    The headlight came from a wrecked 1190SX. The bracketry was bent a little. So I spent some time reshaping it. I also cleaned up the headlight.

    I'm not to worried about cleaning up the plastics. They will get resanded or replaced anyway. I noticed something interesting though, the Laguna Blue is painted over white plastics. Do everyone with any color than white get painted plastics?

    And for anyone wondering about the dash. The Garmin Zumo 660 will fit like a glove when I'm done.

    You guys want to see something cool? I noticed the bottom bracket bolts right up to the lower triple tree. No modification. I have an aftermarket top triple on my bike. So I checked the standard triples on another project I'm working on. The bracketry bolt right up to standard lightning triple trees. It even looks like your ignition switches will exit the side of the brackets.

    Ok. Here's my last picture for tonight. Hopefully it gives you an idea what the 1190SX headlight might look like on an XB. I'm headed off to get some sleep. The project will take a new direction from here tomorrow.

    Today I worked some more on the headlight. I'm not using the original dash pod. So I've removed it and modified the bracketry. I've also figured where I'm going to put everything so it is neat and organized. The template is made for the base plate. I'll start working on the dash tomorrow.

    I agree with you. After trying the headlight on this bike, I decided I did not like it on there either. I didn't like the gap between the forks and headlight.

    My project bike, the background bike needed a headlight. Some time ago someone on that thread mentioned using an 1190SX headlight on it. So I decided to take you guys advice and leave the CR headlight on this bike and install it over there. Here's the thread for the other bike: http://www.buellxb.com/forum/showthr...949-XB-Fighter

    I am going to install the Crystal Clear plastics. I have a clear windscreen coming. In the end I may use the Kick Ash. But it is nice to have color options.

    I appreciate you guys feedback. Thanks!

    Integrated CR Headlight

    The EBR headlight wasn't what I wanted. So, I dropped another headlight on my bike.

    I've been working on it the last couple weeks. Here's the link to the write-up
