twin headlight system for hawk

has anyone attempted to replace the single stock headlight system, for a double like on current street bikes.

If Not....is it Possible?

Yep... It's been done... One way is to swap the entire front end plastics... Apparently the CBR600 from some years can be made to fit... Also the RC-51 plastics can be fitted with some work...

The other is to swap out the stock headlight for a mounting for two smaller projector lights... Here is one example... http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/TWIN-...91110009r26902

Then there is the option to go with race plastics and make a totaly custom job your self...

inderocker is an unknown quantity at this point
There was a direct replacement for the single headlight that turned it into a double unit from Wild Hair Accessories. Pretty ugly and dated IMO...

i like the yellow, this clearly gives me a better view!

kinda makes you think about what you really wanna do from this point, now seeing it on the bike.

Thanks Inderocker!

Looks good, Tweety, but it needs a little... something...




There are some cool dual kits for streetfighters here, not sure how hard it would be to adapt, or if it'd be worth it. I like the Hesa Headlight fire myself, that vertical stack is nice.

The girlies I like but the halo is a definete no-no... My bike is a no bling zone... It goes like crazy in the corners instead... It's so fun to do circles around the squids on blinged out bikes...

Altough if I do find a suitable shroud/ring in chrome or otherwise I will use that to cover the irregular shape of the projector itself... I like the clean black, but the way it looks is mostly to have it sealed up... No light leaking in the wrong places...

They went to the trouble to make it look like a HID projector... then put incandescent bulbs in it... doesn't make much sense to me...

Not to me neither... Altough the incandescent bulbs in a projector is a tad better than with an open reflector... They still suck in comparasion......

Tweety, is your HID a Low/High, or just low beam?

Low/High... solenoid... It's from a nissan G35...

BTW look here for a gallery... Text is in Swedish so it might not be usefull... But there are a few more snaps...

Basicly what it says about the HID... The rear two bolts used to adjust the aim is functional... The projector is mounted on a "frame" of 2 mm aluminium sheet that is brushed matte and painted black... and uses the 3 internal mount points... one fixed joint and two bolts...

Iteration 2 will be prettier... I have figured out how to hide the two hex bolts from view and in that process I'm going to tighten up the gap in a few places around the projector...

here are the projectors i picked up for 60 bucks, i plan on going HID with them but i have to test the housings first to see if they can take the extra heat.
