I suspect he has an F650GS Dakar.

Thanks.
While that sounds pretty exciting, I'm aware of my clumsiness and realize a sidecar will probably not be in my future.

Haha

It's my '06 GS headlight. And in a trial fit process.
I was trying to put a led ring inside. And you can also see a bi xenon projector has been set up three.
Let's imagine how the product finished.
P/S: I can't recall the English name of the Led ring, but it is sort of Angel eye ring of car headlight. This one is soft ring, easily bended. And with awesome color.

Well after having to call CAA to jump start the bike a couple of weeks ago, due to my lack of electrical outlets in my underground to trickle charge my bike, short commute, and squealing starter, I replaced the battery with an Odyssey and pulled the starter to clean it.

The starter was pretty filled with crap, so the cleaning was probably overdue. Unfortunately it didn't get rid of the squealing start, so ordered a new starter. The first time I removed the starter it took me nearly an hour, second time 15 minutes! So when the new starter arrived last night it was an easy 20 minute job to replace the old one.

Wow what a HUGE difference!!!! The bike starts like it probably did when brand new!!! So $180 for a new battery and $225 for a new starter, $0 for labor, so a huge thanks to the HoW for the instructions!!

Ya it seems enough people have had issues with the 01' gs having a front wheel failure for me to not trust beating it up and commuting regularly on it. Not to mention it gave me an excuse to get some badass forks.

So you do have a F650GS or similar? If so, you are in the wrong forum. You need the one below this one.

Thanks! Photos, or it didn't happen, right? Did the loop counter-clockwise across to Mississippi then down to New Orleans. Came back up through Montgomery. 1,018 miles in 16 hours and 10 minutes.

Great job, wow!
Installing a proper HID projector is tempting if you van leave with the risk of destroying the headlight without achieving a good result. Did the projector fit completely inside the headlight housing? They are usually pretty long. How did you remove the front glass? Baked the headlight in the oven?
