I am looking to upgrade my headlight, tail light and muffler. Right now everything on my bike is stock. What would I need to do to make the head light brighter (LED, Xenon, Halogen)? I am also interested in installing an LED tail light. Lastly, I would like a new exhaust with a lil more growl (still torn between Jardine and V&H). I am not much of a gear-head but am willing to do the easy tasks (I will consult a mechanic if need be). Any helpful advice and information is welcomed and appreciated. Much gratitude.

If you want a Vance&Hines do it now.They discontinued them,so whats left in the pipe line is it

I actually decided to go with the Jardine. Thanks for the advice though.

tail light: http://www.motodynamic.com/index.php?cPath=21&osCsid=lkepbnbtguduqg0lfqm8ni8sr0 (pricey but really worth it. its ALOT brighter then stock and has a cool stop alert)

exhaust: Jardine rt1 or could use the jardine header pipe and put a supertrapp muffler on it(best option)

headlight: go to ebay and type in "universal motorcycle headlight" or you could use a buell XB dual headlight

As for headlight, you could make your own. Here's a shot of mine. It's my first attempt at one and turned out really good. Just gotta mount my projector and there and it's good to go. Made out of fiberglass...

I've redone the paint so it doesn't look so crappy anymore
