a whole lot farther than three seconds out on a trail or double track. I'm not worried about three Road seconds. on a trail thats like forever. and remember your stock lights are way better than my single E' unit.
so I get ghosting and shaddows no matter what, low or high beam. they just change places respectively.
Sides if they make a flood I might go for that but first things first. Great something else to add to the freaking list.
