Order 66 (Fairing and Light Mods)

Suffice it to say... I am a STAR WARS GEEK and proud.
And now that, that is said and out of the way.....
I am modding my bike to reflect my love of Star Wars and the Sith in particular.
I've just purchased a racing fairing which I will begin to mod very soon but,
I am seeking some technical info and help from some of my fellow "Superhawkers"
I am wondering what the best lights would be to incorporate into the front since I will have to build the Light Bracket and harness from scratch.
And other technical issues that may arise. i.e. voltage converter, ect, ect.
The bike is called "Order 66" which was the Command Code given to the Clone Troopers to wipe out and purge the Jedi in order for the Sith to rise.
......... yea...... I'm a geek.
Anyway... here are the pics.
I would appreciate any ideas, feedback and help.
There will be other mods to the bike coming soon. i.e, LED Lights, Digital instrument panel, levers, grips, pegs, bolts, ect, ect
Thank you.


(This is my concept design)






This is me in my Sith Costume "Darth Calamitus"
My apprentice "Darth Wraithious" and I will take it for a spin together in full armor when it is complete.
Once more the Sith will ride again. Bwaahahahahahaha!

Very interesting, I would suggest for you to check Retrofit Source in GA they have plenty of HID lights you can probably use for your application including led lights and so on, you can call them and ask for recommendations as well, great guy's, many of us here worked with them on light upgrades.
The Retrofit Source online: headlight upgrades for all applications
I don't understand the extended swingarm though, this is not improving the bike, only the opposite.

May the force be with you, or shall I say the Dark Side

To get the best light, I would look into a HID retrofit kit for the larger of the three that you have sketched. You can get the whole kit from TRS :

Sportbike Stage III Kit - Complete Retrofit Kits from The Retrofit Source Inc

This way your Order 66 emulation isn't just aesthetic, but a noticeable upgrade with modern technology and great controlled light output. It is possible to run the light without a front cover as well (you can see my old pic in my signature) as long as the electronics are shielded from weather and dust. Worst case scenario you damage the glass which is replaceable for cheap.

The other two lights I would just use as running lights, but you could also get decent output from them if you'd like. Personally I'd find some cool LED fog lights and wire them into the third eye switch of the bike, but that's all very open to what you want. Or something like this:
Optilux H71010291 Model 1100 12V/55W Black Halogen Projector Fog Lamp Kit : Amazon.com : Automotive Optilux H71010291 Model 1100 12V/55W Black Halogen Projector Fog Lamp Kit : Amazon.com : Automotive


Notice your Sharkskinz fairing doesn't have the third eye light at the top below the windscreen, you sketched it in but that won't be there...

The HID retrofit kit is expensive, but very very worth doing it right while keeping the aesthetic you're going for.

BTW awesome red radiators, those things are sick!

Dude it has GOT to be a Flordia thing, I think you must have to have one to pass sunshine state inspection or something.

Mr. Fett... There are a lot of people on here to help out on the mechanical/electrical side of things, I love theme bikes done right! Ones that aren't just a couple of stickers on the tank...

Fair warning, though, you'll get no love for that cornering killer you've got bolted to your rear wheel!

I must admit my first reaction was "WTF is this"?? Then I see you are from Florida and it all makes sense (I'm not knocking the place I rent a condo in "CooCoo" Beach every year and love the weather!).

All joking aside I think it is a cool concept so follow your bliss my friend. That said, just from your drawings perhaps you could find a wrecked Ducati 748, 999 or something?? Looks pretty close to your drawings and may be a cheap boneyard / ebay find. Thats my 2 cents.

Keep us updated with pics and have fun!

Well... a few things.
When I bought her, she already had the extended swingarm and I thought... yep, that's getting yanked but then, I rode it home and it actually handled pretty well. I mean, I don't plan on dragging my knee at a buck 10 or anything and it DOES help when I snap that wick. Boom... SLINGSHOT!
The bike also has a Big Bore kit in. Jehi, Jay-Lo, Jihad or something like that, I dunno.
I do like the way it makes the bike look so, it's a keeper.
I only paid 1900 bucks for it on Craigslist.
My last bike was an 08 CBR-1000RR (Was stolen last year)
Hell... my first real streetbike was an 87 VFR Interceptor back when I was 18 back in 88 aka (In the way-back when) and other than deviating a few times over the years (ZX-7R / Ducati 916 / V-Max / GSXR-1100) I have always been faithful to the Big Red H
I am looking up those HID Headlights on the sights.
Order 66 is starting to look promising.
Still have not received my LED Tail / Turn-Signals and Chin-Scoop from E-Bay yet but, will this week. My Licence Plate (ORDR66) will be in from the DMV in a couple of weeks topped with the Vertical Side Mounted Bracket (Yes... not to most legal but.......) is gonna look nice.
I am putting Red LED's in key places as well to shine on engine and other places (Nothing gaudy or BUSAFIED)
Will be ordering a s*%t more stuff for it soon but, want to get first things first. Did get the Braided Cables in today so.... I am happy.
Also, on the drawing.... I made an error in the sketch. My new fairing does not have the third-eye and I will NOT be going with one so.... my bad.

Ride one without an extended arm back to back and then say that with a straight face. It's all relative, and it may have handled well compared to a chopper, but I'm not buying it

Awesome. Sounds like you're going to get the Star Wars look nailed.
