Removed my fairing looking for a headlight n bucket

Post by nelsonabzan »



I just got all my fairing and tins off for paint. I am not putting my bags or fairing back on. I need a headlight and bucket and front and rear turn signals. Any ideas on which headlight and bucket I should use and how to mount the new turn signals in the front and rear. Thanks for any help .... would like to find someone that has stripped one down before

Well Oem stuff is hard to find..the rear requires new taillight mount too..to hold the turn signals, You need ears for the front headlight and turns signals. Oem again very hard to find. After market ears and buckets/headlights lots out there but hard to hide all the wires that were in the front weight box.

I have a complete rear taillight assembly with turn signal etc. $80 but no help with the headlight and front turn signals. If interested PM me.

I picked up a 7" complete assembly from Dime City Cycles and I used a set of Drag Specialties. So far, it works well.

If all else fails, try a Harley swap meet. Somebody at one of those will have a box full of chrome headlight pots, likely with mounts attached, and probably the sealed beams to fit. Also the tail and signals, if you are innovative enough to figure a mounting method. The Harley style headlight pots bolt right through your top triple tree.
