You might want to look into the Baja Designs 4" kit:

Or you can go dual 8": https://www.bajadesigns.com/NET/C-16...NCH+RACELIGHTS

yeah ive looked at them. they seem pretty expensive. i dont know their quality or if there are other 4", 6" lights out there that would be better. I would rather make my own mount and buy the lights to just bolt on.

Hey Caesjeep. Looking forward to seeing your build. I'm in the OC as well with a F800 wouldn't mine checking your build out in person or at least go for the break in ride

Looks like you Altrider crash bars held up pretty good how well did they perform in the crash?(I got em too)

Had a very low speed tip over yesterday and I didnt get a scratch on the body work.

Yeah man i always say two heads are better than one. it would be cool to have someone else to tell me what they think of it in person, or if my ideas are retarded. Im always looking for people to ride with.

I think it would work fine but not look that nice. With the high fender I think it will look much better with two separate hoses.

Try this thread - - - - http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...ght=f800+brake for an idea. No sense in reinventing the wheel.

Just installed the air vent panels. they look pretty killer.

There is this little tab that has to click upwards, but it wont go.
[IMG]2011-10-05_18-22-19_957[/IMG]

So i had to trim it alittle. i took about 1/8th off with a razor blade. clicked in fine after that.
[IMG]2011-10-05_18-22-45_39[/IMG]

It clips in at 4 locations and screws in at 1.

They look GREAT!

After taking the crash bars, which was almost as hard as putting them on. Im not as happy with Altrider Products as they look.

Keep it up man. There are so many amazing mods on this forum you might have to make it a two-wheel drive before you get any attention. Let me know when you have confirmation on the specs for the Spiegler lines. I've seen guys on here using them for the front fender/brakeline build you're doing.

I have the lengths i need and now i just need to call Spiegler and get the info on their kit. im going for the "three line type 950 fitting". no need to re-invent the wheel, right?
